Tomorrow is my last Toastmasters' meeting before the summer break. It's been a hectic year, all told. I completed my Competent Communicator certification, which means that I finished the ten speeches in the first speech manual they give.
There are umpteen other speech manuals I can choose from for my ascension through the Toastmaster certifications. The next level will require another ten speeches. Since it was such a busy year I was planning on waiting to start down that path once the meetings resume in the fall.
But today I pulled myself up with my bootstraps and prepared the first speech for that next level and will present it tomorrow.
