Sorry for fail pun.
So that Gala... was long. We had a conference starting from 9 until 2-ish (Michael, I loathe you. "All fellows MUST be there by 8" was a silly thing to say when you didn't even show up until a quarter till 9) but I got to meet a lot of interesting people. I wish I got more business cards though, from the likes of Ms. Doi and Mr. Imada.
Long day was long. And cold. That hotel was at least 60 degrees Fahrenheit or somethin' because I was shivering all the time, even with my jacket.
I was told to make a small speech during lunch, and was so nervous that I felt like I could die of embarrassment or somethin' (during the conference, about twenty or so minutes before lunch was supposed to begin, I was asked by Michael to speak and I should have just said no >3<) Add in the fact that I didn't eat anything but the mashed potatoes and string beans (no one could accurately tell me if it was pork or chicken and I rather not have another issue like Wednesday night), I was pretty miserable.
The moment lunch ended, we had to go back to COREL training, which was pretty much doing our presentation. Michelle's l337 prezi skills saved the day because people were too interested in her presentation than what we were saying. My ears were so red, I was thankful my hair was out to hide it. The YA who goes to school in England pretty much blasted me for agreeing with nuclear energy but, oh well. Nuclear energy is still a better alternative to coal.
After that, I then found out I would have to ad hoc another speech again for the dinner. Diana and I had to do a "commentary" bit before reading the names of the supervisors who joined us for dinner. It also sucked because I couldn't run to get myself food. Embarrassment rains again. I couldn't even leave after that since I had to wait for a certificate since the program's done... For everyone else.
At least the sauce they had with the salmon was pretty tasty.
