Day 43 - Last Day

We passed out books. We signed them. We said goodbye.

Thanks for a great year.

We were destined to crash.

We were destined to fly. To make history.

We crashed. And it was beautiful.

Day 39 - Memory Lane

  • We looked at the class book one last time before I submit it. 
  • We went down memory lane by looking through the previous 38 days of class. 
  • We reflected on the class (#21: Broken Things).
  • I think someone took my G2 pen. :(
