Presenting research

I don't like presenting my research. Not because it's unpleasant, but because I psych myself out beforehand and then shake during the presentation. I thought that stage-fright was supposed to decrease with age.

I'm not shy. I think I just fear being judged on something that I really care about. I like my research and want it to be good, accessible, and accepted. I am a decent public speaker, too, I just clam up when I have to present math/CS -- it involves thinking hard while also making a coherent presentation. I just need more practice.

Next presentation? In 15 days.
