Geek Central

One of my hobbies is to surf the web in search of helpful (mainly educational) websites. Since this is a kind of weird hobby…I never really shared my collection with people, but I realize that a lot of people wish they had links like these. So…here is my list! These are the educational ones. I have another page with clothes/fashion stores online that feature modest clothing.

Enjoy my list and comment with any suggestions!

      • Sort of. I am in Classical Conversations (or was…it’s over for the year now haha!) and they had a debate strand. We used NCFCA model and scoring methods etc., but our tournament was more loosey-goosey and not “certified” as NCFCA. Which league are you in?

      • That’s neat! It’s nice how you can still learn the skills and have fun but you don’t have to be as official about it. I am in STOA. And No, I didn’t make NITOC (nationals). 🙂

      • Yes, I liked it a lot. I miss it, actually 😦 Haha, well I’m sure you did great anyway! I have several friends who have made it in the past…I honestly don’t know how they did it!

      • Agreed. I’m doing the same thing next year…but I don’t think it will be a main focus.
