So at this point I’m actually sitting in JFK International Airport waiting for my connecting flight. Shouldn’t be too much longer, but while I was here I figured I’d get caught up on my AU blogging. AU 2008 seemed to absolutely fly by (no pun intended as I am sitting in an airport). I’m sure part of that was greatly due to my schedule of assisting 3 labs, presenting 1 class, and spending what time I could helping AUGI. Nonetheless, Thursday was my big day at AU. As I have mentioned a few times before, I was invited to speak for the first time at AU this year. My class for those just tuning in was Power to the Parcel, a class covering parcel design within AutoCAD Civil 3D.
I have to admit, I have never been much of a morning person, so frankly my biggest fear of presenting at 8:00am Thursday was oversleeping. Despite staying up a little later than I probably should have Wednesday evening rehearsing my class, I did manage to make it to my class on time. While I made it to class on time I was not able to make it through my class without any technical glitches. Despite everything working perfectly during my rehearsals, my last topic (parcel reports) bombed. Parcel reports being my last topic, it was an absolute nightmare that I had to end my class on a low. Thankfully however, everyone seems to have forgiven me for the technical glitch, and have given me positive reviews. With that, hopefully they’ll have me back as a speaker again next year.
