Hour 12 – The Mid-Event Survey!

 

Hey, Jennifer from The Relentless Reader, here! I’m here to hang out with you all for one more hour. In my professional opinion, it’s the best hour of the day. Welcome to the halfway point!

If you’re anything like me you’re feeling on top of the world right now. You aren’t too tired and you’re still super excited about this amazing event. The punch-drunk feeling of the later hours hasn’t begun and your family members probably haven’t started whining yet either. Hooray for hour 12!

Congratulations on making it half way. You’re amazing! I think we should listen to a Beatles song once again, don’t you? They’re just the best. (Another professional opinion of mine.)

It’s time for the Mid Event Survey! Post your answers on your blog and come back here to leave your direct link.
