And I thought I wasn't going to win anything...

Tonight was the reception for the student art show, in which I had one piece on display. Last year I had won first place for a drawing I submitted (which came along with a $250 check!) but this year I didn't expect to win a darn thing. My drawing was placed all the way on the back wall... way out in the boonies of the gallery. So when an art professor called out my name as the winner of an honorable mention award, I was sincerely surprised. I got a $50 check (and a possible sale), and my whole family was there to witness it. My parents, grandmother, brother, sister, sister-in-law, roommate, a lot of my friends... it was so cool.

Afterward my family took me to Olive Garden for my birthday dinner (though my actual birthday isn't until Monday). Yes, the waiters sang to me (embarassing). My family pulls this trick every year, and they get a kick out of seeing my red face each and every time. I just got back into my room a little bit ago, and my roomie and I are going to watch the Little Mermaid just for kicks (and because we're losers). Today was a good day.


aw, that's cool.
