presentations are fine if you're prepared for them. I enjoy giving presentations as long as the topic is interesting. One thing about giving presentations, if you're gonna tell a joke, make sure you nail it. If a joke goes wrong and no one laughs, man good luck recovering.

I have problems with the phone thing too. But since I have to do it for work, I'm getting better at it. But I tend to rehearse stuff in my head a few times before calling. Most likely a stall tactic

i also hate saying my own name
dude, me too. we're like the same person. I don't like saying other peoples names either. it just feels awkward for some reason. like to describe someone I'll be like "oh you know John? he.." but when I'm talking to John I will go through all the greetings I can to get his attention not his name.

Wow, you can lump me in here too. I hate saying my own name, just doesnt come off right. I swear to God I've been called out on not addressing people by name.

Ive always wondered how debate team works. is there a crowd? I would have done that years ago if not for the fact that I hate everyone on the debate team.
Well, when you are debating, unless its the finals or semis, its just your and your partner, your opponents, and the judges. However, I used to be a very good debator( )and got into the semis and finals quite a bit () , and when that happens, debators who have been eliminated earlier usually enter the room to watch, learn, and to practice flowing.
