I've Done This Before

I have to do a training today. I have a partner who is more experienced at it, so hopefully, she will take the lead. But I found out last night, late, when I thought I was only going to be observing.

Ah well, I slept anyway, but my appetite is gone. I'm going to force a breakfast down of cottage cheese and an banana.

I've done this before. And was nervous then too. And I think I stunk.

But again, I do this every time I'm the Dungeon Master at a game of D&D. There's lots riding on me to help the others enjoy the game, and yeah, I feel nervous beforehand, but I'm with friends and we do have fun. And sometimes a game doesn't come off the way I'd wish it to, and sometimes one of my less socially-advanced players might say, "I'm bored!" as opposed to being less offensive, but the reward there is greater than the risk.

Here, at the job, the risk seems a shade greater than the reward.

Ah well.

When am I going to post about NaNoWriMo? My Other Hero posts about it everyday. He's such a powerhouse. There's a graphic I can use and everything, and I haven't done it yet. Lemme see if I can get it real quick...

...okay found it!

I'll go post that in the corner, under my heroic pose.

And I'm a friend of Matt Atherton's, so that's all right then.
