Making it count

Our last day in Park City was extremely eventful. David and I started the day walking around Main Street trying to get our required 30 business cards. Luckily we’re talkative and approachable people, so we easily reached out goal. We were lucky enough to get free tickets to a panel event titled “Reckoning with Torture” at which America Ferrera and Robert Redford himself were speakers. We were so excited to see both of them. We were literally star-struck, but not too much, because I managed to get my picture taken with America!

We happened to meet and get a business card from a documentary film producer, Alison Ellwood, on the street, and she gave us free tickets to her documentary called Magic Trip. We didn’t love it because it was a bit too long, but the editing was really great and the story was interesting enough.

Because it was David’s birthday, we all went out to dinner together, which was really fun. Earlier in the day, David and I talked with some ladies that had awards passes for the festival, and they were nice enough to give us four tickets to the awards party. So last night, David, Will, Blair and I got into the party with Joey, Kate and Parker, and we ended the Sundance trip right.

We’re currently in the Las Vegas airport, waiting to catch a flight back to Raleigh. It’s been quite a trip. We all had an AMAZING time in Utah, but I think we’re all ready to get back to Elon.
