LimmudNY: Don't procrastinate like I usually do.
If you’ve been thinking about coming to LimmudNY 2008, now’s the time! Possible excuses and why these excuses are invalid include the following:
1. I always do everything at the last minute. Why not this? (This is my personal favorite, because until last week, it was my excuse!)
Late registration fees begin to accumulate in two days, on December 21. Waiting will cost you an extra $50.
More importantly, LimmudNY has sold out each of the three years that it’s happened, so waiting might cost you the whole experience.
2. I can’t afford it. (This was my backup excuse if someone found a way around the first one.)
There is still scholarship money available. It would be sad if the generous folks who gave money towards scholarships were left with the impression that their donations were unnecessary or not warmly welcomed. You wouldn’t want to make them feel bad, would you? I thought that there might be no scholarship money available to me, because I work full-time and am more than five years out of college. I was wrong. There was! You, too, can afford LimmudNY whether you’re a student, a recent graduate, un/under-employed, or just a hardworking non-profiteer like me.
3. I live in Brooklyn and don’t want to schlep up to the Upper West Side to take the bus.
There’s a bus directly from Brooklyn this year!
4. I’ll be bored.
This is the worst excuse of them all. It won’t hold water. There’s no way you’ll be bored! Just look at this list of presenters!
5. Look, I don’t know what you’re talking about. What is LimmudNY?
Okay, so I can’t answer all of your questions in one brief blog post. Start here for some basic information about LimmudNY and watch this space for more details.
