Today I did this thing where I talked about our books in front of sixty librarians, and I had a microphone on my collar and everything. I thought I was going to die from nerves at the beginning, but overall it went okay. And the greatest thing? Though I was nervous, I wasn't scared at all. I mean, I'm uncomfortable speaking in front of people like this, but it seems it doesn't actually scare me.

ETA: And then my father, whom I admire and adore, said it was a gutsy thing to do, especially on my own. My sister and I was supposed to do it together, but she is eight-months pregnant and didn't feel well enough to go.

yes, I did

So, this week I did something I've never done before.

My colleague/sister and I had been invited to speak to a group of kids at a local high school's career day about our small company. I was nervous before, as you are if you are me, but when we began talking all that went away and I started to enjoy myself instead.

I don't know if I've ever felt so competent in my life. It was a heady feeling, possibly addictive, and I'm pretty sure I will do it again. Though I can't even say what a surprise that is. Public speaking has always rated high on my hate-list.
