Probably not all of you know me, but I used to be really really active on this website. Towards the end of my period of activity, I made a ridiculous amount of commitments that I flaked out on. I want to apologize to anyone inconvenienced by this.

Life happens, and I have a lot going on between high school / college, formal debate, and my job. I want to try integrate myself back on this site, but I can't really commit to anything long term at the moment because I'm ridiculously busy. During my down time, going on DDO isn't really the first thing on my mind because I have so little time to spend with my friends and boyfriend of eight months.

I want to start debating and judging debates again, so if any of you are interested in debating... please let me know. I'll try stick to the current public forum topic so that my time on DDO will assist me with formal debate.

I've gotten quite a few messages and it was hard to sift through them all, so if you want to contact me, please PM me again.

I'm excited to hopefully start being more active on DDO again!

I don't think an apology was quite necessary.

Of course it was! Having a life outside of DDO is absolutely unacceptable. A moral abomination, really.

Welcome back, though the apology wasn't necessary. By not necessary, I mean there was nothing to apologize for.

Idk, Who you are (except that you used to be president) but I accept your apology.
Oh and welcome back.

Welcome back debatability :) How are you liking college?

I'm still a highschool student, I just take a lot of college classes. I don't think that classifies as the real college experience although I do get to live on campus over the summer and take courses and what not. I love what I've seen so far.

I can definitely use DDO debate to my advantage through debating topics that pop up in formal debate, but I'm not pushing myself to do anything other than that.
