I look forward to giving this next one. And getting it dine, hopefully with less anxiety than the intro speech.

After all of the interesting intro speeches, I am looking forward to seeing all of the topics that my class comes up with. Keeping in the time limit will be hard, but I hope I am able to be less nervous than our first speech.

I'm excited about it! One of my talents is cooking. Most likely I'll be preparing a meal for the class.

I am glad that we can do a demonstration and entertain at the same time. Now I have a few ideas that can be fun. I can be serious later but this puts me at ease and I begin working my project this weekend until February 27th. My speech is February 28th. Thank you for the clarification.

After my intro speech I'm hoping to do well on the demonstration. Thnx for this post it has really helped me prepare better this time around. I have a great recipe to share. My only concern is controlling my nerves!

Even thought this speech is simple and isnt as complex as the speeches to come I am still finding it hard to find something to demonstrate that is out of the box (that is just the type of person I am). I want to find something interesting that I also like but is not something typical that everyone has thought of.

With all the first time jitters out of the way I am ready to do this speech. It is going to be exciting to see how many talents come out of this speech.
