I'm alive. Daily routine: it's boring. "You can live anywhere you want." (Beach visions) "Goodnight." "Travel well." "I'm going home, in search of the house by the sea." In the morning it is well with my soul. Where you'll find me now: King of the beach. "You'll find a way." I'm alive.
So today, I went into Daffy expecting to buy a yoga for about $10. When I got there I went directly to the mats, because I had been anticipating getting it all day. When I brought the light blue mat up to the counter to be checked out, I got a surprise. The mat that was once $9.99 rung up to be 2.49! I have no idea what kind of sell they had going on but I was excited. That sell set the tone for the rest of my day, and I have been happy every since.
My first debate
tournament went well. I made it to the semi-finals – a feat deemed unattainable
by someone in their first debate. In this round we were clearly outmatched. The
opposing team had been debating for years and subsequently, their case was much
more solid. After the debate was over my partner and I left the room
immediately, too bummed out to have to stay and listen to the negative
commentary. We had just taken our seats in the auditorium of about a hundred people
when they host of the tournament came through the door, and gave a look of pure
confusion. “Why aren’t you two up there getting ready?!” she said hastily; and
all of a sudden everything changed. Chris and I ran outside the room to let
loose with some giddy screaming and jumping, just long enough for us to compose
ourselves and get back inside to debate.
As I said, the
finals were in an auditorium in front of close to a hundred people. This was a
personal test because public speaking had always been an issue for me. I knew
the results would be close. Unfortunately, I lost the debate by a two to one
vote; however, the skills that I gained that day had a lasting affect as I
eventually went on to succeed at several other prestigious debate tournaments.
