How sweet it is
I must say: that went pretty well. Despite a few issues here and there, the presentation session today was a success, a process involving multiple people in multiple countries. I feel I delivered my slides with some degree of confidence and poise. I also felt that the question period was also in my favour, with no tricky ones sneaking in thankfully. Nenad and Pablo also presented here in Spain with me, and both did an amazing job. I have all the respect in the world for them doing that in their second language.
It doesn’t really feel like I’m finished yet, but I know that will come, perhaps tomorrow when I fly out of the country. This has obviously been a major chapter in my life, a chapter that is fairly well chronicled on this website, but one which is about to end. It is definitely saddening to leave behind so many memories, but that is what they are: memories, and I will carry them with me for the rest of my life. It has been a pretty interesting 18 months; an experience I never could have imagined. I haven’t quite determined what I will do with this site now that my Europe Adventure is drawing to a close. I will likely keep posting here at least until after graduation and I get settled to see if I may end up living in Europe… who knows. If I do stop posting here, I will definitely continue somewhere else, and this site will remain available as an archive of this incredible time in my life.
Now to pack and let loose a bit. :)
