A Few Things I Learned This Week
I’m just back from Washington, D.C. and the whirlwind of a huge conference. Although I brought along my DSLR and one Polaroid, I found myself pulling out my iPhone more often because frankly, it was just easier. I realized as I was running from one session to the next, prepping for presentations, and connecting with colleagues and students, that grabbing my iPhone for a quick capture of the moment allowed me some freedom. So as I’m digging out of emails, finishing up a manuscript revision for a resubmission (WOOT!!–a “revise and resubmit”), and getting ready for the academic semester, here are a few moments from my trip and a few things I learned in the past week.
Flying into National Airport is so convenient when you have a conference in D.C. (even if my family is in Baltimore and BWI is closer to them).
The Capital and other D.C. buildings are quite stunning.
We should all be drinking more milkshakes.
Seeing family is a nice way to end a conference. This is my nephew, Hunter.
And as stimulating as a conference can be, and as wonderful as it is to see family, it feels good to go home.
