Eric’s PowerPoint Presentation at the Last Minute • This 20 slide presentation will be about me, I guess. • Do we have to give this in class? • I hope not. • I will also try to use some clip art. • How do I create a new slide? • Oh!

My Family and Roommates • Dana - Mom • Mark - Brother • 4 Dogs and No Cats Anymore - Pets • Mark, Ben, and Ronnie - Roommates
My Goals • Take the DAT • Do well on the DAT • Apply to Dental School • Get into Dental School • Do well in my classes • There are some others, but these are the most important at this point in time.
Some Improvements • The presentation has been very plain. • I could apply some color or clipart. • Sharks are pretty cool, but not as cool as elephants.
Doing More • What else can I do before I am the guy in the red?
To Add Some Color, Press Here • I changed the font color by clicking on the little down arrow next to the font color symbol. Then I went to more font colors and double clicked the one I wanted. • I changed the fill color by basically the same strategy. I think our class ought to send Bill a thank you note for making this so easy. That would be nice.
Line Color • What does line color do? It makes the line around the box. • How about some more clipart? • Camouflage. • Evolution.
How do I get rid of a slide that I created. • Maybe clipart will help!…….Nope, but it is kind of fun. • Wow! That little paperclip guy is very helpful. He showed me exactly what to do. • Thanks Paperclip Guy!
What to do when in trouble. • When I am in trouble, I go to help. Then the paperclip guy comes and takes all my fears, troubles, and feelings of emptiness away.
The Phone • Why does everybody keep calling at 5:30. • Don’t they know I am creating here. • I am running out of time.
How do I color the background? • I know. • Ask the paperclip guy! • He said to go to format and click on background. Then I just fumbled through the rest. • Now here I am with a new background color. You likes?
More about me. • I like to travel. I have been all over the U.S. as well as across the big water. I have been to England, France, y Spain. • Traveling is great. I love to see new things and experience how other people live. I should be on my way to either Germany or Italy by this time next year. • Time for a background change.
Overpowering isn’t it. • Don’t worry, I will change this next slide. • It is now 5:55, hurry! • What else do I like. • I like dogs. Dogs are cool. I would much rather have a dog than a cat. • I don’t mean to offend anyone, it’s just me.
Dogs tend to stink. Dogs cough up bones and other misc. things. Dogs are never too tired. They will run and slobber all day. You can train a dog to get you a beer from the fridge. Cats don’t. Cats cough up hair balls. Yuk! Cats are boring. Cats don’t do what you say. Most barely answer to their own name. Dogs vs. Cats
Why does Ben keep playing the music so loud? • I can’t get anything done. • This is slide 18 and I think I need a title page. • I also need a ending page. • Therefore, I just need to fill this page up with some stuff and I will be done. • Done.
This exercise in now over. • Special thanks to Dr. Gaffin who made me learn powerpoint.
