The Day ARC Saved The World
Most of you probably didn’t know it, but on Saturday, the world was nearly annihilated by a ninja named Anwar with an evil plot to destroy the ozone layer. Just thought I’d let you know. But as you probably guessed, the disaster was prevented by none other than a handful of nerds and soon-to-be-nerds with a knack for arguing.
And that’s pretty much what we did on Saturday.
But aside from saving the world, we also had a fun, exhausting, and even educational experience, teachers and students alike. Personally, this was the first debate workshop I’ve attended of my own free will. Two years ago, I was dragged in kicking and screaming. Last year, I managed to stay home, little knowing that somehow I’d end up debating all season long, anyway.
This year, I wound up teaching people who may or may not be in the same position I was in not so long ago. Ironic, no?
I had a good time. Who wouldn’t enjoy eating candy, throwing lego bricks, and talking about killer ninja monkeys?
Well…maybe you shouldn’t answer that question.
