Celebration Time..

As my favorite Freej character Um Khammas would say: “Yalla ya chabab! Barkooli Barkooli!” LOL

After many long hours, employment in the worst school known to mankind (MPS in case any of u guys might miss-guess) and a handful of disappointments, frustration, stress etc. I, El Hazard, have finally FINISHED my project.. And yes I have a big cheesy grin stuck on my face..

In other news, I finally stood up and gave a speech in Speech Comm. (Lol, awina I stood up of my own accord, HA, the teacher realized I hadn’t given any speeches and it was already the third week so he told me to get up there.) I had to speak about something meaningful to me.. a person kept coming to mind but he specifically said he wanted an object. I thought and thought and finally decided that it must be my laptop. Then we had to state reasons why the object is meaningful to us. I thought some more.. “Well, because my grandfather bought it for me.. It signifies my hard work in high school and I chat with meaningful people on it. (I nearly died when I lent it to Maria when her comp was down. She only borrowed it for a day and a night.. not sure I could go on living with out it!) I kept my finger tips pressed together so my hands wouldn’t visibly shake in front of the whole class, I shifted from foot to foot every so often to give the impression that I wasn’t nervous… To tell the truth though my speech was probably the crappiest and was probably filled with more ‘umm’ s than the whole class put together. By the end when the teacher was asking questions I didn’t feel as nervous as when I first stood so maybe that’s a good sign. I definitely feel I might do a bit better the next time I’m called inshallah. (Wishful thinking maybe…)

OOOOOOOOOh I nearly forgot, there is yet another reason for celebration… This post marks my 100th post mark. Yipeeyi Yo Kai Ya......

I really like going to school now (even if I'm all alone) but I still have an undying love for the weekends. I guess in the end my lazy side is just below the surface.

Hehe in one of my presentations I was so nervous I could feel my legs shaking and banging together and that my voice was shaking too, yet no one seemed to notice it. Because I was so into the topic I was presenting that I talked and talked and talked. It also triggered a speech from our instructor (which bored everyone but me) because he was actually interested in the same topic!

I know I heared yipeeyi yo kay yee somewhere before...but I can't remember...

Lol Kath, you really don't look like the type that would be nervous giving a presentation =P

The first time (and only time) I remember hearing yipeeyi yo kai yay was when Bruce Willis said it (of course I left out his unique profanic ending) in the movie Die Hard. Lol I watched it as a kid and loved it. Probably because it was one of the few R-rated movies my mom let me watch XD

well i think my "personality" during and after college is very different than when i was in school. I used to be the shyest girl ever. Now before a presentation if I rarely get nervous but when asked to speak about something suddenly (in front of a lot of people) and I tell people that I'm nervous they couldn't believe it. I mean I dunno... what gives the impression that I don't get nervous?

El Hazard said...

I don't know.. u sorta give off waves of the impression that u aren't nervous =D

Well I guess its a good thing

I think everyone gets nervous but the key is not showing it. =x
