So we did the proper paperwork and submitted it, and holy Jesus, we just found out last week that the council who decides ACCEPTED OUR PROPOSAL! I AM GOING TO BE SPEAKING IN FRONT OF TONS OF PEOPLE AT THE FREAKING STATE CONFERENCE. NOBODY PANIC!!
I literally already starting having nightmares about it this past weekend…though I sorta like the idea that came out of the nightmare: instead of presenting on our topic I convinced another local director to take the old Will Ferrel/Cher O’Terri cheerleader skits from SNL and convert them so they were about library stuff. It was actually funny, though I woke up sweating like a whore in church.
So, not only am I now preparing for a talk to be given to the parents at the local preschool concerning literacy, I’m now working on our poster session, and on my session talk. Deep breathing, doing yoga, praying for patience and inner peace, and trying to figure out what the hell I’m going to say.
