So last week was the week of our TED Talk presentations for the Passion Project.
We started off a little rough, but as the days went on there were some really awesome presentations.
Here are the blogs of some of the students whose presentations I was really impressed by:
The first two in this list (Megan and Mike) really made an impression on me, because they were really passionate about their project and had obviously prepared. Mike had a really entrepreneurial air about him, very professional, and Megan just loved what she was talking about.
Every presentation had its own flow to it that was unique and different.
'Quiet Dreamer', my friend Kathleen, had a very steady and soft spoken voice, and she had these surprising moments of sarcasm that one doesn't often hear because she's so quiet.
My presentation was on Wednesday, and it was the grand finale to a series of bad decisions I had made the days leading up to it.
I hadn't prepared enough - heck, I didn't even have a complete slideshow until the period before I was presenting! And the more that I thought I wasn't prepared, the more I stressed myself out, and so on and so forth. I have an entire rant that I wrote after I got home on Wednesday that I just had to get off my chest.
Now all that's left is to practice practice practice and freak out about finals.
I don't know how I'll get through the next four days.
