Presentation on Monday, how do I prepare?


As the title says I will have a presentation at my university were I will have to speak in front of many students in a lecture hall explaining my current project. I have to do this normally in class every Monday where there are less people and its dreadful and I barely cope.
Normally I just make all the slide and do all the research I need for the presentation and mentally continue to ignore that is going to happen till it happens. This stops me from being anxious all week but I am wondering if I should not do that this time. When I ignore it all week I get super anxious and can't say much when I actually present but I don't know if that would be different if I thought about it more.
Is there a better way to prepare for one of these things, especially cause its a lot more people I will be presenting to this time or is ignoring it mentally the best option.

Do you give good or satisfying presentations to your own standards normally like this when you are giving them weekly in the smaller classrooms? If that has been working for you, I would just do whatever works for you normally then. Or maybe just pretend the lecture hall if just your typical small classroom when you're giving the presentation. Like just focus on a small group of people in the lecture hall while you black out or zone out the rest. Maybe easier said than done.

The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

I would say that I do not give good presentation at all, fist time I froze and someone had to take over and the last I talked about one point out of two and was incapable of doing the rest. An improvement but still poor. I will try to take your advice for tomorrow though.
