i'm gonna sound like the one loser here, but...
i just don't enter things lol. i mean... lemme rephrase that. i don't enter BIG things, because i don't want to NOT win. haha. i'm probably not the best person to get this advice from.
those elimination type contests are the worst too. i did last scrapper standing last yr (the effer dare contest) and made it all the way to the very last round... obvs didn't win. each round had me so stressed. and in the end, i felt like i put in so much effort. so i don't enter contests or submit anymore. ya ya, i'm a big quitter. so what?
i pretty much decided that if it wasn't fun, i wasn't going to do it. if it's going to give me stress, i don't do it. (referring to scrapping here, not life in generaL). if you don't try, you'll never know if you might win. but if you don't try, you'll also never lose lolololol.
i suck huh? tricia will ban me now.
