I'm stressed too, but then again, who isn't? Even if you don't get stressed at all, those few moments before they start awards are definitely the most stressful part of the competition. This year, especially for us, since how we'll do is totally unknown. It's that fear of the unknown which is adding stress to me, and a few others on my team.

Nevertheless, good luck to all at state (Except it's a bit early to be saying that, since we still have about two weeks to go)
I totally agree, this year is a complete toss-up. No one really knows how well anyone will do. WCJH will probably do OK, but if we do well enough to go to nats is hard to say.

sorry for barging into this discussion, but i was just curious, how do you guys prepare for nats after state since you guys only have like 1 week in between?
i would think there would not be enough time to modify the building events and study more for the sstudy events.

In recent memory, State has never been this close to Nationals. State standardized testing has messed up with it.

But I would guess that you study for State and you study for Nationals... I don't see why the location of State in this block of studying would affect time. The real challenge is travel accommodations - if we go to Nationals, buying tickets after State would be rather expensive.

I actually think that Easter had more to do with State being moved than standardized testing did, as Easter weekend was the weekend that state normally is.

State is normally the last weekend in April, but they scheduled then TAKS tests for that week so they had to move it to the first weekend in May, I don't think Easter had anything to do with it
