Well I did it! I gave my speech and I totally ROCKED it out! I was so nervous this morning I thought the moment I got up there I was gonna fall over from exhaustion of not sleeping last night. I was up anticipating the damn thing all night! What is wrong with me?
I was scheduled to go first, so I went into class a bit early to get myself situated and decided that I was gonna take some deep breaths and just let go. That's what I did. I got up there, looked at the 20 something faces staring back at me and just let the shit fly out of my mouth. Since I had the advantage of going first I set the bar for the rest of them. And let me tell you, I set that bar pretty damn high if I do say so myself!
Thanks to all who encouraged me and gave out good thoughts, they came in handy!
