Final Thoughts: 

Don't forget that the Australian Rotaract Conference is fast approaching, y'all should buy a ticket

Fun fact: our "inner speech" (the voice inside our head when we read or think) is accompanied by tiny muscular movements in the larynx

Well, that's it from me. Don't forget that our next meeting is on Wednesday, the 8th of September, at the Tresscox Lawyers Offices, starting 6.30pm.

Until next time,
