What did you talk about? How did it go?

Public speaking can be really hard but I know from experience that the very best thing to do is practice.

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

I just talked about the different horses I looked at for sale...something easy and that I knew.
Ehhh...it went okay. I was shaking the whole time...I messed up a few horse names and I felt like I was going to pass out...but other than that, it went okay hehe

Yeah...see the problem is....with friends, family, and people that I know really well, I'm alright...it's going up in front of people that I don't know too well that I get really nervous

How's this for scary - being the very first non-MP, non-peer to ever formally debate in Parliament, standing up in the House of Lords, talking to the people in charge of one of the UK's largest debating organisations, an audience of hundreds, members of the House of Lords and TV cameras, and addressing the Lord Speaker of the House of Lords?

Heh. It was amazing.



Really, if you're scared of public speaking you should try something like debating or similar pursuits - I believe America's got lots of things like Model UN or Model Congress? Ever since I did my debating I've lost just about all fear of public speaking, of making phone calls, of talking to strangers.
