3rd Novice Figure Tall, 4th Open Figure Tall :) They're actually both last places, but I'm happy and blessed for both of them. Had mini panic attacks while at the venue. 1st was while waiting for my turn during tanning. Sudden thoughts of: "What are you doing here?" "Just go home" pierced thru my head. The 2nd while having my makeup done. There were things I wasn't yet done, and I was mentally freaking out that I won't have time that I teared up a couple of times, the makeup artist had to.pause to give me space (God bless her heart). Thanks so much to @kenlizardo for helping me calm down. Your pep talk before and after my show helped so much, dude. ❤ Thanks also to everyone who cheered. I couldn't hear you, but my sissy said the people in the audience were crazy. 😜 Everyone's well wishes were a huge help, too.
I might've placed last, but I'm still a winner. I was able to get up on stage and show my stuff. I didn't fall on my face! That's an achievement! 😁
Today has taught me that tho I still have a lot to improve (and yes, there's a LOT - my damn butt, for one), I have made good strides as well. Seeing those who had higher places are my inspiration - I've gotten hints at what they've achieved that I can aim for as well.
I'm happy. Very happy. This comp is another push for me to work for more, and I can't wait. #nextplan and #nextgoal comes soon.
But first, treats: had Tokyo Tokyo sriracha beef ramen, gyoza, and choco PB banana Belgian waffle awhile ago. Then a bit of rest.
Next week, the Ripped Manila Girl blazes thru again.
