Having recently moved to a new country and started a new job, I've done quite a lot of this recently, but if anything, I think I might be getting worse at it. This thought disconcerts me slightly - when did I become so self conscious? For someone hoping to carve out a career for herself in the media in the not so distant future, this does not bode well. All of a sudden I find myself so overwhelmed at the thought of trying to get across who I am in a few words that I often find myself stumbling over my own tongue in a desperate effort to make myself seem appealing.
I think this might take a bit of time to iron out.
Time, and vodka.
