    What's your idea of a perfect day?

    When I think of what a perfect day is, I think of a quote by Eleanor Roosevelt. "The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience."

    What could you give a 40 minute presentation on with absolutely no preparation?

    I could give a presentation on poverty and how it can affect our lives - homelessness, drugs, prison, etc.
