This is a question Out of my depth

As a schoolkid, I signed up for a public speaking contest purely as a ruse to meet girls. It haunts me still: in front of 300 people, I started to speak, dried up, stood there for what felt like half an hour staring at the floor and then slowly walked back to my seat. Oh, and the girl I liked laughed.

Have you ever been utterly, completely, devastatingly out of your depth?

University Interview + Hangover = Rejection letter
For once this isnt a post that involves a french exam in junior school (theres alot of those).
So there i was in the car on my way to an open day at Aberystwth university, the previous night had been my mates 18th so i was drinking lots and as i remember eating birthday cake and garlic sauce. Needless to say the car journey was a long one (or at least it felt like it) so that didnt help.
Anyway we got there i felt shit and hoped we would just look around going ooooh look at the pretty buildings. What i didnt know was there was an interview with each prospective student, eek.
Nevertheless the interviewer asked alot of questions on advanced genetics, i sat blank faced mumbling occasionally.
Rejection letter followed soon thereafter
