I really tried to stretch my brain this year. I went to presenters that I had never gone to before. I went for topics that were a challenge for me instead of taking the easy workshops. I asked questions! This is huge for me. I am basically an introvert..I know..I don’t seem like it, but basically I just want to be a hermit. (INFJ) Next year, I’m adding “socialize more” on my goal list.
I have a few weeks to let this all soak in before I head to Omaha, Nebraska at The EIPA Diagnostic Center for another workshop. These are the people who “do” the EIPA (Educational Interpreter Performance Assessment). I’m really excited to go and work on tweaking my interpreting skills to hopefully improve my EIPA score when I test in early August.
OMG, just typing this all out has me overwhelmed. That’s what happens to me. Breathe!
