Freaked about Upcoming talk

I mentioned that I've been invited to talk at Hub's U. The day is approaching, and I am putting together the powerpoint. First I was a little freaked becasue I couldn't find the figures my summer students left on my computer, and now I am trying to select a few articles to read in the near future to review the literature and be ready for questions. When I started to go through my pile of papers to do triage, I was overwhelmed at the low ratio of

literature I know


literature I should know / I knew but have forgotten

YIKES!!!! I'm going to sink. The sharks are going to eat me.

Ok, I'm trying to shake it off now.


  1. You'll be fine and they won't feast on you. As I mentioned before, it might be a good idea to put in a slide about how the data were collected, i.e., multiple students over summers. It would provide some useful perspective to your audience.

  2. Thanks. Great suggestion, PLS. I will take your advice.
