thesis shmesis indeed

I'm not a particularly "nervous" person. I don't mind presenting in front of people, I don't get all worked up over things I can't control and I don't usually lose perspective.

But I was nervous this morning. Like "I think I'm gonna be sick" kind of nervous. Not only did I have butterflies, I had break-dancing gymnast butterflies.

****I talked too fast

****I probably said "um" and "like" more times than I should have

****I kept flipping my hair

****and I had a runny nose.

But I passed! They actually said very nice things and were impressed with my "reflective and insightful" comments that demonstrated my growth.

My legs are still shaking like they are made of jello and I found myself bursting into tears as soon as it was over, but it's over. And I passed.
