I woke up before my alarm today, but stayed in a complete groggy state for way too long.
I tried focusing on work for most of the morning. I know if I think about presenting too much I will make myself feel like crap. I think I actually worked faster by trying to avoid thinking about it.
Spent lunch playing vball. Was a pretty good distraction and adrenaline inducer. We had some really good volleys today, but then I started getting worn out by the 3rd game.
There wasn't much time between lunch and class. This is when I started feeling the pressure kick in. I took some coworker's advice and did some out-loud practice runs to really get a feel for what I'm going to say. This helped some.
Class started, and I had to wait through another group's presentation. They were bombarded with questions and their presentation took about a half-hour. I started pacing around the room a bit. Eventually it was my turn. I think I did pretty good, had a few awkward pauses, and my vocal chords started drying up near the end. Not too bad; done in about 8-10 minutes. Score!
Then I pigged out on chinese food, multiple times throughout the evening. Went home and ate an avocado.
Stopped by Walmart to pick up a USB cable for my phone. Then back home ate some carrots and hummus. Why am I so hungry?
I started getting Kelc hooked on Tiny Tower.
