Tip: Bring plenty of pencils. Or, just have one pencil that everyone knows is yours (But, if you lose it or it breaks, you're screwed)
Trick: Mark all of your items so that you can get them back when others decide to claim them as their own (Christian K. or C. Wilson, 'cause he will say something is his, if someone asks). I have black sharpie marks on all my pencils.
Tip: Always have unhealthy/decent/sweet tasting food to trade with, but keep the ones you want close or
they will be stolen.
Trick: If you have a peelable fruit, put the peals in peoples back packs, its funny when they open their bag and find a bunch of orange peels.
Tip: Don't bring an object that could be turned into a weapon, or everyone will attack you with it until the weapon is gone.
Trick: Sit at the end of the table. This will keep you out of the way of most flying objects. This still probably wouldn't have helped Kt... she was a magnet for anything flying through the air, or Esther, she also is the magnet of this year.
Trick: Don't give ANY item to Will, it WILL turn into a weapon somehow...( It's true, it will.)
Tip: Try not to fall asleep... people will do evil things to you, or laugh at you, and you'll miss part of the lecture......Silly Wesley.
Trick: Keep something in your hand to keep your mind busy, whether it may be a small eraser, play dough, an eraser, a pencil, a pen, a small insignificant toy; or you could always pay attention to the lecture :P
Tip: Try not to get in a fight with Will, Your shins WILL thank you later. :)
Tip: Don't let any of your items out of your sight. . . it will get snatched and magically moved to the other side of the table.
Trick: Keep Your items close, and keep your eyes on Caleb, Will, Kerilynn, and on occasion Benny, AND Wesley.
Tip: Always carry a spare can of Lysol.....It will help you in two ways: (1) Destroys all sicknesses and (2) it will protect you from any unwanted company, but DON'T GIVE IT TO DANIEL OR CHRISTIAN!!!.....you will regret it.
Tip: Keep your arms covered when you are near
Trick: during the 10 minute break, you can get your food into a position closer to the microwave, and then when everyone else goes to get their food from the fridge you can get in line 1st. I've only done this a couple times.
Tip: Try not to mention when your birthday is, 'cause you will get birthday spankings, unless, of course, your birthday is during the summer, like mine is :)
