Next week, on Monday, I must give an important presentation at work. I dislike having to give presentations but promised to do it. I can’t wait to be done with it. I resent speaking in front of other people. I get so nervous. I plan to have everything prepared by Saturday, so I can spend Sunday reviewing and rehearsing. If I manage to not make a complete fool of myself, I might even get a raise. I deserve to get a raise. I have been working so hard. Don’t get me wrong! I enjoy working, I just don’t enjoy giving presentations.
