Woot woot!! It's a "mini-session" type thing. This conference is HUGE! I'm excited, but also nervous. It's a format called "Ignite." I get 20 slides, 15 seconds a slide, 5 minutes, MAX. No control over the slides...

Woot! Congratulations.

@jrc it's in San Antonio. It's a World Wide conference and they got *loads* of applicants (they even extended their decision deadline by a week). My colleagues are impressed and excited for me.

I have to say, since I got separated from ex, a lot of great things have been happening. For one, I think that now that he's no longer part of the package (even for work) I'm more appealing to people. Also, because I"m not so stressed out all of the time with him I have more energy to devote to my career.
