I mentioned yesterday that I'm working on My First Powerpoint.
Well! Having spent several hours today putting together twelve slides, I conclude the following:
1. Powerpoint is awesome.
2. Powerpoint is a phenomenal time-suck.
Irreconcilable? Perhaps. Nonetheless, true. I feel so accomplished today, having put together my twelve slides! And now [the first half of] my talk feels so organized! With pictures! Pretty!
Pray for me, though, people: pray that I do not become That Person who reads from the slides and doesn't seem to remember why she dropped in the materials she did. Pray hard. I'm in danger.
