GOTYA (Graduate of the Year Awards) Presentation Night

March 12th has come and gone...and the days just keep flying past.
Busy, full, exciting days. There is always something to look forward to.

I had been looking forward to March 12th and the GOTYA Presentation Night (hosted by the DIA) since I was informed of my placing about a month ago. A good friend came with me to the awards night as my guest...she also very kindly helped me drive up to Sydney the first time (and this time) and kept me sane for the interview part of the competition process back in February. This trip was a lot more relaxed...and the evening was very enjoyable indeed.

It was a 3 hour event held at the Stylecraft showroom in Darlinghurst, Sydney. The presentation of awards was followed by a lovely night of meeting, mingling, nibbling and drinking...and then a 3.5 hour drive home. It was well worth all of the driving though...an achievement that I couldn't have missed celebrating :)

*Eep!! This is the first time I've included a photo with me in it on my blog (and I'm a little nervous...but I'm not sure why)
