This was a triumph.

I'm making a note here:

Perhaps it's true that insensibility to worry is the key to success in certain spheres. It's certainly true that knowing I'd done an irredeemably crappy job preparing for a math presentation helped me present it well; with no way to avoid embarrassment on that front, I didn't have to devote my mental energy to worries. Of course, it's probably better to be insensible on account of confidence than on account of having nothing to lose.

Either way, I think it's time to outgrow my comfortable diffidence in some respects.
