Okay, now, I'm really leaving for Taiwan. I've activated my e-mail Vacation Message, and now I'm just copying the important files to my laptop. I still have much work to do on my talks, which also means that I am going to have to find a printer somewhere. For me, at least, the amount of anxiety surrounding a talk is generally proportional to the lack of information about my audience, and I really don't know what this workshop is going to be like. Anyway, I need to compartmentalize the talk part of things and keep focused on having fun with the rest of my trip.
I still have some packing to do, and, unlike my talk, that cannot wait until I am on the plane!
