  1. Quiz this Friday, due 11:59PM California time!
  2. Plug for the office hours, once again! Let me know if you’d like to discuss anything, especially the P1!
  3. After you folks turn your writing assignment into Eli review, I am going to open up my email to allow for people to send me that/drafts of their P1. Expect around a 24-48 hour turnaround time, and because of this, I am going to STOP accepting drafts of P1 on Wednesday 11:59PM California time!
