Girl Power

It is good to be reminded sometimes that I can do anything if I put effort into it. I presented today for the first time at a writing conference as a teacher consultant. I had a packed room. It was nerve-wracking and exhilirating at the same time. I felt like the presentation was a little disorganized and random. Most of the comments I had were positive but it is amazing to me how I let the negative comments bother me so much. One participant said it was a waste of time and I was quite bothered by that. Oh well, you can't please everyone. Practice makes perfect too. The more I present the better I will get at it. Next time I am positive it will go better. I love this picture I found. I need to hang it up to remind me how amazing and superhero like all of us are.

Cowboy Breakfast

My roommates and I got up at 4:00 am on Thursday to attend the Annual Cowboy breakfast that is the opening event for the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo. It is free to the public. We ate biscuits and gravy, sausage biscuits, breakfast tacos, chocolate milk, and orange juice. I heard on the radio that the event planners were trying to set a record for the most cups of coffee served at an event. We didn't help with the numbers there, but I am glad I went. They were letting people see if they could ride a mechanical bull for 8 seconds. The people we saw try didn't even last 2. It was entertaining.
