Public Speaking 1110


Let me just tell you that I am not at all excited about the class I am taking at College right now.........PUBLIC SPEAKING 1110. Everyone knows I am a pretty outgoing girl but I DO NOT LIKE TO SPEAK out in front of anyone I do not know or groups of 5 or more.... I get like terrified!!! I remember my senior year of highschool senior project... I had to give a 5 minute speach and P.S. "IT WAS HORRIBLE!!" My knees were shaking , my hands, I felt like the words were stuck in my throat!.... Absolutely horrible!!! Lord knows I probably need the class due to my high anxiety levels when it comes to public speaking...I GUESS I WILL GET SOME PRACTICE since I have to give 4 Public Speaches throughout the semester...and several impormtu's ( Surprise Speaches!!). Soooo.. I am totally freaked out... THANKS! And YES the Class is required for my major...otherwise I would darn sure not take it!

If you tell us all when your speeches will be we will all show up and make faces in the back of the room and then you won't be nervous anymore! You'll be fine. Your teacher know's how to call 911 just incase you faint! :)

Aren't you supposed to picture everybody naked? You'll do fine. A lot of things get easier after you have kids. I think you think, 'If I gave birth to 2 kids, I should be able to give this speech.'

You'll do fine. The best advice is be the first one to give your speech. If it's well prepared, then others in the class will have to top your speech. Good luck.
I'm taking a writing and reading course to help with passing the Regent's test. Then in October I'll be taking US History II. I spoke with the professor, and he said there was only 4 exams. Yeah!!

You'll make it with flying colors... If in doubt just rub up against gigi on class days and maybe some of her ease and talent will come off on you.

When you get comfortable with it all let us know, cause I don't think there is anyone who doesn't get nervous in that situation...

You go girl you'll win da prize! ! !

Hugs,
g'mother C.

I took public speaking back when I went to college the 1st time. When I'm nervous I say "um" a lot. I said "um" more that semester than I ever have in my life.
