  1. Oh no! I knew I was forgetting something important at Mosaic today… Flight Training!! Boo.

    I don’t know if there was more to this exercise than I see here, but I will let you know that

    – I have a degree in evolutionary biology (genetics)
    – And a math minor (up to calculus & beyond)

    If you want support in learning about either of those things!

  2. I love these lists. Will you keep adding to them, or was this just a one time jumping off point? Like, just off the top of my head, to your skills I would add empathy, helping others, willingness to try new things, following through on commitments; and to things you’ve done: created and executed escape rooms, choreographed dance routines, performed for hundreds of people, designed things in photoshop, illustrated a book, babysat, edited video…

    1. This was a one time thing not unlike your creative thinking process! We (Gabe, Will, Liberty and I) did this at our first official Wings meeting before we decided our first sprint and stuff like that. I suppose I COULD add to it, but that wasn’t originally the intent of the exercise. We took these lists and decided out of that what we wanted our first sprint to be (I chose genetics).
