This is brainstorming, as you can see. I haven't been as detailed with the verse and such as I was with the previous class, because I'm waiting to hear from some friends for lunch.
Once again, what do you think? Are there things I should totally add? Something I'm so missing that it's unforgiveable?
Is there something I should drop because it sucks?
I'm at about 40 hours, so for anything I add, I need to drop or cut something.
