Yearbook game time!
Check out color: the color matching game, a cool totally nerdy way to pass the time. Try to match hue, saturation, color complements and more. But do it quickly!
(Kudos to you, mountainshighletusdream!)

Yearbook: for many of us, it's our second home, our second family. We're the kids with the cool cameras and the cool techniques. We're the best photographers, writers and designers on campus. We've got neat computers and neat software, and we've got the ability to capture the entire year for our student body to look back on from now until forever. Our books live on for decades. Everyone will show our production to their kids and their kids' kids.

This is the blog for inspiration, help, venting, and anything and everything else you want it to be. Enjoy, fellow yearbookers yerds!
