Okay so all my great plans for being ready for my volunteer coordinating duties at EdTech Have been shot! I had folks bailing on me left and right today after I went to bed last night with pretty much every slot filled. Now I am not sure who will show up, and who won’t. I just have to trust that my Lord will see me though this. I am scheduled myself to give a presentation on Friday at this conference. So I had all my stuff to pack in 2 big boxes, and needed to make sure my school laptop was good to go. Remember it gave us some trouble at the faculty meeting last week? HORRORS! It would not boot up. Stephanie took it over to the d.o., and they reimaged it. Seems like that is the solution to ALL problems. I was asked if that was okay, and felt like I had no other choice. Well, now my videos will not play through the projector. So I was given a different laptop from school to use. It will play my videos, but it won’t get online that I know if yet. I’m still working on that though. So I’ll just have to carry this old laptop that will cruise the Internet and allow me to blog while I work tomorrow during the conference. We’ll see. I also brought a printer to print out schedules and such for the volunteers. We’ll see how that goes too. I’ll have to load that printer onto this laptop, and I just don’t know if I’ll be able to, or even have time.
Things I have to do:
- Load printer on my laptop
- Check volunteer roll for tomorrow
- Check my presentation (which is Friday, and WAY down on the priority list…)
Here is a list of what I brought with me:
- My home laptop
- a school laptop
- a small laser printer
- ream of paper
- two 2oogb external drives
- my ipod
- a projector
- surge protector
- and some extra clothes for good measure
What I know right now I forgot!
- drop cord/extension cord
I’ll probably realize more things I left by accident as the days progress. But right now I am just focused on getting a driver to load the printer so I can print my heart’s desire tomorrow. I’ll post tomorrow sometime about the events and activities.
Oh one more thing. I saw a former colleague tonight at Zaxby’s, where I went to grab a bite before settling here in my hotel room. Lynn Goodwin from Nort Augusta High School was there doing the same thing. Great minds thinnk alike! It was nice to catch up with Lynn while we both waited on our orders, which were to go. Okay. I must go. I must unpack, layout stuff for tomorrow, and get this doggone printer hooked up and functioning!
