That lovely moment when you realize that OH MYGOD VIOLIN STATES IS THIS SATURDAY and you realize that you also have to study for Nats. Oh, and let's not forget standardized testing, shall we? I'm going to fail the language portion of it... >.<

Paleonaps has been pretty inactive as of late. If you're reading this, naps, are you going to be at nationals with the team?
That was weird. I was just thinking "I really should check Scioly now, I haven't been on in a while".
I know I've been inactive. In all honesty, I feel I have little to offer. I did absolutely no studying this whole year, although I somehow managed to medal in all of my events at Regionals. Because I didn't study, I feel I can't really contribute to either the Wiki or to the event threads. Also, I didn't make the team this year (which may have something to do with my lack of studying) and although I can accept that it is my own fault, it still bummed me out a lot. So that made me less feel like coming on here. Lastly, when I started to check again, I realized how many new members are becoming active, and I realized that the people I used to talk to a lot are either inactive (brobo), absent (Idaho) or promoted beyond recognition (Z and Random). So the field of people is very different now, in a lot of ways, and there's none of the "Let's see what Z's up to right now" impulse or anything because most of the people I'm interested in reconnecting with are gone.
On top of that, junior year sucks. SO MUCH HOMEWORK.
Anyway, I think I'll be back a lot more next year. I think I may start studying again. And to answer your question, yes. I will be in Orlando in a few weeks.

Cool, I will see you in Florida then. I think a reprise of the awkward shoulder-staring-greeting thing is in order.

Definitely. I want to do that. Look for the Asian girl with the large puffy hair, probably going around with a tall Asian guy, a relatively short Asian girl, and a tall Caucasian guy with blond hair. Coincidentally, all four of us are members on this forum.
Online awkward staring thing...commence.

Haha...I did the awkward shoulder-staring-greeting thing with paleonaps last year when I saw him on the street at lunchtime the day before the competition. :D

Story of basically all of our lives, man. And at least you actually get to go to Orlando, though that's a bummer about not making your team this year (seriously though, they do that? We only kick returning members off if they're completely unproductive. Then again, you're going to nationals and we aren't...)

It's especially tough when you have to cut senior(s) due to the 7-senior limit, particularly if those seniors truly deserve a spot on the team. We had to cut a member of last year's national team from this year's team due to the 7-senior limit. It was genuinely heartbreaking to have to tell him.

You were such a creeper that day. I remember you staring at WM's team as they passed us, and eventually ran after them.
