Hey everyone! So guess what! It's been two years, and I have now successfully uploaded 1 gig of space! Unfortunately, that is my limit. I have come up with a short term alternative solution (it's confusing and complicated, I'll spare you the details), but I may end up putting ads on this blog so I can pay for the extra storage space. Also may not, gonna talk with a marketing friend of mine tonight to figure out some other possibilities. Anyways, without further ado:
MY TURKEY BREAK
Chapter 1: TED TALK
So a little backstory, the week before my turkey break my friend got accepted to give a TED talk at Georgia Tech. (TED stands for Technology Entertainment Design, and features some of the brightest and best minds giving 5-20 minute presentations on their topic of expertise. Or as the website puts it, they are "Riveting talks by Remarkable People").
So it was a pretty big deal that he got accepted to give a TED talk, and I spent almost the whole week before hand either praying or helping him prepare for it. THEN on Friday, he mentioned that he could bring a friend (and this thing was completely sold out by the first day),
|The dinner where I got my (viewing) TED invite|
which is how I ended up going to the Georgia Tech TED Conference:
|Hammad (guy in the wheelchair) and Travis Horsley (another TED speaker that day)|
|Introducing the event|
Hammad's TED Talk:
(Also, this is just my video, but TED will release the official video in a few weeks and hopefully the audio (and visual) will be much better) (And I'll replace this link with that one iA)
And some pictures while he was talking
|Speaker 2: Luma Mufleh|
|Speaker 3: Todd McDevitt|
And that was all I stayed for. I had originally made plans to hang out with this guy!
Chapter 2: Chillin with Taylor
Friday we were just hanging out (partially thanks to me getting a migraine that night...)
|Words against Humanity!|
On Sunday we hiked Kennesaw Mountain!
|Taylor and the cannons|

|Back to the car|
And that was that day, the next day I headed home for the:
Chapter 3: HOME!
|If only I could have driven home in that...|
Time for random animal pictures!
|My cat watching me eat|
|"That is One Glorious Cat" - Aisha|
|Dusty snuggling my mom's hand|
|Nothing like the smell of coffee to put you to bed....|
|Shadow keeping me company while I read|
|My new neck warmer|

|And heading home...|
and then I basically just hung out the next day, then headed home for
Chapter 6: Home
(not exactly sure what the chapters are for)
|Seriously, me being home = animal pictures|
|Not sure how if Dusky knew I was leaving the next day, but I appreciated the company!|
