My Table Topic: "Loving"

Improved version: Hard for me to relate, because although every parents intended to raise their children that way, I didn't feel it, that love. My parents are not divorced, but I grew up learning that emotion, being loving, is pricey. It interferes with your decision making. But as I grew up, I learnt that this is not always necessarily the case. And that being loving actually helps in improving my relationship with people. (There were a lot of pauses, that's why I managed to reach a minute)

Improvement from the previous: I managed to slow down and actually think of something to say (although I did freeze out for a few seconds) instead of rushing through my speech and rambling aimlessly.

For future improvement: Have a conclusion.

Others today: Roger's First IceBreaker project, Putu's project: Bringing Jobs Back to U.S., Farah's storytelling project: Ginger Bread Man. Melvin's Table Topic Master: Character traits.

How to make a measure out of something that is not a constant? If it is stretchable or sufficiently spacious to allow penis to penetrate through, it doesn't have to break and bleed, and remarked that a woman is still a virgin. Medical professionals have known these for many centuries, but the myths are still prevalent in the societies. Why are these facts not highly publicized? Because it is being used to surpress women i…
