My First Speech

August 2, 2010 at 10:27 pm Leave a comment

Where do I start.. I’ll go back to the beginning.  I have dropped speech class twice. Now, I am down to nine classes before I graduate and I had no choice but to take it and get it out of the way. I have never had to nor wanted to talk in front of people. I have always been scared to get in front of people that I didn’t know or a big crowd. I am kind of shy and not the loud one of the bunch. So, our first speech was an easy one for the most part. We had to pick a topic to read. I choose “Clifford.” I have read it over and over to my niece so I was really familiar with the book. I remember being very nervous reading the book in front of the class cause I didn’t really know anyone. But I didn’t make a lot of eye contact which made it easier. I was so glad to get done  I felt myself starting to read faster then normal and sweating. Its crazy how easy it is to read in front of my niece but then in front of a crowd everything changes.
