/lit/ write my valedictorian speech for me. It must be 3-5 mins long. Take some time off your Starbucks job and utilize your English degree!

>>3570401 We're all about to enter 'The Real World'. That's what everybody says. But most of us have been in the real world for a long time. But I have something to tell everybody. I've glimpsed our future, and all I can say is... 'Go Back'. Well, it's almost over. We've gone to school together for three years, and we've been through a lot. But with that training out of High School gone, what's going to happen to us? We all know what the answers are. We want to be happy, go to college, own a car, maybe raise a family. But what if that doesn't happen? I have, I have to be honest though, I have all the hope and ambition in the world. But when I think about the future, the truth is, I am really...scared.

I am seated in an office, surrounded by heads and bodies. My posture is consciously congruent to the shape of my hard chair. This is a cold room in University Administration, wood-walled, Remington-hung, double-windowed again the November heat, insulated from Administrative sounds by the reception area outside, at which Uncle Charles, Mr. deLint and I were lately received. I am in here.

Dear Mr. Vernon: We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was that we did wrong. What we did was wrong. But we think you're crazy to make us write this essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us... in the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess, and a criminal. Correct? That's how we saw each other at seven o'clock this morning. We were brainwashed.

>>3570694 Honestly, if you go to 4chan when you need to write a speech you're probably destined to work at something like a coffee shop anyway.

Even though you're smart enough to be Valedictorian, it surprises me that OP doesn't realize there are different time zones, and therefore different Starbucks shifts. Assuming that people who work in Starbucks are actually intelligent.

How many other 80s movies have valedictorian speeches? There's always the one form Gilmore girls too.

Read Larkin's "This Be The Verse." Since OP is valedictorian, and that really matters because after high school people sincerely give a fuck about things like that , he's smart enough to Google it himself.

>>3570729 >There's a reason I was chosen to have this honor... Newsflash: there are plenty of other 18 year old student with high marks in this world, probably even on this board. If you're not willing to actually apply yourself in creative measures as well as filling out some answers on a test and doing extracurricular activities you won't go anywhere in life.

You can achieve everything. That's the motto I've given myself for years. Sometimes I doubt it because we often trip on our failures. However, each time I just stand firmly again. I get wounds, sometimes they are terrible, horrible wounds but as long I can stand again, all I can do is go forward. Nothing stops me and this is why I am here today, standing here. Nothing is due to randomness. It's about you, your determination, your will. And I now cherish this motto. Grab the dream while you can, don't let this cheeky bastard play with you. Catch it, tame it. It's all yours.

>>3570850 I'll add some: And every morning, what do I tell to myself? "Every day, I can only get better and better". The reason why is very simple. Time is ongoing, and if you flow with time, fight with it, so you can only grow big. Of course, you could let time tame you and play with your fate. Well, that's not the deal I've ever wanted. This is why I fought hard. I fought something terrible called "fate". Back then, people were very afraid of "fate". Well I want to prove you all that because of my determination, I beat it and I surpassed it. I'm not a subject of fate anymore simply because I don't want to. Thoughts are only mere promises and this is why you have to fight. Action is where it is. But action without thought is nothing more than crude violence. So this is why I had to rely on my thoughts and on my actions to make something, to build something. Even if someone crushed me, I'll rebuild again, and make my fort stronger and better. Learn from your mistakes if you can't avoid them, and show to the world what are you made of, even if you're shy or whatever. Show your true thoughts, your true self, through action. That's your true value.

It sounds belittling. >Back then, people were very afraid of "fate" The orator who speaks this will sounds very narcissistic; it sounds as though you're saying your audience is neanderthalic >Thoughts are only mere promises and this is why you have to fight This conceit is tenuous, because you haven't explained it. >But action without thought is nothing more than crude violence. Wrong, and also pretentious. Action =/= violence.

>>3570883 Yeah I know it has flaws. I just randomly spout shit but that's the feeling I did get when I worked in a company . Btw the action thing is just an idea I grabbed from some German philosopher. I noticed that people like to hear that, usually.

You can't tell someone to be an honest extrovert if you're simultaneously telling them to shield themselves against others. This speech is hardly didactic.
