Alissa's answers were all so very abstract, as if she were speaking of 'a skater' not necessarily herself.
Overall, she avoided saying where her skating is on a competitive scale. IMO, she won't be fully revved up for Nationals and most likely won't finish top two---USFS won't want to base Olympic spots on the performance of a 75% skater. Top 5 would be a respectable finish.
I hope she's able to do a good job! Just seeing her on the ice again will be wonderful, but I'm always anxious.
Every time Alissa takes the ice, I am anxious. I'm always expecting a splat on that opening jump. If she gets past that first pass without the splat, I can relax a bit!
