    Presentations Scare Me.

    I am a senior and I am scared to death by the thought of presentations, just the mention of me having to present something in front of a class makes me shutdown. This has led to a lot of F's because I do not want to embarrass myself while presenting something especially when it...

    I Hate Presenting.

    I have a huge irrational fear of oral presentations. When I get called upon to stand in front of the class, I can feel their gazes burning into me. I start to feel a bit dizzy and nervous of how they will judge me. Even after I am done presenting I still feel anxious or dizzy.

    I Once Voluntarily Spoke In Front Of My High School Class...

    It was really hard, but I felt I had to say what I did. It was about my experience with being bullied and how people will judge you without even knowing you. To be honest, I probably looked like an idiot up there, and I was extremely nervous. My lips actually felt like they were...

    Friday. Presentation. Hurry Come Already!!!

    When I was 15, I was never terrified of presentations. I came from a school where people didn't really care about studies or presentations, so it was really easy for me to feel confident about public speaking. I always felt in a way, superior to the rest of my schoolmates, having...

    Part of the Job

    As part of my job I listen to and give many presentations throughout my day.  It is not unusual for me to be on conference calls sometimes 12 hours a day.  I really don't mind giving presentations as much as I do listening to them.  See I find it hard to stay awake...

    It Depends.

    It depends what the presentation is. I've yet to give a presentation for my Linguistics class that didn't end up with me just spazzing in front of the class, but I've also given presentations for some of my other classes that I did an awesome job with. Maybe it's because I'd...

    It's Awful..

    I hate having to stand up and be the center of attention while trying to sell an idea to a group of people. I've only really done presentations in a "mock" situation in my Oral and Business Communications classes, but I hate it! I'm never as prepared as I thought I was...

    Fear So Intense, You Shake

    College presentations are brutal. But then again, you're in front of a better and maturer audience then in high school or middle school. The worst part is being nervous in front of specific people. Sometimes certain people just make it worse for you, even if they've never spoken...

    Used To Hate Doing Then
