Important Global Lessons and my becoming a responsible human being.

A few days ago, I was asked by a teacher in my school to come in and judge the Inter-house debate competition semi finals along with past pupils.

I said yes.

That happened today.

So a short post:

I turned up at school, appropriately dressed and then actually JUDGED two fricking debates as an experienced debater myself. Now to those of you who don’t understand my previous capitalization, let me explain.

My entire life, I’ve never really felt old. Or experienced in any way. Even after I graduated from high school, I still felt as if everyone was just looking at me as they might look at typical teenager who’s kind of irresponsible and such.

So now imagine my delight in being asked to be the judge of a debate competition.

Finally, all my efforts these past few years (before that I didn’t really care about how responsible I appeared) have been rewarded, albeit a little late.

The judging went smoothly (I mean how bad could it go?) and it was fun. And I realised how enormously I missed debating.

What can I say? I first started debating during my second to last year in school and since then, my interest in it has grown uncontrollably.

I miss debating.

Basically, I miss this.

I want to get up on stage and denounce Conformity and Dictatorship and advocate for human rights and such.

Lessons:

1. Your pretty darn straight opinion about a certain issue can get blasted away with just a hint of a new perceptive. Which happened to me. My preconception on one debate topic actually ended up being changed into the opposite.

2. There is nothing I’d like to to do better than to learn about important issues and talk about important issues in public. I know how few people can actually make a difference in this crazy messed up world of ours but still, as long as we have a voice, we should use it.

Accomplishment.
