Monday of Convention was enjoyable and relatively relaxed for me. I enjoyed being back in an opening General Assembly with the obligatory safety lecture and highlights of the Code of Conduct. I also had the privilege of attending my first Sponsors and Chaperones meeting, at which I learned the proper procedures necessary to send kids home “at their parents’ expense.” The food has been okay so far, and there are a lot of friends here that I didn’t realize were coming. There has been a healthy dose of high school drama, but what would convention be without it? Being able to work on random SCL (Senior Classical League, the club for Latin geeks who don’t move on after high school) stuff has been a nice break from the drama. And I even got to sleep relatively early last night (don’t ask relative to what).
