DQ'd for time, I am going to go commit barista suicide and have a McCaffe

Oh man, I cannot even begin to say how heartbroken I am right now. yeah it was only my second competition, but holy hell 16:23? I am going to go get plastered and hopefully make it to the end tomorrow without crying. At least I know that in that time I fucking nailed my performance, it was everything I wanted to say and I feel the coffee rocked. My shots were coming out so good.
