Feeling super nervous about having to make a research presentation tomorrow. I wasn't scheduled to present but my co-author just emailed to say she can't make it because she's not feeling well.
She didn't even send me slides so am starting from scratch . Butterflies in my stomach.
That sucks. Best to try to avoid just reading from a paper version. You co authored so you know the material. Have fun and look at it as a chance to chat about something you really know about.
You know more about the topic than the audience.
Then again I am a nerd and love presenting at conferences.
