Love Vacuum and Helen, great job flac.
Well I'm not trying to give you a motivational speech here, but any sort of public speaking or performance in front of a crowd is pretty complicated and a difficult thing to master. I'm just saying that you clearly love speaking about these subjects that you love to study, and if one failure-- one which you still have not gotten a clear explanation for-- is going to make you take a break, then it seems like you're betraying your commitments to these things.
I played piano for 12 years and ended up playing at some really big stages more than once. After a shitty, shitty performance I wanted nothing more than to have nothing to do with the piano for a while, but my mom made me watch the recordings which I fucking hated doing. I ended up glad that I had these recordings to be able to proactively assess my performance instead of wallowing in the failure.
Not trying to push you in any way, just pointing out that you're doing something really really cool, which makes me pretty jealous as someone who loves physics but is mediocre at it, and you may be taking a setback a little too harshly here.
- I'll likely give it a rest until the next semester.
If the true reasoning was some flaw in your performance as a lecturer, I think the absolute worst thing you could do is to give it a rest. If there are flaws you need to find a way to do it again in some form, record yourself, and find out exactly what you need to improve on.
Late again, but I I've balanced out last week's bayonet-to-the-foot with this week's getting to hold a bunny for 10 mins during a "stress and wellness" fair that my school held today. The fair seems more like an apology for the emotional, mental and physical molestation of the Corps on a daily basis but I accept that apology in the way of "fuck yeah, bunnies!"
To be fair it was because we often play a game when standing around during parade/marching practices where you take the bayonet off of your parade rifle and dangle it at head-height, dropping it as close as possible to his foot to get him to flinch.
This guy decided to tomahawk his bayonet while I wasn't even looking and turned out to have great aim. Pierced through my leather shoe and into my foot, didn't make it out the other side though! I'm still not sure if I lost for getting stabbed through the foot or I won for not flinching. Anyway, just 5 stitches.
i agree, possibly 9
