Howdy, puzzlin’ partners! I may be in the thick of studying for finals, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have some crossword time to spare!

Today’s puzzle is a themeless collab with the illustrious Skateboard P, sometimes known as Paolo Pasco! As always, Paolo has been putting out banger after banger over on his site Grids These Days, which you already follow if you don’t live under a rock. Making stuff with him is always a blast, oh and it’s his frickin birthday today! 🎉

Paolo says: it’s always a great time working with adam! his cluing voice is incredible, and our puzzle sensibilities really vibe. this site’s been all bangers, and i’m honored to be a part of it. now if you’ll excuse me i’m gonna try to break this post <br/><div><span

Give it a shot, and enjoy!
