It is no secret that I am very shy and that I prefer to be behind the camera. And while I aced my reports and presentations in school and at work, I do not really talk when it is not necessary. And the only reason why I was ever in school plays or agreed to do an interview for a lifestyle show today, it is because I want to conquer my shyness.
But it is a long process, I realized. Everytime I do something that requires to be infront of people or the camera, I get terrified. And that's exactly what happened today.
I was so nervous, my mind went blank. I groped for words. Plus, I had difficulty speaking because of my braces! You know how, with braces, your S would sound shhh? Or how you'd always sound like you are going to have an asthma attack?
To make the long story short, I kinda messed up. Although the producers kept assuring me I did well, I still felt I could've done better. EJ and N were both very patient with me. They were the nicest people. And my sweet sister D who was with me for some moral support comforted me by saying: "It's ok, it happens. But at least, you sounded sensible."
Oh, I should just stick to photography and blogging. Or maybe, I should start a vlog. That should be my training ground for the next guesting. Haha.
Really, a part of me is wishing I could re-do everything today.
Thank you, J, EJ, N, CBB, and D!
