I am tired. The last few days were pretty mentally and emotionally exhausting that also included a very long drive home. While I need time to process everything regarding the conference, I do know a few things already. First, I feel confident that I gave the presentation well and that I was thoroughly prepared. Second, I did receive some useful and not-as-useful feedback, though all coming from good intentions. That said, I am left wondering if it was worth it in terms of the time, stress and money. I hoped to feel super accomplished and motivated and that did not happen. I know that I did learn from the experience, though.
On that note, I know a lot of people wanted to see the presentation. I recorded me practicing it from my hotel room. That means that this does not adequately show what it was like to see the real presentation but I do share the ideas and as much of the visuals as could fit on the screen.
