rather funny story at state (oops i forgot how to do hide)
I just finished my A+P test, and am talking to the MS team about the test. Then, I realize that my events started 3 minutes ago, and it's a 5 min walk from here. I run of the room, sprint uphill, with my dad right with me.
Luckily, the test for Hovercraft still hadn't started (and didn't start for the next 5 minutes :/) so all was well.
My partner and I finish our test, and head on over to the testing center. However, I realize that my next event starts in 15 minutes, and I have to get everything ready and test with a queue already forming. I hastily assemble my hovercraft, add my masses, and wait in line (i asked people if I could go before them but it seemed everyone had an event at 11 so rip). Then, I set up my hovercraft on the track, and start the motors.
It wouldn't move.
Now it's like 11 and my hovercraft picks this time to not go forward (it went all the other times I tested). I'm sitting there, thinking, "Wow, I'm so screwed." I try 4 times, and yet it still fails (for those of you who don't do hovercraft, you get 5 failed runs, and then you're done). Finally, on my last try, with 2 minutes remaining on the clock, I decided to modify it. With basically no time to spare, I run it.
It works! But, with the time being 8 minutes after 11, I tell my partner to pack it up, give my backpack to my dad except for my ref sheet, and sprint all the way across the campus for my next event. I'm out there, sprinting more than I did in the past year, coated in sweat. And then, finally, with my breath ragged and me dying for water, I run in.
The event started at 11:10 .-.
