Show’s Over…
When they called my name tonight I didn’t hear it, mostly because I never expected to. I worked until the taxi pulled up to take me to show, and I have often thought it’d be a miracle if I even made it to opening night. So when the microphone mumbled, and my colleagues turned to shout, I was absolutely shocked that the judges picked my portfolio as one of the five winners of the Design Excellence Award at the end of the night. I still am. But after 2 all-nighters and today’s 12 straight hours of interviews, shaking hands, and smiling, all I can do is take off my heels and recede into a coma.
Thank you so much to my friends and family that came out to see the show and offer their support tonight, and all throughout this crazy fight. I could never have crossed the finish line without you. See you on the other side soon.
