mid-term presentation today!!!

We worked all weekend to prepare our mid-term presentation. Today we'll be presenting our project to president and chief academic officer of our school . Tomorrow we'll be presenting to our department chairs and also instructors from various majors. Last night we met our project advisors Karen and Tisha...tighten up the presentation even more. Right now it is 8am and our first presentation is... in 6 hours? I have few more things to finish and hopefully we'll be ready to rock the board room:)
