I wrote a speech last night. Managed to unstress long enough to write. At first I had a hard time writing it, but then it got easier and easier. Even better, I worked in Tolkein quotes instead of some of the other boring graduation quotes. I am so proud of myself. I didn't freak out, I didn't stumble, and there were people in the audience with tears in their eyes - my speech made people cry - it doesn't get better than that.

Given that I only had 1 week's notice to write a 5-8 minute speech on top of writing a 12 page term paper and everything else that went down I am feeling invincible!

I finally got my CS sweatshirt, as well as 300.00 in professional development money at Rice University. Not sure what I will do with it - but hey - professional development is a good thing, right?
