You know, I learned something this week. I learned that no matter how hard I try, I can't do anything. I have no true power of my own, nor do I have anything at all that I can contribute to this community. Only with the power of God can I do anything meaningful. In fact, if it wasn't for His power, I would either be a jerk or a dead man. I have not earned a single thing that I have in my life. Everything that I have was given to me. The only true gift that I have is that I am blessed with the things and the life that I have. The sole purpose of my existence is to observe, remember, and think.
I would have voted for Orin XD's shot had I not entered. Due to what I said above, I will never enter this contest ever again. That is an eternal promise, and nothing will ever change my mind. Nothing at all. Entering this contest is my second big mistake on this site. Submitting loose tiles is my first big mistake.
Nolornbon, the fact that people don't for your shot is not an attack on you. As odd as it sounds, you must embrace failure and not run away from it as you are doing. I'm glad you were in SOTW--it already shows you had enough courage to put your own work out for others to judge. But one should never expect to be praised when something's being judged. If you really want something- ike a SOTW victory you have to work for it and expect to fall short. It's the only way you get better. Quitting doesn't accomplish anything. (And if you ask me, you shouldn't rely on God to carry you through, either, but that's a whole different topic.)
Do you see what I mean? I say stick with it, even though you claim you've shut yourself from this competition for good.
