my fear of public speaking

i haven't passed a single speech class. i hate having to speak publicly. i feel as though i start talking and stop making any sense or even following the topic i was speaking about. i ramble. everywhere. we lovingly call it "tangentialistic". i claim the word. i have a flag. do you have a flag? no, then it's mine.

I did zero public speaking until I went to college, and then the advisor assigned to me registered me for an 8 a.m., MWF speech class. I was a freshman in class with a roomful of seniors who were trying to get their credits wrapped up. I wanted to die. Somehow, probably through sympathy, I eeked out with a B from the teacher.

I still don't want to ever get up in front of people who are required to hear me get up and talk!
