How have I grown/changed? I have by becoming more on task, and prioritizing. I also learned more about technology, and have become a pretty decent public speaker. I really changed my outlook on peoples work, and I sort of view it with...A mature eye.
I am most proud of the time I got voted up for best debater...The debates itself were awesome, but standing in front of your peers, being judged...It's just exhilarating.
The most challenging project was the Thematic Causes. With such a short deadline, and a required long running time, it generated a LOT of stress.
My favorite would have to be the the Lincoln/Douglas debates. Just WRITING what you should say was a blast. Pacing the table, snapping my fingers, and coming up with an idea that crushes the opponents?! AH, good times, good times.
My hopes for second semester would be for me to stop procrastinating. I also wish that the DLC can do more debates, or even court cases! I hope to develop more of a keen eye for projects, and visualizing what I want to do.
