March just ended last week. Spring break ended yesterday. 2 months until the school ends and 2.5 months until Jakarta!
2 days before Spring break, I competed in SkillsUSA state of Utah competition up in Salt Lake City. It was super fun! The only reason why I join the club is because I really want to get busy and I had no idea if this club is all about competing.
So there was I, competing on a Pin Design competition with another school of Utah. I represent Timpanogos High School with another 6 students. I designed a pin and crossed my finger, didn't expect anything because I always lost in any competitions back in Indonesia. And I heard that they judged this pin design competition by the way we present it, not only because of the design. No hope, Tas....
And I got 2nd on state. I was like.................................wow.
Kind of cool!!! Never won anything at home and now I win something!! I wanna tell my family back home that *finally* I win something :))) *katro joget joget kegirangan *disangka gila *deportasi
Here's some of photos that I took (Mostly my face, yes, I apologize for that..)

What's important for me is... I met a lot of wonderful students that I never knew, I met Sami, Cody, Camile and Claire from Timpanogos, and Kitzia and Javier from Mountain View, and a bunch of Lehi and Orem High guys that were super funny! And especially Tasha (Yes, we do have same name) from Kearns High that took me to a pet shop because she wanted to show me what Ferret is! ("YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT FERRET IS? LET ME SHOW YOU TODAY!")
|This is Ferret, kind of "American" animal that Tasha showed me.|
Thank you for Ms Thomas that encouraged me to be in this competition, it might be weird that I feel so happy but this competition just made my
day exchange year even more memorable! :)
