Dani Yu, a longtime member of Bandersnatch, passed away in a freak car accident on Friday, April 26th. Before commencing a six hour Advanced QM study session at one of her favorite cafés, Dani was organizing her bullet journal to organize her weekend plans. These plans included watching five hours of SpongeBob SquarePants, enjoying some healthy servings of chicken skewers from Ganadara Bar with her longtime high school friends, and of course, serving joy and coffee during her regular Sunday shift at her mom’s café.
Admiring the simplistic beauty of her organized notebook, Dani was inspired to snap a quick picture for her Instagram. She angled her new iPhone XR with robotic precision, retaking the photo roughly 52 times before deeming it appropriate to post. Then suddenly, from the corner of her eye, she noticed Matthew Goode trotting on the other side of the street.
Dani prepared herself to sprint across Sherbrooke Street to chase after him. She picked up her handy tote bag, put on her signature trench coat and made a break for it! Unfortunately, she was sporting her newly purchased AirPods (listening to none other than Nothing But Thieves), and didn’t hear the incoming car cruising down the street.
Dani now watches us from above, where she continues to play Tetris and Trivia Crack 2, alongside her longtime friends Boxer (from Animal Farm), Basil (from The Picture of Dorian Gray) and all the turtles she was unable to save by using her metal straws.
