My minor is Speech/Communications; because of this, I have to (get to?) take lots of public speaking classes, & also GIVE speeches as well. Right now, I’m sitting in my COM 213 awaiting the opportunity to give my first speech of the semester. The topic is an article that I’ve recently read; specifically my response to it. There’s only 3-4 minutes for me to talk, which is a lot less than I’m used to.
I don’t feel like being here. Sometimes it feels like I’m just putting in time; I get through by thinking about how this is just a small part of the school experience that I have been a part of for the last 20 years in pursuit of a college degree… otherwise, I might wig &/or never go to class. oh, its my turn.
