May post every day / nervous about presentation / parents in town

I maybe should be asleep but I want to get something in here because I want to make May a post-every-day month. happiness or groans at this idea? Also I want to do this: 750 words but not every day, maybe every third day or maybe just randomly when I've got time.

I'm also procrastinating going to bed because I'm so nervous about tomorrow, I have to present a poster at a "very competitive" event. I didn't think it would be such a big deal when I decided to do it (it seemed more fun than a paper), but there are prizes and professionals speaking and aghhhhh SO NERVOUS. I've been warned (by my professor) that my poster will be picked apart, but my prof seemed to think it was pretty good so hopefully I'm not about to endure serious embarrassment. still, *jitters!* at least tomorrow afternoon it will be DONE (and then I have an exam immediately following of course).

My parents are in town (they picked the worst possible week) and they are staying in a hotel but they are doing stuff to the house and they are here every day, early until late. That adds a LOT to my stress level because I can't run around naked and I can't avoid interaction. They have been fairly civil which is nice I guess. Oh, and they threw out the big mattress because apparently it wasn't up to par, so now I only have one twin guest bed! but I do have a 4-foot cushion that is good enough to sleep on so hopefully Anika can still stay here and kidlet can sleep on the cushion? Also surprise the downstairs toilet does work, it just leaks a bit.

aghhhh I suppose I should try to sleep!

If you need to escape for a few hours(or a day), you are welcome to come hide at my place. Bonus: I have art supplies!

I might be able to help. I have a king sized mattress that I'm about to replace -- probably next weekish. When is Anika coming? Would next weekend be early enough for you? And do you have any interest in such a big mattress?

I've found that family stress is a very different type of stress - I hope you find peace while they're there.

In support of daily posts.

I've never been able to do presentations, I'm way too anxious. Hope everything went/is going/will go awesome!

We can ever share the twin if absolutely necessary, so don't worry. We can cuddly-sleep. I'm just happy I can pee without climbing stairs. ^.^

I love that you've been posting so much lately, I'd love more!

Also, I hope the criticisms tomorrow help you develop your poster communication, only other people who don't know your topic can do that so it can be a valuable resource. I was told once that half of science is communicating findings.
