I's my little ritual. I have these little things that I need to do before i feel completely confident. Going here and talking about that is one of them.

I did good. I am satisfied and so was the client. Good job.

More terrifying that being raped?

What if you gave a big presentation, and then the audience raped you? All of them, angry and full of rape, while you're helpless to resist, or even advance the slide to the next pie-graph showing trending sales of widgets?

This happens in some countries; countries like yours.


@-slav-o: how is this more difficult than twiddling knobs?

it's much more difficult.
when i twiddle knobs, i don't have to say anything. i just stand there and play music.
but as soon as i'm expected to talk in front of more than 5 people, it all goes to shit, basically, i get all anxious etc.
I've just learnt how to live with that.

Another one coming up shortly. I'm concentrating.

_slavo_ 02.27.2013 07:25 AM

everything went great.
I was a star.

EVOLghost 02.27.2013 12:12 PM

Gah, I have a fear of having to take a huge dump during a presentation...

Rob Instigator 02.27.2013 12:31 PM

or a huge fart that would be terrible, like Becky on Roseanne farting in front of the whole school assembly

congrats. keep practicing until it's nothing.

_slavo_ 02.27.2013 05:14 PM

I've been doing that for past 5 years and this has been one of my ways of dealing with the situation - writing here shortly before and shortly after the crucial moment. it helps.
