Gavel Projects

Hahaha oh no i’ve spent wayyy to long stuck on project 5 (of the 10 toastmasters project) coz of a series of events that just happened to prevent me from going to gavel for weeks ;( i need to hunker down and write something. (this doesn’t count). i’ve some ideas but i’m always reviewing them! in the words of our chairperson with a bit of my own drama and paraphrasing where my memory fails:

“Let’s make our speeches interesting! No more speeches on examinations or commodification or procrastination (an especially-common topic that strikes us when we are in its throes). Challenge ourselves.”

Here are my ideas so far :) as related to the topic as possible:

Project 6 – vocal variety: there are 2 types of people in this world (??? i need to research this hahaha i just thought this could be pretty humourous/entertaining)

Project 7  – research your topic: can we create superheroes?

Project 8 – visual aids (we have to speak with slides): every world press photo winner from 1955-2011, taken from http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjs538/every-world-press-photo-winner-from-1955-2011. i haven’t begun crafting my speech so maybe i’m worrying prematurely but i think this may be my most challenging speech yet. the powerful images mean there’s so much -too much!- to convey and i’m afraid i won’t do it justice.

Project 9 – persuade with power

Project 10 – inspire your audience

“in case of nothing to do…”

sometimes it takes an absurd thing to remind us that there’s never nothing to do (at least, not till this extent)

…unless we want to do nothing, in which case!
