The Importance of Underwear

*cleans off dust and cobwebs*
^Hello everyone! It has been a long time since I posted an entry in my blog.
Been hell busy... like really really super tired busy.

Was deleting stuff and I found this in my files.
Nostalgic, this is the piece I wrote in my Philippine Public Administration class back in college.
Our professor wanted us to give short speeches on virtually anything we want just so we can practice public speaking.
We had to talk about something in under 3 minutes time, something brief, interesting and will make your audience listen.
Choosing what to talk about was hard, some of my classmates went hardcore and chose topics about politics and government (admittedly I didn't listen to it because I found it boring XDD), some about culture, some about time, some about family, some about games, some about nature and some about Facebook.

I chose underwear because I didn't want anyone to have the same topic as mine and at that time I thought it was a good light choice. hehehhehe

Here it is:

The Importance of Underwear
by Yuu Shomura

Frillies, briefs, spanx, knickers, bras or brassieres, camis, panties, boxers, corsets, thongs, loincloths, pantsu, g-strings, draws, bloomers, undies, unmentionables, tidy whities, undergarments, underclothing. What ever you want to call them, they are all the same. Underwear. 
But what are they really? Underwear or undergarments, as defined by wikipedia, are clothes worn under clothes often next to the skin. They keep outer garments from being soiled by perspiration, urine, semen, feces and other discharges. They also shape the body and provide support for parts of it. Some are intended for erotic effect. And there are special types of under garments that have religious significance. Not only that they are comfortable and durable. 
Now, "What is she talking about?!", you’re probably saying to yourself, “What has underwear got to do with anything?!”, “Should I be on my way to the mall to buy myself a fresh pair of undies? “No one will see it, why bother? “What so important about it anyway?”
I’ll tell you why. Underwear is important because, one, it keeps private parts private. What shouldn’t be seen is kept from the glaring public. 
Two, it can protect us. It provides additional warmth and comfort. It can shield us from the draft that can cause colds and prevents out clothes from being smeared with bodily discharges. 
Three, it shapes and supports the body. What has gone south can return to its original state. What wasn’t there will suddenly be there. Worn properly, it can even give the illusion of having a few pounds off. It can even enhance and better accentuate what ever it is that you’ve got. 
And it can give your ego a much needed boost. Nice underwear gives one confidence. And as we all know, having confidence helps us do more and accomplish more. So what if no one knows if you have on designer undies? You know! That knowledge alone can empower you and make you feel proud! 
Everyone needs nice and fresh underwear. Just think of it this way, one day, you might get run over by a truck, you’ll be rushed to the ER, doctors in their desire to save your life will rip your clothes and will see your holey, crusty unmentionables. What will they think? 
If you want to change, start with the inside. What’s on the inside is just as important as what’s on the outside! Fresh pair, fresh start! So go out, splurge! And get yourself some new underwear! =)

My professor was really happy, he found it hilarious. He said I was the only one who listened and really made it brief. 

It was fun, actually, I have never really had any problem with speaking in front of an audience. I am really happy he liked it, though. Good times, good times *scratches chin to reminisce*

thanks for reading!

    The most important thing to remember is that you can wear all the greatest
    clothes and all the greatest shoes, but you’ve got to have a good spirit
    on the inside. That’s what’s really going to make you look like you’re ready
    to rock the world
