I’m writing this post a little early this weekend, because as we speak I’m on my way up to Boston to visit my sister. For those of you that don’t remember, she lived with me last spring, so I’m definitely dealing with Jessica withdrawal. I tried to kidnap her when we were home for Yom Kippur but evidently that didn’t work out. The good news is that it gives me an excuse to go to Boston a few times over the next 8 months. This weekend’s trip is with my parents, but I’m sure I’ll go back in the winter with Matt (even though last time I was in Boston in January, I swore I’d never do that again). Maybe on the next trip I can meet some of you!
This week was another busy one. One of the highlights was speaking to a college class on entrepreneurism. Truthfully, I am not a comfortable public speaker. Even when I know it will be fine, I get insanely nervous before any kind of presentation. My stomach starts doing flip flops, my heart beats a million times a minute and I instantly start sweating (flattering, I know). However, when I was asked to speak to the class a few months ago, I thought, “Fifteen minutes? I can do that. And you know, it’s probably good to push myself out of my comfort zone every now and then.” Meanwhile, the other speaker wasn’t able to show up, so I had the floor for an hour. Luckily the students were very enthusiastic and had a ton of questions so it actually went by really fast. Dare I say I even enjoyed it?
