The senior class voted a few weeks ago for awards for members of our class. My friend Tom got “Most Artistic,” Krissy got “Best Hair,” and so on, without much surprise. I was expecting to get “Most Musical,” if I were to get any award at all. So, when student council members interrupted our class to give out awards, and I didn’t get anything, I was actually somewhat depressed for a moment.
Then, about ten minutes later, they came back with two other awards–one being mine, and another for Ross. I couldn’t believe what I had gotten: “Most Likely to Succeed.” I didn’t expect that one at all. I was definitely expecting someone–anyone–else to get that one. I mean, I don’t even know what I’m going to do for sure in the future.
Who knows what will happen? The class hit the nail on the head with most of the other students, maybe I’m just to hard on myself. I could see myself being successful. Heck, I think that’s sort of one of my goals, although loosely defined.
Either that, or they didn’t know who to vote for, and for some reason a majority just happened to vote for me. I like those chances. I still can’t believe I’ve been put up in the ranks with Jamie, the female recipient of the award. If you would have told me about this anytime before this year, I definitely wouldn’t have believed you. Ever.
Oh, and by the way, Eric got “Most Musical” for males. I’m glad it went to him. It was rather decidedly between us two for choices. Congratulations!
