Two speeches down, one to go!

*insert much celebration here*

Before I gave my informative speech today (on "Why" you have to show your ID to purchase Pseudoephedrine products) I was practicing in an unknown, empty room in the same building my class meets in. I was, literally, reading over my key-word outline and timing myself when I felt something warm trickling from my nose.

Yes. I was so extremely nervous I got gave myself (?) a nose bleed.

Now I don't know all the medical "stuff" behind it, and I assume I was so "nervous" and with all of my "deep breathing" my nasal passages were just very dry and that's how it all happened--maybe? But it happened!

I rushed to find a bathroom and in the matter of seconds it had stopped. But now I was so focused on my nose bleed I really didn't have time to be nervous about the impending speech. Maybe this all worked toward my advantage.

My speech went off without any serious problems. I actually came very close to running over the time limit and left out a pretty important detail. Luckily when I finished the class was so into my speech they wanted to discuss my information and I got to answer questions and give the information I accidentally left out!

I didn't know I would get such a large response. I'm glad I did, apparently I picked a good topic and everyone trusted my information and delivery enough to ask questions (not questioning my information--but questions they personally had about the subject).

*insert more celebration here*

But now the celebration stops because I have to conquer Quadratic Equations tonight. No rest for the weary, right?
