suck ass fire alarm and conference

Saturday was pretty eventful. For one, the damn fire alarm went off at 3:30AM. Normally I would not care but I had to get up in less than four hours to get ready to present in my school's Academic Excellence Conference. I had to option of waiting inside the great hall of the dorm across where I live but I opted to stay outside because if this happened to me in Buffalo, it would be ten times worse so I might as well get used to it now.
I decided to get up at 7AM after waiting out there in the cold for half an hour. Grad school is not going to go easy on me so a lack of sleep is also part of preparing for what will await me this fall. I pick up my folder with my luncheon tickets and stuff a quarter after 8AM and decided to work on my model for architecture studio til 12:45PM where I met Josh, Christine and Laura for lunch. Then after that I presented and there were a lot more people who showed up than I expected.
Among those who came was my research advisor Dr. Menees which surprised me because she's always busy - she's the department chair and has family to take care of. My awesome physics teacher and lab teacher from last semester also stopped by and they expressed the most interest in my research that it actually made me laugh as bad as that may sound. It was the president of our school who made me nervous because I did not want to look like a retard or dork in front of her. She stayed there talking to me for like twenty minutes. She's a nice lady. All in all the presentation flew by quick and I was glad to be a part of it.
