My ego is in shatters

Well, I just got back from my school’s prize giving tonight and I won a “Certificate of Merit” in Year 12 Computer Studies.  I was really hoping to get: a prize in Computer Studies, a prize in Information Processing (proceeds TIM), the Ray Cairns Memorial Award for Journalism, or a combination of some.

Now the latter of those three would have made my night, especially considering the amount of journalism I actually do; Wikinews, Practical eCommerce, our school’s failed student newspaper, etc. I know I was in the running for the award because I had been nominated. A few people I talked to prior to the awards ceremony believed I deserved the award.

Last year I won a prize in Text and Information Management (TIM).

A prize means you were best in the class and you get a NZ$20 book voucher (Whitcoulls). In my case, a certificate meant that I was about second or third best out of the two Computer Studies classes.

However, I congratulate all those who achieved higher than myself. And I thank my Computer Studies who noticed the hard work I had been completing in class.

You win some, you lose some.
