Hot or Rain I’m Still Here

Hot or rain it does not matter. When a woman needs to practice her speech, no weather could stop her! Lol It was quite sunny here in Southern California around noon yesterday. It must have been in the hundredth of Fahrenheit Degrees...I walked down from my cool and comfortable office to an almost like a hot and burning oven in the parking lot. I looked around for shaded areas, not many insight though. Some people stayed inside their cars under the shades, so I looked for other shades because I didn’t want to disturb them. There I was standing between two parked cars under a small shade with a notebook in one hand and a cellular phone on the other to practice a speech I’m about to deliver

I’m officially a Toastmaster Member

I’m happy and grateful for joining Toastmaster again last night. I was a devoted member who showed up every Sunday afternoon for two consecutive years in 2010-2012.

Visiting Toastmaster International Club

After work yesterday, my coworker, Kit and I attended a Toastmaster International Club located just a few miles from our company. I’m happy and thankful for her companionship! It was a two-hour meeting, but the time seemed to pass quickly regardless how tired I felt due to lack of sleep. I love the structure of this club which seems very organized.
