If you want to complain, I'm not the complaint department

So I had to do a presentation on Tuesday which I was absolutely dreading. Dreading it so much that I was putting off writing the presentation all summer. I'm not good with speaking tbh and I don't like all the attention being on me. But the more I practised it, the slightly better I felt. I also downed a shot of raspberry vodka before I went to uni to give it, but I think it had worn off by the time I actually did it. So when it finally rolled round to me giving it (I was number 12), it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. My voice was a little shaky but when I sat back down, I felt good that it was over and that I had actually done it, an accomplishment (albeit a minor one.) Now I feel that if I have to do one again, which is likely, I won't get ridiculously anxious beforehand. It feels strangely good to vent this.
The picture is irrelevant but I adore Marilyn.


  1. thank you,I thought so too!! they are from central Finland,my home town Jyväskylä.they looked so sad and spooky it was fascinating.

  2. I'm glad you're happy about it! I hated giving presentations and used to get SO nervous but I guess the adrenaline kicks in and it feels great when you sit down!

  3. I'm the same - I hate talking in front of a group, I get really nervous! Glad to hear that it went well though x

  4. I hate talking to people in groups too. I am obsessed with Marilyn Monroe too!

  5. Well at least it's over now and you feel good about it. I've always wondered what it would be like if i drank a little before a recital that i'm nervous about... except i don't want to need to go to the bathroom in the middle of a set! haha
