like i mentioned last post, i spent the end of last week at a leadership conference in atlanta with PwC. the thing about these big 4 accounting firms is that they really want to get the best students to come work for them upon graduation so they spare no expense for their events (remember my dinner back in january?).
we stayed at the intercontinental buckhead, a four star (i think) hotel. this is the picture from the postcard i bought.
the rooms were gorgeous and the bed was really fluffy and comfortable. it was a far cry from the hotels we generally stay at during family vacations! : )
also, the view from the 11th floor room was great, too! on the right, you can see some of the construction that they were doing all over the area we were in.
at night, the building in the middle had funny green lights on it. i really liked sitting in the window box and just looking out at everything. (sorry the photo is so blurry)
besides the conference activities, they took us to the georgia aquarium. it was lots of fun! i even got to touch a ray, a shark and an anemone. plus they had jelly beans with dinner ! this creature really scared me… for some reason it reminded me of aragog from harry potter, even though this was nowhere near as big (and it’s a crab, not a spider).
for some reason, i love to see jellyfish in aquariums. they look so calm and serene. granted, when i see them dead out on the beach or floating around in the water, i have less affinity for them… the part where they could sting me, you know?
you may notice the lack of pictures from any of the actual conference activities, haha. i was too busy to take pictures of that. it was fun and i’m glad i went, but i don’t think i learned as much as i thought i would. i was certainly tired afterwards, though! i slept for most of the next day after i got home! : )
