I can’t help but feel a sense of disappointment for not dealing with my fear towards my Japanese presentation today at an earlier date. This fear, which saw me spending ages creating a Keynote presentation (only to scrap most of it when I found out it was way too long), resulted in my failing to learn my script properly, which had a major detrimental impact upon my performance.

I feel disappointed with myself, and take it as a lesson that this is not to be repeated.

In other news, happily, I am increasingly saying ‘No’. I’ve said it a number of times this week. In fact, just this morning I said ‘No’. Long may the ‘No’s’ continue!
