Today, I got up on stage excited to recite a spoken word piece that I worked on and memorized for about 20 hours, neglecting other obligations like studying for an exam the next day. I blanked out in the middle of the performance in front of hundreds of people. FML

  • OMG! I moderated this one haha that's never happened before :] cool!

    OP, I am so sorry! I always do way better when I cram because I forget things when I study over long periods of time. that sounds absolutely horrible. The exact same thing happened to me, though, way back in 6th grade when I was in a little school speech competition and I blanked in front of everyone. But seriously, everyone's probably forgotten it by now. don't sweat it. 
