    It Was Kinda Boring...

    I won the girls 9th grade ice fishing contest back in the school. My end result was so good that I would have won even the boys series. That was the first time I took part in an ice fishing contest and also my last time, at least so far.

    I won a lot of writing and hand writing contests in school. I won a raffle in primary school, I won three pizzas. I won 'Best Academic Photograph' in college for someone else with a pic of a bunch of girls reading Cleo lol. But I've never won anything really cool.
