and wish me luck on March 24-26th. I'll be in Memphis, TN at the Peabody Hotel. At 8am on the 25th i have to give a 20min presentation on the experiment i designed and ran and what i was hoping to learn and whether the results i gathered held up my hypotheisis.

I hate giving presentations and I have a sever case of stage fright.

I know many may not know what i'm babbling about or care, but for those few who may, please wish me luck.

Cause I'm definately gonna need it.

majorly definately, absolutely gonna need it.
just give me a minute, i'm thinking...

You don't need any luck. I know you did your best for it, and you will get trough.

(no "i hope you will do good" but "i know you will do it right.")

Thumbs up and give 'm hell.

Well, I'm not back at school, but I am back from the convention.





And according to my proffessors and others I know who saw me present, I did well. I don't think I did, but they said I did, and I know that part of it was knowing that people here and at home were wishing me the best.



Now, to add more dates for wishing me luck...looks like i'll be making the presentation at least twice more, once somewhere around April 14th or something, I think that weekend or something, and again somewhere around April 21st or so. This one should be easier since I've already done it once, but I'd still appreciatie it if ya'll kept me in ya'll thoughts and kept wishin me luck.


Thanx again!

Just an update on my experiment (For those who care/know):

I have finally finished gathering data, and have run the analysis on the data. As it turns out, while not all of my hypotheses were supported, a couple were, and a couple others were close to significance. The biggest problem with the whole thing was the small number of participants.

Now I just have to finish redoing my presentation and then make the presentation this friday at 3pm my time, and that's it, its all over.

:)

And, thanx to the feedback from professors and some of ya'll in chat, if I ever decided to do it again, I have a couple new directions I could go adn a few changes I could make.

But the likelyhood of me willingly putting myself through this again is slim-to-none. LOL

Thanx again ya'll.

According to my horrible timekeeping you should be done by now, and no matter what you did, and what the outcome was:

CONGRATULATIONS.

there...
