I finally got my entries back from the State Fair – I moved before the fair ended, so I didn’t get my stuff back until this week. Now that it’s all in one place, I think I can say I did, um, hm, pretty well!
It’s a little weird coming right out there and tooting your own horn… I’m not sure what it is about our culture that says we should apologize when we do well at something. I’m as insecure as the next person, and always a little terrified as coming off as a snob or a show-off or anything else, because what I love is out in public in my hands all the time for all to see. So I’m fighting hesitation, but I think this time I am going to set it aside and celebrate a little. Because dang it…. I done did good.

I’m completely bushed from schoolwork and trying to stay on top of life, so that’s all I’ve got for today. I’ll go back to being helpful tomorrow, but for today I’ll leave it at… yay me!
