Today, we had the school spelling bee. To qualify, you need to be one of the top two from your class spelling bee.
I won the school spelling bee last year, only to go on to the Seattle City Spelling Bee and misspell the word schtolen. Which was weird, because it's German, and so am I.
Anyway, ex #1 was also in the school bee, and she's a good speller. I beat her last year when she misspelled squawky. We started with 71 spellers in the bee. The first round was BORINGGGGGGGG.
But there were a lot less in round 2, then round 3, then 4, etc.
Eventually, there's only 4 people left, including me and ex, and then we both misspell our words.
But it's not over there. Only one guy spelled his word right, and he had to spell another one. But he misspelled it, so we all came back in.
Then it was just me and ex left. Over and over again. Till round 14, where I misspell nubuck. (I thought it was Inuit so I spelled it nubuk)
She corrects my mistake and then spells sustenance to win the bee.
She beat me!
But, she said she probably won't go to the Seattle one, in which case me, as second place speller, will go to. If I win that, I go to NATIONALS.
Anyway, I'll be heading to Bainbridge Island tommorow and staying the night, and I shall make or break that Sectionals time.
Even if I break it, I have another chance to make it at the end of the month. Last chance.
I might be gone until Monday.
Ooh, I forgot to say. We had a spaghetti auction hosted by the orchestra (I'm in) today. I did a piano solo.
However, there's one girl that's OBSESSED with me.
She asked to take a picture of me. Apparently she thinks I'm adorable. I don't even know her.
