countdown to jdc central: 11 days!

After months of preparation, it’s the final countdown to the most wonderful time of the year – JDC Central time!

It’s funny how different it is being in the final weeks as a captain instead of a competitor this year.  Last year I was a bundle of nerves and was stressing out about what to wear, what to pack, what to expect, how to prepare and a ton of other issues that seemed incredibly pressing and all-important.  This year it’s somehow calmer.  I have a lot more on my plate in terms of responsibilities, but a lot less pressure to perform.  Once we get to the competition, all of the most stressful parts of my role on the team are finished; I’ll have met all my deadlines, done my best to prepare our competitors and my role turns into a supporting role.  Staying awake, making sure my team stays awake and making sure my competitors feel supported are going to be my biggest challenges!

Until then, I’ll be swimming in a sea of last-minute academic practices, costume creation and making sure all the special surprises we have planned for the competition go off without a hitch.  The amount of paper products, fabric and general craft supplies in my living room is astounding, and just looking at what I fondly refer to as the craft pile makes me SO excited for January 20th to kick off the best weekend ever!
