This morning I had a rough time getting out of bed. It was snowing and raining and I could hear the snow turning into hail as I stretched to get up. The sound of those little ice balls on the roof tiles made me cringe and dive back under the warm covers. Wednesdays are my worst days. It’s that time of the week where you start planning your weekends and think about all that fun, but at the same time you still have three days of work ahead of you. Three super exciting days, in my case. Tomorrow I have a few small presentations to give and I am DYING of nerves just thinking about it. These presentations are probably the real reason I didn’t want to get up today. Can’t time just stop running for a few months? Or maybe we could skip tomorrow? How does that sound? Sounds like a solid plan to me! Oh well. When I started my internship I had to create a list of at least three things I wanted to work on in the next four months (study counseling things). One of those things for me is that I want to learn how to control myself when I have to give a presentation. I can’t think of any activity that I hate more than having to be in front of a group and having to take the word. I shut down, stress out, turn red and forget my lines. It’s just terrible! Luckily, I always have the support of my supervisors so nothing can really go wrong, but still… freaking OUT.
When these presentations are over I am going to check out a small fashion show and take an evening walk in the city. I’ll be going on my own, and to be honest, that too scares me. A thing I challenged myself to do, is to do the things I want, when I want. And I wanted to go to that fashion show. And I’ll probably just end up on their doorstep being to much of a wuss to enter all by myself. But hey… at least I’ll try?
Today I am wearing my Gap boyfriend jeans • Gap striped tee • shoes from some of market vendor • Forever 21 statement necklace (it’s new, but I can’t find it on the site anymore…)
