Bitching, whining, complaining, and general negativity

It's the end of the school year and there's going to be some kind of closing ceremony. My teacher asked everyone in the class, but also me and a couple of other students specifically, to give speeches. I agreed, mostly out of empathy, even though I have no interest in giving a speech. I went about starting to write, and then my teacher decided that this speech would be given in juncture with the only other person who volunteered, albeit accidentally. Then I started being given papers from all of my classmates with year review speeches (anywhere from a few lines to a page) written on them. I have now been asked to quote something from each of my classmates in this joint speech. I'm really struggling to figure out how to compile everything into something cohesive. I think I'm going to be awarded a stipend, so there's extra pressure to make this not so terrible that the school regrets the decision to retroactively fund my studies. This is not what I thought I would be doing when I agreed to give a speech.
I'm still a little annoyed that the requirements kept changing on us, but it's over and no one can do anything about it now. The speech went over well. I think people even understood us.
