[extract][/extract]WE WON!!! And I won best speaker!!!!! Also I was only 4 points away from a perfect score!!!!!!!!!! AND IT WAS MY FIRST DEBATE!!!!!
:( :D :D :D :D :D :D
The judge said that our team was the best he's seen so far, and he was completely shocked that it was my first debate and that I am a sophomore. The other team has had like... six debates so far this season? My team is replacing the previous affirmative team, because they were on a pretty bad losing streak and we beat them out for the spot.
Also, my cousin came out of his operation sometime yesterday. He's been asleep for most of yesterday and this morning, but he woke up a little while ago and we Skype'd with him while he's in the hospital. He's had most of his tubes removed, except for one that kind of goes over the top of his head. He'll get that removed and patched up sometime soon. It's so amazing to think that they've opened up the top of his head and tinkered with his brain. Modern medicine is crazy. Anyways, he cried! Which is great! Because recently he has had difficulty showing emotions, and to see him crying reassured all my doubts. And he is so cute, guys!!!! I have to put a picture of him on here sometime soon.
Today was altogether a very good day >.<
And thank you to all the guys who wished me luck yesterday! I really appreciate it! :D
