March 6th and I’m nearly done with my project. To think for the past month or so I’ve mostly just been waiting for the day to happen and now that it’s past I have thank you’s to send, some survey analysis to do, and a report to write up.
That is all.
After the 125 hours I’ve put into this already that sounds like nothing. No more emailing people I’ve never met or talked to and inviting them to my event. No more sudden communication to figure out financial misunderstandings or re-configuring things due to sickness.
I never expected it to run so well.
Apparently my memory and thoughts on how things like this run was accurate. No major set-backs. We ran a bit behind schedule for a short period of time, but that was to be expected with the rather crazy rain (leading to crazy traffic) we’ve had the past few days. But all the booths and talks and everything were only about 15 minutes late.
Not bad, not bad.
I had 40 people pre-register and it looks like about 20 people were walk-ins who are not getting included in my event-impact data. Still, 60 people a good third at least who I didn’t know isn’t bad at all.
Though Julie was sick and unable to attend to participate in the panel I still get to meet her in a few weeks for my senior project research. Ian and Peter were both super enthusiastic about being invited to participate and said they’d gladly help me out in pursuing oceanography in whatever ways they can.
Contacts, experience, and spreading knowledge.
I’d call that a job well done.
The event is tonight everyone!
As I’ve already sailed past the 120 hour mark it comes as a bit of a relief, but I’ve loved putting this event together and I hope the event goes well.
One week until the event! If you have yet to sign up, please do!
Registration is not mandatory unless you wish to attend the panel.
