hey! i'm a student and i've been obsessively scrolling through your blog (which is great, btw), so i thought maybe you'd be the best person to talk to about my issues with class participation. i've recently been participating more and more in class these days, but insecurity still holds me back from saying something, and when i do, it doesn't go as well as i planned. do you have any advice that might squash this?
Try to set goals for yourself each day, week, month. Just keep trying. You can do it!
