30 day forensics challenge

Day 15: What's the weirdest thing you've ever seen someone wear to a tournament?

I remember this one chick in this really skintight, short leopard-print dress, that was odd. Um… my friend Chris has a Batman tie. Oh, and this one guy had a solid white suit. Oh, and there’s this British dude with the coolest tie, it’s purple and it’s got little pegasi, and then little horses with hot air balloons tied to them instead of a basket. It’s really neat.

30 Day Forensics Challenge: Day 19

I had the privilege to compete in the 2014 National tournament. It had been my dream to go to Nats since freshman year, so I was pretty ecstatic.I also learned a lot:

  • Besides prepping for USX, I had to write an Expository for my Supplemental event and memorize a Storytelling for my Consolation event.
  • There was the issue of getting the Extemp tubs to Kansas (we checked them in as bags and they flew with us).
  • Doing 4 rounds from 8 am to 4 pm is extremely draining. 
  • It is possible for a high school to smell like Forensics. 
  • Some assholes like to shout as they practice their Extemp speeches.
  • You are not allowed to take your Extemp notes with you to your round (you toss them out before you leave).
  • Catholic school kids are BOSS at Cards Against Humanity.
  • After you get out of your main event, you give no more shits about anything. Nats becomes even more fun.
  • Extemp Debate is the crack-addicted child of Extemp+Debate.
  • There are a TON of people for Interp finals, and about ½ of that amount for OO, Extemp, and Debate finals.
  • The printer at the hotel is a priceless commodity. The line of people waiting to use it was longer than a line at a women’s restroom.
30 Day Forensics Challenge- Day 6

Day 6: who are you best forensics friends?


On the team? My lovely Rachel who I adore.

People on other teams? Probably my friend named Buddy who is super nice, adorable, and is a Mama Duck like me. We work together to make sure are ducklings are well taken care of and introduce our teams to each other to make sure that we all have friends when we travel.


Brynne (the incomparable), Kaylon (my Parli partner, and according to a waitress at a restaurant my girlfriend), Megan (my adorable Duo partner), and Lena (who’s perfect).

because i have nothing better to do, I’m watching the nationals for forensics and looking through the forensics tag and i found a “forensics 30 day challenge” so i’m bored and i’m going to answer them.

Day three: my most embarrassing moment at a speech tournament.

Oh Jeez, that’s kind of hard, there are a lot!
Okay, so last year, I was wearing a new suit skirt. It was a bit tighter and shorter than usual. I was going into a round for expos so I had my stand, boards and props. I propped open the door with one foot and reached for my boards with the other, then I heard the sound of ripping seams. I had ripped the back of my suit skirt.
It was bad because usually in my prose I would crouch down and turn around, but I had to alter it just before that round. Fortunately it wasn’t too bad, but Ive yet to fix it.
