Thanks :) It was at a high school debate tournament that was a pretty big deal on the national circuit. I had lost in the semifinals just the previous year, so the victory was all the sweeter. One of my proudest moments.
I can definitely concur with the happiness that comes from leveling up. We strive to achieve. Right now I'm really glad that my first post has been seen and responded to by thoughtful people somewhere out in the wide world. Also, sex.
