Well the day that could have ended in hell actually ended up in heaven (so to speak). Had probably the most important presentation of my life this-morning which was a seminar on my engineering project to the top engineer and director of the largest aerospace company in the southern hemisphere. My god it was nerve racking but some deep breathes and belief in myself led to a really successful meeting and all present seemed quite impressed with my work which honestly feels incredible.

On top of that I managed to get invited to a friends place to watch a big football match on tomorrow night and most of my buddies from school will be there. Normally I would make an excuse to get out of something like this instantly but I think being on a high all afternoon was enough to give me the confidence to say yes. Should be a good experience and a good opportunity to try some techniques I have learned in therapy lately as well.

Hope this high continues and I can feed off it but things are finally starting to loop up!

Thanks, yeah we do stress a lot but in a sense I'm kind of glad I do because I make sure to go to the extra effort to practice and know my topic inside out. If I was confident I probably would not prepare so well.

Great to hear your success rockst4r, 2mins or 20 it doesn't matter because it's that getting up there which is the challenge.
