I went back to college for my second year and noramlly I would avoid the people I had gone to class with. This time, however, I spoke to four people, which was really big for me. One particlar instance I was sitting in the courtyard drawing when I noticed an acquaintance a bit of hesitation then I went over, "hey Sara, how ya doing?". Go me. :banana

Hey that is awesome!!!!!! I have the worst time talking to people in class, especially the first day. My 2nd year of college I decided I would make an effort to say at least one thing in class every day and it was sooooo hard, I think it took me the whole year for me to get to the point where I could say SOMETHING to someone in each class every day. I felt so stupid and idiotic and always felt like I was saying something stupid and pointless. By the time I graduated, I can't say that I could speak up without any anxiety whatsoever but it was a lot easier. For me, it took me a really long time to learn how to speak up in class and talk to people. It still makes me nervous but I know I can do it even if I have a bit of stuttering once in awhile. The stuttering is embarrassing, but for me getting through that is just part of the process. I still stutter when I'm nervous, I hate it.
