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.

This years convention at IU was my first (home state!) And my favorite part was That's Entertainment with Mario. I also enjoyed the rush of being part of the goodie bag making process. Our line tied the bags together before we put the programs in so we had to put them together. And I suggest going to YouTube, they've got videos from nationals.

Yeah... I set up an NJCL group on youtube (it's creatively entitled NJCL)...if you've got anything to post, that would be amazing.
