Last Friday, my professor took me aside and told me that I need to participate more in meetings if I want to pass the class. Well, today I did exactly that, probably talked more than anyone else did. This is a big improvement for me. Public speaking has been a big fear of mine for years. I don't know how this happened, I just knew I had to do speak up else I would fail the class and failing a class would be a nightmare. I hope I can keep this up.
