You'll Have That
Well, capstone presentations took place yesterday, and I thought everyone did a fabulous job! I was so impressed with everyone's work and experience and all the time they put into the presentations. Mine didn't exactly go as planned due to some technical problems...but I made it through. After it was all over, I remembered something Dr. Barner said once. It was something along the lines of it's not always how good you are, but how well you handle yourself when things go wrong. I was so worried about the technical glitches that I almost gave up on the rest of my presentation being anything valuable. Now, I can't really recall what I talked about, or even if I made sense, but I handled myself the best I could and I think that is all anyone can hope for. No one asks for these things to happen, but they do. It's not easy trying to fit 4 years of work, memories, projects, laughs, tears, and accomplishments into 15 minutes...and after the night was over, I couldn't help but wonder if my time spent at Westminster was productive at all. I feel like I have learned a lot, and have grown as a person even more, but I guess not enough to know what I want to do with it all. I'm in no hurry to start a "career" or even begin to plan where my life will take me from here. For now, I'm happy just thinking about all the memories I will leave Westminster with and how it has forever changed me. To all of the friends I have met here, and all of the professors I have had--Thank you for helping me find myself along the way!!
