csd6: aka me

Categories: conference notes, General, hewd 2004

I think it went well, but I don’t know. I just have such a massive sense of relief that it’s hard to experience anything else. only lost my train of thought a couple of times, and recovered quickly. S5 worked great, too. I didn’t cover everything that I said in my practice versions, but I was going almost entirely w/out my notes.

now I want a nap: do I have enough time before dinner?

    Yay! Congratulations! I’ve always found that practicing was most useful to make sure I knew the subject matter cold so I could wing it if need be. Sounds like you found the same thing. :-)

    yeah, that’s what I’d heard, that and I used to do Academic Decathlon back in high school, and then we had to memorize our speeches.

    of course, it helped that it was a presentation on a project that I loved doing and that I lived and breathed for 4 months.

    (y’know, I should find my AD coach’s email & let her know that I’m still using what I got out of that experience, even 12-15 years later.)
