UB Policy debate team has somehow managed to set itself up to go to the Texas swing tournament. Jeff and I will officially be representing the good ol' UB. Katie and I haggled/listened to stupid jokes/smiled and nodded our way through SA administrators and maneuvered ourselves two seats on an airplane bound for Dallas. (Its the top dot on the map:::I thought the map might help everybody out and really visualize it for y'all)
Unfortunately we need to miraculously come up with a binder with a random assortment of highly important activities that we have done throughout the semester. They actually froze our budget because we didn't provide them with some picture book of debate doings. This must be the epitome of insanity. It's not like anyone really is going to look at all the hundreds of binders odd clubs at UB have given them. Or they shouldn't. Some real prioritizing needs to be done if they are actually paying someone to do that.
This seriously is going to be a surreal step for us. Our debate team actually on a plane. That should certainly prove interesting. I can't wait to see how I'm going to check in the debate tubs at the airport. That's going to be ridiculous. I can't wait.
The plane leaves at 9:50 on January second and even has a bonus layover for an hour and a half in Chicago. This is very agreeable to me because I think Chicago's airport is strange and I like wandering around it. Maybe we can take crazy pictures of us there. Jeff might not be so pro, but I'm sure I could convince him. We will definitely need pictures though. Hey -- we could even put them in the f***ing SA binder for next semester.
