Well I did it- My Informative Speech!

October 28, 2009 at 9:21 am 1 comment

First, I want to thank everyone for the nice comments. Patty, I really appreciate what you had to say, that was very nice. I feel better now that I am finished, however, I feel a little like Michael, I was so nervous I stumbled over some of my words and my mouth was so dry I felt like I had cotton in it. I wish I could have heard Michael’s speech. I bet he did well, he did great on his reading. I know this was different though because we could not read it, that’s what made me so nervous.

You know, I can’t image why I was so nervous because I’ve been doing CNA work forever, it should have just flowed right out of my mouth. But I still found myself wanting to look down at my paper. I can’t wait to hear Jackie’s speech, it is really personal for her and I admire her for wanting to share these experiences with everyone. She’s become a great friend to me since starting college, and I think a lot of her, especially since she doesn’t mind that I am old enough to be her mom.

I thought everyone did a wonderful job Monday on their speeches, I thought Gabrielle had a very good topic, I have a friend who is Gay, and he is the best person. Crystal your speech on alcohol abuse really hit home for me, since someone I care a lot about is letting this controlling disease slowly destroy their life. Frances you delivered a heart warming speech. Working with children has to be rewarding. Loved your speech! Christy, I know you told me you thought your speech was not that great, but I enjoyed learning about the band you admire, also you always add humor which makes it even more interesting. Drew your just a pro!

Well, we are on are way to doing the next speech, The demonstrative speech. I am still trying to decide what I am going to do, I have a few ideas. I think this one will be very interesting.

Candee, I also want to thank you for making this class so much fun, and just letting everyone be their self. I really enjoy this class. You do a great job!!
