I am working hard to change a key personality trait – chronic lateness. Seriously, this MUST change. It is my worst habit, it increases stress, and it’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 I’ve done to date. The Women in Business Society hosted their annual “Breaking the Glass Ceiling” 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 ‘the stories we tell ourselves.’ You know, that little voice inside you that says, “You can’t do this, you shouldn’t do that.” I talked about finding opportunities in failures, blogging as a career, and getting financially responsible before taking career leaps (of course, I’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 “To Jimmy Choo or Not to Jimmy Choo?” 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 don’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 centers… so much activity going on at 9 PM.
I recalled a freelance article I wrote for Unigo.com called “Eating Healthy on the Go” 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. Doesn’t it look comfy?
Going to dive in!
