Acadec, and more Lady Gaga

Friday at 8:10 in the morning I left school and embarked upon the most important trip of my life.

Not really. I just went to Dallas for Acadec competition. In case you haven't read my other posts, Acadec is basically a place where you can compete in ten different areas such as: Essay, Language/Lit, Social Sciences, Math, Economics, Art, Music, Speech, Interview, and Super Quiz.

It's pretty daunting seeing as it's just testing for two day straight, but it's extremely fun.

One thing I noticed while being holed up in my "studying" was the Asian and Indian kid ratio to everyone else.

It was like 947703:4. Crazy! Also, surprisingly a lot of those kids are afraid of elevators! No lie.

Yesterday we left before the awards got started and still arrived at 11:30, but I think I learned a valuable lesson in life.

When in doubt, LADY GAGA. In the interview portion of competition I was thoroughly dreading the "who do you look up to" question, and of course I got that question.

At first I freaked out because I didn't want to say the usual Gandhi, Mom, Dad, The President, but I went with my gut and before I knew it I spouted LADY GAGA.

Apparently I did good because I scored a 910/1000. Thank you Lady Gaga.

  3. Congrats on doing so well. Gaga will never let you down. I wish we had Acadec -- I love that kind of nerdy stuff.

    Also, for the record -- the word I have to enter down below is "hamology." The study of ham!? :P
