Presentation day is finally here! It was scary at first but when you start talking all your fear goes away! Everyone's presentation was awesome and was followed by free lunch! I can't believe it is over. I am going to miss everyone so much!! Hopefully, we all will keep in touch. I feel well accomplished and hope to continue researching subliminal messages. I have enjoyed learning about eye, psychology, eye tracking and more. It is axing what I have learned and done in such a short time frame! I could imagine the things I could do here, if I could stay longer


For these two days, we primarily practiced a lot and made final changes! Of course, there had to be technical difficulties last minute with the Mac to PC conversion. The videos we used were acting werid!

Big day today with our practice presentation! Mia and I were extremely nervous. So, we decided to practice all morning non-stop. I personally think it was a smart move on our part. It was not as bad as I thought it would be! It was a lot of fun and extremely helpful. Everyone was nice to us and supportive which was good. Also, the questions were not as hard as we thought they would be! Unfortunately, we have a lot of changes to make to our presentation. It will benefit  us but there is not too much time left to make these "minor" edits! I had my part of the speech mastered, but I guess not anymore. There are a lot of changes and not much time. We have to make and be able to present all the changes tomorrow, at another practice presentation at 1:00. Although, this time we won't be as nervous. Surprisingly, it did take a whole 2 hours for them to critique us. After that, we just worked on making the changes.


We are extremely nervous for tomorrow. We heard that the MVRL Lab's practice presentation is a tough one to get by. They have allotted a whole two hours for us! Just hearing all those horrible things about the practice talk. We decided to make edits to our powerpoint to make it look cleaner. Additionally, we practiced multiple times throughout the day, to make sure we are ready.


Practice makes perfect! That is exactly what we did today. We finished our powerpoint and practiced a lot of times together. We are around 18 minutes which means we are in good shape. Also, we played badminton at the BBQ, it was a lot of fun! It was sadly, our last BBQ together. I can't believe next week is our last week here.

We finished our presentation speech and made the graphs for our powerpoint. Afterwards, we had Ciecly read our powerpoint since she was an intern two years ago. She had a lot of helpful edits to make to our presentation speech. Those edits took basically the whole afternoon.

Presentations are close! I feel the pressure and time constraint building up. Today, Mia and I worked on our presentation speech. We are almost done, we need to do some analyzing of our data. That way we can finish up our presentation. So, we are almost done. Tomorrow, we plan to work on our powerpoint. We should be all set by Friday. How exciting??? And, then it is all practice.
