Why Conferences suck!
Monday, April 04, 2011
its not the conference itself I found the workshops very helpful and I learned a lot. I made some new friends (which is hard for me to do) and contacts within my union. Its the dining events that come with the conferences. This was my second conference and I don't have very much experience with what they provide for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I found it so hard to judge what they gave me portionwise and They didn't always tell you exactly what you were eating. The second days lunch nobody knew what it was but it was good! I ate just about everything they put down following suit of my table companions. Although I ate my fruits and veggies first in hopes that it would make me feel full sooner than later because of the portion distortion and lack of names for what you were actually eating. I do know that the majority of the items served I probably will never eat again let alone make way to rich/fancy for my taste. so I count this weekend as a set back and Know I have to pick my self up (umphhh) and get back on track hopefully this won't be to hard and good news there's not another conference until next year.
