Wireless Presentation

Today I had my 1st major MSc assignment, I was to give a 30 min talk all about Wireless Networking to my class and around 10 professors.

I was working on my presentation for around 2 weeks, so when today came, I was so nervous! 10 mins before it started, I couldn’t stop laughing! For some reason, I kept laughing and I had to leave the room to breathe and compose myself!

So it was time for me to stand up infront of 70 people, I gave a quick intro to what I’ll be talking about, a definition of WN, security, business benefits & future technologies. I didn’t finish too early or too late, so that was perfect!

However, as I was talking I felt myself get nervous! I’ve never given a presentation to this big a group, I could hear my accent changing into really strong American, then changing to an Arabic accent and started saying Broblem instead of Problem, then suddenly changing into a weird mix of American & British.

After my presentation, I felt sick, I was so nervous!!! My teacher came to me and said that I did a great job & my presentation was well researched and he cant wait for my report on the subject. Then all of a sudden he was like “Where on earth are you from? One minute I think your British, the next you seem American!” so yah I had to explain my life story and then he goes “Oh that’s why your messed up then!”

So yah… my Uni Professor who I’ve only met 4 times already thinks I’m messed up!

I have 15 projects due before Nov 16th, I’m busy non-stop and seriously have no time for myself! I haven’t been on MSN alot, I miss my Twirlies, I spend the night time with my mom, but with my laptop surgically attached to me while I do my projects, and there is no sign of me slowing down!

My doctor told me to rest, I’m on really strong medication now to control the pain I’m having until I get a letter from the hospital to see this PCOS specialist who will determine how big the cysts are, if they are “dangerous” or can easily be fixed with medication. Thanx to everyone who commented on my last post, I was freaked out when I found out about it, mainly because my doctor kept saying how I may not be able to have kids and then alarm bells rang in my head.

My mom is travelling back to Paris tomorrow, before flying back to the UK in around 2 weeks time to hunt for more apartments. (I’ve seen a few I love!)

Oohh & I finally went to Nando’s here :dance: I went with a guy in my class, and later on, my mom & brother met up with me, so I introduced them oo we all ate together. The guy in my class was also laughing at how my accent was changing between American and British hhehehehehe I’m a fucking weirdo!
