Wishlist // Nevermore

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9

When I was in elementary school, I used to participate in annual Oral Interpretation competitions and my Nana and I would spend months preparing my entry piece each spring. She'd help me select the poem, monologue or novel excerpt I'd present, and we'd get together every day after school to practice in her kitchen. In third grade, we spent hours rehearsing and rehashing every line in Poe's "The Raven" until I had it memorized in it's entirety. I won first place at Regionals that year, the only time I've ever won first place at anything really, and 16 years later I can still recite 95% of that poem from memory. It's one of my all time favorites, and every time I read or hear it I remember how hard my Nana and I worked together to win that award and how much fun we had preparing for those competitions every year.
