I’m back to talk about something I tried out recently: explaining my thesis in under 3 minutes…
I somehow decided it would be a good idea to partecipate to this event after receiving an enticing email from my university.
I thought “it will take me only 3 minutes!”
Too bad that I was never very good at learning anything by heart… So about a million attempts later (each about 3 minutes long) I realised this was a greater task than I expected.
I was fairly confident I could say everything under 3 minutes…but would I remember what to say?
The answer to that is UMMMMMMMMM……NO!
I ended up losing track of what I had to say and mutter something incoherent about how larvae evolved multiple times, right in the middle of my speech.
For this reason I’m now going to share a re-take of the original video. I know right…CHEATING!!!
And for those of you brave enough to listen to my ramblings for three minutes you’ll get a sneak peak of little – oh not so little anymore – Pesto.
