It’s so crazy. This time last week I had a knotted stomach anticipating this experience. And this morning I woke up and realized I’m sad; I don’t get to hang out with all these amazing people all day.
I’m ready to go home – and my brain is so full of information I can’t even fathom the idea of more panels… but I’m going to miss my PW family.
Maybe the warm fuzzy jar should’ve been saved for today. Last night it didn’t feel like the end… today really does.
Thank you PW staff and faculty for making our journey so amazing. It was a truly enlightening week that offered so much direction that I am fiercely excited to pursue. You made things fun – and funny. You were more than accommodating. So grateful. Thank you.
Ridgerock staff: thank you for keeping us extremely well fed. The food and the space was so amazing and definitely added to the entire experience. I will definitely go to FB and sing your praises!
Elisa & Nimbus crew – thank you for rocking it all week and working so damn hard. It’s insane the hours and dedication invested in ONE song. You guys are rad.
To my PW peers. Thank you for inspiring me. Thank you for lifting me, for being genuinely interested. Thank you for sharing your craft. Thank you for accepting me – and letting me be your friend!
I want to add to my warm fuzzy that I wrote in your jar:
