I thought the bus breaking down was really funny! :lol: Although it would have been worse if I had gotten back at 4... And his username is hemi382.

And just a clarification, we got 9th both overall and in the event. I thought that was an interesting coincidence.

worst thing ever was at states this year having the scrambler egg braek before the run for no reason-it just broke no clue why--that pushed us from 3rd place to 5th place :( :cry:

3rd to 5th isn't that bad though, it just really affect the individuals' medals, which stinks. That wouldn't rank on mine if that happened to me though. Maybe that's because I've had much worse Scioly things happen to me. :roll:

Best for me was.. Well, in general, just making all of these friends and just having CRAPLOADS of fun xD
But about SO, it was probably getting my first, and so far, only, medal. 3rd place for Crave the Wave at Regionals :D
Doesn't sound so impressive, but it makes me happy ._.

The worst for me was not being able to go to Nationals, even though that's resonable and I understand that if we could bring more people, I'd probably be able to go. Still, I feel as though I'm missing out ._.
I guess I'll feel even worse when everybody comes back from Augusta, and we won't have SO anymore :[
Because SO is my life now, and it would be so BORING if we didn't need to do it anymore until next year. And still, it wouldn't be the same, because next year, all of the awesome nineth graders will be in the high school D:

I think I sound depressed now. But I'm not :P
Ask anyone from Gelinas. They'll tell you that I'm ALWAYS happy. Seriously o.o

Best: Hotel
Worst: Hotel.

Just kidding. Although I really enjoyed the hotel breakfast. :roll:

Best: Getting two second place medals at states (:D) and getting 1st at regionals. Also getting second place for Road Scholar, something I didn't know I was doing until 10 minutes before the competition. My partner learned he was doing it 5 minutes before the competition. :lol:

Worst: When I had 3 events in a row, one on the top floor of the building (1 trip of the staircase) the next on the bottom floor (2 trips of the staircase) and the last on the top floor of the building... again. (3 trips.) Then I had to walk back down. four trips total. And all of them were heavy-writing events. :cry:
Hello! :]
