For years I have wanted to go to the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing. I've been a Syster for over 10 years. However, its during the school year and it's expensive.
I've applied for the high school scholarship three times and finally got to go last year. Man was it worth the time. I came back enegized and ready to change the world. In fact I immediately decided I was going for the whole experience this year, and paying for it myself.
I still don't know if I get to go to the high school day yet, but I have it on my interary. I'm scheduled to leave on Tuesday night and come back on Saturday.
Even set to take my diabetes alert dog -- have blogged about that on the diabetes blog.
