Nervous Nelly

I woke up this morning at 5:15 already feeling frazzled.

This is the first image that came up when I searched “frazzled female” And I feel that it accurately depicts my inner self at the moment.

It’s one of those days that I have a lot going on and I’m frantic that meetings will overlap and I’ll be late to something. I hate being late.

I’m a graduate assistant in the Office of Housing and Residence Life and I have volunteered to co-instruct a leadership-type class for RAs. My first class is today and I am so nervous. I did something very similar for two years while I was in undergrad, but I had such a love and passion for Longwood, so it was easier. It’s different this time, and I don’t know what to expect (uncertainty – another issue that makes me on edge). It doesn’t help that talking in front of people freaks me out. I’m sweating just thinking about it.

There’s a little Mary Katherine Gallagher action going on

I’ve been told that my nerves don’t show when I’m speaking to a group – but it doesn’t matter because all I know is that AHHHHHH is going on inside πŸ˜‰

To keep my nerves at bay – let’s talk about Glee πŸ˜€ I loved last night’s episode for many, many reasons:

  1. Michael’s PTY – enough said. Also, Artie is one of my faves.
  2. Puck being in love with Lauren is awesome. That girl is hilarious.
  3. I love everything about Blane. I was certain the person he wanted to confess his love for was in fact, me . Cory reassured me that it’s a fictional show and I needed to stop drooling. πŸ˜‰
  4. It was a bitch move by Santana, but cheating is a no-go in my book. Finn & Quinn suck.

Let me know what you liked about it!

There was no workout for me this morning. I didn’t get my lunch together or pack my backpack or pick out today’s outfit before I went to bed so I knew this morning would take a little longer than usual – and I want to be early for work. My class is at 9 AM. Yikes!

I had PB&J oats for breakfast. Who was I kidding? I can’t stay away πŸ˜‰

Oh Lordy, I’ve still got some things to do before I leave for work. Have a wonderful Wednesday morning!

Question for the morning – Do YOU get nervous talking in front of an audience?

    a) i was also a BIG FAN of glee last night. Rachel telling off Santana in the opening was EPIC. It was so well done. Seriously. And, seriously – I’m obsessed with Brittany. And I am a fan of Brittany and Artie. And – could the Curt, Mercedes and Rachel BE any cuter together? I LOVED this episode, so much.

    b) and I would gladly give you Blane if I can have Puck. Ok? Glad that’s settled.

    c) I used to be an RA! And I seriously seriously considered going back to school to work in Res Life/Student Life/Administration. (I have a post drafted titled “Everything I learned about life, I learned from being an RA” ha.)

    d) expect an email from me soon, doll face! I JUST read yours πŸ™‚ I adore you!

  2. I watched Glee last night just to hear the Michael song! It ended up being a pretty good episode though, I hadn’t watched in awhile! I get nervous…I had to read a portion of a play aloud today in class and I was afraid that I wasn’t pronouncing the old English correctly, which made me more nervous!
