I'm surprised and confused that I'm the first one to do this, but here goes:
I miss nationals. Three years ago (Virginia), I was scared and uncertain about the prospect of a week long convention. Two years ago (Missou), I was the girl who fell in front of testing the first day and spent the rest of the week in a wheelchair (and who won the community service award). And this last year, I was the captain of the cape-wearing Upper Certamen team from Wisconsin.
So. What's you all's favorite convention moment? Obviously each convention has a highlight a day, but if you had to choose just one moment where everything seemed right and you thought, "This is what the JCL is all about. This is why I pay good money to walk around a hot campus and have a (ridiculously early) bedtime. This is it."
For me, there are two: This year, at the last G.A, my scrapbook took 4th place. By the time they hit about 6th place I gave up on winning, so hearing "Wisconsin" was so thrilling. And the other was that downpour in Virginia right before the certamen matches.

Last year at Missou I was the really bad Page from KY that kept handing the slips to the wrong people on stage so they had to get up and walk over to me to get them. lol.

That's why they made that joke at That's Entertainment about the rabbits replacing the Pages.

I fealt like an idiot. lol.
