"Reset your password." "You've got to be kidding me" Julianna spat, throwing her notebook to the side. She had anticipated there would be some issues, or kickback. But this was the last thing she was anticipating. She was hoping to be in and out, nice and quick. Nobody would even know she was even there. But then of course there was the password. And not only was there a password, but her three guesses had been unsuccessful, and was prompted to reset the password.
The Set Up
We drove up the snowy, winding road towards the cozy A-frame cabin. A nice vacation is exactly what I needed to reset before I resumed the last semester of my master's degree. It was a last-minute trip decision on my part; my friend Anna had originally planned on coming, but due to an emergency at work, she couldn't. That's where I came in. I was planning on spending the weekend lazing on the couch and catching up on the latest episodes of shitty Netflix reality shows. I suppose spending a weekend in a secluded cabin was better than what I had planned.
The sky was dark and unforgiving. The wind whipped around the trees, the missing persons flyers blowing around wildly. Jenna’s voice was hoarse from all the yelling over the last few hours.

It was the kind of thing you read on Facebook, saw in the papers; but it didn’t happen to you.
Billy Talent: Crisis of Faith
If you’re a Billy Talent fan than this is an album you’ve been anxiously awaiting.

And of course, like all albums that came before them, they sure did not disappoint.
