Super Exciting Announcements: Not Boring, I Swear

…well, maybe I don’t swear, but I’ll try to make the announcements as exciting as possible.

I Won a Competition!


I’m not one who’s known for winning things frequently (at least, not when you look at how many contests I enter). I won a riddle competition a few years ago, and about a year ago I won a book from a Book Riot giveaway (they have the best giveaways, right up there with Goodreads‘s). But that’s about it.

Until this week.

On February 20, Words Can’t Fathom announced the Blogoquent Competition. Here was the challenge:

How well can you describe LIFE? Can you describe it in just one sentence?

My entry:

Life is a journey in which nothing is permanent and everything is precious.

And I found out on Thursday that I got first place with eighteen votes. Woohoo!

Here’s my badge of honor:
