How's this for a lovely first email of the day?
Dear Ms. _______,
Your payment has been received. Welcome to Stockholm!
Happy dance! My first conference! Even happier, wilder, dance! My first conference is also my first international conference is also my first time presenting a piece of research, is also my first time travelling alone since I came to England. What it is not is my first visit to Stockholm, but more on that later. Oh happy days.
(Please, someone remind me that the conference is in 2 weeks, and I have yet to do the poster, as well as complete my questionnaire design. Eep. But remind me later, not now.)
just happy dance!
