My speech topic: Is cheerleading a sport?

May 13, 2011 at 6:29 pm Leave a comment

Wow, I thought that first speech was going to be rough. After having probably three mini panic attacks and continually moving myself to the bottom of the list it was finally my turn. I don’t think I’ve ever been so nervous. Once I got up there though things didn’t seem so bad. I looked at my notecards and went absolutely blank. So, I just started talking, which went surprisingly better than I expected. The words started to just come out, and gradually, it started to seem more like a conversation. That took a lot of the pressure off and I relaxed. I think everyone did a great job, and I’m actually not dreading our next speech. This doesn’t mean I won’t make sure I’m last though!
