Happy Holidays All!!

Wow, so a lot has gone down since my last journal, so lets start off with... I'm out of classes for the next two weeks!(we start back up Jan. 8th) and I'm already being told to go out on errands and to clean my room.(a mess I did not make!! Not to mention I already know my friends are gonna want me to go out with them and frankly I haven;t had time to enjoy being out of school... Especially with the Holidays. I do want to spend time with people I haven't been seeing, especially family... but I also want to play games that I've been wanting too, draw and surf the web and such...

Well out of the rant and into the actually stories of the journal. Last week for one of my other classes finals, there was the "On the Spot" Competition at my school and I was one of the 5 finalist to compete.

The competition had a prior competition where every week a theme is given, which you have to design a image of sorts, for 5 weeks and then at the end of those 5 weeks, a score is tallied and the 5 finalist with the highest score go at it at a major competition called "On the Spot"

I manage to make it to the final rounds, with just one entry from the 5 week set, and then I went up against what was supposed to be 4 other competitors in a 2 round competition of a time of 20 mins each to design the theme given to us.

Round 1 "When Little Things Mean a Lot" (I know I spelled "A lot" wrong...)
20 min. I scored 4/5 points


Round 2 "As Time Goes By" (May have quote that wrong)
20 min. I'm not sure what I scored, but I tied and then went into a Lightning Round


Lightning Round "Like a feather in the Wind"
10 min.


And after that nerve recking event, I won. =P I happy but I sure do wish the other competitors showed. I won a small plastic trophy saying Awesome Job and I think First Prize, a T-shirt from the school only it's large enough to be PJ's =P and a New Bamboo Blue Wacom, may use it or give to my sis.

The Miss G3 competition finally ended and I won 2nd place, Miss Dayton won altogether and I'm super happy she won and that Miss Greece got 3rd! Congrats yall! =P My prizes are:
-3 month subscription to Deviantart
-30$ Prize Money
-Full color Bust of Runner up with a dozen roses. Winner gets to choose if she is wearing her National Costume, swimsuit or evening wear in portrait!
