Another Scary Experience!

A lot of universities need students to do co-facilitation’s which is when you teach the seminar for one class. My university is one of them. I have five of those to do this semester and I just finished my first one yesterday and I thought I would tell you guys about how it went!

Firstly, the seminar topic I was doing was about Kenya so I at least I knew what I was talking about and I didn’t have to do a ton of research on the topic.

So it started with me having to explain the two articles which was alright because I had written notes on what I had to say and kind of just read from the paper. The only thing was I was a little red in the face, kind of looking down while reading and not making too much eye contact. But I don’t think it was that bad.

Then I had to ask question which I had prepared which was a little scary because sometimes people just stare at you and no one answers.

Luckily this class was not like that and people participated and answered a lot which was so great. That was a big load off my chest.

Plus, the professor was SO sweet and helpful. He would always chime in with helpful questions, answers and information. I thought that was nice because some TA’s/Professors don’t do that and you’re kind of just left hanging.

I was super anxious the whole time obviously but it was 50 minutes and I somehow got through it without totally freaking out.

After the class my professor talked to me and told me I did a good job which was so nice of him. I got my results for it and I got 9/10!

I’m glad I have these co-facilitation’s because I’m hoping they’ll help me get over my anxiety a little and be better at being in charge and talking to groups of people.

Well that’s where my story ends. Have an awesome weekend guys!

My Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

So I had one of the worst days ever today. I woke up thinking I would finish my research paper and hand it in by five in the evening and do some revising and stuff but when I woke up all the work I had done was gone!

Image result for what gif

So anyway I had to retype the whole thing by 6 because it was due by 7 and I still had to get it printed and take it to the drop box and stuff.

Image result for urgh gif

I tried really hard to finish the whole thing on time but I was still late and got to the bus stop by about 7pm. I thought okay maybe if I try really hard I can still make it but of course the universe had other plans.

Image result for the universe hates me gif

The bus got delayed and came at about half past 7 by which point of course I was already super late and there was no way I was dropping this thing in on time. And just as a final kick to the face from the universe when I reached school and asked a lady whether the building was still open so I could drop it off she took forever to find out (not her fault at all she was super nice and helpful it’s just the timings were not written anywhere) and so by the time I got to the drop box it was 8.

Image result for the universe hates me gif

I was obviously late and I’ll try to talk to my professor and let him know why I dropped it off so late. He is really nice and hopefully he will understand.

In case my TA is reading this which doesn’t seem likely but just in case you gotta go easy on me man I had a terrible day and tried my best okay! This is Pooja from HIST 2P61 by the way.

Anyway I had a totally different post planned for today but I felt like I really needed to tell you guys about this experience. Hope you guys all had a much better day then I did.

My Scary Experience

So today I had this presentation for my piracy class which was super scary!

Image result for scared gif

I really like the class but I just really hate presentations because I have anxiety as it is I don’t need it to be made worse with worrying about talking in front of a bunch of people.

Image result for anxious gif

Also for some reason (probably because it’s such a fun class) everyone always shows up so there are at least like fifteen to twenty people there.

Image result for full class gif

And I am really not a fan of speaking in front of people especially if there are more then ten people. Plus, two of the people who were supposed to present with us could not make it.

Image result for nooo gif

It was a pretty scary experience and I stuttered and stammered and rambled A LOT.

Image result for RAMBLING gif

But it was also kind of fun and I think it went pretty well for a first presentation. I learnt a lot from the experience and hope to do better the next time I have to present (which I’m hoping is never!)… maybe next time I’ll be less freaked out I hope…

Image result for freaking out gif

Hope you enjoyed hearing about my little experience and let me know in the comments below how your first presentation went!!

Life Updates!

I know I haven’t been blogging much or keeping up to date with everyone else’s blog

Image result for please dont hate me gif

However, I thought I would update you with everything that’s going on right now (admittedly not a lot…)

Image result for doing nothing gif

I have a bunch of assignments due soon (one tomorrow and 3 next week) and I have a midterm test next week for Sociology so I’ll mostly be revising this week which is very hard to do when it’s cold and snowing and all you want to do is curl up in bed and hibernate.

Image result for sleeping gif

I also tried out some vegan Indian food from Touch Of India this week which was really good! Touch of India is one of the only two Indian restaurants in St. Catharines (at least that I know of!) and I thought it would be fun to try out their lunch specials!

It was really good and it pretty affordable too which is always a plus! I would definitely recommend it if you’re ever in St. Catharines!

I also skipped a seminar for the first time since I’ve been in university and felt kinda guilty about it but it wasn’t too important and I really did not want to go. It was super cold and snowy and I just could not deal with it.

So that’s pretty much what’s been going on with me!

Dream Journal!

So today in Psychology we were learning about sleep and dreams and talked about different dreams and how they can be interpreted and it remind me of High School because my friends and I used to discuss the dreams we had that night and we would try to analyse them. It was really a lot of fun!

Image result for dream quotes freud

Coincidentally, just last week I had a really insightful dream that helped clear some things in my waking life and I remember thinking “sometimes I learn more in my dreams than when I’m awake”. Dreams have always fascinated me because I truly believe they have an important meaning behind them and listening to your dreams helps you bring your unconscious thoughts into your conscious which is sometimes what we really need in life. Dreams have a way of telling you things about yourself.

 

Image result for dream quotes freud

I would really love to explore my unconscious more and that’s why I decided to get a dream journal! I don’t remember my dreams as often as I would like to but my professor said the more we try to remember them the more likely we are to actually remember them.

I’ll keep you guys updated on any particularly interesting (or weird) dreams I have!

Escaping Rocks

So I’m trying to escape another semester of  Earth Science but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to. I was thinking of taking Astronomy instead because I love literally everything to do with it! Also I am pretty sick and tired of learning about rocks in Earth Science… I’ll keep you guys updated and let you know how it goes!

Slightly More History Drama…

Firstly, if you’re new to my blog or haven’t been keeping up with my university posts please click here to catch up on what’s going on or you’ll have no idea what’s happening below!

So I was going over my results last week for my History Assignment 1 and what do I see in the comments section? My TA had written 5% off because I hadn’t handed in on time!

Image result for oh no they didnt gif

Well if you’ve been following my History class drama you’ll know that I didn’t hand it in on time because the damn History Department were trying to figure out how to add me to the seminars group online so I can upload the assignment and since it was 100% their fault they hadn’t added me to begin with I was told by my professor that they wouldn’t take off any marks for uploading it a day late!

Image result for this is your fault gif

So I immediately emailed my Professor who then told the TA marker to change it. He didn’t seem apologetic at all about the matter but my TA (who is super sweet and looks like nerdy Taylor Swift) wrote me an email immediately apologising since she didn’t know she I had been having trouble uploading the assignment which I thought was so sweet since she’s the only one who apologised (and very sweetly might I add!).

I really hope this is the last thing that goes wrong for me concerning History or anything in general!

The midterms went okay but not great. I’ll get the results next week!

It Gets Worse… Than A Bit Better…

So today I went to the Registrar’s Office as I was told to do and after wasting my time going there and waiting in line and stuff I’m told *surprise surprise* the Registrar’s Office doesn’t do seminar changes! I can’t even write in words how angry and flabbergasted I was when I heard this! So it turns out the people who keep telling me to go to the Reg Office are the ones who are supposed to be doing the seminar thing for me anyway!

Image result for i was so fucking mad gif

So I emailed them and told them and the only reply I got was ‘what seminar do you want to change to?’ I mean can you believe that? Maybe I’m being a little dramatic but how about a “I’m sorry I wasted like 4 hours of your time when I was supposed to be the one doing it and didn’t realise.” So rude.

Image result for so rude gif

After I emailed her which seminar I wanted to change to they finally changed it after a few hours and yes I’ve been able to upload my assignment. FINALLY!
