I struggled to find a subject for the speech contest, but eventually found one. An inspirational speech based on my university experiences: No man is an island. In the absence of other competitors, P stood up to challenge me, and delivered a lacklustre impromptu speech. The judges voted it the winner, to the amazement of almost everyone present. The day could only get better after that. It did. Today wasn't bad either, especially seeing as the bank said for two of my meals today: lunch and dinner.
