So I guess I should post the news. Kathryn and I have been invited to the ASAN 5-year Anniversary Celebration, at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., to receive the 1st Annual Award for Exceptional Service. We're being recognized for our work creating Autistics Speaking Day.
Um. Apparently, this is a big deal. I wasn't sure whether I'd be able to go, but my parents and I are going to drive nine hours to attend. So I'll be there.
I'm kinda embarrassed. I don't do all the work I've done for awards, although it is nice for both of us to be recognized for what we've done.
But I get to meet quite a lot of the people I've been emailing and chatting with online for the past... two years, at least? I'm really excited for that.
So if you're going to the celebration, I hope to see you there!!
