Performance day is today, and I'm excited, and terrified! Our board game looks pretty epic, but wow stress sucks. I love when people come in and go "ooh, aah..." because I realize how little of a clue they have of how much work we put into our projects.
5 weeks, and you see the good and bad side of everyone. Some people pull through when everything goes wrong, there's the crying and fear every year especially for those of us with social anxiety, which is ironically a pretty big part of my school. People come in crying, screaming, and break ups happen, much of this a day or so before performance.
I've been in that group, with the public, so I'm now proud of what happens behind the scenes, the planning and replanning and arrangement of where everything will be, trying to find a good spot to present for everyone.
I'll be presenting today, and I'm stressed, but the time is so much shorter than, say tests. Several hours, instead of several full school days, or weeks. Plus, after Friday, there's break...
