UPDATE: My laptop has now been fixed, had to reinstall my whole damn OS and then some. At least I don’t have to use my roomie’s laptop anymore – I hate sharing.
With the biggest headache, I shall start this post. Fuckity, fuck, fuck.
I feel like my whole life has writer’s block. No, wait – that doesn’t even make sense. I mean, I’ve had writer’s block for months now and it started to really grate on my nerves. Partially because my laptop has decided to fuck up and I have to reinstall the OS but I can’t without any Internet and my harddrive’s gone and fucked up as well, so I can’t access any of my old stories, etc. I actually feel like crying because if I don’t get my harddrive fixed I don’t know what I’ll do. A LOT of pictures and memories are on that drive. Fuck me for being a careless bastard.
My writers block temporarily subsided and allowed me to plot out a new story about a bunch of teens who find portals dotted around London, which lead to parallel universes. I’ve already written a couple of pages, and it seems alright so far – I’ll see as I go along and I’ll most likely post a couple chapters on here. I could do with some critique.
I’m going to post about public speaking. What do you think of it? You good at it? Bad? Personally, I am spectacularly crap at public speaking – I stammer, I shake and I turn as red as a tomato and it’s all a disaster really. The reason why I’m posting about it is because I mentioned in a previous post that I have to do a speech in an upcoming class. I am dreading it like no man’s business.
When it comes to public speaking, if I don’t have to do it, I won’t. Hence why in year 10 when we had a mock speaking exam, I vehemently refused to do it to the point where I actually cried in front of my English class. Some people where like, for fucks sake. They don’t understand how hard it actually is for me to get up there, on my own, and speak in front of a bunch of people even if they are my friends. I don’t know what it is but I’m instantly struck with fear if I even think about stepping onto a platform. I can speak in front of people if I’m in a group, that is absolutely fine – I mean I did drama for about 5 years and had main parts where I had to act by myself but I don’t know that’s different to actually making speech.
I have this churning feeling in my stomach every time I think about the speech that I have to do and I don’t even know what the hell I’m going to say yet either. I might just speak about public speaking? How it’s my worse nightmare and maybe give a few examples? Asdghjkl. That’s sounds ideal but I’ve still got this sinking feeling and it won’t go away. Cause I’m going to try something different and go out there without flashcards and presentations because I ALWAYS hide behind them and look like a total idiot, so as long as I know my basis I’m going to try and wing it. Wish me luck.
I got tagged by Sakura to answer 11 questions, so here goes:

3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create eleven new questions for the people you tag to answer.

Okay, so honestly I don’t have 11 people to tag and I know the rules say you can’t say “You’re tagged if you’re reading” but I don’t give two flying fucks, so therefore if you are reading this you’re tagged. Congrats.
