I guess I, um, didn't, um, realize how many times, um, the word UM comes out of, um, my mouth!! LOL!! Holy cow!
The funny thing is, that I knew that happened when people get nervous and I was consciously thinking about it before I went. I told Jeff that I needed to really think when I was speaking so I didn't do that. He told me, "Don't think about it too much, just be natural and be yourself and you'll be great!" Even though I lost all my nervousness by the time it was my turn, because everyone there was so great and does such a great job at making you feel comfortable, I felt like I did a good job! If you would've asked me if I said "um" a lot after it was over, I would've said, "NO, I didn't say it at all!" Ha ha! Wow.....have I ever heard myself? Who was that, um, person?!
So, needless to say, I need to work on my public speaking! If anyone has any suggestions to help my "UM" problem, PLEASE....I'm all ears!
Regardless, I had a great time and can't wait to get to do it again. As I promised, here is the link to watch the segment. I'm still trying to figure out how to put the actual video on here? Project instructions to come soon!
