  1. Your post was very honest and by knowing you that was how you were in the beginning of the year. You have changed and the DLC seems to be really changing you. I had the same problem with the technology, just like you did, but now I am beginning to comprehend the technology better. You seem to be progressing within the DLC and you are a great student.

  2. Thanks for your kind words in commenting! In response to "I do wonder though if your lorax project hadn't been as successful as it was if you still would have enjoyed it". I enjoy all of my projects no matter how successful....or well.....unsuccessful. I love seeing how they've changed and years from now looking back at the DLC I will still be proud. Proud of my project and proud of my peers! As an adult, if I become extremely successful in life I'll blame the DLC!
