I've Got Butterflies..and Currently

So I have to speak at an event tomorrow in front of over 300 people...podium, microphone, spotlight, the whole shebang and I am starting to get nervous. Put me in front of a bunch of kiddos and I can sing and dance and make a total fool out of myself no problem, but in front of grown ups I'm beet red and shaking in my boots. So in an effort to distract myself, I'm linking up with Farley for the June Currently...

Africa because I would l-o-v-e to go on a safari. I went on a cruise this year to Cozumel and although I was scared out of my mind that I'd be murdered and turned into a drug mule, we had a fabulous time! I grew up 20 minutes from the beach and I miss it terribly! I live over 5 hours from a beach now and am dying to have my toes in the sand at least once this summer. 

Now, back to rehearsing my speech. Please tell me I'm not the only teacher who still gets stage fright!

  1. Been there, done that, know exactly how you feel! Kids are much easier that grown ups any day. Good luck! You'll do great.

  2. I'm the same way, kiddos are fine but adults scare the bejeebers out of me. Our Summer School started 2 weeks ago and we have 3 weeks left.

  3. I feel the same way. I hate speaking in front of adults but speaking in front of kiddos is easy and fun. Good luck, you will be a super star. Have fun at Lady A. I went to their concert last week here in Cincinnati. Darius Rucker was awesome and then the wind started blowing, the lightening was flashing and then it poured down rain.

  4. I feel the same way, so when I'm talking to grown-ups I pretend they are kids and that helps somewhat! I'm my school's music director so I have to address adults several times a year. Think about how great you'll feel when it's over!
