You know, nothing that I know of makes me aware of the inexorable progress of time like public speaking does. I hate public speaking for two reasons. I am not a verbose person by nature and when you give a speech, you need the ability to improvise among other things. However, the main reason why I hate it is Glossophobia. I have heard that more people are afraid of public speaking than dying.
I was told on Tuesday that I had to give a 5 minute speech for our area meeting. I thought I was lucky that I only had to dread this upcoming event for two days. But then it was postponed until the following Tuesday. Argh! A whole week of dreading is not a fun thing at all.
But I got through it! Woo woo!
