One of the perks of being a grad student is that I occasionally get to travel on the department's dime. I have been MIA these last few weeks because I have been preparing my poster for the International Congress on Human Genetics in Montreal, Quebec! I will be there for 4 days and then I get to visit Jules from Shoes and Jules next weekend! Yes, my life is occasionally glamorous!
Not only am I excited to attend the conference and go to Canada for the 1st time, I'm also excited to finally get to dress up after weeks of wearing sweats, t-shirts, and jeans (stressed out Shoe Doctor = no energy left to be fashionable). Here are some clothes I will likely be packing for Montreal. I say likely because I am a notorious last-minute packer. I feel I make my best packing decisions when under pressure. Also, there are too many shoes I want to bring. I don't fancy telling some of them that they will not be coming with me on my trip. Yes. My shoes have feelings.
