Working Hard for a Win

I have been busy since my last post and have entered many contests. Unfortunately, I have already lost some of them. However, I have highlighted a few that I’m still in the running for and are somewhat unusual. I’ve done this because I think it is obvious why I’d like to go to Paris or win beauty products, but not so obvious why I’d like to win the highlighted items below:

I am a writer, editor, artist, and traveller. You will probably find me drinking tea, typing on a keyboard, and listening to music at 3 a.m. Otherwise, I'm entering contests, winning cool experiences that lure me out of my hermetic existence and into the sun.
