Today was OMG Becky’s Academic Recognition Breakfast at her school for students with a GPA of 3.5 or higher. Well, they called it a breakfast, but they really only offered us a glazed doughnut after the ceremony. Thanks, but no thanks.
The ceremony itself was nice. They had the school board in attendance and called the kids up in groups of twenty. Those present received “a certificate suitable for framing.” (That line made OMG Becky and I giggle!) Then the kids walked down the line shaking the hands of the board before crossing to wait in a line to receive applause. OMG Becky didn’t enjoy any of it. She hates being the center of attention.
And she certainly didn’t enjoy me taking as many pictures of it as I did. Party pooper.
Are you comfortable in front of a large crowd? I wasn’t for a long time, but my previous job had me speaking to groups of 50-400 several times a month. I quickly got over my public speaking fear!
