How can they afford that in the States?? HOW???? I can't afford to sleep. Those damn profs won't let me be. Maybe I should move to the States then, since sleep occupies a more active place in people's lives (especially when it comes to politics )

Cheer up Dan! I know these things are hideous at the time but believe me, when you hit the "real" world & are asked to do a presentation, trust me, you will be SOOOOOOOOOOOO glad you did a few at uni. Haven't done one for a while, but I got to the stage of almost enjoying them!!

Keep a bit of humour in it & try to have fun - you'll be fine.

Ahh, don't get me wrong, I don't particularly dislike public speaking, it's just that in the context of a class, especially a LITERATURE (I call it "bullshitrature") class, it's just too freaking annoying, even if it provides me with valuable experience. I mean, how much can one bullshit and find things where there is NOTHING??? I don't know, but I suck at it, and reasonably so! I can't, for the life of me, understand how someone can talk for 3 consecutive hours about 50 pages of a novel (does not include retelling the story). I don't know. I have no problems with a polisci or philosophy presentation - done them, and aced them. It's not the crowd that bothers me so much as the material I am presenting on. Literature makes me uncomfortable, philosophy/polisci doesn't. OK OK, I guess I made the wrong choice of major, but no more of that mistake next year. Anyway, I guess I will have to live with the idea of hearing myself talk bullshit tomorrow... Ooops, that's today..

My mom's words of wisdom on my anxiety over this presentation: "It's not rocket science." Well gee, mom, thanks for telling me something I didn't know... ahem

LOL. You guys/girls are hilarious. Thanks. I feel better about it now.. hopefully the optimism will stay with me till 2:30 pm (that's 10 hours from now!) which is when my presentation is supposed to start (unless the prof starts bullshitting and only halfway through the class realises that I was supposed to do my presentation)..

I remember those good old times where I used to be up all night getting my speech right. I used to be terryfied, as standing out in a crowd isn't my thing and I very easily change colour. No matter how much I used to think that I just presented the most boring stuff, the teachers always seemed well impressed. I used to think, what a lot of boring nonsense and I wouldn't do that for a living anyway. But as years are creeping up on me, I must say that all those moments from school which I used to consider a waste of time have come in very handy even just being able to have a speech for the kids.

Keep in mind that we will all be thinking of you and that should make it a smooth ride for you.
