CPA; Day 1

I woke up at 5:30am…



Quick breakdown of today:

7:30am – Went to a Breakfast/Orientation for individuals attending CPA for the first time. Guess what? I MADE FRIENDS! WOOOOOOO! Also, had the opportunity of eating the most delicious carrot cake/muffin thing in the world and I will die happy if I can eat it once more.

8:30am – 10:30am – attended talks and got ready for my poster presentation.

10:30am – 12:00pm – presented my poster.

As I was presenting my poster, three people came up to me and all of a sudden mentioned they were going to judge my poster.




Sooo I did my spiel, not really worrying what the judges might think of me and my research – I just enjoyed explaining to them what I had researched and was excited to share the knowledge that I had learned throughout the year.

Aaaaand this sort of happened:

Chilled Spicy Peanut Noodle Bowl from Rebar – super healthy and super delicious. If I have time during the remainder of my stay, I will definitely go back to eat more from this restaurant! 10/10 would recommend.

4:00pm – 8:00pm – Went back to my hotel room to relax, ate some grapes, watched the finale of Blindspot (OMFG), aaaaand may have taken a nap
