    Default Wish me luck

    Well, I just got done writing a last minute speech that I'm scheduled to give tomorrow between 8am and 9:15am, it's now 3 am. It's a 7 min impromptu speech on the conflict in Darfur and I was worried about coming in way under time, but I had to cut over 5 min. I don't think I'm even gonna be nervous, I'll be in zombie mode and go into cruise control.

    I'm off to bed for 3 hrs. I just hope I don't get in front of the class and zone out or fall asleep.

    Writing is not the hard part. Delivering it is. Except its not. So just try to memorize it before class, don't speak with your eyes to the paper and don't touch the podium. The end.

    I just got home, I had another class after. It went pretty well. Of course there were a few slip ups along the way, but that's to be expected in the first speech of the semester. My only real screw up was my powerpoint that I had up to go with the presentation. I was kinda nervous and didn't hit the slide show button, so it didn't look that great, but I still got my point across, and the teacher said I did a good job when I was talking to her after the class.

    The teacher told us the first day of class how there's always a lot of drops right before the first speech and she was right on the money. Of the 9 people scheduled to speak today (including me) only 4 showed.

    Don't touch the podium, like period, end of story? In what manner do you speak, please elaborate. Thanks.

    He's being figurative. By "podium," he means "penis." Don't touch that while addressing a crowd; it's considered in poor taste. Wait till you're done speaking.
