*pant* *pant* *pant*

Because of the procrastination problem I had with putting off projects until the last minute at the end of last quarter, I resolved this quarter to volunteer to do projects and presentations early in the quarter, and get them done with.

Unfortunately, I did this in two classes, ENG 335 and COMM 327, and ended up having to give TWO presentations in one day! Eeek!

So I was up really late last night working on the presentations, then got up early to work on them.

At 11, I ran up to campus to meet with my COMM presentation partner, and do our final walkthrough of the presentation. Then I raced home, put the finishing touches on my ENG presentation, burned the powerpoint on a CD, raced to class, gave my presentation on Frantz Fanon & Algeria (see previous LJ entry), then raced home again because I forgot the tape measures I needed for my COMM presentation. Raced BACK to school, parked illegally in the lot, raced up to COMM class, and gave my presentation there on Nonverbal Communication & Proxemics. Whew.

After class, I went back to my car, and saw I had a parking ticket - I was expecting it, but I don't care it was totally worth it to go get the tape measures - and came home.

Whew!

Both presentations were well-received, though I won't know my grades on them for a while. I'm just glad they're done, and I don't have to stress about doing these for the rest of the quarter. Yay!

Now I just want to crawl into bed and sleep...

For my Global Postwar Film class, I had to give a short presentation on the political context of Frantz Fanon and the film we are watching tomorrow, The Battle of Algiers.
(Click to see my slideshow.)

At the end of this presentation, I showed the class a short clip from the motion picture, demonstrating an example of how Fanon's ideas about colonial brutality are applied in the film.
