Less traveled by…old men… and darkness

When I was choosing my reading at first I wasn’t going to read any of my own work. I started off just picking from Robert Frost work but I couldn’t find anything long enough so I then added some Alice Walker to the mix and it still wasn’t long enough. Then I decided to make it personal with my own work from my senior year in high school. Which made a lot of difference to me.

By the time I got all of this chosen, it was Tuesday and time to listen/ watch everyone give their speech which I was feeling alright because mine wasn’t until Thursday. Once Thursday rolled around and I watched the three before me go I knew the list was getting shorter to my name. I wasn’t really nervous till it was my turn to stand up there alone not presenting a poster but my own work along with some pieces from Alice Walker and Robert Frost. Once over and reading all of the reviews I felt better. I found that I can take things that everyone commented on into the next speech we have to give and I will be able to give it with more confidence and louder hopefully.

    I really liked your speech and I also was very nervous when it came to my turn but before that I really wasnt that nervous till my turn to get in front of the class. I also really like the comments from the class because it also is helping me in what I need to improve for the next speech coming up.
