I’ve been organising details for my state debating trip lately, and I am getting so nervous. I have no idea why, and it’s still a month away, but I guess it’s because most of the kids there will be from year ten and selective schools, and I haven’t even met my entire team. It’s going to be an awesome experience, and even though the evil adjudicators will be there, I’m sure I’ll have lots of fun. It’s just the lead up to it. I haven’t debated since September, and like I mentioned a second ago, I’ve never debated with the rest of my team. We all live at least two hours away from each of the other members, so it’s not like we’re a Sydney region who live five minutes away from each other and can practice all the time. I’m also going to have my leg in a cast, which will be interesting debating with, I don’t know if I’ll even be able to stand. I really hope they don’t make me be fourth speaker… And what if we don’t even win one of our five (four?) debates? Everyone will just think we’re weird country hicks. That would be beyond embarassing.
It’s at the Women’s college at Sydney Uni though, which should be exciting. I love Sydney Uni and it’s where I want to go when I finish school so to be able to experience it (much like I experienced NSW Uni at state TOMs) will be pretty epic.
I guess I shouldn’t worry about it, I mean, we do get T-Shirts…

ps. I know this is unlikely, but have any of you guys ever debated at the JSDC state finals?
