I am admittedly non political by nature. It’s very different for me here at the mid-year assembly and I sometimes feel an almost uninvited vibe being here. Maybe it’s not uninvited but almost disingenuous vibe. That feeling of people meeting people to say they know them but no uniform familiarity. I have to say I came here on a whim and not as a planned event to where I would meet with certain people or advance specific agendas. I am excited that I have seen some people that I knew from years ago.
I’ve seen some of the very active and vocal people in the profession and learned from the sessions despite my critiques. I think we all have our roles and I’m still wondering where mine will be in the coming years. Totally worth trying new things though.
I feel like I’m trying to grow but I’m still at the kids table. I look forward to my meetings over the next few days and will totally share with you some pictures of our trip in DC. It’s a great time to be out and about and I know Francisco and Elizabeth are getting plenty of pictures while here :).
