My entry is a piece of writing. And I am entering it into this ‘competition’ I guess, because I am procrastinating revising for my geography prelim. Which is, at the time of writing this, tomorrow. I think that pretty much sums up what I want my entry to say. Humans are messy and impulsive, some might even say reckless, but isn’t that what it’s all about? I know other entries might be more profound and beautiful, but mine is truthful. It’s real and straight out of my brain. This writing was not destined for this award, but written so I could get it out of me. At the time I wrote the first words of my entry it was the most important thing in the world to me, and as it continues to grow it becomes more and more so. Somehow I have wound up here. Writing an entry statement for a thought I never thought anyone else would ever read. I would want my title to be “Christmas-light thoughts.” But that isn’t a question, it’s more of a statement. It’s not perfect, nothing is. That’s something you should probably know when delving into my messy writing.
