I am working hard to change a key personality trait â€“ chronic lateness. Seriously, this MUST change. It is my worst habit, it increases stress, and itâ€™s totally in my control.
Look, I was on time for my presentation tonight! 🙂
Great, BIG Operation Beautiful presentation. This was the biggest event that Iâ€™ve done to date. The Women in Business Society hosted their annual â€œBreaking the Glass Ceilingâ€ event, and I was the keynote speaker. Look, they even bought the book for every single attendee!
My keynote was about destructive negative self-talk, and afterwards, I hosted a breakout session in which I talked about â€˜the stories we tell ourselves.â€™ You know, that little voice inside you that says, â€œYou canâ€™t do this, you shouldnâ€™t do that.â€ I talked about finding opportunities in failures, blogging as a career, and getting financially responsible before taking career leaps (of course, Iâ€™m still learning about that!). There were a couple of other bloggers in the breakout session, too (Hi, Elizabeth!!!).
Next up: more panels.
Awesome ladies who helped organize things:
I had some time to spare so I opted to attend a panel called â€œTo Jimmy Choo or Not to Jimmy Choo?â€ and it was about preparing yourself for the realities of finances after you graduate. It was a helpful talk and definitely got my own gears turning about my endless quest to reign spending in.
Then, the attendees had a networking session. There was food available, but it was really meat-heavy so I just ate a fluffy cupcake. :) Which was awesome.
And since I knew room service at the hotel was over (and I donâ€™t have a car), I opted to quickly dash into the student lounge once the event was over and get some FOOD!
I love student centersâ€¦ so much activity going on at 9 PM.
I recalled a freelance article I wrote for Unigo.com called â€œEating Healthy on the Goâ€ and opted to start my dinner at the salad bar to ensure I got those veggies in. Most of the other food stations were closing down so the night, and I quickly grabbed a slice of pizza.
I am KNACKERED.
Look at this bed. Doesnâ€™t it look comfy?
Going to dive in!
