Helle is so not hot, and this is not something as crude as simple ageism talking
I know, but prettier than Tarja Halonen..

(1) 'Illegal huddle' is the best sports regulation ever.
(2) Madonna is pretty much like a K-pop performer, just with worse taste.
(3) There seems to be an untapped market in Sumo: American Footballers edition.
Especially loved the fat black dude wearing a Bismarck costume and a glowing silver bucket.

Trying to figure out how aware I am right at the moment. I think I managed about 2 hours sleep, possibly 3. Something woke me up in the wee small hours of the morning and I never managed to get back to sleep..
I have to admit, it's one of those things I find interesting. If I only get around 6 hours sleep, but have something specific to be up for, I can be jumping out on the dot, aware and active, feeling all fresh to go. If I don't have anything in specific to be up for and get around 8 hours sleep, I'm dozy and slow to wake... But if I only get 3 hours sleep I'm just Meh. Which is actually quite expected...

Finally getting progress done in the office and we're going to lose someone. Increased workload for everyone and we're going to fall behind again. Will she be replaced, doubtful.
Ah that old classic from management: "I'm too bad at my job to understand what people do for the business but I do know how much they cost the business. Fire away!"

Hm, and found out that my classic Crombie Great Coat is in need of some repair. The stitching at the back of the collar has given way .. Now while I could try some home repair, it's a damn good quality coat, so I think I shall have to take it to a professional to be on the safe side.

I took my daughter to a basketball game, where she was going to do a routine with some other girls at halftime. She is almost 5. Saturday she went to a camp to learn the routine, her grandmother actually bought her an outfit for it.
Right before the performance, she runs up to me and says she is too shy to perform. I try to convince her to give it a try, and her friends are all going out on the floor. Then she started saying she was hungry. Now it was very frustrating to hear that, since I had spent and hour before the game trying to get her to eat more food and she wouldn't. So I told her I would get her something at the snack shack after the performance. She started to have a meltdown. At this point the performance was almost over, so I told her we were leaving. She continued to meltdown, so I picked her up and carried her out (all while holding my 2-year old son.)
On the way home I told her I was disappointed, that we came out to watch her. Eventually she apologized, but I told her she was still going to bed when we got home. I gave her something to eat and then helped her to bed.
It's a weird situation though. I'm not sure how to handle it exactly. This isn't the first time she has done this before a performance, she does the same thing for her dance classes when it is recital time. I don't want to be the parent that just lets my kid off the hook for this stuff, constantly giving positive affirmations even when they are undeserved. But I don't necessarily want to be the Tiger Mom who uses derision and contempt unless my child gets full marks on everything.
So a bit of a rough night, hopefully I can find a decent middle ground here as a parent.

However, as a manager I'd advise you to look at building up the subordinate 'building blocks' of the functioning behaviour. Make her stronger, give her more motivation to complete, positively enable prior through a prep (but don't prep by doing the actual performance, do skills affirmation). I'd also consider whether it's her thing to be performing at all. It's not in everyone's character to want to go out and get public applause or derision, and sometimes it's simply because a person knows they have all the interest, care and support they need already.
EDIT: also, as an amateur actor and singer I'd particularly single out the pre-prep. Do stretches or vocal exercises beforehand to prove you've got the chops to do the full show. BUt don't do the full show, because then you'll get complacent.
