What to speak about?

Next weekend is my first speech in my Public Speaking class. I’m physically ill. Not because I’m supposed to stand in front of a group of strangers, not because i’m supposed to speak for 5 minutes, not even that I know this will be recorded so I can see what it is that I do – good or bad – (And yes, i’ll probably upload it here for you to see). I’m physically ill because I have to come up with a significant moment where I learned something and that would make a great story… My teacher has said, “This speech should write itself”, which explains why nothing comes to mind.

More to come – or I’ll crash in flames….

  1. Hey Schnik, it surprises me that you are at a loss of words or ideas for your speech. The reason I follow on twitter is because you are clever and witty. I bet you could do 5 mins easy on what you like about twitter and how it impacts your daily life. Or the positive changes that you are making in your life right now are worthy of 5+ mins of inspirational talk. Or your recent award/achievement at RLMLS and your role as a valuable resource to realtors in the portland area comes to mind also. I’ve yet to meet you but those are just a few ideas that came to mind for me. Good luck, you will be fantastic I’m sure.

  2. I’d say that the moment you learned the answer to “What the hell is a Whiffies?” is probably one of those significant learning moments…
