Presentation of findings

Up bright and early. Morning routine.

Sat down at my desk and started working. I looked over the presentation I had made and familiarized myself with it.

At noon, I headed off to campus to hear the presentations. In turn, every group gave a presentation off their projects and how far they had gotten. Naturally, this took some time. No one had timed their presentations, but what was supposed to be a 15 minute presentation soon developed into an hour long presentation and discussion. It took nearly four hours before finally it was my turn. I gave what I believed to be a short presentation, but was informed afterwards that I had talked for half an hour.

The presentation went relatively smoothly and Astrid and I were more than able to answer all questions afterwards.

Around 5 p.m., all groups had presented their findings and we were let go with a warning from our supervisor to use the next week well.

Benjamin, Roger, Hanne, Gigi, Alex, Frode and I went over to a Mexican restaurant by the main gates to the university. Sat for a while, feeling relieved that we were one step closer to completion.

Frode and I took a taxi back to Linping. I got off by the post office, went in and got myself some boxes for shipping. Relatively big boxes and apparently I can put up to 20 kg in them and ship them home for around 1000rmb each. I walked down Linping rd from the post office and stopped by the dvd-store. They had just gotten the latest season of Boston Legal in stock, so naturally I had to get that. Went back to the apartment and watched a couple of episodes.

Didn’t do anymore work today. Time passed easily enough anyway. I went to bed around 11 p.m.
