I Went

The self-introduction of “Sprite” in Communication 231 class this morning was a great over-whelming success if I have to say so myself. Since I am unable to sit in a classroom setting due to my medical issues with the environment, the professor decided I should go first, and then she suggested that I sit right outside the door listen to few of my other classmate’s speeches so I could write my three critiques. Oh yea, I get to be the first to break the ice and then sit out in the hall like the bad kid.

Well I held my head up high, handed her my VHSC tape, placed my paper on the podium, and said in a clear voice: “Good morning class, someone had to wake you up and that is going to be me.” That got their attention and all eyes were upon me, I began and told them all about me, my family, and why I decided to come back to college after so many years away from it. When my three minutes were up, I said, “Now that I have broken the ice, and thawed the room, may the rest of you find this as easy as I have.”

What to my surprise, all of a sudden, the room was full of a loud noise of chairs scraping across the floor and hands clapping together. I was getting a standing ovation. I was in shock; I walked back to the professor, handed in my paper, and retrieved my video tape, and walked to my chair that had been set up for me outside the door.

Awww, that is tooo sweet!! See, all the kids now days aren't that bad!!!

Too bad you had to sit in the hall though! But I bet there are times that it could be a good thing!

I commend you on going back to school at your age and with your medical condition! You should be very proud!! I am, and we haven't even know each other that long!!!

Keep up the good work!
