"The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night."
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Love that quote! Very inspiring...

So, I worked on conquering English 101 and 102, Calculus I, General Chemistry 151 and 152, Organic Chemistry 201 and 202, etc. You would think that, after all of that, a measly speech class would be nothing...bahahahaha....that assumption on my part was so wrong! Summer 2010 sneaked up, and that confidence I was hoping for was nowhere to be found. But, I managed to pull enough nerve together and enrolled myself in speech class, once again, for this summer.
The days before summer semester began ticked down...too quickly. June 14th came...too quickly. June 14th was the awful day that speech began. I was nervous; there was not an ounce of confidence anywhere near me. But, I went to class that day. I even went the next day (considering my track record, that was an amazing feat to pull off!) and the next. The deadline for speech #1 reared its ugly head two weeks into the course. The day of the speech I mechanically walked up to the podium...thinking all the while "WHAT AM I DOING!?!?" But, you know what, it was over in about seven minutes. Something I had been dreading for years was over in a matter of minutes. I survived! And, I have survived through two more speeches. (All with A's :) ).
Now I can't believe I spent years dreading something that was over in seven minutes...seven minutes just doesn't seem worth all that dread now :).

I encourage you to check it out! It is worth the read. (Also, they have a book, Lies Women Believe, which I want to read myself in the future. If you are a bit older, this one might be more relevant for you.) Anyway, a few days ago, I came across their website. They have a wonderful blog where they tackle all sorts of topics. So, head on over there and see for yourself! :)

Well, well...I thought I could stay away from the blogging world. I thought I was strong enough to walk away from my little, itsy-bitsy corner of the Internet and not look back. However, I was wrong. I was an avid blogger in my younger days (15-17ish), and, now that I've reached the ripe old age of 20, I've decided that I miss blogging. It is quite a surprising fact for someone who has always claimed to hate writing.
Well, we will see where this blog goes. I really haven't decided on a particular topic I want to write about. I suppose I will just write about things that I find interesting or fun to write...and hopefully you will find interesting or fun to read! So, welcome to my blog! Glad you stopped by :).
By the way, here is my old blog if you are interested.
