    What’s weird is that Charlie talks about you guys all the time telling us little stories and showing all your portfolios, it’s like we kinda know you guys just a little… collectively I remember seeing Johanna’s Portfolio, Kevin’s and a Navin’s.

    I’ve seen a lot of VCU Portfolios over here and it’ll be really inspiring to see what he can do with our sorry batch!

    Hey Nien,

    I just created my mandatory website/blog thing that we’re doing for Kelly next semester. Could you check it out and tell me what you think? If you could link to it that would be awesome too.
