For those of you that don't already know, about a year ago now I was awarded with an undergraduate research grant through my university. I have been slaving away over this research for quite some time now, and let me tell you there were some serious ups and downs. Although I still have some things to do, and possibly a paper to write (dreading that one), yesterday I was able to finish one of my posters! I HAVE RESULTS! I will be presenting at the Rocky Mountain Association Conference in Denver this weekend.

I can't wait for this little road trip with one of my favorite mentors and her research assistant. Today I am thankful that part of my research grant funds this entire trip. That it is supposed to be a high of 70 Saturday there (while there is snow on the ground here). That I will have the opportunity to get to know these two a little better. That I will be able to further my professional career in the field of psychology (I will have FIVE presentations to add to my CV this year, while a year ago I had ONE). Most of all, I am thankful that I will get a little break for a few days. Let the countdown begin.
