When I was preparing for the presentation, I was already behind on the work. Now that I was done with my my presentation, I was behind on the rehearsing.
Just like I did before, I finished rehearsing on the day before the presentation for the parents (the one for the school was a fail). There was still one problem though; would I be able to present in front of a crowd of parents and not freak out? I would get that answer tomorrow.
Before people started to present, I was pretty confident that I would be able to present without making a stupid mistake. When the person before me was presenting, I was definitely worried. There were so many things that could go wrong! I could stumble on my words, I could forget what to say, and much more.
When it was finally my turn to present, I was sweating like crazy. It was like my heart was going to explode! When I introduced myself and stated my topic (vi
deo games), the parents actually laughed. They laughed! That put me at ease a bit. The rest of the presentation went smoothly, me doing the talking and the parents occasionally laughing. When my turn was finally over, I felt like a hundred weights had been removed from my shoulders. I had done it!
After everybody presented, we all filed out of the room and went to do our own things. In my case, it was eating! Since that day was my graduation day, they had bagels, brownies, cupcakes, etc. in the gym. I ate as much as I could fit in my belly!
Overall, I had many failures and challenges along the way but at the end I succeeded. I felt like it was a great project!
By the way, if you want to see my presentation, go to my 6th blog. I hope you enjoy it (if you watch it)!
