A nice little picture of a little piece of pie. You like pie don’t you. I can tell. Because you’re reading a story about pie!!!

Early in life, as a college freshman, I took a communications course.

Introduction to Public Speaking.

I remember this class exactly. I didn’t fear public speaking the way I do now. I saw speaking as a skill you could hone and cultivate.

I wanted to get good at it.

I write to think and organize my ideas. I like psychology, philosophy, and self-improvement—em dashes are my specialty. Not an expert.*
