I’ve been getting ready for the conference in April, and getting…well, plain scared kind of covers it. I mean, it’s sure to be fun. But these past five, almost six years, I’ve been so immersed in my own, personal life that my professional front has sort of lost itself. It’s like I’m starting all over in the “working world” and I have to get back into practice. I also have to write up a really short three sentence “pitch,” just in case someone happens to ask me what I’m working on. I don’t want to sit there and go, “Um…der….uh…” for a half hour ;). Or for two seconds, until the person I was talking to decides I’m an idiot and turns around and talks to someone else. Maybe they’ll talk to my friend Janelle, who will be there too! And they will pick her up, offer her a trillion dollar book deal…maybe I should use my idiocy as a tactic.
I’ve been doing work, but have little to show for it. Hopefully soon, though, things will all fall into place. I just know if I rush this story, the emotion will not come through right, and that is just the most important thing about this story.
Hockey tonight, Go Sharks! Cheryl, you’d better bring my signed Mink card!
