I am an impatient man.
A while ago I submitted a proposal for a short talk to a big conference. They had set their deadline for approval/denial to the 17th, and they still haven’t announced anything. Fair enough that they’re a bit late, and fair enough they’re even later due to the holidays, but it is like I said: impatience whispers.
There’s worse things to be waiting on, but now that the announcement draws near I can’t help but feel really excited to actually go and give that talk. Fifty bucks says I’m going to be saying the complete opposite by the time I’m there at the conference, but unimportant details are not visible from afar.
Sadly it seems really unlikely I’ll be hearing anything until next year.
