Book Awards

I was at the National Book Awards yesterday, although if you want the whole story, it's better if you visit Dean's blog, since they were the main reason I was there and congratulations to them, who won the book award for best comic.

Of course it's also strange to be there, since I'm not part of the people involved in Siglo: Freedom. I'm like what a stalker really is... a shadow in someone else's glory. But still, I don't regret being there. As I said, it's my first time being present at the book awards, and it was interesting to see some familiar faces, even if I did arrive there as a tag-along to people more worthy and talented than me (at least at this point in time).

On a side note, it's strange and funny to see that the Book Awards are far from perfect. Horrible Powerpoint presentations, people hitting various objects, the place literally collapsing (not just the walls but the lights as well). Reminds me that no matter how big an event, it's the micromanagement in the long run that still matters, whether you're a small org, a school event, or the Manila International Book Fair.
