I keep on going back and forth between being super nervous and really excited. My brain can't seem to decide.

There seems to be a lot of states this weekend...good luck to all!

And I think almost everyone gets that feeling, although for me it's more excitement. For builders it could be more nervous.

For me it's definitely more nervous. (I build). The rest of the day I'm really excited, especially if everything went well.

I'm a builder and I tend to panic a lot. So my stomach is basically in a knot for the whole day.

EPIC FAIL for me.. 5th in EV, was really close though.. last in JYC (1 point) cus our water displacement scale had no water so I had to make a spring (rubber band) scale on the spot... Bridge, eff was 399, FAIL. I have 2 more bridges i need to break now, and I have a feeling both will top 500 easily....

Sorry to hear that it went badly. But 5th place still isn't that bad.

Well, it kind of depends on how many teams there are. I agree though.
