Goodbye, 2011

And somehow we're done with 2011 already. Last year I made one goal (getting this site to the top 50k in Alexa), and I didn't make any effort whatsoever to reach it, so at this point I'm giving up on yearly goals. But I will say this-- if SETT isn't rocking and rolling by this time next year, I'd better be a famous rapper.

I may be blind towards the future but hindsight is 20/20, so I'm going to a quick summary of the year.

Speech 2: The Magic of Questions

On a speech a week

Get your popcorn ready. Or maybe just your regular corn. What? You don't have any? That's OK; I'll corn it up enough for all of us with this speech. At least in the beginning.

Toastmasters' second project encourages me to mind my transitions as I flow through a well thought out outline. One thing that helped me to do this speech without using notes was just memorizing the transitions. The content was of lesser importance as far as memory went, since the transitions just led me to it.

It was nice to be prepared with an introduction for myself this time, but it's too bad that I didn't find out who to give it to before the meeting started. So I embarrassed myself by fumbling around with it right before the speech started. However, the setback didn't phase me too much.
