Tiling at Ikea

There were plenty available, so I started tiling the plane.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to finish.

    IKEA kicked me out for stealing their paper rulers. We measure circles in my class to try to find pi.

    I took a couple of those measuring tapes, too. That’s funny that they actually threw you out!
