Debate Stress

I participated in my school English debate last month and this Thursday is the final round between Form Ones and my class is competing with the BEST class in the whole form. Stressing, isn’t it?

Thing is, I’m so stressed out by this whole debate thing. Our motion is “Co-ed Schools are better than Single-sex Schools”, and I’m the opposition. I’m not kidding.

I mean, come on! Lecturers and high school students have been debating on this topic for two decades! And still they haven’t found an answer to the motion. You’ve got to be kidding me.

So, I searched the entire World Wide Web for the advantages of single-sex schooling. THEN they told me to today that the third speaker doesn’t need to mention any points: you just need to rebutt (I think is spelled this way, I dunno).

So, I switched on my laptop again and began searching for the advantages on CO-ED schools instead. To make matters worse, I’m working with my enemy on the same debate team. Hey, she hated me first, it wasn’t my fault. Well, not entirely.

Well, lets keep our fingers crossed, shall we?

 

p/s: I’ve finished  The Amber Spyglass by Phillip Pullman. Definitely worth a read. I’d give it an 8 over 10.
