I woke up at 5:30am…
WHO IS CAPABLE OF FUNCTIONING AT THIS GOD FORSAKEN HOUR???
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.
THIS IS BEING JUDGED????
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:
12:30pm – 2:00pm – Listened to Mary Walsh give a comedic talk
2:00pm – 4:00pm – Ate lunch downtown and explored a bit
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
8:00pm – went out downtown to get ice cream and walk around with the friends I met today!
All in all, it was a very lovely day filled with unexpected and wonderful surprises!
