Club contests for table topics and international speech are over.
Was the back to back 1st runner up. I would have felt happier if I ended up as a back to back champion, but really, this was more than I expected. I'm just happy that the horror I thought would happen, like completely forgetting my speech or having a mental block right in the middle of my table topics speech didn't actually happen. Besides, they said the club will be sending 2 representatives for each category on the area contest which means, I'm in. Feeling ko mas masaya if naron si Jay or at least anyone who can join trainings with me, pero OK narin siguro. Lahat naman ng training, kahit ung kami lang nila gabby, naging masaya naman.
I had my video taken when I delivered my international speech piece. Although hindi ko naman talaga naisip na magaling ako, pero hindi ko pa rin akalain na my delivery was this bad. Mukhang marami raming bigas pa ang kakainin ko. I texted Jer and asked some tips on adding humor in my speech because he was able to deliver a very funny bsp1. Glad that he was very helpful and sent me a really long list of tips and a few references. Moral lesson: People are more than willing to help, you just have to ask.
Hindi naman ako nagbago from the last contest I joined. Aim high parin ang drama ko. Laging go for the gold. But more than that, I aim to learn as much as I can, meet as many people as I can and collect as many happy memories as I can out of this experience. Pag nagawa ko yun, para narin akong naging champion.
After the meeting last Fri, mentor told me sabay na daw kami uwi. Gabby was sick so mentor needed to commute his way home. You know what, every time I count my blessings, I always count this guy as one. And gabby too. I'm just so happy I have a mentor and an amazing one at that.
The past few days had been dark. But I guess, here ends the dark clouds and hopefully, clearer skies are ahead.
