G’day SIT Members,

I hope you are all doing well for the first quarter of the year. Can you believe we are already in March?! To me, this seems ridiculous, I remember it being the first week of January and in the blink of an eye it’s now March. For all those not counting that’s just a little over 300 days left in this year. I hope you have made big movements on your goals for the year, and are making headway through your academic, professional and personal lives.

My thoughts for this month’s newsletter come from my very recent attendance at a conference. Conference travel is always fun and exciting for an assortment of reasons. However, this conference was completely different from the research field I am used to, but it is where the direction of my project is heading, and so attendance was a must.

I remember the first day at this conference because I was nervous about attending, but I knew I just had to throw myself into the deep end and get involved. I attended this conference alone, with no one from my lab or from my university attending. As this was a new field, I also didn’t know many of the big players, so I convinced myself to just push through my nervous barrier and jump in. To some who know me, this seems unexpected coming from me, and for most of the time that thought would be right, but just for this time I had begun the conference as a real “Nervous Nelly.”

So, I grabbed my dinner, sat down at a table, and began the initially ever-daunting task of starting up a conversation and making friends. Turns out it’s really not that hard and it’s not as daunting as my “Nervous Nelly” mentality made it out to be. Sure, there were conversations that didn’t spark the best of interests or end in exciting collaborations, but it was necessary to meet those people that made the conference knowledgeable, exciting and prosperous. So to all those in my seat, for whatever opportunity you are facing, try to remember: “you’ll never know until you try,” and “until you try you’ll never succeed.”

Best wishes and Happy Mad March (March is a super busy time of festivities in Adelaide, Australia typically named MAD MARCH, so enjoy whatever festivities you attend.)

P.S. The submission site for RADRES 2018 is now open so get your abstracts together and submitted for this year’s conference and travel awards. See you all in Chicago.
