Greetings from Washington DC! I am at the visiting, waiting for my JetBlue flight back to Boston. I just spent the last three days here at a conference and as I sit here, I am inspired to write a little bit about my thoughts. So, by visual analysis only, I would say that the conference was skewed male. Needless to say, there was a bit of eye candy at the conference. While many of the men were older, distinguished, and married, there was a share of unmarried eligible bachelors – and bonus, most of them were Jewish.
But my radar wasn’t at full capacity. Why, you ask? I wasn’t at my best this week. My ankles were bothering me so I had to wear my sneakers (awkward when everyone else is wearing heels and suits – and that was just the men!). And I didn’t really pack appropriately. I have all of these great clothes and suits, but I didn’t know it was such a formal affair. Lesson learned but that type of info is helpful to know in advance.
Sometimes your game is just off.
I think I felt intimidated and I rarely feel intimidated by anyone or anything.
So what do I do now? Go home, dust myself off, and remind myself that tomorrow is another day!
