I’ve just cancelled my conference registration for this year’s RWA National. I’ve known for several weeks now that I would have to cancel the trip to Washington, but I guess I was still holding out and hoping for some sort of miracle. Which unfortunately never happened. (Talk about feeling glum.) I so looked forward to the conference, but as none of my workshop proposals have been accepted, I won’t be able to take time off from university. After all, we still have classes in mid-July.
