It isn't too bad. I have to describe my job while in college, then talk about what I may want to do after college, and then finally talk about my dream profession. 2-3 minutesso I should be fine.I just don't have any interest in giving speeches for class.

At least it's not a bad topic. I hate to give speeches as well though.

I love giving speeches, but I study political sciences, so that's expected.

I hate giving speeches when the topic is shitty.
Other than that, I'm usually pretty good at them.

I don't mind speaking in general. I just don't like it when it is a school assignment because it is usually a boring topic.

Edit: Off to do my speech now.

Only 2-3 minutes? I could bullshit speech my way through that topic for like half an hour. Usually takes me 2-3 minutes just to get going and get into a groove. Least its a decent open ended topic to speak on, good luck

I feel the same way. This one time I had to give a 15minute presentation on financial statistics and long term estimates on a "hypothetical" ice cream company I came up with. Was 15minutes without any real facts, bullshit on top of bullshit, I think at one point I even told a joke involving ice cream. It was pretty terrible, but I got a B+.

Enjoy the crap out of it mate, or at least convince yourself that you'll enjoy the crap outta it... It really helps :P

I'm a child care worker and I often give speeches in front of large groups of parents... Parents are the most judgemental people in the world so I've gotten pretty used to speaking in front of people by now :P

I am not nervous or anything, I just didn't really feel like doing it.

I still think you should have walked up there and said "my name is <name> and im here to rock" at which point you would drop your pants and do the helicopter.
