I can't believe that I was in Milwaukee over a week ago! After the whirlwind events of Friday, Saturday was a bit more tame. I went to 4 panels (the first was at 8 AM), ate lunch at the hotel, and then prepared for something fun. The conference had a talent showcase on Saturday night and I contributed to the showcase with a song! As a part of my warm up, I had to do this:
That's right. I jumped on my bed. And documented my wild antics. Sorry Mom and Dad- I had to. And it was so much fun! I can't remember the last time I did this- maybe in middle school?
After jumping on the bed and (actually) rehearsing my song, "Leaving on a Jet Plane," Deanne, me, and my guitar walked over to the conference hotel and met up with the other two girls from school who also attended the conference (Margaret and Megan). Before the talent showcase began, the DJ started the night off with a few dance songs. I didn't join in until after the talent showcase ( I was too nervous), but I couldn't resist capturing some of the festivities:

After the talent showcase was complete, Deanne and I hit the dance floor. Now, I am not a very skilled dancer (despite efforts to become one in grade school and middle school), but I was among scholars. There were quite a few skilled dancers from a few communication departments, but for the most part, my youth and extroversion were to my advantage in the dancing department. Especially for The Macarena. Yes, the Macarena.
