The day of the speech contest.

Tonight was the night of the ABP speech competition, and I presented a fully memorised version of the speech I only completed on Monday and rewrote on Tuesday. Well, I didn't rewrite all too much. I merged paragraphs three and four (or four and five if you count the introduction as the first paragraph) and wholly rewrote the conclusion.Collapse )

So how did I do? Well, I think the fact I'm through to the semi-finals says it all. Though maybe there is more.Collapse )

Anyway, I'm quite pleased with myself. Along with the speech competition, I was PRODUCTIVE today. Really. I'm not joking. Don't faint there. I feel like I've actually achieved something and made progress, which is ... a remarkable feeling in my procrastinatory life. Still haven't subjugated the entire world with a fearsome army of penguins, though.

Oh, and by the way, if you are ever driving through a hilly area and have The Unforgettable Fire CD handy, put it on ... LOUD. Mum and I did that on the drive home and it was bliss. Especially when my mother turned Pride up incredibly loud. That song begs to resonate out from the hilltops, over the valleys. In the naaaaame of love!
