One of my articles was apparently part of a grad seminar curriculum this semester (a first Run in circles flail), and the prof emailed me to say that my paper was "the most humanizing" he's read on the topic. That is literally the one word I'd most want to describe my work, and pretty much the whole point of everything I do. Augh. Happy tears

I presented a research poster for a small, regional graduate student conference at my university this past weekend. I'd never done a poster presentation before, so I basically had to teach myself how to put one together, and I was really proud with how it turned out, even if I didn't really think it was anything special compared to others. During the conference itself, several judges walked by each of the posters asking the presenters to talk them through their study, so it was a great learning experience that forced me to really engage with people about my research, and I wasn't as nervous as I expected to be given how socially anxious and awkward I am, which was also a plus.

And it also turns out that I won an award for the best poster in my research category! There wasn't a lot of competition, since it was a fairly small conference with all disciplines represented, so there weren't many people in my particular category. But it's still a great feeling.

I finally managed to learn how to start a car after half a week of fruitless lessons and attempts! Even got to drive a little in the parking lot! Eeeeeee! 😁
