A few weeks ago, one of my good friend, Lynn, had her 21st birthday party!
And so kindly, she asked me to do a speech for her! *_* Of course I was super honoured however, if you do know me – you should know much public speaking freaks the crap out of me!! And her party had a billion of people that I’ve never met before which made it oh so much more scary for me ;A;! Luckily, another friend was allowed to do it with me! Yey!
(And a special thank you to Jonhsan for helping me write the speech at 3am when Lawrence bailed on me for sleep ;_; !)
I’m not too sure why I get nervous when it comes to public speaking though!
Because, I notice that when I’m actually up there and speaking , it’s not that bad. It’s just the time spent waiting for your turn to speak, and then walking up to the front! Ahh! But I think it’s just because the audience (most times) are people that I don’t know very well (or at all) and I’m just afraid of making a fool out of myself in front of them!
And the worst part of it all is all the things going on to make you even more nervous!
The sweaty, shaky hands! The increased heart rate! The uncontrollable need to continuously walk around!
Unfortunately (or fortunately in a way?) I am forced to do plenty of oral presentations in my course.
I say fortunately because it actually has helped to improve these horrible nerves I get! (Slightly aha) But still, I absolutely dread doing oral presentations most of all! Especially when your lab/tute group is filled with people that you’ve never spoken to before! Ahhhh. That, and the tutor sometimes decides to ask you annoying questions on the spot ;A;!

Is there something that you’re afraid of?
If I actually answered this question, I think I could list a billion different things ;A;!
