Since Sarah is really the only one who reads this, I’m going to start with the Debate Party (that’s right…. party with a capital P) last night. While not up to Burton 226 standards quite yet, it was very successful! Starting with the fact that more than three people came and everyone stayed for a few hours, we’re definitely making progress. Granted, we have a long way to go until Nats, but the future looks bright. Although I would encourage everyone to think of a new instruction for tens before the next party….
All that actual Debate stuff is going well too. Gabe and Justin are doing a wonderful job of teaching Parli to everyone. And I managed to make it through three practices before anyone realized I actually don’t know much about debate theory/mechanics! So basically everything is right on schedule.
Debate dinner was interrupted last week due to class picnics, but I’m hoping the Class of 1951 meeting room in the back of the LDC will be a lot less empty this Tuesday!
Well, it’s getting late and I need to go read a book called Stigma for my 395, which is, about people who don’t fit in are treated by society. Or something like that, I’m only on page 20. It’s a very interesting book, but the author uses quotes from Ann Landers columns a little too often for me to take it super seriously.
SEE YUH! (I hate myself a little for writing that, but you have to play to the audience a bit, right?)

PS. I think I may have hit my peak with the first post. So if anyone wants to guest post (Sarah, or whoever else is the one viewer a day…) let me know and I’d be happy to give you the password.
