    Hi-er-arch-y

    Darn. I should be used to this though, 11 seed isn’t that far away from a 13 or 15 seed.

    Flight B authletes, how ya doin’?

    a. Tired. Very tired. Brain hurts.
    b. Confused. What does my word mean? Wait. What’s my word?
    c. Confident. The poetry is flowing like word honey. The kids will be buzzing to my poetry. I.got.this.

    I’m not at “c” yet, if that’s what you’re wondering, Matt! (:
