Because I am going here (for purely academic reasons, too!):
What for? Well, I'm glad you asked. My thesis advisor suggested I apply to present my research at the Southwestern Social Science Association's annual conference. So, I did that several week ago, and this past week I got the email saying I was accepted!! Awesome thing is it is held in Las Vegas over spring break, so I don't have to miss class (just had to include that so you KNOW I'm a nerd!).
Down side, I have to pay for it. But-- my advisor is amazing and has given me multiple ways to get that taken care of :)
And, as much as I would LOVE for Matt to come with me, the trip would be at two months out from the wedding. We would be in Las Vegas, the wedding chapel capital of the world
So, instead-- my mom and my aunt are coming with me! I really didn't want to go by myself, that just seemed shady. When I was telling my mom about it, I mentioned that it would give us the chance to see this show:
|Yes. That is me walking across Abbey Road|
|This is John Lennon's army jacket we got to wear at the Hard Rock Vault in London.|
Now that this opportunity popped up for me to go to Vegas, my mom and aunt are jumping at the chance to go see the show. We are so so so excited!!!!!!!! I'm slightly nervous about presenting my research at a professional conference, but that'll be fine. I hope!
