You knew you were tired of your plain old button-down with its stupid conventional buttons. Well here’s the challenge you’ve been looking for, with more snapping action and more embroidered desert scenes than you could have ever dreamed of.
Last night I competed in a competition called Queen of Queens. I was one of eight girls. I’m probably the most awkward person and least likely to do a beauty pageant. I did this to put myself out there. I had to learn a dance, which thankfully want judged, answer a question randomly selected from a bowl, and perform a talent.
My question was along the lines of “ If you could interview anybody in the world who would you pick and Why?” It was one of the questions I didn’t want and I was last to go out of all eight. I chose @markiplier because I had to think on the spot. I had joked about choosing him while looking through my list of questions, but I didn’t expect to get that question. I explained that it was because despite him being from YouTube he’s raised over a million dollars for charities of all sorts and that I admire him for that.
My answer was one of two to receive immediate applause, which I didn’t expect at all.
Next we had a talent. I planned to sing because I’m a very music oriented person, but I couldn’t get the song down so I wrote a monologue two weeks ago to perform last night. It was posted on Facebook and is currently going towards 500 views and has been compared to a girl who one to overall competition a couple years back.
It was pretty much just about how I’m different, but it’s all right to be different. I’ve come to terms with the fact I’m different. It took a long time.
When I finished it there was silence and then applause I was told. I wouldn’t know. I was so nervous that I could really only hear myself.
I didn’t win a crown or flowers, but I did what I set out to. I got on the stage and put myself out there.
I adored competing and I will always look back on the night fondly.
