As of today, there are only 17 days left until Pageant Weekend and I couldn’t be more excited! That’s a little over two weeks to perfect my speeches, routines, and walks…and it’s been busy! Luckily school is out in 3 days then I can give the pageant my full attention once again.
Last month I was sponsored to be a part of the California State Science Fair, which means a paid-for trip to LA! It was a great experience. I got 6th place in my division of Zoology, and I was also able to find a dress for a reasonable price while I was in the area.
In addition, this week is the dreaded finals week, rumored to be the worst week out of the entire high school experience. My free time has been spent gathering parts of my various outfits, and I have found that outlets are a great place to look for dresses, suits, and accessories without spending too much money.
I also had a garage sale a few weekends ago, and ended up raising a lot of money with the support of family and friends donating items for us to sell. I was so happy to be able to donate $100 to the Rohnert Park Animal Shelter with the money raised. (Thanks everyone!) I just finished getting all of my outfits for pageant weekend, and now all that’s left to do is practice, practice, practice!
I’m so excited to be able to spend more time on the pageant every day now that school is coming to an end. Practice makes perfect, and it makes a HUGE difference when public speaking, or preparing for any category of the competition.
I can’t wait to make new friends and watch all of the preparation come together.
