News - Toastmasters
I re-joined Toastmasters this month. It really helps to practice public speaking when you're a student, and especially when you have to do presentations. I first joined a few years ago, in Calgary, but we moved, and I couldn't find a club I particularly liked until now. They meet at a convenient time for me, whereas, most of the other clubs had times either really early in morning, or lunch-time. The club I have joined meets at 5pm on Tuesdays at the university. So, that's where I'll be this evening. Ugh! I already have butterflies in my stomach. I have always wondered why some people can speak to a crowded room, with no problem, while others (me, in particular) would rather jump into a caldron of boiling water, then face that crowd ... and speak ... words ... that make sense.
