life begins - me


Just had to do a training session at work - anyone who actually knows me personally knows that I *really* hate getting up in front of people and talking. Call me shy, call me insecure, call me whatever you want and I'll take it personally and go and cry in a corner...

Sorry went off on a tangent there!

Anyway, what I was saying was that I know it's a personal thing, I'm just not good at talking to people. If I could do a training course by email or LJ I'd be fine - more than fine actually, I'd be in my element! but talking? and having people look at me? Not my thing at all.

So this is the second in a series of sessions - I think there's only going to be one more - and should really have taken place last week but I was ill and had to postpone it till today.

It went okay I think, I got the points across and everyone seemed to get what I was saying so score one for me! Now I just have to work out how to do next week's one when it's practical stuff that doesn't really work all that well on a power-point presentation. I am actually going to have to speak and make coherant sentences... not looking forward to it all!

But for now - yay! It's over and I can get back to normal work stuff in the meantime!

life begins - me

(no subject)

I'm Scottish, I'm proud to be Scottish. I love my nation and much as I bad-mouth our sports teams I support them wholeheartedly.

Sometimes however I read something that makes me ashamed of my nation. these men are dying in the same city I am currently in and the City Council is doing nothing about it.

To my horror I wasn't even aware of this until mirabehn posted it on her journal.

Shells again!

Okay so again with the LJ cut because a few of you are at Sky One rate for Angel....

This is probably a huge mistake....

.... I finally tracked down a decent image editor which means I can start experimenting making my own fanvids. It's downloading as I type and in 8 minutes I should be able to take a look at it and try to work it out.

When I got hold of PhotoShop it kind of dominated my time to the extent that I didn't get a whole lot of anything else done for ages and now I'm doing the same again?

Ah well, at least I can finally get a better showreel together now even if it's just from an editing perspective!
