Guys, I can't even TALK about this contest yet without crying. I actually can't believe it's real. My mom called to tell me about it & I had to hang up on her cause I was losing my grasp on language.
Seeing the Earth from space has been my biggest dream for as long as I can remember. I never thought it would actually be possible until now. Guys, I HAVE TO WIN THIS CONTEST OR I WILL EXPLODE. I might explode even if I do win, but at least it will happen in space and my body can be rocketed out toward the sun. That would RULE.
I adore space. I read everything I can. It's most of what I think about.
For fun, FOR FUN, I listen to electro-magnetic recordings of the planets. I joy-cried for 5 minutes after I saw Jupiter through a telescope -- in front of strangers. It was embarrassing! It was worth it!
PLEASE LET ME CRY ALL OVER SPACE!!!!!!! It would mean everything to me. PLEASE vote for me. Nothing in my life has ever felt this important.
