In Photo 1 today, everyone was giving their final presentations, which are slide shows set to your choice of music, making a pseudo music video. How it goes is the teacher leaves the room and the person would do a practice run and make sure everything is in order, then the teacher would come back in and the student would do the “real” presentation. Thanks largely to Lauren editing down a song for me, my presentation went much better than I anticipated, people responded well, and the teacher complimented me on my multiple exposure shots.
Then I had to go make an idiot out of myself. I was so psyched about my slide show doing well that I didn’t even notice that the guy after me forfeited his chance to do a practice run and was starting his presentation right that moment. I, assuming he was just practicing, was turned ninety degrees away from the screen so as not to spoil it for myself and was playing with my cell phone. I continued my performance by talking to the guy behind me (Why is he just nodding?), and for a grand finale I walked out just before the end to get a drink of water. Only when I heard everybody clapping 20 seconds later and noticed the teacher wasn’t in the hallway with me did I realize that had been his real presentation.
It took me a good minute to work up the guts to walk back into class.
