WORD OF THE DAY: "EERIE"
USED IN A SENTENCE: "It was a dark and eerie, Tuesday night when the ghost was spotted in the boardroom of the YMCA." (it was probably just me looking pale before my speech).
SPEAKING TIP: Vary your hand gestures to help illustrate your talking points.
It's difficult to concentrate on anything before you go up for a speech.
Tuesday was one of those days. I, along with fellow member Terri, both had speeches this past Tuesday and we were quite relieved to see that it was a small crowd consisting of all members and one guest. So small that I made the announcement to remove two of our five tables, they're big tables! Kinda.
Wilson, aka Mr. Quantum Fantasy (which I still don't get), lead us as the Toastmaster of the evening, giving us these cool Hawaiian lays (which I still don't get either).
Ah, but Mr. Quantum Fantasy had a trick up his sleeve. He began by asking us what kind of dream we had. Then lead us in a group conversation about how we can divide up one million dollars. THEN said something the along the lines of, you are forever trapped in the eternal abyss...okay I need to write this stuff down.
It was some kind of eerie remark. (man, I'm on a roll).
To be perfectly honest, when I think of a museum, I often times think of boring old artwork on a wall for people to stare at. Generally, I'm more amazing at the price than I am at the artwork itself.
However, what I learned from Terri and even during table topics session is that each piece of artwork truly does have a story behind it. That story brings out the worth of what people would normally see as just different colors put together.
In general, museums hold a sentimental value that involves a sense of history, a story behind it all that we often times take for granted given how we're always looking for a quick fix of endorphins.
I realized that museums are indeed something to be appreciated by us. I'm looking forward to the next one I get to visit. Take a step back, and learn something new!
What makes a good website?
I like to think of it as an acronym - EAT (Easy, Access to, Information)
It doesn't always need to look amazing, it doesn't need to have fancy gadgets.
