tournament yesterday!! highlights:
- third place sweeps out of like fifty schools at the largest tournament in my state!!
- took home third place in oratory and first place in poetry!
- the poetry pool was like FIFTY PEOPLE wtf
- in all honesty the whole tourney could've gone better for me but my placings ended up WAY higher than i expected so i guess?? i'm okay w/ it????
- also the two girls who placed above me in oratory are wonderful speakers and wonderful humans and i Love them so i'm good
- the school had two diff campuses and i was double-entered w/ my oratory and poetry rounds in opposite buildings which meant lots of walking / cold / out-of-breath speeching
- best oratory ballot of all time: "you have a similar delivery style to president obama"
