I think that the Gateway course to the MiW was one of the best classes I have taken this semester, and so far at Michigan. It was really challenging in a lot of ways; having no strict guidelines or prompts was frustrating at times. Yet, it was also an amazing experience to have the time and the guidance to work on a project that I was passionate about and had ideas for, in the way that I wanted to do it. I agree with what Jason said in an early blog post, that my favorite part about the class was actually answering the attendance questions at the beginning of every class. It made me think a lot about myself and learn a lot about everyone else. Overall, it was a great semester!
