Today deserves a blog because I was able to report in front of the block and a consultant. I was tasked to present the clinical diagnosis of a paper case based on a short history and PE findings. It would not be possible without the help of my groupmates especially in drafting my script. I know that I am not a good public speaker based from the previous years. Thus, in my perseverance to hone my speaking skills, I accepted the assignment of discussing avascular necrosis, which Jhing asked of me. That means feeling again that “parang mamamatay ka na” kind of palpitation, stutter, uncontrolled rate of speech, mispronunciation, pressured thought, butterflies in the stomach and/or gagging, unexpected clumsiness, and awkward stares in front of me. Nevertheless, I think I dealt with the situation fair enough. With good preparation and several practices, deep breathing, personal rituals/exercise, positive attitude and faith in God, I believe will be surpassing similar future tasks. By the way, while going to the conference room, one significant thought came to my mind. The day is another ordinary day for most people, but to me, it is one of the days that I need to prove something. At the end of the report, another thought came to my mind. Never deviate from what you have prepared even if there is a lot of distractions.
