Last night I finished a PowerPoint presentation for today. I hate procrastinating. I do. But I do it all the time. Either way, it got done, just totally last minute. Now today I have to do the actual 7-minute presentation and although I know the material, I feel horribly unprepared. I am sure it will be fine but I hate getting in front of a group of students and a professor and speaking a language that is not my native tongue. I love to read in Spanish, listen in Spanish... I just hate speaking it.
And I have to do it all again on Friday. Only it won't be in front of my class. It will be in front of a panel of professors and a bunch of other graduating seniors and whatever guests they decide to bring. And although it's only 4 minutes and I get the assistance of another PowerPoint to guide me, I still feel horribly unprepared and terrified I am going to poop myself in front of everyone. I'm totally not bringing a guest.
As for my final project, I have a 15-page play written but was told it isn't "long enough." Not sure what happened to quality over quantity but whatever. I doubt it's even "quality." I have to add a couple more scenes so that's another 5-6 pages. That brings us to 20. In addition to that, I have to write a 10-page analysis of my process and what I learned and all that jazz. All due on May 7th. I can honestly say I have never been more tired of looking at a computer monitor.
Then on May 10th is my final exam. And I'm done. Forever. I cannot believe it. I really doubt I will ever speak Spanish again after this even though it is my major. I just can't bear it.
MORAL OF THAT STORY: Being a student is not my bag and I'm glad it's over in less than 2 weeks.
