Older and wiser?

Thanks for all the birthday wishes earlier in the week! My departmental student seminar--the one where all the Masters students give a talk summarizing their work to all the other students and professors in the department--was scheduled for the afternoon of my birthday, so needless to say, I didn't get out of bed in a celebratory mood. Thankfully, the talk went exceptionally well (one of the reviewers said I gave the clearest talk in the history of the seminars) and I handled most of the questions with enough confidence to walk out of the room feeling pretty relieved. Thanks for all the prayers and well-wishes from everyone before the talk.

Afterwards, Tiff gave me two awesome gifts: I got a t-shirt she made with Brick (Steve Carrell) from Anchorman saying "Loud noises!!!", and a set of personalized stationery graced by a hand-drawn picture of Bunchkin on every page. To make the day even sweeter, I got a steak dinner with escargot and calamari. I'm ashamed to admit that Tiff totally out ate me, but in my defense I was wearing some exceptionally tight pants. Had I been wearing my sweatpants, the outcome would have undoubtedly been in my favour. Maybe I'll take that lesson to heart next year, when I'm older and wiser.
