I found out on Monday night that I won a free semester at school via an essay contest.

The contest was to write a 500 to 1000 word essay about how the war in Iraq affects Durham, NC. Ten people entered (I'm thinking our students are a little apathetic) and I won.


Free schooling for the semester! I'm taking three classes to get the most out of it. I'll probably hate myself next semester, but it will be cost-free hate.

Just had to share!

way to go girl!!


what are the classes going to be
seftiri: iDoryseftiri on October 25th, 2007 01:11 am (UTC)

In an effort to get the most bang for my buck, I will be taking Anatomy & Physiology I (with lab), Argument-Based Research, and Intro to Sociology (all three required before the nursing classes can begin).

I'm assuming that I can snooze my way through Intro to Soc, that I can partially snooze my way through ABR, but that A&P will be the tough one. However, I've been wrong before.

Oh my goodness! I'm so happy for you! You must feel so exciting and so proud. I'm not surprised though...your essay must have been the best they received. You are in my thoughts and I hope to hear from you soon!

Thank you! I am very excited though I suspect my mother is more excited since she's paying for my schooling. LOL

I am sorry I haven't written back. My week this week has been jam packed since my boss is away. I was planning to get caught up on my emails this weekend. Expect to hear from me then.

Many congratulations. I don't imagine you included one of those hilarious strikethrough-what-you-wish-you-could-say-and-put-in-the-diplomatic-version paragraphs in your essay, but if you did, that's probably why you won the contest!
seftiri: HoneyBeeseftiri on October 25th, 2007 01:33 am (UTC)
Um, no. This particular essay did not lend it self to verbal disembowelment strikethrough goodness but I'll be sure to use that little trick somewhere else in the future. :)

Thanks for the congrats! :D

Thanks! I'm pretty happy about it. For two reasons: 1) It takes the pressure off my mom to pay for next semester since she is recuperating from surgery right now and is not working and 2) because my parents are taking me out to dinner tomorrow to celebrate to a new Local Foods restaurant that I've been dying to try. :)
