I know I said I was going on hiatus, but I thought I couldn’t pass this announcement up.

their first info session in CAFE ZUID Ceramique.
Meetings: Alternating Thursday
Permanent Venue t b d

Not sure if I’ll be there (I’ve got the sniffles and find public speaking terrifying). But if you go, do let me know how you like it.

    I did Toastmasters in Seattle for a while. The good part was that it had a lot of good people and forced me to give talks in front of them weekly. This really helps with stage jitters and learning to organize thoughts. The bad part is that it has a competitive aspect, and critiques could be rough. People who’d been in for a long time seemed to adopt a formal, detached style that I didn’t aspire to: I’m not sure if it was a way of distancing from the audience, or too many competitions that made them mechanical.
