Presentation Day

Posted on Updated on

So today is the day. I’ve been having anxiety nightmares about this for weeks—this afternoon (3:46, to be exact) I’m presenting my capstone project. I’m trying not to think about the fact that I’ve essentially been working towards this for the past four years, but, well…yeah.

I worked late yesterday and came in to work early today so I can be there for all the presentations (required). In typical Jess fashion, I packed plenty of snacks: IMG_2361

I feel like this photo says a ton about how my eating habits have changed over the past 4 years too! In 2009, I’d have definitely had a few packs of splenda or some kind of artificially-sweetened yogurt, and soy crisps instead of, uh, turkey jerky (awkward name, but hey). There would also have been a giant diet coke involved. Maybe the Gnu bar would have been a Luna Bar. And the sliced green peppers? Ain’t nobody got time for that!

Haha thanks for putting up with some of my delirious posts lately. I see light at the end of the tunnel!

    Good luck, good luck! The advice I’ve been getting about my upcoming dissertation defense presentation is to remember that you know way more about your topic than you think. You’ve been thinking about it for four years, which is longer than anyone in the audience has been. YOU GOT THIS. !

    […] I survived Tuesday’s presentation.  I have no idea what kind of grade I got,and honestly, at this point, I don’t even care. […]
