Isabella and Jessie
I had a hectic day today. I got up at 6:30 to go over my slides for a later presentation. After a brief breakfast, I went back to work on my slides again. As I examined my slides, I got less and less confident in my lecture. A familiar feeling occurred to me that I haven't been well prepared for today's lecture recording. I need more time to prepare. I even thought about calling my students to postpone the recording by one day. I felt like I'd better do it tomorrow. Then, I recalled my friend's reminding: " Done is better than perfect. Get started as soon as possible." So I gathered my courage to go to the studio as I planned. During the recording, I didn't feel very comfortable before the camera. My brain went blank now and then. Fortunately, the student in charge of the camera(or- recording?) was patient and supportive. He told me he would edit the video and cut clips where I didn't perform well. Finally, I finished it by 1 pm. I am very glad I hadn't flinched when I feared my possible failure. Instead, I made it no matter what.
