So, last week if you remember, I said I was going to a networking event and was feeling a bit anxious.

Yes, I haven’t spoken in front of an audience for a long time. Hence, me feeling nervous.

I anticipated that I would stutter at some point.

What I mean by this, before the event I anticipated I’d feel anxious which would make me forget words or even disrupt my train of thought.
