But it must be a law or something that says you must have computer woes before a session. I got to the hotel nice and early so I could give my PowerPoint presentation one final look. Of course, you can’t have a PowerPoint presentation with errors…especially at a journalism conference!
So, with time to spare, I find a quiet corner, open my laptop and prepare to give it one more look.
But the computer had other ideas.
It decided to update. And it took 20 minutes.
As I watched the spinning wheel of death on my computer, I became more and more desperate, even making a secondary plan that didn’t include my PowerPoint. Frantically texted my best friend to let her know how distraught I was.
But, lo and behold, my computer gracefully updated. The presentation went as scheduled.
Thanks to my wonderful audience, it was a great session.
