Okay, so I had been anxious for a while now. Yep, as anxious as the other people who have joined the Animax LaMB Blogging contest.
Finally, after a long wait for all of us. A winner had finally been chosen. Unfortunately, it wasn’t me. I didn’t won the laptop, the PSP nor the prize for the third place of the competition. Still, I manage to win a consolation prize! That’s still a big deal for me.
I have, as I have said before, never been a fan of joining contests since I am afraid of losing or being made fun of. However, as the years went by, I lost that fear and every time I remember that, I couldn’t help but laugh and feel stupid. So many times I could have joined a contest. So many times I could have lost but there could have been a lot more times that I have won.
I know that now, that’s why I never miss an opportunity to join any kind of contest (as long as I can manage to do what was being asked in the competition) that I could. Not for the prize or the title, sure I would want them too, but also for the experience.
Last month I was among the few who won another contest from Animax. I won the Simple Plan competition. It was the first time that I ever won anything at all. I was so thrilled that I couldn’t help but laugh and feel giddy especially when the time came when the prize was actually delivered to our doorstep. I always wanted an autographed merchandise of that band, and now I got one. Not only their autograph but their poster, their newest album coupled with their DVD, and a shirt. For some it would seem like a no-biggie, but it was for me.
Even now, I am giddy that I have won albeit only a consolation prize. Still, how many people actually has an Animax goodybag? I could imagine not too much. I don’t even know any of my friends having them. That’s good enough for me, lol.
I won’t be dettered by not winning this competition which involves writing. I won’t stop joining just because of a couple of set backs. Animax can bet that I will join yet again, and again, and again for as long as I am allowed and for as long as I could.
