I feel loved
Today i defended my thesis at 9am and then presented it to whomever wanted to hear about it at 7:30pm. It was a day o' the thesis, that's for sure. Overall both went well, I think. About what i expected so that was good. And i won the made up award from Claire for having the most fans at my presentation. Basically the presentations are supposed to be 10-15 minutes long, SUPPOSED to be, most people went waaaay over, and it's just an overview of what you've been working on for the past year or so. It's so the underclassmen can come and see what you did so that they can get ideas for their theses and for anyone else who wants to come and see you. Somehow I managed to get about 25 people to mine. Which is about 25 more people than most have at theirs. I'm not quite sure how i was able to convince that many people that it would be fun to come listen to me talk, but I did. It was great to have a cheering section! Made me feel loved and appreciated. And since I was third out of the four people in my session to present, most of my fans got restless/had to leave and go do stuff so they all took off as soon as i finished. It made me laugh. But i'm very thankful that they all came out to support me. And i'm thankful that it's all behind me now.
