Hey guys

I just wanted to say this class has been really awesome, and you all are a great group. I know I will probably be an allusive senior next semester and not around too much, but do not hesitate to say hi or whatever. You’re all great and super fun.

Thanks and hope you all enjoy intersession! Catch up on sleep. Seriously.
