I just received an email from my advisor/professor. She got a call today from someone trying to organize a session on English linguistics at the MLA conference in San Antonio next year. And so she sent me email to see if I wanted to work on something and present it. Of course I said yes. It’s presenting, which looks great on a CV and it’s local so I won’t have to dish out a lot of money to get there. Fantastic! Now I just have to figure out what I want to do–the abstract is due soon. But she’s going to help me think of something.
I’m very happy!
