We presented our team project last night and I have to say.....
WE - KICKED - BUTT!!
Our group presented first (which can be very, very good or very, very bad) In our case, I think it made them take it easy on us, because they really didn't have too many bad things to say. The comments got worse as the "jury" got crankier as it got later and later. I amazed myself by being completely comfortable standing up and talking in front of a group of people that were judging me and I was so nervous about how nervous I was going to be that I wasn't nervous at all! Crazy, huh? I actually got a few laughs - always good to get the crowd on your side =)
I'm still concerned about my grade because, quite frankly, I have no idea how this will be graded. Apparently our grade is made up of:
1. Evaluations by your other teammates on your performance through the project (not worried there)
2. Evaluations by the two professors
3. Evaluations by a jury of 5 people, including someone from the city planning department, two architects who have been working on the project for years and the two developers who own the site.
I have no idea where I stand. Luckily, I had enough knowledge to be able to intelligently answer their questions and comments to me about why we did this or why we did that. My team interacted with the audience and I think we really did the nicest job of presenting, although I don't know that we had the best design. But, I'm comfortable with what we did, I feel we did really well, and most of all...
THANK GOD IT'S OVER!!!!
