Week 14 Final

So this year has been quite something especially with the trials and tribulation experienced. It was hard and stressful to keep up with everything that needed to be done (easier than the rollercoaster :) but as a team we we were able to divide and conquer even though we weren't the best all the time but we ultimately finished what we needed to do. It good getting to learn different thing and having more hands on experience. In our group all our strengths differed so we able to learn and gain something from each other. Everything in life is a learning experience, coming together was a beginning, keeping it together was a process, and working together was a success.
