I am a part of the National Music Therapy Research Unit or NaMTRU, at the University of Melbourne. Twice yearly all the post grad students get together and present wherever they are up to with their research.
There is always a visiting professor - from one of the consortium of universities that NaMTRU is part of - who gives feedback and offers their opinion. This time it is Brynjulf. He is a guru of Community Music Therapy and this is part of what I am looking at. It is exciting, nerve racking and very inspiring. I met him on Thursday and again today, but tomorrow I have to present my work.
I cannot seem to get my thoughts into any sort of order. I am terrified of presenting gobbledy gook to someone I respect.
not even Big Cat is helping!
Sometimes the hardest thing is living up to the expectations I have of myself
Anyway, this is not getting it done either.
Pressure pushing down on me
