Hah, ride the nerves? Does that mean ignore them or use them to your advantage?

Because I think I'm one for ignoring them.

Ah.

Well, then again, when I'm in the spotlight like that, I'm usually giving a speech. So using adrenaline wouldn't be fun.

Hah, you hate speeches?
I mean, I'm not all that fond of them, but I don't hate them. And I'm a bit good at them.

well i think i remember you making a 15 minute speech in 8th grade. i usually barely make the minimum time requirement. i dont like getting in front of people my age talking about something i dont care about.

i had no problem teaching math to the geometry kids when dobashi wasnt there. i like math so it wasnt a problem. plus they were younger so i really didnt care.

That was during 8th grade while sick and while talking about something I don't like to talk about; myself.

For the rest of high school, I've been doing quite well.

Really? I didn't think you were in that core.

But yes, I was delerious.

But the story is actually awesome, because everytime Zach brings it up, I get to say that I still managed to beat him by one point.

Also, Zach screwed up enough to get the teacher to yell at him. I stopped just short of that.

You were. I'm pretty sure Michelle was too, although I don't explicitly remember her in humanities.

Hey, I've had more amazing speeches since that one. Like this one in Health, where I got the whole class to laugh. Because it was funny, mind you.

And the time? I think it was just shy of the minimum length.

All I know is that if there was a "most advanced" core, then I was in it.

Yeah, I was in that core. It was a good group. And your speech was very good.

My health speech was on how to get out of giving a speech. I thought it was ironic enough to work.

Weird, my speech was about how not to give a speech.

Essentially the same topic, and yet we came up with it independently...

Speech topics are normally pretty bland. Just interesting enough to help people think of what to say, but never really worthwhile.

Hah, yeah, I chose my topic too.

Although, you're right in that freshman year I had to introduce myself or actually no, they gave us a list of lame topics.

And now to accompany my awesome speeches, I want to become awesome at powerpoint presentations.

Wait was yours on how to do a speech badly or how to cheat your way out of giving a speech, because mine was definintly the latter. Mr. Coons told me he was frightened by my devious methods.

No, it was definitely how not to give a speech. Or in your words, "...how to do a speech badly."

And Mr. Coons said it was funny. Or maybe he didn't. My mental image of Coons has since blended in with Lefor, because to me, they're basically the same person.
