It’s Over and Gone with the Wind….

May 8, 2011 at 8:55 am 2 comments

My informative speech was a disaster and after listening to everyone else speak I knew it was going to be an even larger  failure than what I had  imagined. I couldn’t top any of those speeches.

Everyone’s speeches were amazing and possessed a part of them! (To their reason for the speech or just their personality that shined through in the details). I think that thought alone may have made me  a little nervous.

Talking about Gone With the Wind  was my first idea for a speech but it wasn’t what I had planned to give my speech on. I had planned on a speech about a band. I had imagined the entire speech, planned the visual aid… but the day I started on this my computer had crashed and it was my computer that had all my info and tools I needed to make that speech.

So I had my first idea, my ‘backup’ speech, and that was what I had ‘presented’ to Ms. Basford.

And you know the rest…

Maybe my speech was a failure because I felt like I could have done better, but I can’t worry about that. It’s over and now I can only hope my next idea for a speech won’t be ruined (fingers crossed).

    Sabrina, I can’t believe you thought your speech was a failure, it definitely wasn’t!! You did a good job especially if you were going to do it on something else. I think even when people do a great job, they always feel they could have done better.

    Sabrina, I think you were too hard on yourself. I love that movie and you told me things about it that I did’t know. That makes your informative speech a success! I especially liked how you told us the personal reasons why you liked the move so much.
