Greetings from THE BAR

As soon as I opened my room, a wave of excitement washed over me. Not because I'm excited or ready to take this test. Not because I'm excited to be away from my husband for a week. I got excited because my room
1) Has air conditioning (its 1 million degrees here)
2) Smells good
3) Has a giant bed
4) HAS A FRIDGE! and not one of those sissy mini-fridges full of crap, a completely empty fridge for my water, gatorade, and lunches for the week
5) HAS A MICROWAVE! for heating up my yummy lunches. At least they will be yummy now that they can be heated up. (I made giant stuffed potatoes)

After checking in, I walked to the Convention Center to see how far away I was. It's an 8 minute walk. One of the things no one tells you about is "the walk". I kept getting giggly as I would pass another person who was gaging the distance between their hotel and the Convention Center. I passed them on my way there, passed them on my way back. A grip of people, all walking by themselves, head down, avoiding eye contact, and then spinning around upon destination and heading back. I even watched one guy do "the drive". It didn't make me feel so good watching him make illegal U-turns up and down the street.

  1. I'm so glad your room has all of these things! Where are you at? I took it in Ontario. I stayed at my mom's house (15 minutes away), and she drove me to and from every day, so I could relax. :)
