Writing a background guide which mentioned Dewgong, Dragonite, Sparta, and Djibouti. And then realizing that it was a terrible idea, because it undermined our credibility for the first hour or so… No worries, we set them straight rapidly. Serious committee is serious. *sage face*
Staring in disbelief as my pages and committee staff watched a game of cricket being played on their laptops rather than paying attention to debate. Not that that’s a big deal. Our staff was awesome. <3 (No homo).
Being trolled by Kishore, Sravan, Elvin, Yongmin, Omer, Nimesh, and a host of other TJ kids. Also, Spain.
Shaking our heads in disbelief as China attacked working paper 1.2, saying that “This paper shouldn’t be considered, because it’s supported by Italy, who hasn’t spoken at all and is incompetent when it comes to debate and question and answer sessions.” That’s why you didn’t win, China. GG.
Shaking our hears in disbelief as Italy stood up to reply, saying “Yeah, you’re right.” and then sat back down. And proceeded to vote against their own paper. That’s why you didn’t win, Italy. GG.
Announcing my sincerest apologies for the “Momentary lapses in sanity” we tended to experience whenever a TJ kid trolled by saying something particularly idiotic.
Debating both the territorial status of the Arctic and the reform of the UNSC in a serious manner. Passing resolutions on both. Productive committee is productive.
Spending a full 30 minutes debating about who deserves what awards because the competition in our committee was that close. Then not being able to get all the staff and chairs to agree as to 3rd place / 4th place, and resorting to a coin flip. Which Nick and I won. Because we’re good at everything, even luck. We make our own luck.
Winning superlatives for “Best tie,” “Best smile :),” “Best chair - the funny one Connor,” among other things, some of which I can’t really repeat. ><
Laughing as I read the superlative “Most likely to look like Neville Longbottom: The chair with the Mac.” Here’s looking at you, Nick. Congratulations!
Attacking Kishore’s committee with tons of paper balls. Then being forced by Aman to go clean them up. >< Which sucked. But okay.
Witnessing a giant rick-roll on the auditorium’s projector, courtesy of Nick.
Stealing pads of paper from TJMUN because, hey, everybody loves pads of paper, right? I’ve got a good 20 next to my computer now. Love pads of paper. :D
Speaking in front of a packed auditorium, alibet for only a short period of time, to call out the winners of awards. ”Some of these awards may as well have come down to a coin flip; Things were just that competitive.” See what I did there?
And with that, my high school Model U.N. experience comes to a close. Twas a tad anti-climactic, in my opinion. Wish we’d gone to more than three conferences this year. *sigh*
