senior classical league

ok listen up friends it is story time

before i begin i would like to state that this 100% percent true. the sequence of events might be slightly off, because i was out of it for most of this, but otherwise completely true. Ask wolfstarforever, poker-cards, and b-urnie: they were there and are mentioned by name in this post.

so some of you may know that i am a huge latin nerd. if not, you can check out /classics-tag and be easily convinced of this fact. Us latin nerds are actually highly organized: we have this organization called the Junior Classical League (JCL). And each year the JCL has a national convention in which members from across the US and a few Canadian provinces come together for a week in the summer. This past week was my fifth and last convention as JCLer, because next year I will be in the senior classical league. and i had a lot of fun. there are plenty of stories i could tell about the week itself that would be funny and interesting but instead i am going to focus on our journey home, because it ended up WAY more interesting than any of us had bargained for.

Now that we’re getting close to the summer, I thought I would start planning a Tumblr meetup at Nationals at Wake Forest University this summer.

If any of you are planning to go to NJCL, whether you’re a JCLer or an SCLer, please feel free to reblog this post and please message us so we’ll know you’ll be there! I’ll be starting a list of people who will be going. Details about meeting up will, I’m sure, be added as we get closer to the end of July.

We all know Tumblr users are the best, and we all know Latin is the best, so why not? ;D Unfortunately, only one of the three of us (camelopardalis) will be attending.

Please please send littlelatinnerdthings a message if you’re going to be there!
