Uhm, Hi I’m American

Today I gave my first presentation for class. Needless to say I was the most nervous I’ve ever been. The idea of people thinking I’m a dumb American girl keeps coming to mind. On top of that my presentation was over Indigenous themes seen in film and TV. Let me break this down for you a bit.

1. I didn’t even know Indigenous vs non Indigenous people was still an issue here
2. We never discuss Australian indigenous topics in America
3. I initially thought the presentation was a group presentation not solo.

After realizing I was going to be on my own for this presentation I started to have a massive panic attack. Back in the states presentations are not that difficult for me. While I do get nervous it was nothing like how I was today. Presentations in the states is something I do a lot because of my major. We have to present our ideas and what we think with different campaigns. This was different. I don’t know much about aborigines nor do I know much about Australian film and TV so combining the two caused me to freak out.

I honestly think I made it way more difficult than it was, but either way I finally completed it. I really wanted to start out my presentation by saying “Hi I’m American… please be nice to me” Instead I went along with what I had planned. I think everything turned out pretty good. I saw the nods from my tutor as he seemed pleased by what I was presenting. It was the biggest weight lifted off my shoulders when I finished. Now I can listen to everyone else present as I relax. Thank goodness.

Just an update about events, tomorrow I’m going to go wine tasting in Hunter Valley and pet koalas and kangaroos! Obviously I will be posting pictures of that! Until then I’m jealous of all of you who are able to watch March Madness. Watch for me!

Hunter Valley

Where I’m going tomorrow!

  4. I’m a 21 year old freshman in my collage degree. First of all,
    I want to ask what the average score is for eighth graders that take the SSAT.
    I took it last year in 8th grade, and I got a 2010, which was the best score in my academy prep class (yeah,
    I took it at an academy). Is that a good start? Now i can start my Study, how it do?
