So, How Was The FR&Acking!?

  • Sep. 25th, 2004 at 8:06 PM
Wild Laugh
Today we had our Financial Research and Analysis (FR&A) presentation.  I tossed and turned in bed all night wondering what my world was coming to.  The night sped past under my sleepless eyelids and with sand-papery lids, I climbed out of bed and took them doggies for their walkie.  Got back, had a shower, chased my mind through the shallows of the accounting formulae that I could recollect to no great acclaim.

I finally dressed and snapped up some breakfast.  Dodged an incoming a penguin-faced car-cleaner and brought the engine to life.  Drove like the maniac that I sometimes am apt to turn into in times of strife and bitterness and reached respectably, 15 minutes into the FR&A session.

Lucky as I am at times, our group, which was scheduled to be the first presentation for the day was moved up by two slots so we finally got around to making our presentation at number-3 instead of number-1.

I got a frantic phone call midway through the graph sheet validation and explanation.  A quick pause later, I was back on track without having let anyone know that I was disoriented totally out of whack.  :o)  No one even realized that I was in demand enough to have people calling me mid-session.  lol!  I was a good four and a half degrees colder than i was when I'd, oh so confidently, walked on-stage beaming my winning smile to my wits compromising end.

Anyway, Presentation done and zapped out, I await the conclusion of a painful stretch of life.  It turned out that no one realized that I'd kipped a beat, no one noticed my lack of confidence, no one so much as detected the fact that I was so nervous, my hands were wringing themselves into a frenzy, no one noticed that I'd completely lost it!  :o)

And as fate would have it, The presentation went so well, people actually complimented me and my mates on a job well done.  So good were we that we actually ended up at the top of the list.  :o)  What say you to a night in bed completely wasted on mental torture?

Well, here I am now, miraculously alive and breathing.  If only I could pull stuff like this off more often....  I'd be the best!  Hah!

Yenniwayz, as life would have it, I'm scheduled with a handful of examinations around the corner, three horrific presentations clawing their way into my calender and of course, a life that never even existed.


Question  :  What might I possibly lay in my wake I ask....
Answer    :  An echo of incredible silence....

Kaydeeyoh!

Re: Congrats
Thanks, though finance ain't my cuppa tea you know.... :-P

I just kinda seem to work well with projecting myself well in presentations, I guess that's just about all that pulls me through. :o)

Hmmm.... Well, I'm actually quite used to living on a low sleep diet. And the calories I injest are just about the only thing that sustain me through my days. :) I can eat like a pig and still feel hungry! :) That's the key to life!! If only I could retain some fat now.. :( Life would have been so much better.... :(

Thanks for the congs, though I was'nt exactly plying for that when I wrote that update. lol! :">

Kaydeeyoh Yo!

People really don't pay attention do they?! LOL. Be glad!!!

What say you to a night in bed completely wasted on mental torture?


Now that you've experienced both, wouldn't you say the mental torture makes this triumph much much sweeter?

All the best for exams. And life... turns out just fine, I've heard. :)

*kisses the skys!* :o) Umm.. Hey! You would'nt happen to keep a stock of weed on yuh, wud ya? :o))

I'm glad, I sure am glad. Heh!

wouldn't you say the mental torture makes this triumph much much sweeter?

Absolutely!! It's after all, relative in significance.... If I had had a good nights sleep, I would'nt have appreciated the whole thing so. :o)

Thank Kaydeeyoh for little mercies like my insomniac tendencies.... lol!

Thanks for the thumbs up!! ;o)

And life... turns out just fine, I've heard. :)

Ummm.... I'll partially disagree with you there. My thoughts are of the kind that say that Life might not alway turn out just fine until you look back on it. and wether it looks fine or not, it still goes on.... :o)

Zingggg!!! Kaydeeyoh!

Thankyou. :)

I fear fear itself.... And I fear I don't hide that fear of fear.... :o)

How on Planet Terminus do you come up with choice words like that!? It's like you got a book full of original quotes beside your PC! :oP

:"> Thankyou!

ROFLMAO! I wish i had a book of quotes to make my life easier. But these are basically the end_statements(conclusions) of the musings i have every single moment.
But, u can always make my life easier by gifting me a book of quotes, so tht i can think beyond wat others have already thought! :D

A quote book, in my understanding, freezes mental growth.... No matter how hard one might try to work ahead of quotes, nine times out of ten, you'll be meddling with the quote itself rather than extending the thought....

:o)

Besides, I've read most of the quotes people keep posting and I'm tired of the old.... You're new, you're original, you're human! :o) Yet, you're a friend and it's nice to see you grow the way you do when you're not so drunk. :-P

So, no quote book presntations my friend, It's for our common good! :o)

Kaydeeyoh!

P.S.: I've said this before, and I'll say it again.... You remind me a bit about myself at times.... :)

No quote book it is!
You're new, you're original, you're human!
i am a little skeptical abt the latter after seeing the ppl arnd me "claiming" to be human!

Yes, Me and Fear! I have no fear when it comes to admit that I do have fears. Besides, I'm not as perfect as many of us are. My theory is that the more you learn and understand, the more you fear everything. Think about it, you might draw some inspiration from it. Infact, I've already drawn inspiration.... I'll post something about it one of these days. :o) Maybe even today if I have the time. :o)

baap c'mon fear is all in the head.

You think I don't know that? :o) We are all certainly aware of that fact. If we did'nt have any heads, we' never know what it is to fear.... :o)

Not when I think I'm gonna fail really.... There is more to that dimention. it's like an iceberg.... :o)

U did it....hehe...keep it up.....
Really...sometimes we get so nervous about things which at the end turn out so evry fine....and then we are like Oh Lord!!! y did we waste time thinking so much about it....
but it doesn't end there...next time something similar happens....we end up worrying again.....rite???

Yenniwayz, as life would have it, I'm scheduled with a handful of examinations around the corner, three horrific presentations clawing their way into my calender and of course, a life that never even existed.

I'm sure you'll get thru them as well....ALL THE VERY BEST!!

Yeah, we did it.... (there were four others doing the presentation with me) :o)

So true.... Every time something comes up again, I'm just as nervous as I was the last time it happened.... :o) It's all in the game I guess. lol!

Thanks.... :) If you're praying for me, I guess I can use that as excuse enough for me to stop worrying. Hehe!

It's an open ended question Saps, It really is just to project a vague representation of the _lost_ quality of my mind when I'd posted my post. The answer is something I know can never be given without prejudice. But still, to prevent a readers mind from trying to answer the question I left half open, I gave an equally ambigious answer that simply states that there is no answer given. :o)

It's hard to explain why I asked that particular question and why I gave that specific answer.... But I guess it's easier to come to a decent conclusion with these thoughts.... :o)
