What I like about MNW
I appreciate that I get to come to MNW each day knowing that I will be surrounded by individuals - students and colleagues - pouring their hearts into their work.
A time of day
Late weekend mornings when I've been able to sleep in as late as I want, the sun is shining, and the coffee is already brewing.
Organizing fabric, paper, and other crafting gear
A favorite food
Banh mi sandwich
A surprising skill
I am fluent in Oppish.
