Today, I have to talk in front of a group of faculty members where I work. I am not a faculty member. I am a lowly peon with nothing more than a BA in English. These are PhDs in medical fields.

I do not like public speaking.

And to make things worse, I woke up this morning with the first gigantic zit I’ve had since I was about 13 years old. Yes, I am blessed with great skin. So glad that my face chose today to remind me how blessed I usually am.

My boss laughed at me when I suggested I might need a shot before going into the (only 15 minutes why am I freaking out) presentation, but I was serious. Mostly.

I am wearing my confidence shoes, though:

Wish me luck – and if I make it through I will tell you a story about my track workout yesterday, and then you can help me decide if the workout was a WIN or a FAIL.

Off to vomit from nerves now!
