I finally got speech #4 written. I really was hoping to be able to do this one without notes, but so far so disastrous on that aspect. I'm thinking that I may want to bring up a "music stand" to have my text on, so can at least use my hands. I get so lost so fast if I don't have the stuff I wrote in front of me ... it's awful ... I really don't know how these other folks can get up and just wing it without totally losing their track. Right now I think I'm the worst person in our whole chapter when it comes to this ... which is really bumming me out, because I can be so damn good WITH the text in front of me (like with a teleprompter). Damn, I miss radio ... all talk, no eye contact!
