I am like super anxious and shy in social situations and two of my courses require presentations in front of my classmates. In my grades it says things like, "Says 'um' and 'like' too much" which guts me and scares me (more things to be self-conscious about.) I'm striving for an 'A' in all my courses because that's how I roll, but I'm worried that my lack of social graces are working against me. People say, "oh, just feel confident, people can't tell you're nervous," or "Everyone is nervous," or "act like you always do." The thing is, I ALWAYS act socially awkward because I AM that way. :S
