Day 2! My morning has a routine now… Shower, Starbucks, and social media. Then, check the Whova app for updates and my class schedule, and head to class across the street. No rental cars, no Uber, just walk… Love it!

· Appreciating Conflicting Evidence: Analysis and Resolution Develops Broader Research with Rebecca Whitman Koford, CG, CGL

Why do I always choose the most challenging lectures? Well, you either sink or swim, right? I tend to just tread water, though. I am just thankful for the syllabus to re-read when I get home. Today was the first time to hear Judy Russell in-person since Raleigh in 2017, 5 years ago! She did not disappoint! Yes, I like all the speakers, but Judy takes the cake.
As you can see, in my blog posts I do not critique the lectures or even recap them. Why? Education is personal for me. Did I get as much out of the session than my friend sitting right next to me? Maybe, maybe more, or maybe less. It’s personal. If you want to know “the secrets”, book your next flight to NGS in Richmond.
Got Photos? I do…
