Almost the Beginning of the Second Week
By the way, I have to say, I really think that the Appel Commons leaves the good food for weekend brunch. What is served during the week isn't that great at all. I also finally decided to try having my first bowl of cereal here. I normally have cereal every morning for breakfast at home, but I am afraid of drinking any kind of milk that is not from home. Last time I had milk from somewhere else, I caught the stomach flu. However, I am alive and well. I can now go back to my daily breakfast staple and that is cereal. I love cereal so much. I could literally live off of it.
When I returned to the dorms, I went straight to work on my part of the Powerpoint presentation for tomorrow. I was still incredibly confused about how I should structure my part. Once I set everything up and included all the content, I was really not satisfied. I thought that my part looked too boring. I wanted to add as many awesome effects as I could and for it to have as much pizzazz as possible, but it would've looked too cluttered and I was not sure how to put those effects into my slides anyways. At that point, I wished Mr. McCarthy had gone over the Advanced Powerpoint lesson. That lesson, however, will not be taught until next week. I do want to master Powerpoint. I want to show everyone at home my skill! Wouldn't it be great if during next school year I could produce a presentation that amazed everyone because it would contain so many features that no one exactly knew about?
Once I got to office hours, my groupmates and I put everything into place and looked at the entire thing. I was still a bit upset at my part. I tried to add to it as much as I could. I wanted it to be perfect. The thing about me is I always second guess myself. When someone thinks something is fine, I don't. I need to stop and just accept things, like a Powerpoint slideshow, the way they are. What a challenge for me!
