End of a sort-of era

Well, I am getting eliminated in LJ Idol tonight. I usually post my entries on Monday evening just a little ways before the deadline, that way I have ample time to write, look over what I've written, reconsider, and then finally post. Unfortunately, tonight was Report Cart Pickup at school. I still would've made it... but then there was an unexpected meeting for the class I sponsor. I didn't even get out of work until after the deadline had passed.

This isn't exactly the way I planned to go out - I'm extremely competitive and am pretty much always in it to win it, so I'll confess to being a bit depressed. LJ Idol has been a fun and wonderful way for me to practice and hone my writing and I'll really miss that. I wish I could say I'll definitely Home Game, but I'm so busy that most of what has been motivating me to stay on track is the deadline (you know, the one I just missed... lol). Still, I may try and keep up just to keep improving my skills.

For those of you I met this year through Idol, it's been a blast. To those of you still in the game, good luck!

LC, why do you ruin all of the good things??

Oh No! You were my choice to win this year.

Wow, thanks! Competition has been stiff this year and I've really enjoyed writing against so many great people, so it sucks to go. But that's the way the cookie crumbles, I guess.

Boooooooo. I hate it when work interferes with things that are actually important.

Right? If I didn't need the paycheck, I would blow this popsicle stand! Messing up my writing competition... *shakes fist*

That really sucks :/ I'm sorry.

Thanks. It does suck! It was tough to meet the deadlines every week, but it was really fun. Oh, well. There's always next year!

I went "Oh noooooooooo" when I saw your name as a bye-out! I'm so sorry work got in the way. <3 Very sad to see you go!
