A few rows to take the edge off

October 8, 2013

I am currently waiting to do a presentation for class and of course my stomach has decided to do its best impression of an acrobat trying out for the circus. I am not the world’s biggest fan of giving presentations. I always feel like I am going to mess up and make a fool of myself. I have to remind myself to talk louder, to slow down and to not swear. My biggest problem is the moment before I get up and present. There is that brief moment where I have to force myself not to bolt for the door, forsaking grades and a chance at not being seen as more awkward than normal.

It is time like this that I wish I had my knitting with me. I feel like a few rows to take the edge off would help, but of course I left my knitting at home sitting on my desk waiting for me to pick up and begin my way along again. It does me no damn good here, unless I could manage to knit a few rows with my mind…nope not as effective. I may or may not have toyed with the idea of taking some pens and finding string, but figured tackling the kid near me for his lanyard might border on too far.

The truth is I am sure I will be fine, I am sure that I will be able to present fine and make it through the whole thing with no big issue. I am actually the middle presenter and as such I will more than likely be ignored or easily forgotten and frankly right now that sounds divine.

So I write to you all letting you know that if news reports surface of a student who went running off into the wild, and it was because of a presentation, that you might be able to say…hey I know that one.


Until next time.
