I figured last night it’d be quite safe to go out on the town with the CLAIR people, they’re organising the conference after all, just stick in Shinjuku and get back around midnight. So that’s what I did. But this morning, oh did I feel bad!!!!
I went down to do the first presentation and the room was packed. I was still feeling very, very ill. But just before I started, this guy came up to me and said “We used to go to the same school, and when I was in my first year, you saved me from some bullies. So I just wanted to say thanks”. Wow. How you can you not do a good presentation when you get told something like that.
So as soon as I got the word, bang, it was “think genki – be genki” and I did it!! The crowd were really, really great and totally into things. And I was so glad that I made it!!
But then I realised I had to do it again! Oh no! I did make it to the end, but it wasn’t my best ever presentation!
So after the presentation I checked into my room for another night and just slept for the rest of the day.
