everything hits at once

today i received word that the abstract i submitted for the conference in leipzig in the fall was accepted. which means, i guess, that i will be flying to leipzig to present my paper. which means, i guess, that i will be writing the paper over the summer. wow.

i've never been to germany!

this is pretty huge, actually. the list of other presenters is intimidating. and they're publishing an edited volume afterwards with selected papers from the conference. so there is the possibility of a publication, too.

i'll write my paper in my new apartment.
hee hee.
