Also Rans

"... made the rest feel second best, and even if they were." "Being told we're also rans, does not make us Joseph fan." Tonight was Greek Sing. I haven't written in a while and maybe that is because of rehersals. Probably not, but there were sure a lot of them. We worked really hard and I think we had a damn respectable show. I was in it for once. I've avoided being in the show or even working on sets or crew for the past 3 years so I thought it would be time to act. And it's funny because Joseph was also the last show I acted in, 6 1/2 years ago. I had a lot of fun being Benjamin. Singing, dancing, and getting beat up by Alex and his precious golden cup, which I apparently stole. I think our set came out really nice. I only hope the painting in Booth will look as good as those backdrops we had. Oh, and we got 2nd place. What I hate is people who whine about how important winning is. WHO CARES! Apparently a lot of people who aren't me. I don't know what to say to people from other organizations who claim that the judging wasn't fair, but judging for all things, like college admissions, is mostly random in my opinion. I don't think I've ever been in a competition where I've liked the outcome and a lot of the time I'm talking about stuff other than my organization.

All I've got to say is BOOTH! Well, actually I'm pretty worried. Someone observed that in booth the judge are very reliable about judging based on their criteria, which we don't usually fit into. But in that case I really do disagree with their criteria. I think what we do is much better and more important than the types of things they give points to, and so I have never wished to place over loving what we did, but then again we get the kind of validation that we don't get in Greek Sing. Anyways, this year we are building a booth that is much more in with the way they are judged. I'm not sure if I like that because we are leaving out both what we are good at, and what I enjoy most about booth. Now not only will it be garaunteeded to be less rewarding for me, but if we don't place I'm afraid I'll have nothing.
