In Engineering class we were giving the task to make and design our own skate boards. We also had to write an essay about how we came back from a bad experience, we called this having a skate boarders mentality. I wrote about a time I had to finish work for Human Geography on the last day of the semester that would put my grade up to passing. I was so focused on the essay and the different saw test that I never got a chance to make my skate board. Even if I wanted to make a skate board I still couldn’t, my class had run out of veneer. I thought that there would be no way I would be able to get a grade on my skate board. that’s when I met my partner, Miranda. We had worked on a previous project before. I found out that Miranda was afraid of saws and that she already glued up a skate board. this was the perfect opportunity for a co-lab. I asked my teacher and Miranda if I could work with her and they both said yes. I cut the skate board out and sanded the edge until it was nice and smooth. Miranda helped me paint the board and get it ready to put up at a local skate board shop.
