Blunt version: Presentations are scary.
I understand the idea that sharing knowledge furthers the search and discovery for other people. But I never liked the spotlight. Spotlight = Limelight for me. 30 min. presentation. Madi and I need to cut that in half by using an actual script. I had one bad year of presentations already. I don't need that for next Wednesday.
I stuck in way too much writing into the slide show. We confused our friends with what the goal of our research group was about.
We need to practice a lot tomorrow and finish our edits.
