I’m reading a lot in anticipation of the meeting in New Orleans.  I have to prepare.  I found some advice written by someone who knows what it is like being an aspiring scholar in an area.  It is like, OMG, someone wrote this advice just for me.  Someone gets me.  I heart whoever wrote this.

I have to be careful with some of the advice, because it may conflict a little with my goal of being a top scholar.
