The exciting adventures of Creative Writing Club!

Today was the first meeting of Creative Writing Club at my school. I was a little nervous going into the room after school because I've never been in a club without any of my friends with me. So I sat in the far back corner of the room. But as the meeting began, I became a little less timid as the meeting got into full swing, and I even ended up reading something I wrote. Actually, If you want to read the story I read out loud, it's on my quizilla! click here to see it. Anyway, so my English teacher is the person who oversees the club, and I submitted that for an assignment in her class, so when I told her I was going to read it, she said "Oh, I'm gonna cry!" because it's kinda sad. And so I read it, and next meeting I think I'm gonna bring my poetry book so I can read some of my poems. 

Peace && Luv, 
Nessa :)

My immense stress over a Public Speaking speech

For Public Speaking class, two classmates and I are leading a panel-forum discussion on Child Abuse. I am the moderator of the discussion, so I have to transition between the different subtopics that we discuss. This puts an intense amount of stress on me, because I have to not only come up with the transitions, but also deliver them effectively. I also have to come up with an introduction and a conclusion. 
However, I feel that this is an honor for me to have the opportunity to lead this discussion, because the other two members of my group are Seniors, and I'm a Sophomore. And even though it's tough, I believe that I have a little bit of natural born leadership in me, and therefore I actually enjoy this distinct opportunity to showcase my leadership abilities. 
So in conclusion, I believe that though this project is causing me stress, I am going to get through it alright, and that it can only benefit me in the future. Therefore I am actually grateful for this. 
Wow, I feel like I just wrote an English paper on how my presentation is affecting me. That's quite interesting. Hmm...... 

Peace && Luv,
