Examples of excitement in a Sentence

  1. Courtesy Andy Boyce:

    If we didn't document it right then and there, this bird could disappear again for who knows how long, it was a really rapid progression of emotion. There was nervousness and anticipation as I was trying to get there, hoping the bird would still be there. Just huge excitement, and a little bit of disbelief, when I first saw the bird and realized what it was. And then, immediately, a lot of anxiety again.
