Just a couple of days ago was the end of a 3 day debate competition, woah. Even the 5 prelimanary rounds took a toll on me D: But it's a good way to strengthen my brain! Haha build some mental muscles.

So there were a lot of stuff that happened. We've learnt so much in the short few days. We were prepared for a formal debate and instead the debate style were quite casual. Some adjudicators we're nice and helpful and some were just plain rude. And it makes me wonder why are these type of people exist in this world. To make people suffer? But anyways I've come to the terms that they are going to be people like that, and you have to deal with it. My dad adviced me that you have to build a thick skin and if you really can't handle them then just walk off because it's not worth your time.

So yes I'm going to whatever it takes to build a thick skin. Sharanya and I are determined to better ourselves in debate no matter what. We're going to start watching CNN HAHA. And we're going to kick some debaters ass.

Debates is all about making your solution better than the opponents. You have to convince the people why is your way better than others. And half of it is making fun of the opponents solution.

And yes my blood is boiling with debate! HAHAH I feel like I want to debate again! It was really fun. Had a fun experience even with the emotional break downs along the way.
