I'm really ready to get home. Today's sessions were much better than yesterday, but I still have made no friends and solitude gets tiring. At least in Baltimore I'm too busy to notice when this happens. Here, I'm far too idle.

That's definitely a positive of this conference; it's made me excited to prepare for the year. I already have the first month of school written in my head.

Flight leaves tomorrow at 4:02 pm. The shuttle to the airport leaves at 1:30pm tomorrow. It's a two-hour drive. It will be an interesting race to see if I make it. I could pay $50 and take an earlier shuttle, which they say my school will pay back, to which I replied, You do not know my school.
