any rough mornings today?
This morning started off well, prepped my lunch, drank some water woke up well rested, and going over a speech I had to make for a public speaking class. I drive 20 minutes to get to school only to realize I left a workpage at home that I needed for my speech to be graded on.
I had prepared everything and made sure was ready to go the night beforehand, and I plum forgot to grab my workbook. It was too late to go back and grab it, and I had to quickly think of how I can get a copy of the graded sheet to my teacher. There were no exceptions for not speaking and without this sheet, I would get a 0%. I asked a few people that didn’t present the same day as i if i could borrow theirs and exchange mine next class- all were not able.
I found a copy of a workbook at the front of class and asked the teacher if I could copy into a word document, which she reluctantly said yes to. Spent the 10 min before class typing this up and finished before class statred, but needed to print it. Missed 2 speeches getting that done.
Come the speech itself, I didn’t forget all I wanted to say but I forgot how I wanted to say it. Felt a little rambly, and unorganized. I keep teelling myself all of this is better than a 0%, but I am just fully embarrassed for myself and likely got a poor grade.
I was pretty prepared up until that point of forgetting, it just has my day a bit shaken.
Any mornings to share? Good or rough? Or any bad speeches they’ve experienced themselves or through another poor speech? Could use a distraction right now
