You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You’re on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
– Dr. Seuss

I did my first speech in class Wednesday, which was our reading. I read ‘The Night Before Christmas,’ which is a book that means something to me. I wanted to read this book particularly because I love Christmas, who doesn’t, and my mom used to read it to my siblings and I when we were younger.

It was interesting to me, because there was such a variety of readings. Some read books, some read songs, and some even read things that were a little more personal to them. What it comes down to, I think everyone did a great job (:
