To update you all who actually care, I basically got nowhere near the top 8 of the NACLO invitational round (they’re taking a maximum of 8 people to the international competition this summer), which is exactly what I was expecting so I don’t feel disappointed at all. Basically, it was a “nice try, but no fish” kind of thing.

Gotta congratulate Nic and Antal though. So close! So close!

I learned about that during US History like half an hour after the email was sent– while I was supposed to be studying for tomorrow’s test for which I am consequently screwed.

Then after school today, I rehearsed for Ping for an hour and a half with decreasing average productivity due to increasing average exhaustion, and then while I was walking to the Commons she called and told me her lesson time was moved an hour earlier, so I had to eat a really quick (but yummy!) dinner at CTB, supplanted by a cookie from Autumn Leaves (me to the cashier: “Sorry I can’t stay, but I would like my cookie please!”), after which we went to the lesson to get ripped apart by the formidable Kirsten– although fortunately I got to leave early because I had my own lesson to go to at 7, which went surprisingly well considering I was basically running on an empty tank and I had practiced my Chopin scherzo a grand total of three days during the past week, which seems to be all the practice I need to play at a “college level,” which is a mild comfort, except not really.

Yes friends, my day was essentially one long run-on sentence. And now I get to do an hour and a half’s worth of calculus homework, and study for US– or maybe I’ll do that during Physics tomorrow– except I’m doing kind of badly in Physics so I really shouldn’t– and you know, I might’ve had German homework but you can never be sure. Gaaaaah.

(Props to you if you understood this at all.)

    If it makes you feel better, you did better than me.

    Don’t worry, we can wallow in the depths of anonymity together.

    Heh, neither did I. But I’ll be training students for it next year, and they can be my vengeance! >8]

    That’s the spirit, turning your disappointment into ambition… Thanks for dropping by!
