be careful what you wish for~

i was excited to submit an abstract of a poster about the research project i am working on~~

i was even more excited when i was told it was accepted~~

i was stunned when i got this email yeterday…

Dear Tracy A,

what have i gotten myself into??*breaking out in a sweat* this will be the ultimate challenge to my fear of public speaking…the only saving grace is that i think most people will have other things to do at 10am on the first day of the conference~~~maybe i can throw in some of my best high school spanish??

  1. Whoa, making me break out into a sweat!

    But, I agree with Maria…it is really awesome. So this means you’re going to Stockholm, as in Sweden, not Wisconsin. Now, if it were Stockholm, Wisconsin, no one would show up, since only about 10 people live there and they’d all be in the local cafe having coffee at that hour!

    Congratulations!
