Today was our official last day of class, so a few of my classmates shared their passion projects with the rest of us. I didn’t feel like mine was worth sharing because I hadn’t reached a final product, but as I listened to the presentations I realized that everyone’s project was an imperfect journey –… Continue reading Passion Project and Course Reflections
I’ve been looking forward to this class all semester.

I completed all my scheduled workouts… Continue reading Passion Project: Setbacks
