Yay! There was an art contest thing at my school a few months ago, and you could enter a visual piece(painting, etc...), a written story, or a musical piece. So, since I'm good at drawing horses, etc. I decided I would enter a piece. I have learned a lot from my dad about drawing, and I have come quite a long way since I first started drawing. So, I draw a picture by pencil of a horse head...made the mountains in the background, with the sun and the birds...etc...and I entered it on the due date. I did a good job, I just wasn't expecting much from it...I was thinking maybe I would come in 5th or 4th place...I mean there were entries from middle school to high school! There must be a lot! So, I waited for a few months. And waited...I actually forgot all about it! Until last week, when my teacher gave me a letter from the contest people and it said... "Congratulations!" Name: (my name) Place: 2nd!!!!!!! "Your piece stood out from more than 300 other entries. blah blah blah..." I was soo surprised!!! I didn't expect to come in 2nd place! I'm so happy! I'm going to the awards ceremony next week with some of my family...But my mom has to work...so....she can't go...... But anyway, thanks for reading! I heard that I may get like $100 or more! LOL I am going to save it up and buy some chicken stuff!(that's actually the first thing I thought of when I heard that winners get some money..! lol) It's all you guys' fault!!!
