Last week I was approached on my real life birthday to be given the BAOC award. I thought it was a mistake, since I still have the mentality I had when I got here, that I’m not really an artist.
But we are all artists. Even those of us who say they aren’t. Its a matter of discovery I think within yourself to find that creativity.
That being said, I’m honored to have been given the award, but I agree with Myra, it takes away from all of us being amazing.
So instead I like to think of it this way – the Big Avatar on Campus award is a way for fellow students to say, I see what you’re doing and I appreciate your work. Its not a matter of I’m better than you, or you are better than me. Its more of a virtual hug to pass on.
And this week, I’d like to hug Myra.
She doesn’t like awards per se that single out ppl I think and I agree. However, she cares so much for the music program here and has discovered in herself a love of photography like myself, that we both came to realize because of Medici.
So this week’s BAOC I’m giving to the beautiful, loving, creative, kind hearted soul that is Myra Wildmist. <3 u sweetie.
