Today I added citations to my PowerPoint. Then I asked Dr. Wechsler for improvements on my presentation. Then I continued to practice my presentation. Three people presented before me, Peter, Howard, and Cole. While they were talking I continued to practice the one slide that I kept spending three to four minutes on so that I can reduce the time to one minute. When I actually presented, I forgot about any of the recommendations that Dr. Wechlser told me and I forgot to say a lot of things and ended up talking for 6-7 minutes instead of taking 11 minutes like when I was practicing. I was glad to finally be done with the presentations, but it was kind of intimidating to talk in front of so many people.
Afterwards, we all went to the Haleiwa Joe’s restaurant and I had a Luau Lumpia (?). The food was really good. I cannot believe that we are going back home and I will never be coming back to the barn or the Ka’a’awa Valley. I am happy that I will be able to go back to my home where there are no barn animals making noises and most importantly, not a lot of mosquitoes. However, I feel that I will miss being in the barn with everyone.
