I'm running a brand NEW competition!
Write a short entry entitled "This Year Will Be" talking about your plans for 2012 and you could be in with a chance of winning... something. I haven't quite decided on the prize yet, but trust me it'll be awesome!
When writing, think funny, interesting, insightful and HONEST!
Just to give you a few ideas, here's my entry!
This Year Will Be...
Amazing! It's probably not sensible to get this excited about 2012 because then it'll be a big dissapointment, but I'll throw caution to the wind this time, and just say it.
2012 will be amazing.
Well it's nothing to do with being my "big GCSE year", I'll tell you that for nothing! I plan on scraping As in my GCSEs and not giving a toss. My studies basically don't feature in this year at all- after all, 2012 is only what I remember of it. And who's ever going to care about the tests I did when I was 16, once I'm at sixthform or older? No one.
Here's what I'll remember about this year.
I'll remember the bass beat in my ribcage as I dance at gigs, having 365 days of joy and 365 crazy nights, and losing track of all those days and nights as they fold into one.
I'll remember the strange and new discoveries I'm making, enjoying my new-found freedom, making new friends and pulling allnighters, getting my first real articles published, the mishaps at my first job and crying during my first abortion.
Okay the last one's a joke! But all the gigs, the life decisions, the friendships? That's what this year will be.
So now you've seen my entry, get writing! Send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Oh and Comment Question of the Day: What do you think the Not All About Boys fans should be called? I've struggled to come up with a catchy name for you guys, so I'm handing it over to you!
