presenting at a conference
Here's where all of you can pat me on the head and say things like "oh, how cute!" and I won't even get mad about it—Profgrrrrl
did the other day in the car on the way to super-duper-sushi.
So I'm a-going to a conference. Presenting, even. It's a grad student conference for the CSU system, so of all the conferences to go to for my first time, I think this is a good one—everyone is in an MA-only program because that's all the CSU system offers.
Downside, it's in LA
. I'm not a fan of LA. I have to get my cruise control fixed before I make the drive.
Upside, the paper is already written and just needs some tweaking before it goes into print, also the spoken version will need some tweaking to ensure I don't trip over stuffy words. It's under control, though. I have Mel
on speed-dial for things like that.
So, any tips would be great, or anecdotes about your first conference experience...that would be fun to hear. :)
