Yesterday was a wonderfully relaxing family day. I sure do appreciate those days, especially since last month was totally nuts. Anyone else have a super crazy February as far as Scouting goes? I’m thankful things have slowed down (so now I can play!)
Today I wound up reviewing what’s happening tomorrow at the Troop meeting. I think we’ve got a good plan in place to help the newer boys advance, and also a plan for the older boys to keep them interested and engaged. Only time will tell, I suppose and getting our Troop back on track can’t happen in one meeting. I am getting pumped to see our new plan in action, though. We may be a small Troop, but we can be an excellent one regardless!
I also started reading and playing with podcasts. Man, it’s really odd to listen to your own voice over and over again as you try to find the right words. I don’t ever seem to be happy with what I’m saying – or even more importantly – HOW I’m saying it. Anyone else go through this? Does it get better?
I know this first test podcast is gonna be rough. I’m not only learning how to talk into a microphone, I’m also learning how to properly organize my thoughts and get them to come out without a bunch of ‘ahhh’s and ‘uhhhh’s. Are there any tips/tricks? Should I write it all out, or just use bulleted notes? Advice is appreciated. I know several of you out there that hopefully peek at this have some experience in this realm – HELP!
