Finalist for the 2010 Blogging Scholarship
Hey everyone! I was the first runner-up in the contest, and I just wanted to thank you for all of the support! The voting closes tomorrow (Friday) at noon PST.
Background: A couple of weeks ago, I submitted an essay (no more than 300 words–do you KNOW how hard it was to stay within that word count?!) towards the 2010 Blogging Scholarship, which recognizes students who blog. The first place winner will receive a $10,000 scholarship to help pay for school (I am a JD/MBA candidate, graduating in May!). I would love it if you would consider voting for me as I am one of ten finalists (I am Christine Mielke!). It would be incredible to show the Power of Temptalia! Voting ends November 5th at noon PST!
Though I said it earlier in my last Tartan Tale review video, I really do feel like a winner no matter the outcome of the scholarship. I have the support of so many amazing readers and viewers, and I will still have it tomorrow and the next day. You are why I blog, you are why I strive to do better each day. It’s cliche, corny, and cheesy, undoubtedly, but it’s how I feel. I’m a sap, and you’ve all really made the week for me, because I know you’re here with me. Thank you!! Every time I think about how much support you have all shown me, I get teary eyed and if I’m not careful, I’ll start sobbing!
P.S. — Please be respectful of other finalists — everybody brings something to the table!
