Wellness Check in: Where am I?

Pronouns NA, yet she/they.

*Currently I'm studying esoteric and exoteric astrology and curriculum development. I work within the Special Education department of a middle school in Fresno, California. I'm into tarot/oracle cards, shrugs. 90s AOL aesthetic and MOOD BOARDS. I have been feeling more and more inclined to wanting to start a family, perhaps that factors into my perspective of community development in debate*

for the week of 9/9/2021, I am recovering from a left retinal detachment. (Ask me about it, I love to share my experience and probably will boost your speakers, lol..jk, but am eye?)

edit as of 10/08/2021: I underwent a second surgery on the same eye, this time to remove the gel fluid in my eye and had 7 days of bedrest, my recovery is going well.cool

With that being said, my Paradigm: "If you want to get my ballot, this what you gotta understand." - tune of Spice Girls.

I like great argumentation. I'm great with clarity even if it comes with speed. I like problem solvers.

Debaters who like running politics D/A's and counterplans. My background with policy debate is a 50/50 split in argumentation style, I like running 5 off and I like running critiques about that, I like ALLLLLLLL argumentation/persuasion styles. I like it ALL.

Nine times out of ten, I vote for who runs/develops their argument/style better because I want to see YOUR skills grow, that's the portability. But also, in a high staked round based on your framing, I want to see you really go for winning the impact.

TIE Breaker DEBATES WHERE ENERGETICALLY WE ARE ALL CONFUSED ABOUT WHAT EACH TEAM IS TRYING TO WIN....If I am left with deciphering all the way down to the T who's argument I'd prioritize for my ballot because framework has been thrown away, my knowledge and thought process will take into consideration who better developed a consistent argument by the end of the round (repetitive but yea). I just want to be persuaded for something. Except advocating for - racist, transphobic, rape, addiction/disease actions, etc.*

I am more than eager to email, my insights on where I believe you can improve. Just LMK.

Have fun! Crack Jokes. We all deserve to laugh lots at ourselves, at each other and with each other too. C*VID has been very hard on us all.

If for any reason you have more questions, persistently ask me before and after rounds. Kanye West most recent album was phenomenal btdubbs!
