Much like Assignment 1, Assignment 2 was also a valuable experience that definitely warrants a follow-up. From start (which happened some two weeks later than we all would’ve liked, namely on Saturday morning) to finish, it was a wild ride full of dying to Brenda, giggling, uncalled-for profanity, deliberately dying to Brenda for illustration purposes, trying (and failing) to hide my Justin Bieber sheets (a gag gift from a friend) and struggling to get the technology to work.

Massive thanks to Andrew and Allison, without whom this would not have been possible.
I’m looking forward to hearing about everyone else’s team experiences!
