Speeches scare me

June 2, 2011 at 10:00 pm 3 comments

When I started to give my first speech I was terrified! I felt my whole body go numb and my face got hot! I was so nervous! After giving a couple more speeches it totally changed my way on how I speak to people in general. I’m not as scared, still not comfortable, but the important part is I’m not as scared. Speeches have never been my favorite no matter in what class. I really had no idea what I was getting myself into when I signed up for this speech class. Overall though, I had a great time. Especially watching everyone’s demonstration speech. Thank you all for providing me with laughter and tears throughout this entire class and I wish you all well throughout the rest of your school days to come.

    Ditto. I had no earthly idea what I was getting into either. I am use to being in the background and that is where I am comfortable. In Candee’s class there was no flying under the radar. She had a way of getting us all involved and engaged.

    Sandy, I agree, I am sooooo thankful to have been a part of this class. Everyone is so awesome!!

    Take care and God bless.

    You and I were in the same boat, I was so nervous I thought I was going to pass out. But as I got to know everyone in the class, I dont ever want to stop giving speeches in this class.

    I agree. I was kind of worried when I had first taken this class. I had more fun and know more about my fellow classmates than I do in any other class.
