I am Homesick

Today was the big day. It was finally time for our presentation. I woke up at 6:15 AM and attempted to do my make up. It looked fine as long as you didn't get to close to me... So I decided not to wear my business suit to class because I get sweaty on the 15 minute walk there. I rushed to breakfast to please my mother, who told me to eat something before I left. I grabbed a cinnamon bun and was out the door. By 7:30 AM I was in the building, ready (sort of) for my presentation. 

We didn't start of course until 8:30 AM, but I prepared myself as best as possible while I waited. Unfortunately, when it was time to present, I didn't do as well as I had hope. I never got to practice with the clicker before so I messed up my slides. I was so nervous I was shaking. I do that a lot. I was disappointed in myself. So the rest of the day dragged on painfully. 

Accomplished at least one thing here at Cornell
At the very end of the day, Mark told us that we were going to take a picture, full out a group sheet, get our memos back and then we could leave, which meant there were no office hours. We took our picture--I was in the very front because I'm short-- and filled out the survey sheets. Then Sabrina handed me my graded memo. And lo and behold! I got an A! I was so surprised. I guess even though I didn't do well on my presentation at least I did have a good memo. 

I walked back to my dorm feeling good--a little too good because instead of taking a nap, like I should have, I watched Neflix. I met up with my cohort and Mr. Chan-Law at 6:30 PM and we ate dinner. I tried Cornell chocolate pudding. It was tasty, better than a pudding cup. 

When I got back to my dorm, I began studying for my quiz tomorrow. It will cover hotel companies, their brands and their corporate structure. I have to study once again! Thanks for reading and for your ongoing support!
