The presentations are done! And I forgot about this post, but putting it up now 😛 The speech rec went well, mine not so well; basically thinking it wasn’t ’til today meant no, things weren’t ready, and not in that “no you’re stressed out and don’t think you’re ready but you’ll be fine because you […]
