How To Keep the Romance Alive(tips on maintaining your COLAB relationships)
by: Andrew and Megs
-When Skyping, it is important to always look your best.  To achieve Megs’ look, do not shower all day, pull hair up into a matronly bun, and wear a Bud Light “Always Worth It” oversized tee.
-To counter the “Megs Look”, follow Andrew’s lead and drink large quantities of Rum with a splash of adorably seasonal Apple Cider out of a nostalgia-inducing Portland Starbucks mug (big ups to the SBUX beneath PSU broadway dorm!).
And people say long distance is hard…..

I wanted you all to be the first to know.  I’m making the big move to Portland- couldn’t have done it without #COLABpdx.  I’m equally off-the-wall excited and scared shitless.  Here we go…

GET IT GIRL!

So there will be a longer recap of the COLAB experience down the road when I’m not busy silently weeping in a corner of the Portland Airport waiting for my flight back to the East Coast.

In the meantime, here are some photos of my teammates.  I’m obsessed with all of you.  And will stalk your whole lives on the boardwalk

With less than 48 until our presentation, Hi-RES got desperate and found an empty classroom in PSU to work in.

What am I doing the final weekend before the big COLAB presentation to Tillamook?  Oh, just enjoying Blacksburg, VA’s local art scene!
Or…… designing and gchatting with Hi-RES team members while frantically trying to get ready for my good friend Emily’s wedding in a hotel room shared with two other friends.

This week’s Friday team meeting was graciously hosted by FRANK. 
You know it’s a good work day when someone spikes a dry-erase marker and screams “TOUCHDOWN”.
