Whassup my name's Pat. I debate for a small high school school just south of Austin, Texas. Did policy for 2 years (under the guidance of the one and only yao-yao chen), then swicthed to LD because of partner issues. Caught a few bid rounds here and there since then. My coach coached for Colin and Chris' high school once upon a time, so 11/10 I must be good by association, right?
On the dl though, I do nothing with my life but cut cards and my debate style basically hasn't changed since I switched from policy, which is what I like to call "leftist white boy debate" - think super intense policy strats, lots of T, politics, advantage CPs and the basic Ks (cap, security, agamben), plus lots of Heidegger. A LOT OF HEIDEGGER. Basically I'm a Northwestern debater who wants to debate at UT or Trinity because I can't get into/afford Northwestern (debate sugar daddies/mommas - hmu)
I'm a senior now, fifth year of debate (started in 8th grade) just tryna have some fun with debate, catch some bids (Grapevine and Greenhill, anyone?), and get good before college where I get to do it again but out of someone else's pocket. Fun stuff.
I also have a crapload of old posts on Cross-X (same screen name) where I've shared my musings on debate.
