The finalists from our HP Freshman 15 contest are as follows:
The other advice I would give would basically be agreeing with someone else, but to be fair, I had the idea before seeing their post.
It would be very, very cool to have actual readers doing guest blogging. We wouldn’t restrict that to /just/ English majors, would we?
I am awesome because I don’t look like my picture any more — I was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma at 31 and now, rapidly approaching 33, it is behind me. I am writing a book about my cancer experience and hope to be able to publish it. (The picture is from July ’07.) In regular real life, I am a music teacher in inner-city Phoenix and an advocate for my students — their lives are already harder than mine ever was. While not working, I like to work out (especially with a trainer), play with my neurotic Chug (Chihuahua-Pug mix), dance (with or without my husband LOL), sew with my mother-in-law, play trombone in a community band. I am slowly learning to speak Spanish. Life is good, and I am grateful for it every day.
I need this laptop becaue I am a broke computer science major without a laptop or even a personal PC of my own.
All the finalists will receive a HP eco-friendly messenger bag and the first one to post a comment on here will receive the laptop. Also, two other college beings, Joe Kings and Michael Koan, will receive messenger bags.
They were randomly selected using a random number generator from random.org. We thank everybody for participating and will be awarding a small prize to everybody that participated within the next few days. All the comments submitted about the site (most of which involved the size of our RSS button) have been read and we are working on improvements to make College Being better.
Note from editor: The winner is Jace Roscoe. Jace, you will be receiving an email from us within a few minutes. Congratulations to the other winners. You will still get that awesome laptop bag.
