waiting for my friend to finish finals because she’s driving tonight, therefore we’re forced to stay lol. so excited for some good quality time with my bebes !! we haven’t hung out together since my birthday in september, ugh. can’t wait to exchange presents and eat and just catch up on everything.
i have been so sleep deprived these past two weeks preparing presentations, i’m about to knock out any minute. so today i had a thirty minute group presentation for management class where we review a two and a half hour movie, and i’m so proud of myself given the circumstances we were in. one of our group members didn’t do shit and didn’t even show up at all today, so three hours before class, we were making the introduction and conclusion slides he was suppose to do. no one was willing at first to take an additional part, so i sucked it up and just took the introduction part, which i was beyond nervous for. my professor has been constantly reminding us that the strongest speaker should go first, and i’m not one for public speaking to begin with. truthfully, i knew i was the only one in our group who knew how to fake enthusiasm, so i rather it be me than anyone else. i’m kinda annoyed with some of my group members because when we were practicing, i kept telling them to “fake it til they make it” (very corny, i know, but that’s what i was doing) with their confidence and enthusiasm AND HALF OF THEM WERE SO MONOTONED DURING THE ACTUAL PRESENTATION.
anyways, when we’re done with our presentation, our professor evaluates us in front of the entire classroom. this can be really embarrassing since we’ve seen him review others and he’s such a tough grader. my professor gave me such an outstanding review, omg. like all this hard work and bitching at everyone paid off. he starts off with, “boy, you were all over the place (because i had to go twice). you’re like the quarterback, the star player of the team.” I WANTED TO CRY OF HAPPINESS RIGHT THEN AND THERE. STAR PLAYER GUYS. then he goes on about excellent choice of clips, accurate information, blah blah blah. he ends my review by bringing up a part of the presentation where i described one of the main characters as effective because “he doesn’t take any bullshit and is waiting for a direct answer”. my professor was like, “i’m shocked in a good way because you’re usually so quiet, but you have a bit of an edge.” LOL. everyone is so shocked the first time they ever hear me curse. but whatever, i got no negative feedback from him whatsoever. i have to go reward myself now with a present, hehe.
i’m just so happy because i have been stressing out over my entrepreneur management class’ final presentation (which counts for 30% of our grade) and my professor told me that i did so well. when i handed in my slides at the end of class she goes, “i know you were nervous about going up but your presentation was so great” and i literally replied with “oh my god thank you so much!!” that freakin’ comment made my day and put me in such a good mood despite the fact i didn’t sleep at all last night finishing up my powerpoint.
