My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

My High Five Day and Adventure Day 29

Blog prompt: Today National High Five Day. Tell about something you did this month that you feel proud of.

I had to give a presentation to about 60 people at our national conference and I was really worried about it. I always volunteer to do stuff like this and then when it comes time to do it, I’m kicking myself for agreeing to do this. I’m always nervous and worried and wonder why I put myself through this. My presentation was about using technology to reach our organization’s members. I explained about using Skype, wikis, and Flash meeting (which I use to hold my online meetings). When I planned it, I was worried that this would be boring for the audience so I tried to make it interesting. Imagine my surprise when the audience was engaged and asking questions and seemed really interested! When it was over, I was even asked to come to their state meetings and present to individual boards. I felt proud that I followed through with the presentation (even though I wanted to pass out!) and that everyone seemed like they got something out of it.

Travel Notes:

Today was mostly a travel day. We traveled across California on Hwy 20 and I-80 into Nevada. It was really interesting to get back into the snow after the wonderful sunny coast. We reached Reno, NV by this afternoon and decided to spend the afternoon and night here. Tomorrow we will continue our trip east but we haven’t decided if we will go to Wendover, UT or Grand Basin National Park first.

Good for you. High Five) Kudos to you for getting up and doing a presentation in front of people. I don't like getting up and talking in front of a large group.

I can't imagine your presentations being anything but riveting. Now it looks as if you are going to have even more traveling to do :)

What gorgeous mountain pictures. Yep, an 8x10 bound on side coffee table book.
