public speaking
tues 20 sept 2011

Today at the day job, I decided I had to conduct a meeting.

A short meeting. I had a list of a few little reminders for the people in the warehouse. Less than five minutes of talking. And less than ten people, staring at me, most of them my friends.

Now, let me tell you something... In real life, I am the most shy person you will ever meet! I don't talk to people. And I'm an extreme introvert, I go out of my way so I don't have to talk to people.

Now, let me tell you something else! In theory, I don't have a problem with public speaking.

ha! Isn't that funny?!

Unfortunately, in practice... I talk too fast, and then I hyperventilate, and my brain shuts down so I can't think of anything clever to add to my speech!


Altho the hyperventilation is physically uncomfortable, it's the shut down brain that annoys me the most! I like to keep things light-hearted and I love to make people smile. And when I can't think, I can't do that.

Oh well.
