Collegiate Scholarship
« on: May 22, 2006, 02:43:53 AM »
Oooookay... Kind of a Personal Statement type of thing. I wasn't sure where to put this...

Oh yeah, whoo first post. I've lurked for a month, just now posting. Ya'll are going to be hearing a whole lot from me over the next year....

So here's the deal. I'm an undergrad and I'm going to be a senior next year. I am applying for a small memorial scholarship because I've had several professors (and the department head) ask me to.

Easy stuff.

Okay, last sentence of the form "We will also need a seperate page attached telling us about you and why you want or need the scholarship."

What the heck do I write to adequately answer this question?   :-\

Thanks... even if no one answers...

You know you're from the south when...

For Merc:


Your idea of a traffic jam is 10 cars waiting to pass a tractor on the highway near Chipley.
"Vacation" means going to the family reunion.
You've seen all the big bands 10 years after they were popular.
You measure distance in minutes.
You know several people who have hit a deer.
Your school classes were cancelled because of cold.
Your school classes were never cancelled because of heat.
You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.
You think ethanol makes your truck "run a lot better."
Stores don't have shopping carts; they have "buggies".
You see a car running in the parking lot at the store.
with no one in it no matter what time of the year.
You use "fix" as a verb. Example: I am fixing to fix dinner.
All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable, grain, or animal (including pesky insects!).
You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked. (And your car as well!)
You know what "cow tipping" and "snipe hunting" are.
You only own four spices: salt, pepper, ketchup, and Tabasco.
You think everyone from a bigger city has an "Northern accent".
The local papers cover national and international news on one page, but require 6 pages for sports.
You think that the first day of deer season is a national holiday.
You find 90 degrees "a little warm."
You know all four seasons: Almost summer, summer, Still summer, and Christmas.
There is a Dairy Queen in every town with a population of 1,000 or more.
Going to Walmart is a favorite pastime known as "goin' wal-martin" or off to "Wally World."
You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as "good chili weather".
A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola, or pop .. it's a Coke, regardless of brand or flavor.
You recognize that cheese grits and catfish nuggets a meal that must have been bestowed upon the people by the Lord
You can be satisfied with a meal consisting only of a hunk of bread, with flavored flour and water (a delicacy known
as "biscuits n' gravy").

Wow, that's really weird. I feel like I got caught doing something I wasn't supposed to. Now I'm just ashamed.

True story except for the knife bit.  It was a chainsaw actually.

get to bed, you people.

And this is the social scene.

damn this thread

i can't get it out of my unreads

holla at the lair.

wanna luingwing?

Blondie doesn't get it.

Ok, I'm OUT for a while. I've been staring at this board all day. I'll prolly be back in like, 30 min though :)

I had an hour and a half to study, and that time has been wasted watching these posts. I hope you're all happy!


"Yes, I have fed the homeless.  Yes, I saved a baby from drowning at age 15.  Yes, I have a 180 lsat score and a 4.0 gpa, but I think my biggest accomplishment as a human being has to be the fact that I started a thread on LSD that had over 30k replies, and went on aimlessly for over 2000 pages.  For this reason, and this reason alone, I humbly ask your admittance in to Yale Law School."

-Excerpt from Court's PS

from post 1 to post 30k in 3 mos...a superb accomplishment. 

wow this thread moves fast.

and if you need that phone sex.... :D :D :D


DAMMIT!  That's what you wanted?

Leave a freakin message next time!!!!

Speaking of kinky guys are gonna LOVE this!

Last night, after I left you guys, hubby and I watched TV in the living room for a little while.  Finally, we decided to go to bed, and he went in the bedroom while I put some stuff away and straightened up for a minute.  When I joined hubby inthe bedroom....

He was watching a documentary on Great White Sharks!!!!

He didn't understand why I started cracking up laughing.

 :D :D :D :D :D

Did you know that cockmonkeys are allergic to cats?

They are. 

God almighty

I am bloody randy


This was 40k.

i have a cotton swab stuck in my barrel!  >:(

very frustrating...

thanks.  :)
but you know i'm only nice to cover up for my evil.  >:D 


no stan. i just haven't had time to lair it up :(

I should also warn you, I'm in the kind of mood tonight where I might take those stars and shove them so far up your ass you'd be bluer than a smurf.

I have NOT had a good evening.   


The only person on this thread who gets a response to EVERY post she makes is....COURT.

but that's because she spends so much time talking to herself!  :D

well at least when i'm not here.  ;)

Eh, she's slipped a few times herself lately.

Tis OK.  If she gets flustered we'll just mix her a martini or send her Geek With Bear. 

Aliens do exist. They're just waiting for Chuck Norris to die before they attack.

I think I'm worried I'll end up procrastinating here to the detriment of my applications...


she just deleted them all, which is EVEN WORSE!!!

it's like we've got one brain.

should you be scared or should i?

Because its all a figment of my imagination.
No, it's a figment of Court's imagination.  Us included. 
This makes sense. I'm actually a spambot.
I don't actually exist.

you can't lock teh lair

No, no you cannot. 

your body will find some way to turn on you and bite you in the butt.

At the end of the day, isn't this really the moral of the story?

We're all screwed no matter what, so eat whatever you want is what I say.

This thread is dedicated to the World's Best and Most Selfless Hostess, GailyGirl.

I cannot express my gratitude for such a fabulous time in the Lou for the past 5 days.  Gaily welcomed me into her life and spent every spare moment she could making sure I had a wonderful time.  From being a killer wing-girl ( ;) ), to the playoff game, to pimpin' up in Six Flags at 10:00 at night. 

Honestly, I have no idea how to even begin to thank her other than offering her my undying friendship.  I came to this town expecting to make an acquaintance and ended up finding a damn good friend.  She is truly one of the most amazing women that I have ever met and she deserves the best of everything in life.  And I'm not just saying that because she's really hot!

I lurv you, girly!

If you feel the need to feel out an application for this position, then you obviously aren't on my very short *gonna boink ya* list and you are wasting your time in this thread.

Thank you very much for those 15 seconds of your life that you're never going to get back!!

*evil laughter*

....and goodnight.
