So I just got back from the last Science Olympiad of my High School career. (Throwing some bait out to the internet stalkers here O.o) In any case, here’s the details in a convenient, organized fashion.

First thing’s first: It was epic/awesome/fantastic/everypositiveadjectiveI’mtoolazytolisthererightnow.

Most Important: One of my best friends (as part of a pair with my other very good friend) won a first place medal in an event called Write-it-do-it. We are currently attributing this to the fact that the two people are the same person, which is a force more powerful than telepathy. I’ll let the internet figure that one out for itself. More importantly, this mean he finally got a medal after four years of hard work and he managed to trump out everything I ever did by that being a first place medal. So hooray for you, friend!

Second Most Important: The team that this same friend and I co-led got 13th overall out of about 33ish teams total. This is an amazing feat when you consider that we were the auxiliary team from our school (the primary team got 10th overall) and that we didn’t even enter four events. tl;dr: My team is so awesome it almost outcompeted the main team.

Least of all: I also happened to get two medals, a 3rd place in Designer Genes and a 2nd place in Disease Detectives, as well as a 5th place ribbon in Astronomy. The latter two awards were huge surprises, especially in Disease Detectives where I was actually writing down everything that was missing from my notes so that next year’s team could be more prepared. I knew I did well in Designer Genes. I think my teammate and I did pretty well in Technical Problem Solving too, but we only got 17th there. Ah well, such is life.

Additionally: Apparently the music of the 25th anniversary orchestrated Legend of Zelda CD gives me superpowers. That is all.
