Life Update No3: Winning State and Spring Break

On February 28, my school's German club competed at the Texas State German Contest after winning first place at Houstonfest. It was my first time competing at a contest so I was very nervous at first. I participated in the contemporary music event (I played the guitar) and a level 2 prose reading event. Both events placed first at regionals. 

A weekend with my friends at the state competition was a lot of fun! Although, for the most part of the trip, we were all freezing our butts off. It was so cold in San Marcos. But at the end of the contest, my school placed first place out of all the schools that participated. I also placed first in my prose piece, and my band placed first as well. I was so proud of myself for achieving something that I actually worked hard on. I really didn't expect that I was going to win. Anyway, I thank my German teacher for encouraging me and pushing me out of my comfort zone. Also for my friends for being supportive.

The week after the German contest was the longest week of school! I was expecting it to be so easy because it was the last week of school before spring break... But no. I had tests everyday. It was not fun at all. But last Wednesday, I finally picked up my graduation cap and gown. It made me realize that senior year is coming to an end pretty soon. I can't believe that I'm finally graduating high school in less than 3 months!

So today is my second day of spring break. I am not going anywhere special this year. This week, I'm going to be slowly packing my bedroom into boxes since we're moving to our new house by the end of the month! 

How are you spending your spring break?
