today at dcla, my responsibility was to help host the youth leader orientation meetings. it’s a valuable meeting with lots of important information. but i did 5 meetings back to back from noon to 2:30, and another 5 from 4:30 to 7. there was a one minute break between each of these, so i had to instantly launch back into the meeting as soon as one ended. i got so completely sick of hearing my own voice. and i was constantly thinking, “wait, did i just say that? no, i think i said that to the previous group.” the jokes that got good laughs the first couple times had zero energy by the end. it felt like there was 10% less energy each time. do the math.
but, hey, dcla seems off to a great start!
