About a half an hour ago I came back from an award's ceremony for the Demske Writing Contest at our school. I got second place for a mini-short story I wrote [$30 prize!]. It suprising, because the only reason I entered the contest was because it was an assignment for English class. [Flipping through the magazine that goes with the awards-- plus those who sucked too much to win but still had good pieces-- there were a lot of people from my class in there, hah.]
S won traditional poetry for her poem "The Ballad of K-Fed" which I think it fantastic because it rose above all those trying-to-be-unique angsty emo poems that hardly qualify as original or unique. All those poems try to be something they aren't, and something purely witty and humorous beat them. I don't know... does anyon else see the beauty in that?
Today was my Andy Warhol presentation. So yes, I dressed in blazer and tie and sunglasses and a beret to hide my hair [with my bands combed all to one side with the rest pulled back] and acted like Andy. I was really nervous, which actually heightened my character, hah. My english teacher told a classmate "I'm not sure if she was just doing good character or was really nervous." But anyway, it went smoothly.
I'll be uploading the video sometime.
