Good evening, class of 2010. Before I commence my speech, I would first like to thank my family, especially my aunt and uncle, who came down from California, and my grandparents, who flew from halfway around the world. I would also like to thank my friends and my academic adjudicators. Without any of you, I would not be where I am today. Thank you, because without your help, I would not have been given this chance to represent the class with a lengthy speech comprised of highly personal anecdotes, a chance I now plan to take full advantage of.
Now, I realize that some of you do not care what I’m about to say, so I invited Nathan Turner up here to enhance this experience with some mood-setting music. Some mood-setting music (music plays in background). It should accommodate your ears so that as you get bored and zone in and out of listening to my speech, all you’ll be able to hear is the soothing sound of the guitar.
Okay, so to start, I show you the beginning of freshman year. (Music). I believe this Rubik’s cube represents our freshman year very well because our freshman year was a puzzle. It wasn’t too long ago when the puzzle of entering high school was presented before you. Most of us were nervous, anxious, or scared, and questions like, “How am I going to fit in?” filled our heads. We became more concerned with what we wore and who we hung out with and less concerned about who has more Pokemon cards.
