The semester is basically over.
Yesterday was the closing event of my project management practical course. It was a public event but I think my mother and that guy from Mainpost (the local newspaper) were pretty much the only guests.
There was a short guest presentation followed by our final presentations, then a comedian - who didn't really bring up anything you haven't heard a million times before - and finaly the "Projektiade 2007 Awards". They were small greek goddess like statues our lecturer called "Projektia", the tutelary goddess of the project managers. There was one for best presentation, one for best project execution and one for most innovative product. The last one was kinda the first prize.
I had to do about 2 minutes of our presentation, a little review on how our project went, and operate the computer. So I was just a little nervous. Everthing went fine and we thought we may even win best presentation. Well, we didn't. We won most innovative product instead. o.O
It's not really important but very flattering nontheless. Our project wasn't my idea and I wasn't the driving force or anything. I can't claim that. But I was part of the team and put a lot of time and work into this. So it's really nice to see your work rewarded like that.
As the winning team we got a gift coupon from the "Netzwerk Nordbayern". Every one of us can choose one of their seminars and take part for free. We (my team) decided to go there together since that'll be a lot more fun. *g*
In the end we had some pictures taken. I'd show them to you but as far as I can see they're not online yet.
That being said, there's bad news about the spanish course I wanted to take part: I didn't get in. 25 places were available, 37 people applied. I can go there again on Thursday to ask if someone maybe didn't turn up to pay. In that case I can have their place. But the odds are not really good. :(
So I guess I just have to try again next semester and in the meantime try and learn Spanish on my own.
Meh, I really wanted to do this course. But what can I do? *sighs*
I slept in the hammock for the first time this year last night. Usually it gets quite cold in the morning just before the sun rises and I need at least two blankets wrapped around me tight. But tonight it just wouldn't. It must have had about 20°C all night. A weeks ago it was cooler in the middle of the day. Weather is weird lately. And way too hot for my taste.
When I wanted to go to bed last night first thing I had to do was shoo my cat away from the hammock. She had hade herself comfortable on my blanket leaving no room for me whatsoever. This morning she came back and coiled up on my feet. *squeee*
And don't forget about
