This Lazy Sunday comes to you… on a Monday. I specifically waited an extra day so that I could post the results of the blog scholarship – voting for which ended at 3am Eastern time, this morning.
Congratulations to Kim Klein, the grand prize winner! She’ll have a nice $10,000 to help her get her law degree!
I didn’t make grand prize, or runner-up, but thanks to all of you, I did make the Top 10, which means I’ll be receiving a nice $100! Hey, don’t knock that $100 – that’s two textbooks I don’t have to pay for!
A lot of people have come to me about the “unfairness” of awarding a scholarship, especially one of this size, based on an internet poll. I don’t want to sound in any way like an ungracious loser, but I tend to agree. I hope that if College Scholarships.org offers this again next year, they will reconsider the award process.
In other Lazy Sunday news…
REPORTER magazine has their new site up and running, so if any of you are interested in reading the article I was interviewed for, you can now access it online. The article is the cover story from the September 14th issue (PDF), and it starts on page 9 of the PDF file. Sorry – there are no pictures of me! Just an interview on why I had to drop out of school, how I managed to go back, and some advice for my fellow college students.
There is one error in the article – it says that I got a job in web design to pay the bills. This isn’t entirely accurate, but since it’s really hard to explain what I do for my job, I let it slide. Suffice to say, I work “on the internets.”
