Not in Washington

Posted by Gerald on January 3, 2008

My trip to the American Historical Association conference in DC ran hard aground upon the reefs of reality.  A sort of domino effect began with the New Orleans trip and associated injury.  This made final exams into a real bear so by the time I got finished I was so wiped out that I didn’t get any of the stuff I needed to get done for the Spring semester over the (no kidding) Twelve Days of my Christmas break.

I wasn’t presenting at the conference, just attending, so all my not going means is that I’ll miss the conference, I won’t get to see my friends there, and I’m out the moderately outrageous registration fee.  Going would have meant starting the semester already behind, creating stress for me, and also inconveniencing my students.

Hence, I remained in NC this week.

Oh, well.
