The class photo!
Now, on to the photo itself! (Click to enlarge.)
We all look so good! I hope everyone who participated had fun doing it, and we hope to do it again next year!
This was surprisingly fun to participate in, even though all it entailed was taking a picture (which definitely didn't take me 20+ tries). There's something especially humanizing to see faces assigned to the names and pictures we interact with, and that's something I'm very much here for (not to in any way disparage those less comfortable with showing their face).
Hopefully we'll get to see more faces next year as well!
Thanks, and my congratulations to everyone else who made it into the class photo this year.
I should make an important mention about something regarding my photo this year guys though, and I hope you'll all understand how I'm feeling about it, as this year's event was bittersweet for me. As many of you noticed, once again I'm not alone in the picture, however, it pains me to tell you all that the friend in the picture with me suddenly passed away a couple of weeks after the picture was taken (I'm in the blue shirt, he was in the black shirt). Like me, his real name was Kyle as well, which made the news I received about his death even more painful on a personal level since he was the first friend I made with the same name as me. So if everyone (including staff) doesn't mind, I'd like to dedicate this year's class photo in my friend's memory please.
It was an honor participating in this. A part of me kept telling me I'd look out of place amongst others but I'm glad I decided to submit a photo regardless. Lots of good looking people this year, even cute I'd say!
