Lightbulb On Public Speaking...

Never, ever, ever give a public speech with a suggested time on a topic you are familiar with. I just finished my 8-10 minute speech on ADHD...but it took me 17 minutes. 17 minutes of beautiful speaking, heh. Fortunately, I did a good job, and my teacher wasn't paying attention to the time (he was probably busy writing about how I fidget and walk about too much, heh).

At any rate: topics you know about = talking for much longer than you plan to. I could talk about ADHD for hours and hours and hours if given the opportunity, so I shouldn't have assumed I could do it in 8-10 minutes, heh.
