Tomorrow is the first practice of the season for forensics. I honestly can’t wait for the meets. They are always fun unless you don’t power or you messed up your piece. I am planning on doing special events with Morgan. Last year Morgan and I did the News Reporting together.
We decided that the news was too much work because we had to write a new piece every week. So then we decided to do a category that was fun, but not hard to make up a piece for. We do have to try and memorize our piece, but I don’t think it will be that difficult. We will practice at the school every Tuesday from 2:30 until 4:30. My mom thinks that it is too much work, but I think it is all worth it in the end.
I feel like it has helped me a little, but I still don’t like to talk in front of people that I know. When I got used to speaking in front of people I got more comfortable talking in front of people, but I was still nervous to talk in front of people I know. I hope that this year will help me become better at speaking in front of my friend, family, and classmates. My brother said that I will have to speak in the front of the class in front of everyone in high school so I want to improve my speaking.
Forensics is fun to participate in and it can benefit you. I think that if you don’t like to talk to the class you should join forensics and if you feel that you don’t like it, then you can drop out but I think that everyone should give it a chance. It is a good way to spend all of your extra time.
