California Part 1

Okay, so mind you that I’ve only been on a plane one other time before this trip but the experience was just as amazing. I’ve also never been on the west coast, touched an ocean and seen palm trees in person. The thing that killed me though was when we started something the weather was like high 60’s and they were wearing winter coats. Like, I don’t understand whatsoever. But, the good thing about about the trip was we had basically a whole day to settle in and then go the whole day. In general the whole day was great, we won as a whole team and took away some tournament champions. Nothing out of the ordinary happened and they had snacks for us before awards and let me tell you….it was life changing.


My Forensics Career stared back in high school and I was an interpreter then and I still am now. There was one time that a did a four minute and it was a good one too! It was on how pinterest was created, when it started and how it has changed crafting and online scrap booking. It was a great speech however, I was just too nervous and it just didn’t do well. Now, as a college student there has been so much growth I can now look back at that event and laugh instead of crying. I’m still trying some speeches without a black book but, I will always have the black book.

Stay Awake When You Have Nothing to Do All Day!!

So, this tournament we are at this weekend is Norton! It’s basically like the fall version of Nationals and it super competitive. The good news is because I made efforts to talk to people I didn’t know last year, I know waaaayyyy mmoooree people this weekend. I mean teams come from all over the place so, this one is a pretty big deal. Note: I also haven’t had a performance yet at this weekend mine is the last one of tonight and tomorrow morning so, I ‘m sitting twiddling my thumbs and drinking caffeine. 3 cups to be exact and that is not a good thing. It’s actually put me more on edge. Pro-tip…….NEVER DO THAT AGAIN. So, socialize, drink caffeine and stay awake so far so good but, I need a nap.
