delegates vote in the GA during committee sessions

we arrived a day late due to delays in columbus and newark, NJ but we made it in time for the start of conference. everything went far more smoothly than we expected. some of the chairs of various committees caused our secretariat some trouble (aka UNEP was awful), but we made it through with relatively little drama. all the committees did really well on their resolutions and debates in session; i was extremely impressed with all of the delegates. clothing violations were an issue as usual: skirts were far too short, belly button rings were exposed, boobs were aplenty, sneakers were worn with blue jeans, etc. by the third day, thankfully, most of the delegates were looking appropriate at least. plenty of trips were made to in n’ out burger and panera for the secretariat during lunch breaks while the regular heidelberg delegates crabbed about having to actually walk to get food. wine was drank after the work was done and all were merry, except for when we stayed up far too late and then looked slightly haggard in the morning for conference. we made it through though and it was such an honor to be part of such an amazing simulation.
