Last night I put the finishing touches on my presentation for the Fat Studies Conference! I scanned a bunch of photos and this was one of my favourites – I got very sunburnt on year 12 camp and one of my friends put a spider in my lap when she came across the photo in my senior year scrapbook. It’s kind of how I feel right now: totally freaking out! I’m speaking on Saturday and Nick will be taking a video of my presentation so you won’t miss out on my awkward oratory skills. I’m much more comfortable writing – I guess that’s why I’m a blogger! I’ll also be posting my paper here, I’m hoping I don’t get so nervous that I completely stray from it in my presentation.
What I am looking forward to is meeting a bunch of rad people!!! I envision a lot of fun and bonding, I’m so optimistic about our little fat acceptance movement in Australia.
