I'm a quiet introvert. Practising one-minute impromptu speech is way better than Toastmasters

2022.01.23 08:44 PodrickPayn3 I'm a quiet introvert. Practising one-minute impromptu speech is way better than Toastmasters

I'm so happy about my progress in the past 6 months, I wanna share my experience here:
I'm a quiet introvert raised by parents with this extreme negativity towards me. It's always not enough, and I actually believed I'll amount to nothing. I've always been a lonely and quiet kid growing up and find it frustrating to interact with others. Not that I'm weird or something, I'm super nice and get along with people. I'm just quiet. In class even if I had a great answer, before I raise my hand, my body would tremor due to the anxiety, and before I noticed, the prof called someone else. Guess who's been asked "Hey why are you so quiet?" in EVERY SINGLE group project?
The downside of it shows even more when I entered the workspace, which seems to be built for extroverts. Talking to people in the workplace eats away like 80% of my energy.
Despite all these, I've always been trying things to improve my social skills, be more confident, be more comfortable speaking in front of people. Books, workshops, coaches, etc. Not to become an extrovert, but to function better in society as an introvert.
I tried Toastmasters and liked the experience. I've experienced a lot of growth there. However, there are three things I don't like about Toastmasters.

  1. Low ROI of my time. If I decide to deliver a speech, I'd carve out a lot of time to prepare for it; if I'm not going to deliver a speech, my air time at the event is just a couple of minutes.
  2. Skills less applicable in real life. In life and at work, I need to use way more small talk and quick thinking than Tony Robbins-style motivational public speaking.
  3. Archaic formalities. How many of you say "meeting is adjourned" in real life?
After getting some advice, I started to do short (mostly one-minute impromptu speaking practise) impromptu speaking practises.
Here's why I think this is great:
I don't like the typical Toastmaster-style dry prompts ("Who do you look up to? ", "When was the last time you tried something new?"). I tried some groups and resources that provide more interesting prompts. Some of them have really interesting and thought-provoking ones. If you are the quiet brainy type, you'd love these:
I find myself way more confident making small talks and now can quickly come up with things to say. Sometimes I can sense that I'm "coming up with things to say while I'm talking", which is impossible before. In the past, if I haven't thought something through, I would just stay silent. I wouldn't say I'm a smooth talker now, but I see the payoff after this past six months.
So yeah, find some interesting prompts (like in AskReddit) and practise every day. You can do just 5 minutes a day, record yourself and see where you can improve. Or try these one-minute impromptu speaking events/groups and practise with others (IMO practising with a group is way better than practising by yourself because of the community support and live feedback you get). But however you do it, consistency is key. You will be surprised how much you've progressed.
If you are interested in some groups I've tried, I can share them with you. Just don't want to put the link here.
Ok, I'm done sharing. Hope this helps!

2022.01.23 08:44 calania [Question] Hour hand stopping on my Certina ds8 moonphase but minute hand still showing right time

Hello! I have a 5 year old quartz, Certina ds8 moonphase but have sadly had a few problems with it the last few months. Every so often the hour hand seems to get stuck and showing the wrong time. I have never seen is being stuck but have noticed that the time is wrong when I look at it. The weird thing is that it is only the hour hand that stops and the minute hand always shows the right time. For example if I look at my watch now it currently says that it is 05:02 when in reality it is 11:02. I have looked through the manual but can't find any mention of a timezone feature. I have had the battery checked and there is still charge in it. Does anybody know what might be happening? I thought that the hour and minute hand would be connected so that if one were to stop the other one would also stop. Any ideas what might be happening?

2022.01.23 08:44 JocastaT Venting/ranting?

OK, so I notice a lot of posts like "ready for fruiting" and "why won't my cake pin"?
I have a bin that had been in fruiting conditions for a week today and despite loads of hyphal knots/primordia having been present for 4 days, I still have no pins.
Now, I am NOT suggesting there is anything wrong with my grow. Its looking beautiful. Surface conditions look exactly as they should. And more primordia seems to be cropping up every day.
But I am NOT a patient person and I'd gotten it into my head that this morning would be THE morning.
So, I figured I'd be a whiny little bitch and cry to you all. Waaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh!
Feel free to use this space to let of some steam grom your own impatience and/or frustrations! Go! Lol

2022.01.23 08:44 greyamericano Mostly Anxious but also Relieved About my Last Week of Internship

so tomorrow marks the start of my last week at an internship that I had to put my notice in just two weeks into the job (will only have stayed a month) and i'm a little relieved but mostly full of worry and anxiety.
i know i left way earlier than i should but it was taking a huge toll on my mental health, i'm trying to write my college thesis at the same time, and the work was overwhelming for me since i didn't have any prior knowledge and it's not really something i'm interested in. i kinda knew it wasn't my thing but i wanted to give it a go and gain some new experience and well...my mental health hasn't been the best so this really kicked me off the edge and i had so many crying breakdowns, couldn't eat, had no energy, gastric issues came back etc.
i feel mostly guilty that my colleagues had to train and introduce me to the job and give me some tasks and now because i'm leaving so soon, i messed up the internship plan and they have to reallocate the work. the guilt eats at me so bad. and i'm also rushing to complete the tasks that are due this week and to do my best at them and it's driving my anxiety up the roof because i don't want to do a terrible job and leave them with subpar work.
i recognize that beyond this, there are bigger mental health issues at play and i should probably seek professional help and i hope i can do that!
but sigh, i'm just plagued with so much work anxiety and stress right now :/ would love to hear any stories on coping with a job that you didn't particularly like or enjoy or any tips on how to keep myself going this week because i don't want to have another breakdown.

How do I get the night mode I keep seeing in screenshots? The most I can get is a darkish grey, which is not what I want at all. I can't find any help online for this and people I know who have it say it was like that by default, so no help there. See below how I have the interface on Dark Color and it's as dark as it can be!

2022.01.23 08:44 focus_beat Devs explain why Axis is mostly defense, pls.

Offense is rare for Axis. On Normandy even less due to the nature of the campaign.
They could have easily picked a campaign like the Ardennes offensive but it's getting boring and one sided.
In my community where people are mostly Axis mains, we get like 70-80% defense matches.
I always wondered if it's due to political reasons or because the dev is Russian but it's no coincidence that all four campaigns are that way.
u/Evgeniy_aka_Keofox , can you explain why the devs have chosen these campaigns and even within them have put Axis primarily in defense?
I've played allies on Moscow and Normandy for quite a while to get a feel for their stuff and offense is so much more easier and chill. Even with a Panther camping on the hill. Smoke and GG.

2022.01.23 08:44 BudLightyear00 33/M/UK looking for a UK/US chat buddy!

Hello out there!
I’ve met a few awesome people on this before and I thought I’d post again to see if anyone would like to speak on a daily basis? The quick responders out there will definitely get bonus points ha!
I’d like to speak to a lady again some more bonus points will be added if you’re American, I know this is random however I love travelling to the States and since it looks like International travel will be banned for a while, it would be good to speak to someone from there ha! Although the UK would be awesome also as there would be no time difference ha.
A little bit about me you ask? Well I currently work the 9 to 5 lifestyle currently from home so the joys are getting to wake up late and spend the day in shorts while watching tv. Erm I also enjoy travelling, walking and photography. Now and then maybe play a video game while enjoying the occasional beer or two! I’m sure there is more but I’m terrible at speaking about myself!
Hopefully hear from you soon but until then stay safe out there!
