I look forward to some great discussions and I appreciate insights

What a Great Site and Great People I have met. It really means a lot to me and changed my life for the better. If you are new here please stick around and give it a chance.

I consider Cnet to be a place I can talk with friends.

I wish I could say I return votes but the new system doesn’t permit that…

What I can guarantee is if you take the time to converse with me and write thoughtfully, I will most assuredly vote for you…

My Name is Eric and I am an aspiring social worker…

I have my associates in business administration
Exactly one year away from my bachelor’s in psychology
One year and a few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I have a 4.0 in all the courses I have taken over the last two years or so…

I am very happy go lucky when I can be and want to emphasize my humorous side…

If you have any questions feel free to ask me here or my email ericvictorvelez@gmail.com...

I cannot claim to have all the answers; in fact I am probably more confused and lost about life...

Once you think you are happy then it has a habit of changing… never content

“Life” the biggest four letter word I have ever said

My goal is to look, listen, and learn… so feel free to teach me, I am an apt pupil

I'm grateful to CNet and the people who have voted for me. I'm thrilled to have won CNet scholarships. CNet is the best kept secret. I've learned new things, made friends and earned scholarships the fun way on here.

I have been on cnet since the Summer before my junior year in high school. I am now a senior at Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I have a 3.9 GPA but I'm working for that 4.0. I'm majoring in Communication Sciences and Speech Disorders on the education track I'm doing my best to graduate on time, intern and go straight to grad school (an entry level position in my field requires a Master's), grad school is extremely competitive in my field-wish me luck.

My family has definitely gone through some rough times. My hero, my mother, died after fighting cancer on April 5th, 2013. She is my inspiration and you will definitely hear a lot about her on cnet.

Welcome welcome to my profile page! I'm sure you're the first in ages to visit, so don't mind the cobwebs or the fort made of ramen noodle cups.

I'm at the 6 year mark in my Architectural Doctoral program, working on some very real upper level work that will doubtless consume my life with studio projects and internships where I have to wear a tie (turns out I don't!). I've been living/sleeping on the floor of various rooms for years now, and don't really mind it, though the building does have this one rat (only one...) and he ate a muffin I'd hidden in my desk once. Bastard. Still, when you get enough sleep the classes are fun, and I'm super tight with a bunch of other huge nerds in the program too. Seriously, I'm amazed we don't wear suspenders.

After I graduate from Hogwarts, I plan on zipping about the world in a really snazzy way working for various architecture firms and getting myself a whole ton of experience. I know many good people in a few countries now that are professionals, and who knows, maybe I'll get to work for them and be all worldly while I make buildings...in the world. It would be neat, anyways. But after all that I'm going to open my own firm! Oh yes, I even have a name picked out, but it's secret. I shall bask in design work as my own boss from then on, doing architecture, music, art, graphic design, world design in games, even collaborating with my favorite game companies to help them work on new titles. Oh the joy. Sometimes I just sit and glow to myself.

Also, I like ferrets and redheads, and if you have something against either well....this town ain't big enough for the two of us and all my redheads and ferrets! I can also legitimately say that because I'm from Montana.

Oh, my "video" is me holding my thumb over the camera while an awesome quote plays from a movie. I like my anonymity just as much as V.

UPDATE

Attending practicum at CSCEC and completing my masters of architecture from Tongji in Shanghai. Working on a residential/commercial development that will redefine Qi He and a school that will be in a neighboring province and teach k-12. and this stuff will probably be built! While this is a fantastic opportunity for me and I'll be able to do a lot with this degree for the rest of my life, it's gonna run a cool 55 grand to finish the China portion of my education. In short, you can expect to see me on here for a LONG time!

I'll see y'all around soon!

I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education inDec. 2004 and started working with children with developmental delays as an intensive behavioral intervention (IBI) therapist in 2007. I loved my job, but because of State budgets cuts and changes to the program, I felt that it was a good time to look for new challenges before my job disappeared completely. I continued to work as an IBI therapist while working on my master's in social work at Eastern Washington University. I graduated in March, 2014 and am currently looking for work after finishing my maternity leave.

I live in northern Idaho with my husband of 16 years and our three children: a girl who is 7, a boy who is 5, and our baby girl who was born in May, 2014.

Hey there fellow CNetter!

I'm a senior in neuroscience at Boston University. I split my time between Boston and Denver (where my family lives). Originally, I'm from Portland, OR where I spent my childhood, and Central Oregon, where I spent my teenage years. So if you were to ask me which part of the world I would consider "home"... I really wouldn't have a clear answer for you! Since my semester abroad in Germany, I've wanted to explore more of the world, so I don't see myself settling down anywhere in the near future.

Besides that, I have two siblings,--a younger brother and sister--a dog (whom I love very much), and a cat that can't be bothered to greet me when I come home for vacation. Whenever I'm not studying, I tend to be reading anything you can imagine (books, news, random Wiki article) or writing fiction. I really enjoy anything with a great story--movies, TV shows, music, video games, you name it.

After college, I would really love to teach English abroad for a few years (hopefully Japan!), travel the world and erase my undergrad debt, then go back to get my master’s in education so I can teach science or English to high school students. All the while, I will be busy writing on here and writing fiction, so perhaps that can be a side career or (if I’m really lucky) I can become an author! How cool would that be?

My parents do not assist me with my tuition cost, so I have to take out large loans to cover the difference. When I graduate this spring I will have a total of $51,662 in debt, public and private, so I really need to do everything I can to pay that off as soon as possible! (before the interest makes it worse) I would really like to not to be in debt for the rest of my life.

That said, I am so grateful of all the support I have already received. I'm glad to see some old friends still around, but I'm always on the lookout to talk with someone new :)

If you have a facebook, please feel free to add me as a friend! (https://www.facebook.com/joseph.schlatter)

To all my fellow Collegnetters and to Collegenet, first I would like to thank you for taking the time to view my profile and investing time to read this as well!

-If you haven't guessed yet, my name Is Maryam. I am an 18 year old, and attending Temple University for architecture. I love art, animals (Lots of posts involving animal rights and vegetarianism!), and travel.
- I am bilingual and enjoy teaching English as a second language, especially if I'm working with kids (Although I don't plan on making education my career).
- I've studied overseas, in Syria, for about 5 years, but moved back towards the end of my junior year in high school because of a breakout of civil war.(Which hopefully, some of you have heard of at least!) (If not go research it! It's all over the news!)(I pray that madness ends soon, it has been too long....)

So why do I need you votes??
- Simple enough, I am in need of financial aid, and not just loans I'll be paying back for the next 20 plus years! Who wants to be paying back student loans when their own kids are about to enter college!?

What makes me deserve your vote? (Trust me, I'm doing my best not to sound cocky... That can be a difficult task when it comes to writing these things!):
- I have a plan for my future. I know what I want to do with my life, and not only 'Hey, I want to go to college!'
- I really really want to go into architecture (as I have, and I believe in a way, it is my calling), although I'm not entirely positive what branch of architecture I want to do yet, but I have Architectural design in mind. Why architecture? It is a job that is demanded now-a-days, I love sketching and designing, and is a competitive careers, which by previous experience, I know is an environment that'll keep be motivated. I also plan to search for an internship in a firm during my junior year.
- I am grateful. I don't take things for granted, and I appreciate what I am given, no matter how small or big it may be! I know I am great need of financial help for school, and every penny is MUCH appreciated! I have worked very hard for where I am today, and I will continue to work just as hard for many many years to come.
- I want to make my mark on the world, I don't want to come and go as if I never existed. Yes, it's a fairly generic wish in the new and young generation, but why wouldn't it be?

Thank you! And may the votes be with you!

Okay, a little about me... finally! ^_^

Originally born in California, I moved to Las Vegas to get my BS in Architecture at UNLV. I worked for a year in a firm while figuring out what my next step would be and here I am! I chose the University of Hawai'i School of Architecture for a specific program: Global Track | China Focus. Essentially, I will be spending 1 year in Hawai'i, one year in Shanghai to get a Masters from Tongji University, then back in Hawai'i to finish off an architectural doctorate.

Whew! That's the academic stuff in a nutshell.

While I'm not entirely sure where I see myself in, say, ten years, I'm aiming to set myself up with some good possibilities through this program. Someday I'll be trying my hand at running my own firm (far down the road... licensure first, ugh). I'm motivated by the idea that as an architect, I am in a position to design for one of the most basic of human needs, shelter, and a critical need of our time, to not kill our beautiful world! I know it won't be an easy task to get every building up to the sustainable standards they should be at, but it must be done and I want to help.

As for CNET, I'm here because a friend introduced me to it and I'm poor ^_^ Well, I've actually been fortunate to have parents willing to help with the undergraduate part, but now that I'm in graduate school, it's all on me. And boy is Hawai'i expensive :(

So, you'll be seeing me (and my goofy faces) around. I occasionally suffer from bouts of selective laziness, which I expect no forgiveness for. It's a problem of mine *sigh.* But even if I disappear for a while, I'll try to keep up with my voties. No reason to be THAT lazy! Bad stephanie >_<

CNET... yay!

Hi guys,

Thanks for checking out my profile page.

I'm originally from Uganda and have been living the States for about five years. I came here to study a Bachelor's in Communications and after that I have gone on to pursue a Masters in Linguistics. Yep, I will definitely take that break and travel/gain more work experience perhaps for a year or two. It's long overdue!

I have to tell you when I first came to the US, I was immediately in awe of...the roads! Man you guys can build. Seriously. Where I come from, a "high-way" is normally three-way but most roads are two-way. You can imagine how low my jaw dropped when I drove on the I-something or other. It was terrifying but thrilling at the same time. I appreciate the hard work you put in to make your country what it is.

I have visited several states in the US but my favorite is still Virginia. Yes I have lived here since I came to this country, so my view is biased. But there is something so restful and quaint about this state in comparison to the others. Go Virginia!

I enjoy bike-riding, walking, reading and watching anything related to adventure, romance or British-drama. If you have any suggestions on the best of all these, I'm all ears! I also enjoy talking so before this turns into a full-blown monologue, I better stop here.

I hope to hear from you and thanks again for checking out my profile page.

See you in the forums!

Hello, CNet!

I am a 2nd year psychology student! My passion in life is to become a Gender/Sex Therapist. I for one am a huge supporter and part of the LGBTQ community, I am also a MTF Transgender Student. By becoming a therapist my dream of being able to aid others like myself becomes possible.

Majority of my time is honestly spent surfing the web. I love reading and gaining knowledge in general. I am also a huge gamer. My likes are Dancing, Biking, Writing, Critiquing, Music, Movies, Games, just a lot of stuff. Normally if I don't like something you will know, just because I am extremely opinionated and have many warrants to state my case behind a certain ideology. That said, I can be wavered.

I have never seen such a thing like CNET, but lets see where it takes me! I look forward to getting to know my fellow members. Most likely a lot of my post will be trans-related or like a blog. I do however love to argue... no not like yell at one another but have nice debates on certain topics... well any topics really.

This scholarship site looks like more than just a scholarship site, its more like a bundle of knowledge just waiting to be explored. I can't wait to explore it!

My name is Sarah. I live in Baton Rouge, LA.

I attended LSU in Baton Rouge for 5 years before transferring to LSUHSC (Health Science Center) in New Orleans to complete my undergraduate BS degree in Medical Technology in 2008. I work as a Medical Technologist at LSU-SVM (School of Veterinary Medicine), where I take care of the wonderful creatures, big and small, that show up at the doors of the SVM Clinics.

So why am I on CollegeNET?

I graduated with $30,000 in student loan debt. The scholarships I win will go towards helping me pay off the debt. I would like to go to graduate school to earn an MS, but I need to pay down the debt before I do go back to school.

I appreciate all your posts to my forums, for reading my forums, and for voting for me.

Hi. My name's Megan, and I'm new here. I'm currently studying math at Seattle University, and I love it! I just finished my first quarter.

I work as a teaching assistant in college algebra classes, and it's my favorite job ever. There's something really rewarding about seeing adult students push through to understand something they never thought they could. Because of my job, I'd like to teach math at a community college.

The plan is two more years at Seattle U, and then grad school. Somewhere.



Right now I'm kind of figuring life out. About a year ago I lost my best friend to suicide. I miss him a lot, but I no longer feel guilty about smiling or laughing. I'm figuring out who I am without him.

I look forward to some great discussions and I appreciate insights

What a Great Site and Great People I have met. It really means a lot to me and changed my life for the better. If you are new here please stick around and give it a chance.

I consider Cnet to be a place I can talk with friends.

I wish I could say I return votes but the new system doesn’t permit that…

What I can guarantee is if you take the time to converse with me and write thoughtfully, I will most assuredly vote for you…

My Name is Eric and I am an aspiring social worker…

I have my associates in business administration
Exactly one year away from my bachelor’s in psychology
One year and a few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I have a 4.0 in all the courses I have taken over the last two years or so…

I am very happy go lucky when I can be and want to emphasize my humorous side…

If you have any questions feel free to ask me here or my email ericvictorvelez@gmail.com...

I cannot claim to have all the answers; in fact I am probably more confused and lost about life...

Once you think you are happy then it has a habit of changing… never content

“Life” the biggest four letter word I have ever said

My goal is to look, listen, and learn… so feel free to teach me, I am an apt pupil

Hi there friends! I just want to say a quick and huge thank you for all the votes, support, laughts, thoughts, and for the wonderful time you all help me have here. You are all amazing and help make this environment so great to be a part of. Truly, thank you thank you!

I want to do something different. *Evil laughing* If you don't gather from this that I'm rather creative, love to be goofy and dorky, and just love making people smile, then well..at least I tried right? But really now, I really hope this makes you smile. It's my Cnet Theme Song! Hope you like it!

Here's the lyrics! Follow or sing along if you'd like!!

"Im on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

Yeah I, I know it’s hard to imagine,
The minutes and hours we spend,
And even harder to think of,
Ideas that no one has thought of,

You say it's too hard to rank 10th
But I say give it a try,
And with all that drive you take in,
You'll be cruisin to the top,

I've had restless nights,
With thoughts of sign ins
And seeing no votes,
My heart sinks to the floor
That's when we gather strength
And our sleepy minds get overly creative.

I’m on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

If Cnet happened to never exist,
I would have no chance to write like this,
All my college bills would stack up so high
And I'd be forced to make McDonald's fries.

Oh yeah, you woke up early this morning,
With thoughts of writing a post,
But someone an hour before you,
Signed on and thought of it first,
Oh and there's two votes to be given,
Better think of them now,
Because if given last minute,
They might just move right past you.

We've had arguments,
With trolls and demands,
Now we're all best friends,
Yeah we'd like to believe but,
When we compete we're still
On our feet ready to climb up the ranks.

I’m on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

If Cnet happened to never exist,
I would have no chance to sing this song,
My days and nights would be boring and long,
And I'd be forced to sing another song.....like

"Call Me Maybe"
I love you Cnet!! "

Welcome welcome to my profile page! I'm sure you're the first in ages to visit, so don't mind the cobwebs or the fort made of ramen noodle cups.

I'm at the 6 year mark in my Architectural Doctoral program, working on some very real upper level work that will doubtless consume my life with studio projects and internships where I have to wear a tie (turns out I don't!). I've been living/sleeping on the floor of various rooms for years now, and don't really mind it, though the building does have this one rat (only one...) and he ate a muffin I'd hidden in my desk once. Bastard. Still, when you get enough sleep the classes are fun, and I'm super tight with a bunch of other huge nerds in the program too. Seriously, I'm amazed we don't wear suspenders.

After I graduate from Hogwarts, I plan on zipping about the world in a really snazzy way working for various architecture firms and getting myself a whole ton of experience. I know many good people in a few countries now that are professionals, and who knows, maybe I'll get to work for them and be all worldly while I make buildings...in the world. It would be neat, anyways. But after all that I'm going to open my own firm! Oh yes, I even have a name picked out, but it's secret. I shall bask in design work as my own boss from then on, doing architecture, music, art, graphic design, world design in games, even collaborating with my favorite game companies to help them work on new titles. Oh the joy. Sometimes I just sit and glow to myself.

Also, I like ferrets and redheads, and if you have something against either well....this town ain't big enough for the two of us and all my redheads and ferrets! I can also legitimately say that because I'm from Montana.

Oh, my "video" is me holding my thumb over the camera while an awesome quote plays from a movie. I like my anonymity just as much as V.

UPDATE

Attending practicum at CSCEC and completing my masters of architecture from Tongji in Shanghai. Working on a residential/commercial development that will redefine Qi He and a school that will be in a neighboring province and teach k-12. and this stuff will probably be built! While this is a fantastic opportunity for me and I'll be able to do a lot with this degree for the rest of my life, it's gonna run a cool 55 grand to finish the China portion of my education. In short, you can expect to see me on here for a LONG time!

I'll see y'all around soon!

Hey there, I'm Jamie. :)

I want to start this off by thanking each and every one of you who has supported me these past couple of years and helped me receive scholarships from this fantastic website. I appreciate you SO much, and I will be around as much as I possibly can in order to return the favor. You are all such wonderful, deserving individuals and I enjoy every conversation I have with each one of you. I am forever grateful for your support.

If you're new to the site (welcome to CollegeNET!) or you don't know me very well, here's a little bit about myself.

First off, my username is pronounced (tee-zay). It's a word I made up when I was really, really young and it stuck. It's become a part of me, even though that sounds incredibly cheesy.

I am 22 years old, and I went Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. I majored in Graphic Design and minored in Marketing. I'm very artistic- I love to do crafts, make collages, and scrapbook. I'd rather make something than buy it. I'm known for doodling all over my notes, being a perfectionist, and having great computer skills. I think these traits are what made me decide to be a Graphic Designer, and I'm beyond excited about my choice in this career path.

Even when I'm not competing for a scholarship, I love to chat on CollegeNET, so I'm sure you'll see me around often. :)

My name is Nichole, I am 23 years old. I currently am in college aiming for a Bachelor's degree in Technical Management with a concentration in Criminal Justice & psychology. I am also a CEO/Founder of an aspiring non-profit organization, that raise's awareness & provides support for those affected by any type of facial condition or illness.

I am a mother before anything & everything else.I have two boys that are my world. My oldest will be 3 in November & my youngest is almost a year old. I am a full time mom, & plan on being out of school before my oldest starts school.

By obtaining more scholarships along my college journey, I can use this to complete school faster & with less financial burdens. In my mind - me bettering myself &opening up more opportunities for myself in the future, is me trying to do, or be "better" for my kids to be able to do as well as possible, or have more opportunities opened up to them, as a result of my choices and hard work. It's my ultimate goal to be the best person I can be so my kids can want better for them self.

After I am awarded my Bachelor's degree I plan on going back to school to earn a bachelor's in psychology. I currently am working on Bachelors degree in Technical Management with Criminal Justice as my major & Psychology as a minor.

Forensic Psychologist, that is the ultimate career I am aiming to obtain. I recently have became very interesting in becoming an online college professor later in life. I think this is the career I will enter into after I retire from being a forensic psychologist.

I am currently in college part-time due to my financial assistance, I would love nothing more than to be able to afford to be a full-time student, even if it's only for a semester or two. I have no outside help, & have reach my aggregated loan limits - meaning I no longer can take out any more student loans toward this undergrad degree.

I am in hope of obtaining scholarships, and switching my status from part-time to full-time. This will allow me to finish school a lot faster, as a result of that, I will be able to get a better paying job faster, and can start on my next degree and next goal.

I want to wish you all the best of luck in obtaining the scholarships offered weekly here at CollegeNet, and also wanted to say Thank You ahead of time - to those who vote for me for both taking the time to vote for me and for helping me achieve my goals.

I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education inDec. 2004 and started working with children with developmental delays as an intensive behavioral intervention (IBI) therapist in 2007. I loved my job, but because of State budgets cuts and changes to the program, I felt that it was a good time to look for new challenges before my job disappeared completely. I continued to work as an IBI therapist while working on my master's in social work at Eastern Washington University. I graduated in March, 2014 and am currently looking for work after finishing my maternity leave.

I'm 37 years old. I have a BA in English with a minor in Geology from QC. I've graduated with an MS in Geology from URI.

I'm of Native American, Irish, English, German and Greek descent.

If you want to know more: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/secretlife/scientists/alexandrea-bowman/

I was lucky enough to be accepted into Sigma Xi as an undergraduate for my research & attending several conferences. I was also accepted into the CUNY Pipeline Program & the MSPHDs program.

I founded & was the president of a student chapter of both AISES & SACNAS as a graduate student. I also volunteered (& hope to continue to do so) for programs with at risk children.

I ended up on CNet because school is expensive & I have student loans to pay off from my undergraduate years ($66,000+ worth of student loans). I would like to pursue a PhD in coastal and marine processes and would like to pay off some of my student debt before moving on. I figure I need to win about 5 times each quarter in order to pay down my debt in a reasonable time frame, but that is a lot to ask of myself and CollegeNET so I just try to do my best on here.

I've met some great people here. I will stick around here for a while, even if I am not winning scholarships & when I'm out of debt I would like to remain a voter to help out the next generation of CNetters. It's about the community.

There's a CNet Members Facebook page & if you've Facebook you should join. Friend me on Facebook, I'm pretty easy to find: www.facebook.com/alexandreabowman

Update: I'm in a relationship with a great guy, finishing a journal article for publication, I moved to CT permanently. I am still looking for a job in my field and am currently a substitute teacher in CT, which I hate (it pays me less than I made at my last job). My boyfriend and I plan to get married before January, so look for that engagement forum.

To all my fellow Collegnetters and to Collegenet, first I would like to thank you for taking the time to view my profile and investing time to read this as well!

-If you haven't guessed yet, my name Is Maryam. I am an 18 year old, and attending Temple University for architecture. I love art, animals (Lots of posts involving animal rights and vegetarianism!), and travel.
- I am bilingual and enjoy teaching English as a second language, especially if I'm working with kids (Although I don't plan on making education my career).
- I've studied overseas, in Syria, for about 5 years, but moved back towards the end of my junior year in high school because of a breakout of civil war.(Which hopefully, some of you have heard of at least!) (If not go research it! It's all over the news!)(I pray that madness ends soon, it has been too long....)

So why do I need you votes??
- Simple enough, I am in need of financial aid, and not just loans I'll be paying back for the next 20 plus years! Who wants to be paying back student loans when their own kids are about to enter college!?

What makes me deserve your vote? (Trust me, I'm doing my best not to sound cocky... That can be a difficult task when it comes to writing these things!):
- I have a plan for my future. I know what I want to do with my life, and not only 'Hey, I want to go to college!'
- I really really want to go into architecture (as I have, and I believe in a way, it is my calling), although I'm not entirely positive what branch of architecture I want to do yet, but I have Architectural design in mind. Why architecture? It is a job that is demanded now-a-days, I love sketching and designing, and is a competitive careers, which by previous experience, I know is an environment that'll keep be motivated. I also plan to search for an internship in a firm during my junior year.
- I am grateful. I don't take things for granted, and I appreciate what I am given, no matter how small or big it may be! I know I am great need of financial help for school, and every penny is MUCH appreciated! I have worked very hard for where I am today, and I will continue to work just as hard for many many years to come.
- I want to make my mark on the world, I don't want to come and go as if I never existed. Yes, it's a fairly generic wish in the new and young generation, but why wouldn't it be?

Thank you! And may the votes be with you!

My name is Marie and I am a wife to an amazing hubby of 18 (almost 19!) years and we have 2 beautiful daughters who I love and adore with everything I have. Getting to be with these three people everyday make my life complete and keep me striving to do better. I really am blessed! I would love to be able to pay off my student loans so I can continue to save for college and other things for my kiddos! Plus earning free money is kinda cool!

I am also a nurse and I LOVE taking care of people. Nursing is a career to which you need dedication, reliability, trust and a whole lot of heart. I believe that I have these skills and I am lucky enough to have amazing coworkers who posses them as well. I love working in a team setting for the greater good of someone other than myself. I genuinely want to make a difference to people, and to help them and their families through anything they maybe going through.

I am trying to win these scholarships so I can pay off my student loans so I can cut back some at work. As I said before my girls are my heart and I really want a little more time at home with them! Happy voting!

Hello, my name is Taelon Parson.

I attend the University of Washington and am currently majoring in Biology with an emphasis in Physiology. My ultimate goal is to attend medical school here at the beautiful University of Washington and to become an Orthopedic Surgeon, an aspiration I have had since I was only a boy.

I have been blessed enough to have the opportunity to play football here at the U-Dub, as a walk-on, and I am working my hardest to earn a scholarship from the program as soon as possible. I am a wide receiver, I wear number the 86 and I pride myself on being the hardest worker on the field, in the weight room and in the classroom.

As with everything, I plan to make the most on my time and effort here on Collegenet. I am an out-of-state student here at the University of Washington and I have not yet earned a scholarship from the football program. Tuition is high and I have been working to help take the pressure off of my parents and myself, so far as student loans go. And so, I am here to do my best and to excel in every way I know how.

I am a man of deep emotive feelings..often filled with sorrow.

please accept me for who I am...please

..I have grown tired of being an honest beggar..

...we cannot change culture. culture must change itself..

one cannot take from another that in which one does not have

~~bearlish~~spoken here

i do not wear a tutu, a funny hat (well sometimes), an umbrella..or ride a bike in a circle...


~~~driven by desire~~~ its my bearism. dont even think of using it as a screen name..understood!?!?!? dabear is a hungry sort..besides the usual nuts and berries...gotta have a little salmon..
ok...now about dabear....

"follow the evidence" (grissom) interpreted from a quote from ep220.

so call me "mr greycloud bear" if you please...or felt like the wind..or for those who know me from ages ago greatvoice (gv for short)

contrary to the gruff rough exterior and hard pounding opinions, i am a very kind, loving, eclectic person. I write as a hobby that evokes deep feelings, and have been published.i enjoy art and it's expressionism..from paintings and graphics to music and film. most people love me or hate me..isn't that life? **note** this is all to be a bit tongue in cheek. and with a bit of dry humour.

i am called a native english teacher because i teach english as a second language and my first language is english. i teach esl outside of the states.

i am also a doctoral (PhD) candidate in Adult Education. Who knows I may be your teacher one day in some other subject than English, perhaps cultural studies or something. I was a trainer before and I made people think. I used many tools in training as i do in teaching. It pays to think here too!

If you would like to vote for me here, that would be appreciated kindly! yes, you can vote for me! see the vote button!:)~

uggh research!and it won;t end!

for those who know me as "felt like the wind"...
i am who i am and that's all i can be
i am the water and the wind..my voice speaks with the crashing waves of life, and the wind is how my thoughts touch you. i am often quiet and never heard, but you know i have been there or here...

I also have motor skills issues, and though that is my issue, it also has to do with who i am and my words.

I am not one to believe in god, though I have my spirits that guide me. (there is a diff yes.)

"as we walk through this world..we will slowly see a path. it is destiny calling. follow it, and good will follow you"

I'm grateful to CNet and the people who have voted for me. I'm thrilled to have won CNet scholarships. CNet is the best kept secret. I've learned new things, made friends and earned scholarships the fun way on here.

I have been on cnet since the Summer before my junior year in high school. I am now a senior at Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I have a 3.9 GPA but I'm working for that 4.0. I'm majoring in Communication Sciences and Speech Disorders on the education track I'm doing my best to graduate on time, intern and go straight to grad school (an entry level position in my field requires a Master's), grad school is extremely competitive in my field-wish me luck.

My family has definitely gone through some rough times. My hero, my mother, died after fighting cancer on April 5th, 2013. She is my inspiration and you will definitely hear a lot about her on cnet.

Here is a link to my fundraising page with the American Cancer Society http://main.acsevents.org/goto/Loren_Alexander

and my fundraising page with Support Connection http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/loren-alexander/walk2013

My mini resume:
-This Summer I am interning in my field
-Last Summer I volunteered in my field at a hospital
-I volunteered helping the emotionally and physically disabled ride horses as a means of therapy
-I volunteer for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
-I am a member of National Students of Speech Language and Hearing Association on campus
-I ballroom dance


If you'd like to be friends, add me on facebook www.facebook.com/loren.alexander or email me at la49013p@pace.edu It would be nice to chat without a 5 post maximum limit. Or if you like sending and receiving mail, message me for my address!

I hope to get to know all of you better through your posts (let your personality come through!). Thank you for your time and this amazing opportunity to fund my education and ward off debt from student loans!

Welcome welcome to my profile page! I'm sure you're the first in ages to visit, so don't mind the cobwebs or the fort made of ramen noodle cups.

I'm at the 6 year mark in my Architectural Doctoral program, working on some very real upper level work that will doubtless consume my life with studio projects and internships where I have to wear a tie (turns out I don't!). I've been living/sleeping on the floor of various rooms for years now, and don't really mind it, though the building does have this one rat (only one...) and he ate a muffin I'd hidden in my desk once. Bastard. Still, when you get enough sleep the classes are fun, and I'm super tight with a bunch of other huge nerds in the program too. Seriously, I'm amazed we don't wear suspenders.

After I graduate from Hogwarts, I plan on zipping about the world in a really snazzy way working for various architecture firms and getting myself a whole ton of experience. I know many good people in a few countries now that are professionals, and who knows, maybe I'll get to work for them and be all worldly while I make buildings...in the world. It would be neat, anyways. But after all that I'm going to open my own firm! Oh yes, I even have a name picked out, but it's secret. I shall bask in design work as my own boss from then on, doing architecture, music, art, graphic design, world design in games, even collaborating with my favorite game companies to help them work on new titles. Oh the joy. Sometimes I just sit and glow to myself.

Also, I like ferrets and redheads, and if you have something against either well....this town ain't big enough for the two of us and all my redheads and ferrets! I can also legitimately say that because I'm from Montana.

Oh, my "video" is me holding my thumb over the camera while an awesome quote plays from a movie. I like my anonymity just as much as V.

In short, you can expect to see me on here for a LONG time!

I'll see y'all around soon!

Hey there, I'm Jamie. :)

I want to start this off by thanking each and every one of you who has supported me these past couple of years and helped me receive scholarships from this fantastic website. I appreciate you SO much, and I will be around as much as I possibly can in order to return the favor. You are all such wonderful, deserving individuals and I enjoy every conversation I have with each one of you. I am forever grateful for your support.

If you're new to the site (welcome to CollegeNET!) or you don't know me very well, here's a little bit about myself.

First off, my username is pronounced (tee-zay). It's a word I made up when I was really, really young and it stuck. It's become a part of me, even though that sounds incredibly cheesy.

I am 22 years old, and I went Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. I majored in Graphic Design and minored in Marketing. I'm very artistic- I love to do crafts, make collages, and scrapbook. I'd rather make something than buy it. I'm known for doodling all over my notes, being a perfectionist, and having great computer skills. I think these traits are what made me decide to be a Graphic Designer, and I'm beyond excited about my choice in this career path.

Even when I'm not competing for a scholarship, I love to chat on CollegeNET, so I'm sure you'll see me around often. :)

I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education inDec. 2004 and started working with children with developmental delays as an intensive behavioral intervention (IBI) therapist in 2007. I loved my job, but because of State budgets cuts and changes to the program, I felt that it was a good time to look for new challenges before my job disappeared completely. I continued to work as an IBI therapist while working on my master's in social work at Eastern Washington University. I graduated in March, 2014 and am currently looking for work after finishing my maternity leave.

I live in northern Idaho with my husband of 16 years and our three children: a girl who is 7, a boy who is 5, and our baby girl who was born in May, 2014.

Hey there fellow CNetter!

I'm a senior in neuroscience at Boston University. I split my time between Boston and Denver (where my family lives). Originally, I'm from Portland, OR where I spent my childhood, and Central Oregon, where I spent my teenage years. So if you were to ask me which part of the world I would consider "home"... I really wouldn't have a clear answer for you! Since my semester abroad in Germany, I've wanted to explore more of the world, so I don't see myself settling down anywhere in the near future.

Besides that, I have two siblings,--a younger brother and sister--a dog (whom I love very much), and a cat that can't be bothered to greet me when I come home for vacation. Whenever I'm not studying, I tend to be reading anything you can imagine (books, news, random Wiki article) or writing fiction. I really enjoy anything with a great story--movies, TV shows, music, video games, you name it.

After college, I would really love to teach English abroad for a few years (hopefully Japan!), travel the world and erase my undergrad debt, then go back to get my master’s in education so I can teach science or English to high school students. All the while, I will be busy writing on here and writing fiction, so perhaps that can be a side career or (if I’m really lucky) I can become an author! How cool would that be?

My parents do not assist me with my tuition cost, so I have to take out large loans to cover the difference. When I graduate this spring I will have a total of $51,662 in debt, public and private, so I really need to do everything I can to pay that off as soon as possible! (before the interest makes it worse) I would really like to not to be in debt for the rest of my life.

That said, I am so grateful of all the support I have already received. I'm glad to see some old friends still around, but I'm always on the lookout to talk with someone new :)

If you have a facebook, please feel free to add me as a friend! (https://www.facebook.com/joseph.schlatter)

My Name is Erin. I am a mother, wife and a nurse. I love life. My posts are typically either from work related topics, my toddler/parenting and most everyday life.

I joined CollegeNet to help pay back my tons and tons of student loans. I've completed about 7 years of college but I'm not a doctor, just a nurse. I never really knew what I was doing in life or where I wanted to go, so during my journey, I racked up the student loans. Lesson learned.

Good luck to everyone. I look forward to reading everyone's forums and comments.

I am grateful for those of you who have voted for me and for those just getting to know me. So thank you for visiting my profile.This has been a fascinating experience.

About me: Starting a new phase of my life: kids are grown, happily remarried, just accepted to a doctoral program. I will be coming up with some creative ideas to pay for it. I have received a small amount of scholarship $. But I am helping my kids pay for their first degrees before I can justify paying for my third. So, CNETers I need you. We need each other.

Love to dance, throw parties, eat out, work hard, hang with friends, and be with my dog!!

I will figure out how to fix my video so you can see me and then I can say hi personally!

I am a teacher and a mom mostly! I have 4 awesome boys who keep me busy all of the time. We are a football family! My favorite thing to do is watch the boys play and I am lucky enough that they all have developed a love for the game as well.

I am excited to have found Cnet because aside from being mom and teaching, I am working a couple side jobs to help support my oldest son who attends the University of Washington. I have an enormous student loan debt of my own and his has been added to it recently. I don’t want him to end up in my shoes so I have helped probably way too much! Although I don’t regret attending college or helping my son chase a dream, I have created quite a debt after obtaining my second Bachelor’s degree and then my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction as an adult!

Thank you all for the votes and support in the forums! Good Luck CNetters.

Hey! You! Yeah, you! Jump on in, the water's fine!

Well, fellow CNET homie, thanks for stopping by my profile!!

My name is Natasha Bodiroga and I go to the BEST school in the world, also known as the University of Arizona. I bleed cardinal red and navy blue, and I will love this school till the ends of the earth because of everything it has done for me!

I am from Scottsdale, AZ, but I promise you I'm not a Snobsdalien because I can't stand those prima donnas either, don't worry... Even though we enter triple digit weather, summer will still be my favorite time of the year. I enjoy long walks on the beach... But what I love most are Arizona sunsets because they're unlike any other!

I currently am studying Public Health at UA but technically I'm a Pre-Dental major. I want to be an orthodontist and I'm ecstatic that after having this dream for 10 years, I am now in the process of making it become reality.

The first thing people tell me when I say I want to be a dentist is that dentists have the highest suicide rates out of any profession... And all that I tell them is that I won't be a part of those statistics--being able to work with children every day and boosting their confidence from within their smiles would be the greatest gift in the world.

And that's exactly my aspiration in life: Beyonce would say to "be happy," but I would say "to change the world, one smile at a time."

I am a man of deep emotive feelings..often filled with sorrow.

please accept me for who I am...please

..I have grown tired of being an honest beggar..

...we cannot change culture. culture must change itself..

one cannot take from another that in which one does not have

~~bearlish~~spoken here

i do not wear a tutu, a funny hat (well sometimes), an umbrella..or ride a bike in a circle...


~~~driven by desire~~~ its my bearism. dont even think of using it as a screen name..understood!?!?!? dabear is a hungry sort..besides the usual nuts and berries...gotta have a little salmon..
ok...now about dabear....

"follow the evidence" (grissom) interpreted from a quote from ep220.

so call me "mr greycloud bear" if you please...or felt like the wind..or for those who know me from ages ago greatvoice (gv for short)

contrary to the gruff rough exterior and hard pounding opinions, i am a very kind, loving, eclectic person. I write as a hobby that evokes deep feelings, and have been published.i enjoy art and it's expressionism..from paintings and graphics to music and film. most people love me or hate me..isn't that life? **note** this is all to be a bit tongue in cheek. and with a bit of dry humour.

i am called a native english teacher because i teach english as a second language and my first language is english. i teach esl outside of the states.

i am also a doctoral (PhD) candidate in Adult Education. Who knows I may be your teacher one day in some other subject than English, perhaps cultural studies or something. I was a trainer before and I made people think. I used many tools in training as i do in teaching. It pays to think here too!

If you would like to vote for me here, that would be appreciated kindly! yes, you can vote for me! see the vote button!:)~

uggh research!and it won;t end!

for those who know me as "felt like the wind"...
i am who i am and that's all i can be
i am the water and the wind..my voice speaks with the crashing waves of life, and the wind is how my thoughts touch you. i am often quiet and never heard, but you know i have been there or here...

I also have motor skills issues, and though that is my issue, it also has to do with who i am and my words.

I am not one to believe in god, though I have my spirits that guide me. (there is a diff yes.)

I look forward to some great discussions and I appreciate insights

What a Great Site and Great People I have met. It really means a lot to me and changed my life for the better. If you are new here please stick around and give it a chance.

I consider Cnet to be a place I can talk with friends.

I wish I could say I return votes but the new system doesn’t permit that…

What I can guarantee is if you take the time to converse with me and write thoughtfully, I will most assuredly vote for you…

My Name is Eric and I am an aspiring social worker…

I have my associates in business administration
Exactly one year away from my bachelor’s in psychology
One year and a few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I have a 4.0 in all the courses I have taken over the last two years or so…

I am very happy go lucky when I can be and want to emphasize my humorous side…

If you have any questions feel free to ask me here or my email ericvictorvelez@gmail.com...

I cannot claim to have all the answers; in fact I am probably more confused and lost about life...

Once you think you are happy then it has a habit of changing… never content

“Life” the biggest four letter word I have ever said

My goal is to look, listen, and learn… so feel free to teach me, I am an apt pupil

Hi there friends! I just want to say a quick and huge thank you for all the votes, support, laughts, thoughts, and for the wonderful time you all help me have here. You are all amazing and help make this environment so great to be a part of. Truly, thank you thank you!

I want to do something different. *Evil laughing* If you don't gather from this that I'm rather creative, love to be goofy and dorky, and just love making people smile, then well..at least I tried right? But really now, I really hope this makes you smile. It's my Cnet Theme Song! Hope you like it!

Here's the lyrics! Follow or sing along if you'd like!!

"Im on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

Yeah I, I know it’s hard to imagine,
The minutes and hours we spend,
And even harder to think of,
Ideas that no one has thought of,

You say it's too hard to rank 10th
But I say give it a try,
And with all that drive you take in,
You'll be cruisin to the top,

I've had restless nights,
With thoughts of sign ins
And seeing no votes,
My heart sinks to the floor
That's when we gather strength
And our sleepy minds get overly creative.

I’m on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

If Cnet happened to never exist,
I would have no chance to write like this,
All my college bills would stack up so high
And I'd be forced to make McDonald's fries.

Oh yeah, you woke up early this morning,
With thoughts of writing a post,
But someone an hour before you,
Signed on and thought of it first,
Oh and there's two votes to be given,
Better think of them now,
Because if given last minute,
They might just move right past you.

We've had arguments,
With trolls and demands,
Now we're all best friends,
Yeah we'd like to believe but,
When we compete we're still
On our feet ready to climb up the ranks.

I’m on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

If Cnet happened to never exist,
I would have no chance to sing this song,
My days and nights would be boring and long,
And I'd be forced to sing another song.....like

"Call Me Maybe"
I love you Cnet!! "

Welcome welcome to my profile page! I'm sure you're the first in ages to visit, so don't mind the cobwebs or the fort made of ramen noodle cups.

I'm at the 6 year mark in my Architectural Doctoral program, working on some very real upper level work that will doubtless consume my life with studio projects and internships where I have to wear a tie (turns out I don't!). I've been living/sleeping on the floor of various rooms for years now, and don't really mind it, though the building does have this one rat (only one...) and he ate a muffin I'd hidden in my desk once. Bastard. Still, when you get enough sleep the classes are fun, and I'm super tight with a bunch of other huge nerds in the program too. Seriously, I'm amazed we don't wear suspenders.

After I graduate from Hogwarts, I plan on zipping about the world in a really snazzy way working for various architecture firms and getting myself a whole ton of experience. I know many good people in a few countries now that are professionals, and who knows, maybe I'll get to work for them and be all worldly while I make buildings...in the world. It would be neat, anyways. But after all that I'm going to open my own firm! Oh yes, I even have a name picked out, but it's secret. I shall bask in design work as my own boss from then on, doing architecture, music, art, graphic design, world design in games, even collaborating with my favorite game companies to help them work on new titles. Oh the joy. Sometimes I just sit and glow to myself.

Also, I like ferrets and redheads, and if you have something against either well....this town ain't big enough for the two of us and all my redheads and ferrets! I can also legitimately say that because I'm from Montana.

Oh, my "video" is me holding my thumb over the camera while an awesome quote plays from a movie. I like my anonymity just as much as V.

UPDATE

Attending practicum at CSCEC and completing my masters of architecture from Tongji in Shanghai. Working on a residential/commercial development that will redefine Qi He and a school that will be in a neighboring province and teach k-12. and this stuff will probably be built! While this is a fantastic opportunity for me and I'll be able to do a lot with this degree for the rest of my life, it's gonna run a cool 55 grand to finish the China portion of my education. In short, you can expect to see me on here for a LONG time!

I'll see y'all around soon!

Hello to all!

My name is Demitrios and I am a graduate of the University of Notre Dame.

My name is Nichole, I am 23 years old. I currently am in college aiming for a Bachelor's degree in Technical Management with a concentration in Criminal Justice & psychology. I am also a CEO/Founder of an aspiring non-profit organization, that raise's awareness & provides support for those affected by any type of facial condition or illness.

I am a mother before anything & everything else.I have two boys that are my world. My oldest will be 3 in November & my youngest is almost a year old. I am a full time mom, & plan on being out of school before my oldest starts school.

By obtaining more scholarships along my college journey, I can use this to complete school faster & with less financial burdens. In my mind - me bettering myself &opening up more opportunities for myself in the future, is me trying to do, or be "better" for my kids to be able to do as well as possible, or have more opportunities opened up to them, as a result of my choices and hard work. It's my ultimate goal to be the best person I can be so my kids can want better for them self.

After I am awarded my Bachelor's degree I plan on going back to school to earn a bachelor's in psychology. I currently am working on Bachelors degree in Technical Management with Criminal Justice as my major & Psychology as a minor.

Forensic Psychologist, that is the ultimate career I am aiming to obtain. I recently have became very interesting in becoming an online college professor later in life. I think this is the career I will enter into after I retire from being a forensic psychologist.

I am currently in college part-time due to my financial assistance, I would love nothing more than to be able to afford to be a full-time student, even if it's only for a semester or two. I have no outside help, & have reach my aggregated loan limits - meaning I no longer can take out any more student loans toward this undergrad degree.

I am in hope of obtaining scholarships, and switching my status from part-time to full-time. This will allow me to finish school a lot faster, as a result of that, I will be able to get a better paying job faster, and can start on my next degree and next goal.

I want to wish you all the best of luck in obtaining the scholarships offered weekly here at CollegeNet, and also wanted to say Thank You ahead of time - to those who vote for me for both taking the time to vote for me and for helping me achieve my goals.

Hey There, I'm Marteen :]

Thanks for stopping by here on my Profile page. I think I will start off with the fact that I am studying Electronic Media and Film here at Northern Arizona University, in Flagstaff, Arizona. I hope to one day be either on air on your local news station or radio show, or to be filming, editing, or producing movies or television shows! I love being up here with the beautiful pines, the mountains and the lovely college town we have going for us.

There are so many things that I love to do! I love to meet and talk to people, I love to dance; modern, jazz, swing, lindy hop, and I guess I'll throw hip hop in there even though I am not that good at it. I love to make crafts especially for my friends, snowboarding, eating and trying delicious food, and last but not least my favorite animal is a stingray! I spent majority of my life on the ice. I skated competitively in synchronized skating, and in singles. If there are any ice skaters out there, let me know!! I Love to talk about figure skating! :]

I am so happy that I am apart of the amazing community here on College Net and I am so blessed with the opportunity. I love all the people that are on here, and love that I am starting to make connections with them outside of cnet! Don't be shy to add me on Facebook or anything of the sort! :]

Hi guys,

Thanks for checking out my profile page.

I'm originally from Uganda and have been living the States for about five years. I came here to study a Bachelor's in Communications and after that I have gone on to pursue a Masters in Linguistics. Yep, I will definitely take that break and travel/gain more work experience perhaps for a year or two. It's long overdue!

I have to tell you when I first came to the US, I was immediately in awe of...the roads! Man you guys can build. Seriously. Where I come from, a "high-way" is normally three-way but most roads are two-way. You can imagine how low my jaw dropped when I drove on the I-something or other. It was terrifying but thrilling at the same time. I appreciate the hard work you put in to make your country what it is.

I have visited several states in the US but my favorite is still Virginia. Yes I have lived here since I came to this country, so my view is biased. But there is something so restful and quaint about this state in comparison to the others. Go Virginia!

I enjoy bike-riding, walking, reading and watching anything related to adventure, romance or British-drama. If you have any suggestions on the best of all these, I'm all ears! I also enjoy talking so before this turns into a full-blown monologue, I better stop here.

I hope to hear from you and thanks again for checking out my profile page.

See you in the forums!

Hello - ¡hola - 你好 - привет - مرحبا - bonjour - こんにちは - ciao - Hallo - Olá

Welcome to my profile! :-)

WHO I AM:
My name is Eva!
The thing that I am most passionate about is writing. I write to express happiness, sorrow, frustration, contentment, and every other feeling that flows through me. I am a very passionate person. I feel very deeply about the earth, other humans, and existence itself.

WHAT I WANT:
One of the things I really want out of my time on Earth is to express my thoughts and ideas to others. I hope to one day publish a book, diary, or collection of personal essays. A second thing that I really want out of my time on Earth is travel far and wide. I want to explore valleys, forests, deserts, and oceans. A third thing that I really want out of my time on Earth is to become the most knowledgeable being my brain can withhold. I want to extensively understand the world in which I live in.
The last thing that I really want out of my time on Earth is to be happy, thankful, and blissful!

WHY I AM HERE:
I am on this website because for me, step one is somehow making my way to college. I need to broaden my mind and be exposed to all sorts of studies. I am very new to this, but I hope I win a scholarship! However, if I do not, at least I am putting my communication skills to good use, and learning a few things along the way!

CONTACT INFORMATION:
If anyone on this website would like to contact me/further discuss something, my email is: evacollegemail@yahoo.com


ALSO:
If any of you notice that you have a Facebook like on one of your replies/forums from a person named Eva CollegeMail, that is ME!
I like replies and forums to show people that I read what they said, and understood what they conveyed - and perhaps found it to be interesting/insightful.

Hi there friends! I just want to say a quick and huge thank you for all the votes, support, laughts, thoughts, and for the wonderful time you all help me have here. You are all amazing and help make this environment so great to be a part of. Truly, thank you thank you!

I want to do something different. *Evil laughing* If you don't gather from this that I'm rather creative, love to be goofy and dorky, and just love making people smile, then well..at least I tried right? But really now, I really hope this makes you smile. It's my Cnet Theme Song! Hope you like it!

Here's the lyrics! Follow or sing along if you'd like!!

"Im on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

Yeah I, I know it’s hard to imagine,
The minutes and hours we spend,
And even harder to think of,
Ideas that no one has thought of,

You say it's too hard to rank 10th
But I say give it a try,
And with all that drive you take in,
You'll be cruisin to the top,

I've had restless nights,
With thoughts of sign ins
And seeing no votes,
My heart sinks to the floor
That's when we gather strength
And our sleepy minds get overly creative.

I’m on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

If Cnet happened to never exist,
I would have no chance to write like this,
All my college bills would stack up so high
And I'd be forced to make McDonald's fries.

Oh yeah, you woke up early this morning,
With thoughts of writing a post,
But someone an hour before you,
Signed on and thought of it first,
Oh and there's two votes to be given,
Better think of them now,
Because if given last minute,
They might just move right past you.

We've had arguments,
With trolls and demands,
Now we're all best friends,
Yeah we'd like to believe but,
When we compete we're still
On our feet ready to climb up the ranks.

I’m on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

If Cnet happened to never exist,
I would have no chance to sing this song,
My days and nights would be boring and long,
And I'd be forced to sing another song.....like

"Call Me Maybe"
I love you Cnet!! "

Hola,a mi me encanta hablar español! :)

I'm Sarah. I am a graduate of Jacksonville University in Florida, class of 2011. I now hold degrees in both Economics and Spanish. I'm currently working as a social media manager at a local consulting firm as well as doing freelance projects in my spare time. I didn't let the lack of a stable job after graduation stop me from gaining experience and earning a living for myself. The flexibility of my job (and work) has been a real blessing.

I can't express enough how much this site has meant to me over the past 4 years. Your continued support and everything CollegeNet does for its contributors has been invaluable to me. I made it through my senior year without having to take out an extra loan - that was amazing! Now, however, I am shouldering quite a heavy student loan debt which is why I am back to actively competing to pay it all off.

I'm honestly just an ordinary girl with big dreams and a big heart for people. I love meeting new people and exploring new places. Having an open mind and a good thirst for adventure can bring new and fresh experiences that you have only dreamed of having. I love to laugh and make others laugh too. I studied abroad in Sevilla, Spain from January to May 2010 and it absolutely changed my life. I went back for a month long trip in May 2013. If you are considering a study abroad program, feel free to ask me any questions. I'd love to help!

My family has struggled with financial stability for most of my life and now my dad is dealing with some serious health problems. Right now, I am struggling to make minimum payments on the $50K+ in student loans. The majority of the loans are in my name but some are also in my mom's name. I love participating on here just for the sake of socializing and contributing to the amazing discussions, but I must say that my financial need is very dire. If you don't see me posting on here one week, I may be taking a break or having an off week. Nevertheless, I'm planning on being here for weeks and weeks, competing right alongside all of you! :-)

God bless you in your pursuit of your dreams and scholarships!

Thanks for visiting my profile! I know we'll be talking soon! :)

Hey there, I'm Jamie. :)

I want to start this off by thanking each and every one of you who has supported me these past couple of years and helped me receive scholarships from this fantastic website. I appreciate you SO much, and I will be around as much as I possibly can in order to return the favor. You are all such wonderful, deserving individuals and I enjoy every conversation I have with each one of you. I am forever grateful for your support.

If you're new to the site (welcome to CollegeNET!) or you don't know me very well, here's a little bit about myself.

First off, my username is pronounced (tee-zay). It's a word I made up when I was really, really young and it stuck. It's become a part of me, even though that sounds incredibly cheesy.

I am 22 years old, and I went Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. I majored in Graphic Design and minored in Marketing. I'm very artistic- I love to do crafts, make collages, and scrapbook. I'd rather make something than buy it. I'm known for doodling all over my notes, being a perfectionist, and having great computer skills. I think these traits are what made me decide to be a Graphic Designer, and I'm beyond excited about my choice in this career path.

Even when I'm not competing for a scholarship, I love to chat on CollegeNET, so I'm sure you'll see me around often. :)

Hello to all!

My name is Demitrios and I am a graduate of the University of Notre Dame.

My name is Nichole, I am 23 years old. I currently am in college aiming for a Bachelor's degree in Technical Management with a concentration in Criminal Justice & psychology. I am also a CEO/Founder of an aspiring non-profit organization, that raise's awareness & provides support for those affected by any type of facial condition or illness.

I am a mother before anything & everything else.I have two boys that are my world. My oldest will be 3 in November & my youngest is almost a year old. I am a full time mom, & plan on being out of school before my oldest starts school.

By obtaining more scholarships along my college journey, I can use this to complete school faster & with less financial burdens. In my mind - me bettering myself &opening up more opportunities for myself in the future, is me trying to do, or be "better" for my kids to be able to do as well as possible, or have more opportunities opened up to them, as a result of my choices and hard work. It's my ultimate goal to be the best person I can be so my kids can want better for them self.

After I am awarded my Bachelor's degree I plan on going back to school to earn a bachelor's in psychology. I currently am working on Bachelors degree in Technical Management with Criminal Justice as my major & Psychology as a minor.

Forensic Psychologist, that is the ultimate career I am aiming to obtain. I recently have became very interesting in becoming an online college professor later in life. I think this is the career I will enter into after I retire from being a forensic psychologist.

I am currently in college part-time due to my financial assistance, I would love nothing more than to be able to afford to be a full-time student, even if it's only for a semester or two. I have no outside help, & have reach my aggregated loan limits - meaning I no longer can take out any more student loans toward this undergrad degree.

I am in hope of obtaining scholarships, and switching my status from part-time to full-time. This will allow me to finish school a lot faster, as a result of that, I will be able to get a better paying job faster, and can start on my next degree and next goal.

I want to wish you all the best of luck in obtaining the scholarships offered weekly here at CollegeNet, and also wanted to say Thank You ahead of time - to those who vote for me for both taking the time to vote for me and for helping me achieve my goals.

To all my fellow Collegnetters and to Collegenet, first I would like to thank you for taking the time to view my profile and investing time to read this as well!

-If you haven't guessed yet, my name Is Maryam. I am an 18 year old, and attending Temple University for architecture. I love art, animals (Lots of posts involving animal rights and vegetarianism!), and travel.
- I am bilingual and enjoy teaching English as a second language, especially if I'm working with kids (Although I don't plan on making education my career).
- I've studied overseas, in Syria, for about 5 years, but moved back towards the end of my junior year in high school because of a breakout of civil war.(Which hopefully, some of you have heard of at least!) (If not go research it! It's all over the news!)(I pray that madness ends soon, it has been too long....)

So why do I need you votes??
- Simple enough, I am in need of financial aid, and not just loans I'll be paying back for the next 20 plus years! Who wants to be paying back student loans when their own kids are about to enter college!?

What makes me deserve your vote? (Trust me, I'm doing my best not to sound cocky... That can be a difficult task when it comes to writing these things!):
- I have a plan for my future. I know what I want to do with my life, and not only 'Hey, I want to go to college!'
- I really really want to go into architecture (as I have, and I believe in a way, it is my calling), although I'm not entirely positive what branch of architecture I want to do yet, but I have Architectural design in mind. Why architecture? It is a job that is demanded now-a-days, I love sketching and designing, and is a competitive careers, which by previous experience, I know is an environment that'll keep be motivated. I also plan to search for an internship in a firm during my junior year.
- I am grateful. I don't take things for granted, and I appreciate what I am given, no matter how small or big it may be! I know I am great need of financial help for school, and every penny is MUCH appreciated! I have worked very hard for where I am today, and I will continue to work just as hard for many many years to come.
- I want to make my mark on the world, I don't want to come and go as if I never existed. Yes, it's a fairly generic wish in the new and young generation, but why wouldn't it be?

Thank you! And may the votes be with you!

My name is Sarah. I live in Baton Rouge, LA.

I attended LSU in Baton Rouge for 5 years before transferring to LSUHSC (Health Science Center) in New Orleans to complete my undergraduate BS degree in Medical Technology in 2008. I work as a Medical Technologist at LSU-SVM (School of Veterinary Medicine), where I take care of the wonderful creatures, big and small, that show up at the doors of the SVM Clinics.

So why am I on CollegeNET?

I graduated with $30,000 in student loan debt. The scholarships I win will go towards helping me pay off the debt. I would like to go to graduate school to earn an MS, but I need to pay down the debt before I do go back to school.

I appreciate all your posts to my forums, for reading my forums, and for voting for me.

Hi all,

My name is Karlie Paschall. I am 25 years old.I got married right out of high school to my husband. We have now been married for seven years, all of which I have committed to going to school, and he has worked to help get me through school. It's been trying at times, but I have a goal of helping children and families someday. I am currently finishing up my last semester at the University of Idaho. I'll be graduating in December with my Bachelors in Child Development/Family Consumer Sciences degree. I have an 18 month old son, and another baby due in March! I am currently applying for the Masters program with Boise state in the school of Social Work. I am a busy momma, but hope someday to obtain my LCSW, and my dream is to be a child and family counselor, or work with children and families. I have just recently been accepted to work for Early Head start as an intern. It's been very eye opening so far, but hasn't turned me away from my passion. I would love help to continue with my goals, of finishing up school and moving on to graduate school. Help through this site with scholarships would most certainly complete my dream. Good luck to everyone!

Hey There, I'm Marteen :]

Thanks for stopping by here on my Profile page. I think I will start off with the fact that I am studying Electronic Media and Film here at Northern Arizona University, in Flagstaff, Arizona. I hope to one day be either on air on your local news station or radio show, or to be filming, editing, or producing movies or television shows! I love being up here with the beautiful pines, the mountains and the lovely college town we have going for us.

There are so many things that I love to do! I love to meet and talk to people, I love to dance; modern, jazz, swing, lindy hop, and I guess I'll throw hip hop in there even though I am not that good at it. I love to make crafts especially for my friends, snowboarding, eating and trying delicious food, and last but not least my favorite animal is a stingray! I spent majority of my life on the ice. I skated competitively in synchronized skating, and in singles. If there are any ice skaters out there, let me know!! I Love to talk about figure skating! :]

I am so happy that I am apart of the amazing community here on College Net and I am so blessed with the opportunity. I love all the people that are on here, and love that I am starting to make connections with them outside of cnet! Don't be shy to add me on Facebook or anything of the sort! :]

Oh I am Canadian, and trust me I have heard all the Canadian jokes that are running through your head right now! Canada is amazing and I will never be embarrassed to say that I am or to call it my hometown!

My Name is Erin. I am a mother, wife and a nurse. I love life. My posts are typically either from work related topics, my toddler/parenting and most everyday life.

I joined CollegeNet to help pay back my tons and tons of student loans. I've completed about 7 years of college but I'm not a doctor, just a nurse. I never really knew what I was doing in life or where I wanted to go, so during my journey, I racked up the student loans. Lesson learned.

Good luck to everyone. I look forward to reading everyone's forums and comments.

Hi guys,

Thanks for checking out my profile page.

I'm originally from Uganda and have been living the States for about five years. I came here to study a Bachelor's in Communications and after that I have gone on to pursue a Masters in Linguistics. Yep, I will definitely take that break and travel/gain more work experience perhaps for a year or two. It's long overdue!

I have to tell you when I first came to the US, I was immediately in awe of...the roads! Man you guys can build. Seriously. Where I come from, a "high-way" is normally three-way but most roads are two-way. You can imagine how low my jaw dropped when I drove on the I-something or other. It was terrifying but thrilling at the same time. I appreciate the hard work you put in to make your country what it is.

I have visited several states in the US but my favorite is still Virginia. Yes I have lived here since I came to this country, so my view is biased. But there is something so restful and quaint about this state in comparison to the others. Go Virginia!

I enjoy bike-riding, walking, reading and watching anything related to adventure, romance or British-drama. If you have any suggestions on the best of all these, I'm all ears! I also enjoy talking so before this turns into a full-blown monologue, I better stop here.

I hope to hear from you and thanks again for checking out my profile page.

See you in the forums!

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the voting for me and posting on my forums! I am grateful for the scholarship I have won and hope to continue to get to know you all through our forums.

A little bit about me... My name is Dessa and I have always been on the hunt for scholarships. I am attending Western Washington University (GO VIKINGS!) with a double major in History and Anthropology concentrating in Archaeology. I am also minoring in Arabic and Islamic Studies. I am really glad to have the opportunity to share my thoughts about almost any subject and have the ability to win a scholarship while doing that!

I am a teacher and a mom mostly! I have 4 awesome boys who keep me busy all of the time. We are a football family! My favorite thing to do is watch the boys play and I am lucky enough that they all have developed a love for the game as well.

I am excited to have found Cnet because aside from being mom and teaching, I am working a couple side jobs to help support my oldest son who attends the University of Washington. I have an enormous student loan debt of my own and his has been added to it recently. I don’t want him to end up in my shoes so I have helped probably way too much! Although I don’t regret attending college or helping my son chase a dream, I have created quite a debt after obtaining my second Bachelor’s degree and then my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction as an adult!

Thank you all for the votes and support in the forums! Good Luck CNetters.

I look forward to some great discussions and I appreciate insights

What a Great Site and Great People I have met. It really means a lot to me and changed my life for the better. If you are new here please stick around and give it a chance.

I consider Cnet to be a place I can talk with friends.

I wish I could say I return votes but the new system doesn’t permit that…

What I can guarantee is if you take the time to converse with me and write thoughtfully, I will most assuredly vote for you…

My Name is Eric and I am an aspiring social worker…

I have my associates in business administration
Exactly one year away from my bachelor’s in psychology
One year and a few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I have a 4.0 in all the courses I have taken over the last two years or so…

I am very happy go lucky when I can be and want to emphasize my humorous side…

If you have any questions feel free to ask me here or my email ericvictorvelez@gmail.com...

I cannot claim to have all the answers; in fact I am probably more confused and lost about life...

Once you think you are happy then it has a habit of changing… never content

“Life” the biggest four letter word I have ever said

My goal is to look, listen, and learn… so feel free to teach me, I am an apt pupil

I'm grateful to CNet and the people who have voted for me. I'm thrilled to have won CNet scholarships. CNet is the best kept secret. I've learned new things, made friends and earned scholarships the fun way on here.

I have been on cnet since the Summer before my junior year in high school. I am now a senior at Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I have a 3.9 GPA but I'm working for that 4.0. I'm majoring in Communication Sciences and Speech Disorders on the education track I'm doing my best to graduate on time, intern and go straight to grad school (an entry level position in my field requires a Master's), grad school is extremely competitive in my field-wish me luck.

My family has definitely gone through some rough times. My hero, my mother, died after fighting cancer on April 5th, 2013. She is my inspiration and you will definitely hear a lot about her on cnet.

Here is a link to my fundraising page with the American Cancer Society http://main.acsevents.org/goto/Loren_Alexander

and my fundraising page with Support Connection http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/loren-alexander/walk2013

My mini resume:
-This Summer I am interning in my field
-Last Summer I volunteered in my field at a hospital
-I volunteered helping the emotionally and physically disabled ride horses as a means of therapy
-I volunteer for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
-I am a member of National Students of Speech Language and Hearing Association on campus
-I ballroom dance

I hope to get to know all of you better through your posts (let your personality come through!). Thank you for your time and this amazing opportunity to fund my education and ward off debt from student loans!

I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education inDec. 2004 and started working with children with developmental delays as an intensive behavioral intervention (IBI) therapist in 2007. I loved my job, but because of State budgets cuts and changes to the program, I felt that it was a good time to look for new challenges before my job disappeared completely. I continued to work as an IBI therapist while working on my master's in social work at Eastern Washington University. I graduated in March, 2014 and am currently looking for work after finishing my maternity leave.

Hey there fellow CNetter!

I'm a senior in neuroscience at Boston University. I split my time between Boston and Denver (where my family lives). Originally, I'm from Portland, OR where I spent my childhood, and Central Oregon, where I spent my teenage years. So if you were to ask me which part of the world I would consider "home"... I really wouldn't have a clear answer for you! Since my semester abroad in Germany, I've wanted to explore more of the world, so I don't see myself settling down anywhere in the near future.

Besides that, I have two siblings,--a younger brother and sister--a dog (whom I love very much), and a cat that can't be bothered to greet me when I come home for vacation. Whenever I'm not studying, I tend to be reading anything you can imagine (books, news, random Wiki article) or writing fiction. I really enjoy anything with a great story--movies, TV shows, music, video games, you name it.

After college, I would really love to teach English abroad for a few years (hopefully Japan!), travel the world and erase my undergrad debt, then go back to get my master’s in education so I can teach science or English to high school students. All the while, I will be busy writing on here and writing fiction, so perhaps that can be a side career or (if I’m really lucky) I can become an author! How cool would that be?

My parents do not assist me with my tuition cost, so I have to take out large loans to cover the difference. When I graduate this spring I will have a total of $51,662 in debt, public and private, so I really need to do everything I can to pay that off as soon as possible! (before the interest makes it worse) I would really like to not to be in debt for the rest of my life.

That said, I am so grateful of all the support I have already received. I'm glad to see some old friends still around, but I'm always on the lookout to talk with someone new :)

If you have a facebook, please feel free to add me as a friend! (https://www.facebook.com/joseph.schlatter)

If you're interested in learning more about my novel I keep talking about, you can check out my tumblr where I catalogued all of my inspiration: http://writespark.tumblr.com/aboutme

See ya around and good luck with the competition!

Hey There, I'm Marteen :]

Thanks for stopping by here on my Profile page. I think I will start off with the fact that I am studying Electronic Media and Film here at Northern Arizona University, in Flagstaff, Arizona. I hope to one day be either on air on your local news station or radio show, or to be filming, editing, or producing movies or television shows! I love being up here with the beautiful pines, the mountains and the lovely college town we have going for us.

There are so many things that I love to do! I love to meet and talk to people, I love to dance; modern, jazz, swing, lindy hop, and I guess I'll throw hip hop in there even though I am not that good at it. I love to make crafts especially for my friends, snowboarding, eating and trying delicious food, and last but not least my favorite animal is a stingray! I spent majority of my life on the ice. I skated competitively in synchronized skating, and in singles. If there are any ice skaters out there, let me know!! I Love to talk about figure skating! :]

I am so happy that I am apart of the amazing community here on College Net and I am so blessed with the opportunity. I love all the people that are on here, and love that I am starting to make connections with them outside of cnet! Don't be shy to add me on Facebook or anything of the sort! :]

Oh I am Canadian, and trust me I have heard all the Canadian jokes that are running through your head right now! Canada is amazing and I will never be embarrassed to say that I am or to call it my hometown!

My Name is Erin. I am a mother, wife and a nurse. I love life. My posts are typically either from work related topics, my toddler/parenting and most everyday life.

I joined CollegeNet to help pay back my tons and tons of student loans. I've completed about 7 years of college but I'm not a doctor, just a nurse. I never really knew what I was doing in life or where I wanted to go, so during my journey, I racked up the student loans. Lesson learned.

Good luck to everyone. I look forward to reading everyone's forums and comments.

I am a teacher and a mom mostly! I have 4 awesome boys who keep me busy all of the time. We are a football family! My favorite thing to do is watch the boys play and I am lucky enough that they all have developed a love for the game as well.

I am excited to have found Cnet because aside from being mom and teaching, I am working a couple side jobs to help support my oldest son who attends the University of Washington. I have an enormous student loan debt of my own and his has been added to it recently. I don’t want him to end up in my shoes so I have helped probably way too much! Although I don’t regret attending college or helping my son chase a dream, I have created quite a debt after obtaining my second Bachelor’s degree and then my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction as an adult!

Thank you all for the votes and support in the forums! Good Luck CNetters.

I am a man of deep emotive feelings..often filled with sorrow.

please accept me for who I am...please

..I have grown tired of being an honest beggar..

...we cannot change culture. culture must change itself..

one cannot take from another that in which one does not have

~~bearlish~~spoken here

i do not wear a tutu, a funny hat (well sometimes), an umbrella..or ride a bike in a circle...


~~~driven by desire~~~ its my bearism. dont even think of using it as a screen name..understood!?!?!? dabear is a hungry sort..besides the usual nuts and berries...gotta have a little salmon..
ok...now about dabear....

"follow the evidence" (grissom) interpreted from a quote from ep220.

so call me "mr greycloud bear" if you please...or felt like the wind..or for those who know me from ages ago greatvoice (gv for short)

contrary to the gruff rough exterior and hard pounding opinions, i am a very kind, loving, eclectic person. I write as a hobby that evokes deep feelings, and have been published.i enjoy art and it's expressionism..from paintings and graphics to music and film. most people love me or hate me..isn't that life? **note** this is all to be a bit tongue in cheek. and with a bit of dry humour.

i am called a native english teacher because i teach english as a second language and my first language is english. i teach esl outside of the states.

i am also a doctoral (PhD) candidate in Adult Education. Who knows I may be your teacher one day in some other subject than English, perhaps cultural studies or something. I was a trainer before and I made people think. I used many tools in training as i do in teaching. It pays to think here too!

If you would like to vote for me here, that would be appreciated kindly! yes, you can vote for me! see the vote button!:)~

uggh research!and it won;t end!

for those who know me as "felt like the wind"...
i am who i am and that's all i can be
i am the water and the wind..my voice speaks with the crashing waves of life, and the wind is how my thoughts touch you. i am often quiet and never heard, but you know i have been there or here...

I also have motor skills issues, and though that is my issue, it also has to do with who i am and my words.

I am not one to believe in god, though I have my spirits that guide me. (there is a diff yes.)

"as we walk through this world..we will slowly see a path. it is destiny calling. follow it, and good will follow you"

I look forward to some great discussions and I appreciate insights

What a Great Site and Great People I have met. It really means a lot to me and changed my life for the better. If you are new here please stick around and give it a chance.

I consider Cnet to be a place I can talk with friends.

I wish I could say I return votes but the new system doesn’t permit that…

What I can guarantee is if you take the time to converse with me and write thoughtfully, I will most assuredly vote for you…

My Name is Eric and I am an aspiring social worker…

I have my associates in business administration
Exactly one year away from my bachelor’s in psychology
One year and a few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I have a 4.0 in all the courses I have taken over the last two years or so…

I am very happy go lucky when I can be and want to emphasize my humorous side…

If you have any questions feel free to ask me here or my email ericvictorvelez@gmail.com...

I cannot claim to have all the answers; in fact I am probably more confused and lost about life...

Once you think you are happy then it has a habit of changing… never content

“Life” the biggest four letter word I have ever said

My goal is to look, listen, and learn… so feel free to teach me, I am an apt pupil

Hi there friends! I just want to say a quick and huge thank you for all the votes, support, laughts, thoughts, and for the wonderful time you all help me have here. You are all amazing and help make this environment so great to be a part of. Truly, thank you thank you!

I want to do something different. *Evil laughing* If you don't gather from this that I'm rather creative, love to be goofy and dorky, and just love making people smile, then well..at least I tried right? But really now, I really hope this makes you smile. It's my Cnet Theme Song! Hope you like it!

Here's the lyrics! Follow or sing along if you'd like!!

"Im on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

Yeah I, I know it’s hard to imagine,
The minutes and hours we spend,
And even harder to think of,
Ideas that no one has thought of,

You say it's too hard to rank 10th
But I say give it a try,
And with all that drive you take in,
You'll be cruisin to the top,

I've had restless nights,
With thoughts of sign ins
And seeing no votes,
My heart sinks to the floor
That's when we gather strength
And our sleepy minds get overly creative.

I’m on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

If Cnet happened to never exist,
I would have no chance to write like this,
All my college bills would stack up so high
And I'd be forced to make McDonald's fries.

Oh yeah, you woke up early this morning,
With thoughts of writing a post,
But someone an hour before you,
Signed on and thought of it first,
Oh and there's two votes to be given,
Better think of them now,
Because if given last minute,
They might just move right past you.

We've had arguments,
With trolls and demands,
Now we're all best friends,
Yeah we'd like to believe but,
When we compete we're still
On our feet ready to climb up the ranks.

I’m on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

If Cnet happened to never exist,
I would have no chance to sing this song,
My days and nights would be boring and long,
And I'd be forced to sing another song.....like

"Call Me Maybe"
I love you Cnet!! "

Welcome welcome to my profile page! I'm sure you're the first in ages to visit, so don't mind the cobwebs or the fort made of ramen noodle cups.

I'm at the 6 year mark in my Architectural Doctoral program, working on some very real upper level work that will doubtless consume my life with studio projects and internships where I have to wear a tie (turns out I don't!). I've been living/sleeping on the floor of various rooms for years now, and don't really mind it, though the building does have this one rat (only one...) and he ate a muffin I'd hidden in my desk once. Bastard. Still, when you get enough sleep the classes are fun, and I'm super tight with a bunch of other huge nerds in the program too. Seriously, I'm amazed we don't wear suspenders.

After I graduate from Hogwarts, I plan on zipping about the world in a really snazzy way working for various architecture firms and getting myself a whole ton of experience. I know many good people in a few countries now that are professionals, and who knows, maybe I'll get to work for them and be all worldly while I make buildings...in the world. It would be neat, anyways. But after all that I'm going to open my own firm! Oh yes, I even have a name picked out, but it's secret. I shall bask in design work as my own boss from then on, doing architecture, music, art, graphic design, world design in games, even collaborating with my favorite game companies to help them work on new titles. Oh the joy. Sometimes I just sit and glow to myself.

Also, I like ferrets and redheads, and if you have something against either well....this town ain't big enough for the two of us and all my redheads and ferrets! I can also legitimately say that because I'm from Montana.

Oh, my "video" is me holding my thumb over the camera while an awesome quote plays from a movie. I like my anonymity just as much as V.

UPDATE

Attending practicum at CSCEC and completing my masters of architecture from Tongji in Shanghai. Working on a residential/commercial development that will redefine Qi He and a school that will be in a neighboring province and teach k-12. and this stuff will probably be built! While this is a fantastic opportunity for me and I'll be able to do a lot with this degree for the rest of my life, it's gonna run a cool 55 grand to finish the China portion of my education. In short, you can expect to see me on here for a LONG time!

I'll see y'all around soon!

Hola,a mi me encanta hablar español! :)

I'm Sarah. I am a graduate of Jacksonville University in Florida, class of 2011. I now hold degrees in both Economics and Spanish. I'm currently working as a social media manager at a local consulting firm as well as doing freelance projects in my spare time. I didn't let the lack of a stable job after graduation stop me from gaining experience and earning a living for myself. The flexibility of my job (and work) has been a real blessing.

I can't express enough how much this site has meant to me over the past 4 years. Your continued support and everything CollegeNet does for its contributors has been invaluable to me. I made it through my senior year without having to take out an extra loan - that was amazing! Now, however, I am shouldering quite a heavy student loan debt which is why I am back to actively competing to pay it all off.

I'm honestly just an ordinary girl with big dreams and a big heart for people. I love meeting new people and exploring new places. Having an open mind and a good thirst for adventure can bring new and fresh experiences that you have only dreamed of having. I love to laugh and make others laugh too. I studied abroad in Sevilla, Spain from January to May 2010 and it absolutely changed my life. I went back for a month long trip in May 2013. If you are considering a study abroad program, feel free to ask me any questions. I'd love to help!

My family has struggled with financial stability for most of my life and now my dad is dealing with some serious health problems. Right now, I am struggling to make minimum payments on the $50K+ in student loans. The majority of the loans are in my name but some are also in my mom's name. I love participating on here just for the sake of socializing and contributing to the amazing discussions, but I must say that my financial need is very dire. If you don't see me posting on here one week, I may be taking a break or having an off week. Nevertheless, I'm planning on being here for weeks and weeks, competing right alongside all of you! :-)

God bless you in your pursuit of your dreams and scholarships!

Thanks for visiting my profile! I know we'll be talking soon! :)

Hey there, I'm Jamie. :)

I want to start this off by thanking each and every one of you who has supported me these past couple of years and helped me receive scholarships from this fantastic website. I appreciate you SO much, and I will be around as much as I possibly can in order to return the favor. You are all such wonderful, deserving individuals and I enjoy every conversation I have with each one of you. I am forever grateful for your support.

If you're new to the site (welcome to CollegeNET!) or you don't know me very well, here's a little bit about myself.

First off, my username is pronounced (tee-zay). It's a word I made up when I was really, really young and it stuck. It's become a part of me, even though that sounds incredibly cheesy.

I am 22 years old, and I went Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. I majored in Graphic Design and minored in Marketing. I'm very artistic- I love to do crafts, make collages, and scrapbook. I'd rather make something than buy it. I'm known for doodling all over my notes, being a perfectionist, and having great computer skills. I think these traits are what made me decide to be a Graphic Designer, and I'm beyond excited about my choice in this career path.

Even when I'm not competing for a scholarship, I love to chat on CollegeNET, so I'm sure you'll see me around often. :)

I loved my job, but because of State budgets cuts and changes to the program, I felt that it was a good time to look for new challenges before my job disappeared completely. I continued to work as an IBI therapist while working on my master's in social work at Eastern Washington University. I graduated in March, 2014 and am currently looking for work after finishing my maternity leave.

I'm Ivanna!

I'm glad I found CollegeNet. It's given me a way to develop my thoughts and opinions and I learn so much every time I log in. Thank you to all those who respond to my forums and vote for me!

I can honestly say that I'm so glad I'm done with school. I have barely looked back. I was a 4-year residential student and loved it, but as for the course work... I'll take being a working woman over a student any day. I've been a graduate for over 2 years and now I'm paying off those loans! The profession of nursing is a good fit for me and there is endless potential for growth, but I'd love to be debt free!

I love travelling. I studied abroad during school, I've taken trips all over the U.S. and Caribbean, and have hopes of going somewhere adventurous in the near future. At this point in my life I have no desire to settle down.

I happen to be married to the sweetest, most genuine man I could've found, but that is not synonymous to "settling down" for me. I feel like my life has been even less predictable since we met and married. It's been a rewarding challenge learning what being a wife and an individual means.

I've always been thrifty, very outgoing and friendly, with very eclectic life tastes and very dedicated to my Christian faith. I love being involved with the conversations happening here at CNet! You inspire me and teach me so much!

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for stopping in to read my profile. The quick description of me is that I'm easy-going and light-hearted. I love to be outdoors, to hike and snowshoe, to write and play with words, and, nearly always, to joke around.

The not-so-quick description of me is: I am an adjunct English instructor at a local community college. My husband and I moved to this town in 2007, and since that time, we've gotten married (to each other, I mean), had two kids, adopted two dogs, bought a house, and met great friends. We live in an area with beautiful mountains, lots of apple and cherry orchards, and some really good microbrews (:

In my "past life" (before family), I got my B.A. in English, Cultural Anthropology and French. I studied abroad in France during my last semester in college which got the ball rolling for nearly a decade of overseas and domestic travel. I served in the Peace Corps twice and just loved living a sort of nomadic life.

Now that I'm settled and my children are getting a little older (not exactly out of diapers yet, but still a little older), I'm planning to get my Master's in Global and International Education via an online program which starts this fall. I'm so excited! I've wanted to do this for a very long time, and I'm beyond happy that I'm taking this huge step to make a dream come true.

I joined CollegeNET in late March 2014, and it's been a godsend. As a writer, one of the most important things I feel I can do is to simply just sit down and write every day...even if it's only for five minutes. Just get words out and on paper (or screen). With a hectic lifestyle, however, writing every day can get lost in the mix. I love CNET because it's giving me a fantastic reason and opportunity to read and write every day, and it holds me accountable for meeting my daily writing goals.

I appreciate all of your reads and votes and comments, and I'm thoroughly enjoying engaging in the topics that you create. What can I say? This is all just pretty cool!

I'm grateful to CNet and the people who have voted for me. I'm thrilled to have won CNet scholarships. CNet is the best kept secret. I've learned new things, made friends and earned scholarships the fun way on here.

I have been on cnet since the Summer before my junior year in high school. I am now a senior at Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I have a 3.9 GPA but I'm working for that 4.0. I'm majoring in Communication Sciences and Speech Disorders on the education track I'm doing my best to graduate on time, intern and go straight to grad school (an entry level position in my field requires a Master's), grad school is extremely competitive in my field-wish me luck.

My family has definitely gone through some rough times. My hero, my mother, died after fighting cancer on April 5th, 2013. She is my inspiration and you will definitely hear a lot about her on cnet.

Hello to all!

My name is Demitrios and I am a graduate of the University of Notre Dame. I am hoping to earn scholarship money to help pay off my student debt but additionally I am interested in hearing what everyone has to say and to get my thoughts out there. I appreciate any votes or comments if you like what I have written.

Hi everyone :)

My name is Cassandra. I am a licensed massage therapist, preventative health care advocate and yoga student/teacher. I work with a lot of people who are debilitated by diseases and physical impairments as well as poor attitudes and low self esteem. I am working to become a naturopathic doctor so that I can further my ability to help people in similar situations and make a difference in the health care system.

I chose a more holistic health care path, not because I do not believe in modern medicine, but I believe that our bodies have a lot of untapped and unexplored potential. Right now we have three young children who consume most of our time (and finances) but later down the road I would love further my education in neuroscience and focus on research.

I'm 37 years old. I have a BA in English with a minor in Geology from QC. I've graduated with an MS in Geology from URI.

I'm of Native American, Irish, English, German and Greek descent.

If you want to know more: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/secretlife/scientists/alexandrea-bowman/

I was lucky enough to be accepted into Sigma Xi as an undergraduate for my research & attending several conferences. I was also accepted into the CUNY Pipeline Program & the MSPHDs program.

I founded & was the president of a student chapter of both AISES & SACNAS as a graduate student. I also volunteered (& hope to continue to do so) for programs with at risk children.

I ended up on CNet because school is expensive & I have student loans to pay off from my undergraduate years ($66,000+ worth of student loans). I would like to pursue a PhD in coastal and marine processes and would like to pay off some of my student debt before moving on. I figure I need to win about 5 times each quarter in order to pay down my debt in a reasonable time frame, but that is a lot to ask of myself and CollegeNET so I just try to do my best on here.

I've met some great people here. I will stick around here for a while, even if I am not winning scholarships & when I'm out of debt I would like to remain a voter to help out the next generation of CNetters. It's about the community.

There's a CNet Members Facebook page & if you've Facebook you should join. Friend me on Facebook, I'm pretty easy to find: www.facebook.com/alexandreabowman

Update: I'm in a relationship with a great guy, finishing a journal article for publication, I moved to CT permanently. I am still looking for a job in my field and am currently a substitute teacher in CT, which I hate (it pays me less than I made at my last job). My boyfriend and I plan to get married before January, so look for that engagement forum.

Hey there fellow CNetter!

I'm a senior in neuroscience at Boston University. I split my time between Boston and Denver (where my family lives). Originally, I'm from Portland, OR where I spent my childhood, and Central Oregon, where I spent my teenage years. So if you were to ask me which part of the world I would consider "home"... I really wouldn't have a clear answer for you! Since my semester abroad in Germany, I've wanted to explore more of the world, so I don't see myself settling down anywhere in the near future.

Besides that, I have two siblings,--a younger brother and sister--a dog (whom I love very much), and a cat that can't be bothered to greet me when I come home for vacation. Whenever I'm not studying, I tend to be reading anything you can imagine (books, news, random Wiki article) or writing fiction. I really enjoy anything with a great story--movies, TV shows, music, video games, you name it.

After college, I would really love to teach English abroad for a few years (hopefully Japan!), travel the world and erase my undergrad debt, then go back to get my master’s in education so I can teach science or English to high school students. All the while, I will be busy writing on here and writing fiction, so perhaps that can be a side career or (if I’m really lucky) I can become an author! How cool would that be?

My parents do not assist me with my tuition cost, so I have to take out large loans to cover the difference. When I graduate this spring I will have a total of $51,662 in debt, public and private, so I really need to do everything I can to pay that off as soon as possible! (before the interest makes it worse) I would really like to not to be in debt for the rest of my life.

That said, I am so grateful of all the support I have already received. I'm glad to see some old friends still around, but I'm always on the lookout to talk with someone new :)

If you have a facebook, please feel free to add me as a friend! (https://www.facebook.com/joseph.schlatter)

If you're interested in learning more about my novel I keep talking about, you can check out my tumblr where I catalogued all of my inspiration: http://writespark.tumblr.com/aboutme

See ya around and good luck with the competition!

To all my fellow Collegnetters and to Collegenet, first I would like to thank you for taking the time to view my profile and investing time to read this as well!

-If you haven't guessed yet, my name Is Maryam. I am an 18 year old, and attending Temple University for architecture. I love art, animals (Lots of posts involving animal rights and vegetarianism!), and travel.
- I am bilingual and enjoy teaching English as a second language, especially if I'm working with kids (Although I don't plan on making education my career).
- I've studied overseas, in Syria, for about 5 years, but moved back towards the end of my junior year in high school because of a breakout of civil war.(Which hopefully, some of you have heard of at least!) (If not go research it! It's all over the news!)(I pray that madness ends soon, it has been too long....)

So why do I need you votes??
- Simple enough, I am in need of financial aid, and not just loans I'll be paying back for the next 20 plus years! Who wants to be paying back student loans when their own kids are about to enter college!?

What makes me deserve your vote? (Trust me, I'm doing my best not to sound cocky... That can be a difficult task when it comes to writing these things!):
- I have a plan for my future. I know what I want to do with my life, and not only 'Hey, I want to go to college!'
- I really really want to go into architecture (as I have, and I believe in a way, it is my calling), although I'm not entirely positive what branch of architecture I want to do yet, but I have Architectural design in mind. Why architecture? It is a job that is demanded now-a-days, I love sketching and designing, and is a competitive careers, which by previous experience, I know is an environment that'll keep be motivated. I also plan to search for an internship in a firm during my junior year.
- I am grateful. I don't take things for granted, and I appreciate what I am given, no matter how small or big it may be! I know I am great need of financial help for school, and every penny is MUCH appreciated! I have worked very hard for where I am today, and I will continue to work just as hard for many many years to come.
- I want to make my mark on the world, I don't want to come and go as if I never existed. Yes, it's a fairly generic wish in the new and young generation, but why wouldn't it be?

Thank you! And may the votes be with you!

I'm Teresa, and I have been participating on CollegeNet since May of 2013. I'm so glad that I found this site through a good friend of mine. CollegeNet has truly changed my life! If you are just perusing through the site trying to figure out if CollegeNet is something you want to do, I encourage you to give it a try! It takes a lot of dedication and work, but in the end it will pay off and you will learn so much from a very diverse group of wonderful people! I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer System Technologies in December of 2012. CollegeNet has helped me pay off 25% of my total student loan debt so far! Whoohoo!

Some things I like to do outside of work and Collegenet is chillin with my puppy Russle and spittin rhymes. He is aspiring to be a psychologist someday but will probably never achieve it since he refuses to get a job, or learn how to read. He’s such a free loader! I reside in Bloomington, Illinois, which is the 17th geekiest place to live according to Yahoo! News. It’s probably a good thing that I’m surrounded by my fellow geeks, because as you can imagine from my major, I am a total geek! ;) I also like to do at home arts and crafts projects, work out at the gym, and try out new recipes! I hope my profile was exciting as you hoped it to be, cause that’s all I got for ya!

Thanks for taking the time to read :D

My name is Sarah. I live in Baton Rouge, LA.

I attended LSU in Baton Rouge for 5 years before transferring to LSUHSC (Health Science Center) in New Orleans to complete my undergraduate BS degree in Medical Technology in 2008. I work as a Medical Technologist at LSU-SVM (School of Veterinary Medicine), where I take care of the wonderful creatures, big and small, that show up at the doors of the SVM Clinics.

So why am I on CollegeNET?

I graduated with $30,000 in student loan debt. The scholarships I win will go towards helping me pay off the debt. I would like to go to graduate school to earn an MS, but I need to pay down the debt before I do go back to school.

I appreciate all your posts to my forums, for reading my forums, and for voting for me.

I am grateful for those of you who have voted for me and for those just getting to know me. So thank you for visiting my profile.This has been a fascinating experience.

About me: Starting a new phase of my life: kids are grown, happily remarried, just accepted to a doctoral program. I will be coming up with some creative ideas to pay for it. I have received a small amount of scholarship $. But I am helping my kids pay for their first degrees before I can justify paying for my third. So, CNETers I need you. We need each other.

Love to dance, throw parties, eat out, work hard, hang with friends, and be with my dog!!

I will figure out how to fix my video so you can see me and then I can say hi personally!

Hi guys,

Thanks for checking out my profile page.

I'm originally from Uganda and have been living the States for about five years. I came here to study a Bachelor's in Communications and after that I have gone on to pursue a Masters in Linguistics. Yep, I will definitely take that break and travel/gain more work experience perhaps for a year or two. It's long overdue!

I have to tell you when I first came to the US, I was immediately in awe of...the roads! Man you guys can build. Seriously. Where I come from, a "high-way" is normally three-way but most roads are two-way. You can imagine how low my jaw dropped when I drove on the I-something or other. It was terrifying but thrilling at the same time. I appreciate the hard work you put in to make your country what it is.

I have visited several states in the US but my favorite is still Virginia. Yes I have lived here since I came to this country, so my view is biased. But there is something so restful and quaint about this state in comparison to the others. Go Virginia!

I enjoy bike-riding, walking, reading and watching anything related to adventure, romance or British-drama. If you have any suggestions on the best of all these, I'm all ears! I also enjoy talking so before this turns into a full-blown monologue, I better stop here.

I hope to hear from you and thanks again for checking out my profile page.

See you in the forums!

Hello all. So I was in a scholarship hunt and tumbled across this lovely site. A chance to win a scholarship while constantly being able to share your thoughts is a win/win for me.
Anyway, I am currently pursuing a nursing career and let's face it, it's no cheap ride. However, I plan to get through all the grueling schooling and expensive fees no matter how difficult it might be.

I look forward to some great discussions and I appreciate insights

What a Great Site and Great People I have met. It really means a lot to me and changed my life for the better. If you are new here please stick around and give it a chance.

I consider Cnet to be a place I can talk with friends.

I wish I could say I return votes but the new system doesn’t permit that…

What I can guarantee is if you take the time to converse with me and write thoughtfully, I will most assuredly vote for you…

My Name is Eric and I am an aspiring social worker…

I have my associates in business administration
Exactly one year away from my bachelor’s in psychology
One year and a few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I have a 4.0 in all the courses I have taken over the last two years or so…

I am very happy go lucky when I can be and want to emphasize my humorous side…

If you have any questions feel free to ask me here or my email ericvictorvelez@gmail.com...

I cannot claim to have all the answers; in fact I am probably more confused and lost about life...

Once you think you are happy then it has a habit of changing… never content

“Life” the biggest four letter word I have ever said

My goal is to look, listen, and learn… so feel free to teach me, I am an apt pupil

Welcome welcome to my profile page! I'm sure you're the first in ages to visit, so don't mind the cobwebs or the fort made of ramen noodle cups.

I'm at the 6 year mark in my Architectural Doctoral program, working on some very real upper level work that will doubtless consume my life with studio projects and internships where I have to wear a tie (turns out I don't!). I've been living/sleeping on the floor of various rooms for years now, and don't really mind it, though the building does have this one rat (only one...) and he ate a muffin I'd hidden in my desk once. Bastard. Still, when you get enough sleep the classes are fun, and I'm super tight with a bunch of other huge nerds in the program too. Seriously, I'm amazed we don't wear suspenders.

After I graduate from Hogwarts, I plan on zipping about the world in a really snazzy way working for various architecture firms and getting myself a whole ton of experience. I know many good people in a few countries now that are professionals, and who knows, maybe I'll get to work for them and be all worldly while I make buildings...in the world. It would be neat, anyways. But after all that I'm going to open my own firm! Oh yes, I even have a name picked out, but it's secret. I shall bask in design work as my own boss from then on, doing architecture, music, art, graphic design, world design in games, even collaborating with my favorite game companies to help them work on new titles. Oh the joy. Sometimes I just sit and glow to myself.

Also, I like ferrets and redheads, and if you have something against either well....this town ain't big enough for the two of us and all my redheads and ferrets! I can also legitimately say that because I'm from Montana.

Oh, my "video" is me holding my thumb over the camera while an awesome quote plays from a movie. I like my anonymity just as much as V.

UPDATE

Attending practicum at CSCEC and completing my masters of architecture from Tongji in Shanghai. Working on a residential/commercial development that will redefine Qi He and a school that will be in a neighboring province and teach k-12. and this stuff will probably be built! While this is a fantastic opportunity for me and I'll be able to do a lot with this degree for the rest of my life, it's gonna run a cool 55 grand to finish the China portion of my education. In short, you can expect to see me on here for a LONG time!

I'll see y'all around soon!

Hey there, I'm Jamie. :)

I want to start this off by thanking each and every one of you who has supported me these past couple of years and helped me receive scholarships from this fantastic website. I appreciate you SO much, and I will be around as much as I possibly can in order to return the favor. You are all such wonderful, deserving individuals and I enjoy every conversation I have with each one of you. I am forever grateful for your support.

If you're new to the site (welcome to CollegeNET!) or you don't know me very well, here's a little bit about myself.

First off, my username is pronounced (tee-zay). It's a word I made up when I was really, really young and it stuck. It's become a part of me, even though that sounds incredibly cheesy.

I am 22 years old, and I went Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. I majored in Graphic Design and minored in Marketing. I'm very artistic- I love to do crafts, make collages, and scrapbook. I'd rather make something than buy it. I'm known for doodling all over my notes, being a perfectionist, and having great computer skills. I think these traits are what made me decide to be a Graphic Designer, and I'm beyond excited about my choice in this career path.

Even when I'm not competing for a scholarship, I love to chat on CollegeNET, so I'm sure you'll see me around often. :)

Hi all,

My name is Karlie Paschall. I am 25 years old.I got married right out of high school to my husband. We have now been married for seven years, all of which I have committed to going to school, and he has worked to help get me through school. It's been trying at times, but I have a goal of helping children and families someday. I am currently finishing up my last semester at the University of Idaho. I'll be graduating in December with my Bachelors in Child Development/Family Consumer Sciences degree. I have an 18 month old son, and another baby due in March! I am currently applying for the Masters program with Boise state in the school of Social Work. I am a busy momma, but hope someday to obtain my LCSW, and my dream is to be a child and family counselor, or work with children and families. I have just recently been accepted to work for Early Head start as an intern. It's been very eye opening so far, but hasn't turned me away from my passion. I would love help to continue with my goals, of finishing up school and moving on to graduate school. Help through this site with scholarships would most certainly complete my dream. Good luck to everyone!

I will be attending a Clinical Psychology Psy.D. (forensic concentration) program this fall with the intention of establishing a career in forensic psychology. I wish to gain experience and knowledge in various areas including psychological autopsies, police psychology, correctional psychology, negotiations, malingering, suicide intervention and prevention, profiling, crisis intervention, competency issues and evaluations. I also aspire to research psychological autopsies more in depth, as they can be a very valuable tool once more is established about them.

I am very appreciative and grateful for everyone who has voted for me! Thank you :)

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for stopping in to read my profile. The quick description of me is that I'm easy-going and light-hearted. I love to be outdoors, to hike and snowshoe, to write and play with words, and, nearly always, to joke around.

The not-so-quick description of me is: I am an adjunct English instructor at a local community college. My husband and I moved to this town in 2007, and since that time, we've gotten married (to each other, I mean), had two kids, adopted two dogs, bought a house, and met great friends. We live in an area with beautiful mountains, lots of apple and cherry orchards, and some really good microbrews (:

In my "past life" (before family), I got my B.A. in English, Cultural Anthropology and French. I studied abroad in France during my last semester in college which got the ball rolling for nearly a decade of overseas and domestic travel. I served in the Peace Corps twice and just loved living a sort of nomadic life.

Now that I'm settled and my children are getting a little older (not exactly out of diapers yet, but still a little older), I'm planning to get my Master's in Global and International Education via an online program which starts this fall. I'm so excited! I've wanted to do this for a very long time, and I'm beyond happy that I'm taking this huge step to make a dream come true.

I joined CollegeNET in late March 2014, and it's been a godsend. As a writer, one of the most important things I feel I can do is to simply just sit down and write every day...even if it's only for five minutes. Just get words out and on paper (or screen). With a hectic lifestyle, however, writing every day can get lost in the mix. I love CNET because it's giving me a fantastic reason and opportunity to read and write every day, and it holds me accountable for meeting my daily writing goals.

I appreciate all of your reads and votes and comments, and I'm thoroughly enjoying engaging in the topics that you create. What can I say? This is all just pretty cool!

My goal is to look, listen, and learn… so feel free to teach me, I am an apt pupil

I'm grateful to CNet and the people who have voted for me. I'm thrilled to have won CNet scholarships. CNet is the best kept secret. I've learned new things, made friends and earned scholarships the fun way on here.

I have been on cnet since the Summer before my junior year in high school. I am now a senior at Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I have a 3.9 GPA but I'm working for that 4.0. I'm majoring in Communication Sciences and Speech Disorders on the education track I'm doing my best to graduate on time, intern and go straight to grad school (an entry level position in my field requires a Master's), grad school is extremely competitive in my field-wish me luck.

My family has definitely gone through some rough times. My hero, my mother, died after fighting cancer on April 5th, 2013. She is my inspiration and you will definitely hear a lot about her on cnet.

Welcome welcome to my profile page! I'm sure you're the first in ages to visit, so don't mind the cobwebs or the fort made of ramen noodle cups.

I'm at the 6 year mark in my Architectural Doctoral program, working on some very real upper level work that will doubtless consume my life with studio projects and internships where I have to wear a tie (turns out I don't!). I've been living/sleeping on the floor of various rooms for years now, and don't really mind it, though the building does have this one rat (only one...) and he ate a muffin I'd hidden in my desk once. Bastard. Still, when you get enough sleep the classes are fun, and I'm super tight with a bunch of other huge nerds in the program too. Seriously, I'm amazed we don't wear suspenders.

After I graduate from Hogwarts, I plan on zipping about the world in a really snazzy way working for various architecture firms and getting myself a whole ton of experience. I know many good people in a few countries now that are professionals, and who knows, maybe I'll get to work for them and be all worldly while I make buildings...in the world. It would be neat, anyways. But after all that I'm going to open my own firm! Oh yes, I even have a name picked out, but it's secret. I shall bask in design work as my own boss from then on, doing architecture, music, art, graphic design, world design in games, even collaborating with my favorite game companies to help them work on new titles. Oh the joy. Sometimes I just sit and glow to myself.

Also, I like ferrets and redheads, and if you have something against either well....this town ain't big enough for the two of us and all my redheads and ferrets! I can also legitimately say that because I'm from Montana.

Oh, my "video" is me holding my thumb over the camera while an awesome quote plays from a movie. I like my anonymity just as much as V.

UPDATE

Attending practicum at CSCEC and completing my masters of architecture from Tongji in Shanghai. Working on a residential/commercial development that will redefine Qi He and a school that will be in a neighboring province and teach k-12. and this stuff will probably be built! While this is a fantastic opportunity for me and I'll be able to do a lot with this degree for the rest of my life, it's gonna run a cool 55 grand to finish the China portion of my education. In short, you can expect to see me on here for a LONG time!

I'll see y'all around soon!

I'm glad I found CollegeNet. It's given me a way to develop my thoughts and opinions and I learn so much every time I log in. Thank you to all those who respond to my forums and vote for me!

I can honestly say that I'm so glad I'm done with school. I have barely looked back. I was a 4-year residential student and loved it, but as for the course work... I'll take being a working woman over a student any day. I've been a graduate for over 2 years and now I'm paying off those loans! The profession of nursing is a good fit for me and there is endless potential for growth, but I'd love to be debt free!

I love travelling. I studied abroad during school, I've taken trips all over the U.S. and Caribbean, and have hopes of going somewhere adventurous in the near future. At this point in my life I have no desire to settle down.

I happen to be married to the sweetest, most genuine man I could've found, but that is not synonymous to "settling down" for me. I feel like my life has been even less predictable since we met and married. It's been a rewarding challenge learning what being a wife and an individual means.

I've always been thrifty, very outgoing and friendly, with very eclectic life tastes and very dedicated to my Christian faith. I love being involved with the conversations happening here at CNet! You inspire me and teach me so much!

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for stopping in to read my profile. The quick description of me is that I'm easy-going and light-hearted. I love to be outdoors, to hike and snowshoe, to write and play with words, and, nearly always, to joke around.

The not-so-quick description of me is: I am an adjunct English instructor at a local community college. My husband and I moved to this town in 2007, and since that time, we've gotten married (to each other, I mean), had two kids, adopted two dogs, bought a house, and met great friends. We live in an area with beautiful mountains, lots of apple and cherry orchards, and some really good microbrews (:

In my "past life" (before family), I got my B.A. in English, Cultural Anthropology and French. I studied abroad in France during my last semester in college which got the ball rolling for nearly a decade of overseas and domestic travel. I served in the Peace Corps twice and just loved living a sort of nomadic life.

Now that I'm settled and my children are getting a little older (not exactly out of diapers yet, but still a little older), I'm planning to get my Master's in Global and International Education via an online program which starts this fall. I'm so excited! I've wanted to do this for a very long time, and I'm beyond happy that I'm taking this huge step to make a dream come true.

I am a man of deep emotive feelings..often filled with sorrow.

please accept me for who I am...please

..I have grown tired of being an honest beggar..

...we cannot change culture. culture must change itself..

one cannot take from another that in which one does not have

~~bearlish~~spoken here

i do not wear a tutu, a funny hat (well sometimes), an umbrella..or ride a bike in a circle...


~~~driven by desire~~~ its my bearism. dont even think of using it as a screen name..understood!?!?!? dabear is a hungry sort..besides the usual nuts and berries...gotta have a little salmon..
ok...now about dabear....

"follow the evidence" (grissom) interpreted from a quote from ep220.

so call me "mr greycloud bear" if you please...or felt like the wind..or for those who know me from ages ago greatvoice (gv for short)

contrary to the gruff rough exterior and hard pounding opinions, i am a very kind, loving, eclectic person. I write as a hobby that evokes deep feelings, and have been published.i enjoy art and it's expressionism..from paintings and graphics to music and film. most people love me or hate me..isn't that life? **note** this is all to be a bit tongue in cheek. and with a bit of dry humour.

i am called a native english teacher because i teach english as a second language and my first language is english. i teach esl outside of the states.

i am also a doctoral (PhD) candidate in Adult Education. Who knows I may be your teacher one day in some other subject than English, perhaps cultural studies or something. I was a trainer before and I made people think. I used many tools in training as i do in teaching. It pays to think here too!

If you would like to vote for me here, that would be appreciated kindly! yes, you can vote for me! see the vote button!:)~

uggh research!and it won;t end!

for those who know me as "felt like the wind"...
i am who i am and that's all i can be
i am the water and the wind..my voice speaks with the crashing waves of life, and the wind is how my thoughts touch you. i am often quiet and never heard, but you know i have been there or here...

I also have motor skills issues, and though that is my issue, it also has to do with who i am and my words.

I am not one to believe in god, though I have my spirits that guide me. (there is a diff yes.)

"as we walk through this world..we will slowly see a path. it is destiny calling. follow it, and good will follow you"

My name is Nichole, I am 23 years old. I currently am in college aiming for a Bachelor's degree in Technical Management with a concentration in Criminal Justice & psychology. I am also a CEO/Founder of an aspiring non-profit organization, that raise's awareness & provides support for those affected by any type of facial condition or illness.

I am a mother before anything & everything else.I have two boys that are my world. My oldest will be 3 in November & my youngest is almost a year old. I am a full time mom, & plan on being out of school before my oldest starts school.

By obtaining more scholarships along my college journey, I can use this to complete school faster & with less financial burdens. In my mind - me bettering myself &opening up more opportunities for myself in the future, is me trying to do, or be "better" for my kids to be able to do as well as possible, or have more opportunities opened up to them, as a result of my choices and hard work. It's my ultimate goal to be the best person I can be so my kids can want better for them self.

After I am awarded my Bachelor's degree I plan on going back to school to earn a bachelor's in psychology. I currently am working on Bachelors degree in Technical Management with Criminal Justice as my major & Psychology as a minor.

Forensic Psychologist, that is the ultimate career I am aiming to obtain. I recently have became very interesting in becoming an online college professor later in life. I think this is the career I will enter into after I retire from being a forensic psychologist.

I am currently in college part-time due to my financial assistance, I would love nothing more than to be able to afford to be a full-time student, even if it's only for a semester or two. I have no outside help, & have reach my aggregated loan limits - meaning I no longer can take out any more student loans toward this undergrad degree.

I am in hope of obtaining scholarships, and switching my status from part-time to full-time. This will allow me to finish school a lot faster, as a result of that, I will be able to get a better paying job faster, and can start on my next degree and next goal.

I want to wish you all the best of luck in obtaining the scholarships offered weekly here at CollegeNet, and also wanted to say Thank You ahead of time - to those who vote for me for both taking the time to vote for me and for helping me achieve my goals.

Thanks to CollegeNet and my experiences this year, I am on a grand adventure that will conclude with me working for Saturday Night Live just on Weekend Update like Tina Fey did, having my own show, doing arts admin work at a theatre, and teaching improvisation comedy. I am most passionate about developing a curriculum for Improv and Mental Health Maintenance.


Best wishes to everyone!

My Name is Erin. I am a mother, wife and a nurse. I love life. My posts are typically either from work related topics, my toddler/parenting and most everyday life.

I joined CollegeNet to help pay back my tons and tons of student loans. I've completed about 7 years of college but I'm not a doctor, just a nurse. I never really knew what I was doing in life or where I wanted to go, so during my journey, I racked up the student loans. Lesson learned.

Good luck to everyone. I look forward to reading everyone's forums and comments.

I am grateful for those of you who have voted for me and for those just getting to know me. So thank you for visiting my profile.This has been a fascinating experience.

About me: Starting a new phase of my life: kids are grown, happily remarried, just accepted to a doctoral program. I will be coming up with some creative ideas to pay for it. I have received a small amount of scholarship $. But I am helping my kids pay for their first degrees before I can justify paying for my third. So, CNETers I need you. We need each other.

Love to dance, throw parties, eat out, work hard, hang with friends, and be with my dog!!

I will figure out how to fix my video so you can see me and then I can say hi personally!

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for stopping in to read my profile. The quick description of me is that I'm easy-going and light-hearted. I love to be outdoors, to hike and snowshoe, to write and play with words, and, nearly always, to joke around.

The not-so-quick description of me is: I am an adjunct English instructor at a local community college. My husband and I moved to this town in 2007, and since that time, we've gotten married (to each other, I mean), had two kids, adopted two dogs, bought a house, and met great friends. We live in an area with beautiful mountains, lots of apple and cherry orchards, and some really good microbrews (:

In my "past life" (before family), I got my B.A. in English, Cultural Anthropology and French. I studied abroad in France during my last semester in college which got the ball rolling for nearly a decade of overseas and domestic travel. I served in the Peace Corps twice and just loved living a sort of nomadic life.

Now that I'm settled and my children are getting a little older (not exactly out of diapers yet, but still a little older), I'm planning to get my Master's in Global and International Education via an online program which starts this fall. I'm so excited! I've wanted to do this for a very long time, and I'm beyond happy that I'm taking this huge step to make a dream come true.

I joined CollegeNET in late March 2014, and it's been a godsend. As a writer, one of the most important things I feel I can do is to simply just sit down and write every day...even if it's only for five minutes. Just get words out and on paper (or screen). With a hectic lifestyle, however, writing every day can get lost in the mix. I love CNET because it's giving me a fantastic reason and opportunity to read and write every day, and it holds me accountable for meeting my daily writing goals.

I appreciate all of your reads and votes and comments, and I'm thoroughly enjoying engaging in the topics that you create. What can I say? This is all just pretty cool!

Welcome welcome to my profile page! I'm sure you're the first in ages to visit, so don't mind the cobwebs or the fort made of ramen noodle cups.

I'm at the 6 year mark in my Architectural Doctoral program, working on some very real upper level work that will doubtless consume my life with studio projects and internships where I have to wear a tie (turns out I don't!). I've been living/sleeping on the floor of various rooms for years now, and don't really mind it, though the building does have this one rat (only one...) and he ate a muffin I'd hidden in my desk once. Bastard. Still, when you get enough sleep the classes are fun, and I'm super tight with a bunch of other huge nerds in the program too. Seriously, I'm amazed we don't wear suspenders.

After I graduate from Hogwarts, I plan on zipping about the world in a really snazzy way working for various architecture firms and getting myself a whole ton of experience. I know many good people in a few countries now that are professionals, and who knows, maybe I'll get to work for them and be all worldly while I make buildings...in the world. It would be neat, anyways. But after all that I'm going to open my own firm! Oh yes, I even have a name picked out, but it's secret. I shall bask in design work as my own boss from then on, doing architecture, music, art, graphic design, world design in games, even collaborating with my favorite game companies to help them work on new titles. Oh the joy. Sometimes I just sit and glow to myself.

Also, I like ferrets and redheads, and if you have something against either well....this town ain't big enough for the two of us and all my redheads and ferrets! I can also legitimately say that because I'm from Montana.

Oh, my "video" is me holding my thumb over the camera while an awesome quote plays from a movie. I like my anonymity just as much as V.

UPDATE

Attending practicum at CSCEC and completing my masters of architecture from Tongji in Shanghai. Working on a residential/commercial development that will redefine Qi He and a school that will be in a neighboring province and teach k-12. and this stuff will probably be built! While this is a fantastic opportunity for me and I'll be able to do a lot with this degree for the rest of my life, it's gonna run a cool 55 grand to finish the China portion of my education. In short, you can expect to see me on here for a LONG time!

I'll see y'all around soon!

Hola,a mi me encanta hablar español! :)

I'm Sarah. I am a graduate of Jacksonville University in Florida, class of 2011. I now hold degrees in both Economics and Spanish. I'm currently working as a social media manager at a local consulting firm as well as doing freelance projects in my spare time. I didn't let the lack of a stable job after graduation stop me from gaining experience and earning a living for myself. The flexibility of my job (and work) has been a real blessing.

I can't express enough how much this site has meant to me over the past 4 years. Your continued support and everything CollegeNet does for its contributors has been invaluable to me. I made it through my senior year without having to take out an extra loan - that was amazing! Now, however, I am shouldering quite a heavy student loan debt which is why I am back to actively competing to pay it all off.

I'm honestly just an ordinary girl with big dreams and a big heart for people. I love meeting new people and exploring new places. Having an open mind and a good thirst for adventure can bring new and fresh experiences that you have only dreamed of having. I love to laugh and make others laugh too. I studied abroad in Sevilla, Spain from January to May 2010 and it absolutely changed my life. I went back for a month long trip in May 2013. If you are considering a study abroad program, feel free to ask me any questions. I'd love to help!

My family has struggled with financial stability for most of my life and now my dad is dealing with some serious health problems. Right now, I am struggling to make minimum payments on the $50K+ in student loans. The majority of the loans are in my name but some are also in my mom's name. I love participating on here just for the sake of socializing and contributing to the amazing discussions, but I must say that my financial need is very dire. If you don't see me posting on here one week, I may be taking a break or having an off week. Nevertheless, I'm planning on being here for weeks and weeks, competing right alongside all of you! :-)

God bless you in your pursuit of your dreams and scholarships!

Thanks for visiting my profile! I know we'll be talking soon! :)

I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education inDec. 2004 and started working with children with developmental delays as an intensive behavioral intervention (IBI) therapist in 2007. I loved my job, but because of State budgets cuts and changes to the program, I felt that it was a good time to look for new challenges before my job disappeared completely. I continued to work as an IBI therapist while working on my master's in social work at Eastern Washington University. I graduated in March, 2014 and am currently looking for work after finishing my maternity leave.

I live in northern Idaho with my husband of 16 years and our three children: a girl who is 7, a boy who is 5, and our baby girl who was born in May, 2014.

I'm Teresa, and I have been participating on CollegeNet since May of 2013. I'm so glad that I found this site through a good friend of mine. CollegeNet has truly changed my life! If you are just perusing through the site trying to figure out if CollegeNet is something you want to do, I encourage you to give it a try! It takes a lot of dedication and work, but in the end it will pay off and you will learn so much from a very diverse group of wonderful people! I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer System Technologies in December of 2012. CollegeNet has helped me pay off 25% of my total student loan debt so far! Whoohoo!

Some things I like to do outside of work and Collegenet is chillin with my puppy Russle and spittin rhymes. He is aspiring to be a psychologist someday but will probably never achieve it since he refuses to get a job, or learn how to read. He’s such a free loader! I reside in Bloomington, Illinois, which is the 17th geekiest place to live according to Yahoo! News. It’s probably a good thing that I’m surrounded by my fellow geeks, because as you can imagine from my major, I am a total geek! ;) I also like to do at home arts and crafts projects, work out at the gym, and try out new recipes! I hope my profile was exciting as you hoped it to be, cause that’s all I got for ya!

Thanks for taking the time to read :D

Hi all,

My name is Karlie Paschall. I am 25 years old.I got married right out of high school to my husband. We have now been married for seven years, all of which I have committed to going to school, and he has worked to help get me through school. It's been trying at times, but I have a goal of helping children and families someday. I am currently finishing up my last semester at the University of Idaho. I'll be graduating in December with my Bachelors in Child Development/Family Consumer Sciences degree. I have an 18 month old son, and another baby due in March! I am currently applying for the Masters program with Boise state in the school of Social Work. I am a busy momma, but hope someday to obtain my LCSW, and my dream is to be a child and family counselor, or work with children and families. I have just recently been accepted to work for Early Head start as an intern. It's been very eye opening so far, but hasn't turned me away from my passion. I would love help to continue with my goals, of finishing up school and moving on to graduate school. Help through this site with scholarships would most certainly complete my dream. Good luck to everyone!

Hi Peeps!

My name is Paige, I have many nick names, Miss Paige, Paigey, Piggy... keeps going ;)

I am studying at Arizona State University, my major is Public Services and Public Policy with a focus in Social Services Delivery. I start this major in August 2014.

I am hoping that I can start a non-profit of some sort, I want to help children obtain more rights all around the world. It seems like it is something that is extremely lacking in society! I hope that I can obtain a law degree to do so :)

I am here on collegenet to get some writing experience and get some scholarship money to do my passion. I am so thankful for my friend who told me about this site, it has really helped take some stress off my shoulders!

THANK YOU supporters!

"Nursing is where I am the happiest. Life is not nearly as precious as it is when you are happy and sharing it with others. That is the ultimate success."

Hi everyone! My name is Chi and I am from Long Island, New York. I graduated from Stony Brook University in May of 2013 and am currently working at two residential facilities that house individuals with developmental disabilities.

One of the greatest joys in my life is being able to make others smile and for the past two years, I have been able to do that at work. Now, I would like to further my career and be of more assistant and meaning to these individuals that I call family now.

I will be going to Northeastern University's Direct Entry nursing, specializing in psychiatric and mental health this upcoming Fall. I am moving to Boston, Massachusetts completely on my own. This is the first time I will be away from my loving parents who have supported me my entire college career.

Please help me achieve my happiness! I promise you I will make one heck of a nurse :)

I look forward to some great discussions and I appreciate insights

What a Great Site and Great People I have met. It really means a lot to me and changed my life for the better. If you are new here please stick around and give it a chance.

I consider Cnet to be a place I can talk with friends.

I wish I could say I return votes but the new system doesn’t permit that…

What I can guarantee is if you take the time to converse with me and write thoughtfully, I will most assuredly vote for you…

My Name is Eric and I am an aspiring social worker…

I have my associates in business administration
Exactly one year away from my bachelor’s in psychology
One year and a few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I have a 4.0 in all the courses I have taken over the last two years or so…

I am very happy go lucky when I can be and want to emphasize my humorous side…

If you have any questions feel free to ask me here or my email ericvictorvelez@gmail.com...

I cannot claim to have all the answers; in fact I am probably more confused and lost about life...

Once you think you are happy then it has a habit of changing… never content

“Life” the biggest four letter word I have ever said

My goal is to look, listen, and learn… so feel free to teach me, I am an apt pupil

I'm grateful to CNet and the people who have voted for me. I'm thrilled to have won CNet scholarships. CNet is the best kept secret. I've learned new things, made friends and earned scholarships the fun way on here.

I have been on cnet since the Summer before my junior year in high school. I am now a senior at Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I have a 3.9 GPA but I'm working for that 4.0. I'm majoring in Communication Sciences and Speech Disorders on the education track I'm doing my best to graduate on time, intern and go straight to grad school (an entry level position in my field requires a Master's), grad school is extremely competitive in my field-wish me luck.

My family has definitely gone through some rough times. My hero, my mother, died after fighting cancer on April 5th, 2013. She is my inspiration and you will definitely hear a lot about her on cnet.

Welcome welcome to my profile page! I'm sure you're the first in ages to visit, so don't mind the cobwebs or the fort made of ramen noodle cups.

I'm at the 6 year mark in my Architectural Doctoral program, working on some very real upper level work that will doubtless consume my life with studio projects and internships where I have to wear a tie (turns out I don't!). I've been living/sleeping on the floor of various rooms for years now, and don't really mind it, though the building does have this one rat (only one...) and he ate a muffin I'd hidden in my desk once.

I know many good people in a few countries now that are professionals, and who knows, maybe I'll get to work for them and be all worldly while I make buildings...in the world. It would be neat, anyways. But after all that I'm going to open my own firm! Oh yes, I even have a name picked out, but it's secret. I shall bask in design work as my own boss from then on, doing architecture, music, art, graphic design, world design in games, even collaborating with my favorite game companies to help them work on new titles. Oh the joy. Sometimes I just sit and glow to myself.

Also, I like ferrets and redheads, and if you have something against either well....this town ain't big enough for the two of us and all my redheads and ferrets! I can also legitimately say that because I'm from Montana.

My name is Nichole, I am 23 years old. I currently am in college aiming for a Bachelor's degree in Technical Management with a concentration in Criminal Justice & psychology. I am also a CEO/Founder of an aspiring non-profit organization, that raise's awareness & provides support for those affected by any type of facial condition or illness.

I am a mother before anything & everything else.I have two boys that are my world. My oldest will be 3 in November & my youngest is almost a year old. I am a full time mom, & plan on being out of school before my oldest starts school.

By obtaining more scholarships along my college journey, I can use this to complete school faster & with less financial burdens. In my mind - me bettering myself &opening up more opportunities for myself in the future, is me trying to do, or be "better" for my kids to be able to do as well as possible, or have more opportunities opened up to them, as a result of my choices and hard work. It's my ultimate goal to be the best person I can be so my kids can want better for them self.

After I am awarded my Bachelor's degree I plan on going back to school to earn a bachelor's in psychology. I currently am working on Bachelors degree in Technical Management with Criminal Justice as my major & Psychology as a minor.

Forensic Psychologist, that is the ultimate career I am aiming to obtain. I recently have became very interesting in becoming an online college professor later in life. I think this is the career I will enter into after I retire from being a forensic psychologist.

I am currently in college part-time due to my financial assistance, I would love nothing more than to be able to afford to be a full-time student, even if it's only for a semester or two. I have no outside help, & have reach my aggregated loan limits - meaning I no longer can take out any more student loans toward this undergrad degree.

I am in hope of obtaining scholarships, and switching my status from part-time to full-time. This will allow me to finish school a lot faster, as a result of that, I will be able to get a better paying job faster, and can start on my next degree and next goal.

I want to wish you all the best of luck in obtaining the scholarships offered weekly here at CollegeNet, and also wanted to say Thank You ahead of time - to those who vote for me for both taking the time to vote for me and for helping me achieve my goals.

Hello Cnetters,

To start off, I am grateful to all of you for your support, inspiration, votes, information, and replies. There were some days where life stresses got the best of me and I didn’t want to post anymore, then I saw the people who voted for me and thought to myself if these candidates are supporting me to win, then I should keep going and support them back. Additionally, the friends I made on here were amazing people. They were there for me all the time, giving me advices, cheering me up, and posting to my forums. I think some of them know who they are, so thank you so much for that:)

I am a senior majoring in biology, I dream to purse a medical career. I think health is the most precious thing a human has and I will be more than happy helping people maintain or regain their health back. I immigrated with my family to the US about 6 years ago. I used every opportunity I had to enhance my English and learn more about the culture and I am thankful to god for where I am today. Many things have shaped my life, most importantly, my Christian-Orthodox beliefs, family, and culture.

This semester, I am enrolled in 15 credit hours of advanced classes. I also have 2 research projects that I am working on, on campus-work, and church. I am a Sunday school teacher for kindergarten and 1st grade kids, though they are adorable and I love the service, it takes some time to prepare for them something fun, creative and beneficial. I am in charge of the house chores that require English such as the bills, the mail, the applications...etc. I do like to be constantly busy though because I get more done; I feel more productive and learn to better manage my time.

For my financial need, I am not going to say that I need the money more than any of you. I understand we all need the money desperately so I would be much happier and more appreciative if you voted for me based on my contributions. I have always tried my best to go for my five posts a day. I worked with every minute I have in between my busy schedule. I posted on breaks and in between my classes. Even during my classes sometimes (especially my physical survey of chemistry class:)), I was checking Cnet to think about what I will write when I get home. To summarize, I worked with everything I have to contribute and give back to the Cnet community.

I don’t want to talk too much and bore you with my writing, I hope it is not too late for that:), but thank you and I wish you all the best,
Peace

To all my fellow Collegnetters and to Collegenet, first I would like to thank you for taking the time to view my profile and investing time to read this as well!

-If you haven't guessed yet, my name Is Maryam. I am an 18 year old, and attending Temple University for architecture. I love art, animals (Lots of posts involving animal rights and vegetarianism!), and travel.
- I am bilingual and enjoy teaching English as a second language, especially if I'm working with kids (Although I don't plan on making education my career).
- I've studied overseas, in Syria, for about 5 years, but moved back towards the end of my junior year in high school because of a breakout of civil war.(Which hopefully, some of you have heard of at least!) (If not go research it! It's all over the news!)(I pray that madness ends soon, it has been too long....)

So why do I need you votes??
- Simple enough, I am in need of financial aid, and not just loans I'll be paying back for the next 20 plus years! Who wants to be paying back student loans when their own kids are about to enter college!?

What makes me deserve your vote? (Trust me, I'm doing my best not to sound cocky... That can be a difficult task when it comes to writing these things!):
- I have a plan for my future. I know what I want to do with my life, and not only 'Hey, I want to go to college!'
- I really really want to go into architecture (as I have, and I believe in a way, it is my calling), although I'm not entirely positive what branch of architecture I want to do yet, but I have Architectural design in mind. Why architecture? It is a job that is demanded now-a-days, I love sketching and designing, and is a competitive careers, which by previous experience, I know is an environment that'll keep be motivated. I also plan to search for an internship in a firm during my junior year.
- I am grateful. I don't take things for granted, and I appreciate what I am given, no matter how small or big it may be! I know I am great need of financial help for school, and every penny is MUCH appreciated! I have worked very hard for where I am today, and I will continue to work just as hard for many many years to come.
- I want to make my mark on the world, I don't want to come and go as if I never existed. Yes, it's a fairly generic wish in the new and young generation, but why wouldn't it be?

Thank you! And may the votes be with you!

Hi, the Innocence Project is one of my favorite charities, thus the name. In an unjust world, the Innocence Project exonerates the falsely accused. I have two daughters in college and a student loan of my own. I enjoy reading your posts and appreciate the opportunity to contribute to the forum. Thanks everyone who votes for me! And if you don't that's ok too.

I'm glad I found CollegeNet. It's given me a way to develop my thoughts and opinions and I learn so much every time I log in. Thank you to all those who respond to my forums and vote for me!

I can honestly say that I'm so glad I'm done with school. I have barely looked back. I was a 4-year residential student and loved it, but as for the course work... I'll take being a working woman over a student any day. I've been a graduate for over 2 years and now I'm paying off those loans! The profession of nursing is a good fit for me and there is endless potential for growth, but I'd love to be debt free!

I love travelling. I studied abroad during school, I've taken trips all over the U.S. and Caribbean, and have hopes of going somewhere adventurous in the near future. At this point in my life I have no desire to settle down.

I happen to be married to the sweetest, most genuine man I could've found, but that is not synonymous to "settling down" for me. I feel like my life has been even less predictable since we met and married. It's been a rewarding challenge learning what being a wife and an individual means.

I've always been thrifty, very outgoing and friendly, with very eclectic life tastes and very dedicated to my Christian faith. I love being involved with the conversations happening here at CNet! You inspire me and teach me so much!

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for stopping in to read my profile. The quick description of me is that I'm easy-going and light-hearted. I love to be outdoors, to hike and snowshoe, to write and play with words, and, nearly always, to joke around.

The not-so-quick description of me is: I am an adjunct English instructor at a local community college. My husband and I moved to this town in 2007, and since that time, we've gotten married (to each other, I mean), had two kids, adopted two dogs, bought a house, and met great friends. We live in an area with beautiful mountains, lots of apple and cherry orchards, and some really good microbrews (:

In my "past life" (before family), I got my B.A. in English, Cultural Anthropology and French. I studied abroad in France during my last semester in college which got the ball rolling for nearly a decade of overseas and domestic travel. I served in the Peace Corps twice and just loved living a sort of nomadic life.

Now that I'm settled and my children are getting a little older (not exactly out of diapers yet, but still a little older), I'm planning to get my Master's in Global and International Education via an online program which starts this fall. I'm so excited! I've wanted to do this for a very long time, and I'm beyond happy that I'm taking this huge step to make a dream come true.

I joined CollegeNET in late March 2014, and it's been a godsend. As a writer, one of the most important things I feel I can do is to simply just sit down and write every day...even if it's only for five minutes. Just get words out and on paper (or screen). With a hectic lifestyle, however, writing every day can get lost in the mix. I love CNET because it's giving me a fantastic reason and opportunity to read and write every day, and it holds me accountable for meeting my daily writing goals.

I appreciate all of your reads and votes and comments, and I'm thoroughly enjoying engaging in the topics that you create. What can I say? This is all just pretty cool!

I look forward to some great discussions and I appreciate insights

What a Great Site and Great People I have met. It really means a lot to me and changed my life for the better. If you are new here please stick around and give it a chance.

I consider Cnet to be a place I can talk with friends.

I wish I could say I return votes but the new system doesn’t permit that…

What I can guarantee is if you take the time to converse with me and write thoughtfully, I will most assuredly vote for you…

My Name is Eric and I am an aspiring social worker…

I have my associates in business administration
Exactly one year away from my bachelor’s in psychology
One year and a few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I have a 4.0 in all the courses I have taken over the last two years or so…

I am very happy go lucky when I can be and want to emphasize my humorous side…

If you have any questions feel free to ask me here or my email ericvictorvelez@gmail.com...

I cannot claim to have all the answers; in fact I am probably more confused and lost about life...

Once you think you are happy then it has a habit of changing… never content

“Life” the biggest four letter word I have ever said

My goal is to look, listen, and learn… so feel free to teach me, I am an apt pupil

Welcome welcome to my profile page! I'm sure you're the first in ages to visit, so don't mind the cobwebs or the fort made of ramen noodle cups.

I'm at the 6 year mark in my Architectural Doctoral program, working on some very real upper level work that will doubtless consume my life with studio projects and internships where I have to wear a tie (turns out I don't!). I've been living/sleeping on the floor of various rooms for years now, and don't really mind it, though the building does have this one rat (only one...) and he ate a muffin I'd hidden in my desk once. Bastard. Still, when you get enough sleep the classes are fun, and I'm super tight with a bunch of other huge nerds in the program too. Seriously, I'm amazed we don't wear suspenders.

After I graduate from Hogwarts, I plan on zipping about the world in a really snazzy way working for various architecture firms and getting myself a whole ton of experience. I know many good people in a few countries now that are professionals, and who knows, maybe I'll get to work for them and be all worldly while I make buildings...in the world. It would be neat, anyways. But after all that I'm going to open my own firm! Oh yes, I even have a name picked out, but it's secret. I shall bask in design work as my own boss from then on, doing architecture, music, art, graphic design, world design in games, even collaborating with my favorite game companies to help them work on new titles. Oh the joy. Sometimes I just sit and glow to myself.

Also, I like ferrets and redheads, and if you have something against either well....this town ain't big enough for the two of us and all my redheads and ferrets! I can also legitimately say that because I'm from Montana.

Oh, my "video" is me holding my thumb over the camera while an awesome quote plays from a movie. I like my anonymity just as much as V.

UPDATE

Attending practicum at CSCEC and completing my masters of architecture from Tongji in Shanghai. Working on a residential/commercial development that will redefine Qi He and a school that will be in a neighboring province and teach k-12. and this stuff will probably be built! While this is a fantastic opportunity for me and I'll be able to do a lot with this degree for the rest of my life, it's gonna run a cool 55 grand to finish the China portion of my education. In short, you can expect to see me on here for a LONG time!

I'll see y'all around soon!

I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education inDec. 2004 and started working with children with developmental delays as an intensive behavioral intervention (IBI) therapist in 2007. I loved my job, but because of State budgets cuts and changes to the program, I felt that it was a good time to look for new challenges before my job disappeared completely. I continued to work as an IBI therapist while working on my master's in social work at Eastern Washington University. I graduated in March, 2014 and am currently looking for work after finishing my maternity leave.

I live in northern Idaho with my husband of 16 years and our three children: a girl who is 7, a boy who is 5, and our baby girl who was born in May, 2014.

Hello everyone! My name is Erica. I'm entering my senior year at the University of Maine at Farmington. I originally attended Sarah Lawrence College in New York for Creative Writing, but now I am pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Special Education after realizing that I want to teach! I am passionate about women's rights, manga and anime, and Game of Thrones!

I began CNET during my first year of college. I chose to go to a private college which put me in debt right off the bat. I ended up transferring to a public university and am incredibly happy with my decision since it is better for me financially and for my future job prospects. I am back on CNET because I am already in a lot of student debt and still need to pay for my final year of college. I work hard over the summers to save for school and always try to get on-campus jobs, but some semesters go better than others. I hope that CNET can help me become more financially stable by digging me out of debt and helping me pay for school.

In the future I hope to work with children with disabilities and their families. I want to help them achieve the best lives that they can, and I want to advocate for the lives of children and adults with special needs because of my love for children and what I've experienced by growing up with a brother with autism.

My life feels incomplete without a stack of books in my room, Green Day on my iPod, and my stuffed T-Rex named Emmett.

I love hearing the diverse perspectives of the people on this site. I am excited to be back in the CNET game and wish you all the best of luck!

Hello Cnetters,

To start off, I am grateful to all of you for your support, inspiration, votes, information, and replies. There were some days where life stresses got the best of me and I didn’t want to post anymore, then I saw the people who voted for me and thought to myself if these candidates are supporting me to win, then I should keep going and support them back. Additionally, the friends I made on here were amazing people. They were there for me all the time, giving me advices, cheering me up, and posting to my forums. I think some of them know who they are, so thank you so much for that:)

I am a senior majoring in biology, I dream to purse a medical career. I think health is the most precious thing a human has and I will be more than happy helping people maintain or regain their health back. I immigrated with my family to the US about 6 years ago. I used every opportunity I had to enhance my English and learn more about the culture and I am thankful to god for where I am today. Many things have shaped my life, most importantly, my Christian-Orthodox beliefs, family, and culture.

This semester, I am enrolled in 15 credit hours of advanced classes. I also have 2 research projects that I am working on, on campus-work, and church. I am a Sunday school teacher for kindergarten and 1st grade kids, though they are adorable and I love the service, it takes some time to prepare for them something fun, creative and beneficial. I am in charge of the house chores that require English such as the bills, the mail, the applications...etc. I do like to be constantly busy though because I get more done; I feel more productive and learn to better manage my time.

For my financial need, I am not going to say that I need the money more than any of you. I understand we all need the money desperately so I would be much happier and more appreciative if you voted for me based on my contributions. I have always tried my best to go for my five posts a day. I worked with every minute I have in between my busy schedule. I posted on breaks and in between my classes. Even during my classes sometimes (especially my physical survey of chemistry class:)), I was checking Cnet to think about what I will write when I get home. To summarize, I worked with everything I have to contribute and give back to the Cnet community.

I don’t want to talk too much and bore you with my writing, I hope it is not too late for that:), but thank you and I wish you all the best,
Peace

I'm Teresa, and I have been participating on CollegeNet since May of 2013. I'm so glad that I found this site through a good friend of mine. CollegeNet has truly changed my life! If you are just perusing through the site trying to figure out if CollegeNet is something you want to do, I encourage you to give it a try! It takes a lot of dedication and work, but in the end it will pay off and you will learn so much from a very diverse group of wonderful people! I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer System Technologies in December of 2012. CollegeNet has helped me pay off 25% of my total student loan debt so far! Whoohoo!

Some things I like to do outside of work and Collegenet is chillin with my puppy Russle and spittin rhymes. He is aspiring to be a psychologist someday but will probably never achieve it since he refuses to get a job, or learn how to read. He’s such a free loader! I reside in Bloomington, Illinois, which is the 17th geekiest place to live according to Yahoo! News. It’s probably a good thing that I’m surrounded by my fellow geeks, because as you can imagine from my major, I am a total geek! ;) I also like to do at home arts and crafts projects, work out at the gym, and try out new recipes! I hope my profile was exciting as you hoped it to be, cause that’s all I got for ya!

Thanks for taking the time to read :D

Hi all,

My name is Karlie Paschall. I am 25 years old.I got married right out of high school to my husband. We have now been married for seven years, all of which I have committed to going to school, and he has worked to help get me through school. It's been trying at times, but I have a goal of helping children and families someday. I am currently finishing up my last semester at the University of Idaho. I'll be graduating in December with my Bachelors in Child Development/Family Consumer Sciences degree. I have an 18 month old son, and another baby due in March! I am currently applying for the Masters program with Boise state in the school of Social Work. I am a busy momma, but hope someday to obtain my LCSW, and my dream is to be a child and family counselor, or work with children and families. I have just recently been accepted to work for Early Head start as an intern. It's been very eye opening so far, but hasn't turned me away from my passion. I would love help to continue with my goals, of finishing up school and moving on to graduate school. Help through this site with scholarships would most certainly complete my dream. Good luck to everyone!

I am grateful for those of you who have voted for me and for those just getting to know me. So thank you for visiting my profile.This has been a fascinating experience.

About me: Starting a new phase of my life: kids are grown, happily remarried, just accepted to a doctoral program. I will be coming up with some creative ideas to pay for it. I have received a small amount of scholarship $. But I am helping my kids pay for their first degrees before I can justify paying for my third. So, CNETers I need you. We need each other.

Love to dance, throw parties, eat out, work hard, hang with friends, and be with my dog!!

I will figure out how to fix my video so you can see me and then I can say hi personally!

Hi guys,

Thanks for checking out my profile page.

I'm originally from Uganda and have been living the States for about five years. I came here to study a Bachelor's in Communications and after that I have gone on to pursue a Masters in Linguistics. Yep, I will definitely take that break and travel/gain more work experience perhaps for a year or two. It's long overdue!

I have to tell you when I first came to the US, I was immediately in awe of...the roads! Man you guys can build. Seriously. Where I come from, a "high-way" is normally three-way but most roads are two-way. You can imagine how low my jaw dropped when I drove on the I-something or other. It was terrifying but thrilling at the same time. I appreciate the hard work you put in to make your country what it is.

I have visited several states in the US but my favorite is still Virginia. Yes I have lived here since I came to this country, so my view is biased. But there is something so restful and quaint about this state in comparison to the others. Go Virginia!

I enjoy bike-riding, walking, reading and watching anything related to adventure, romance or British-drama. If you have any suggestions on the best of all these, I'm all ears! I also enjoy talking so before this turns into a full-blown monologue, I better stop here.

I hope to hear from you and thanks again for checking out my profile page.

See you in the forums!

Hi there friends! I just want to say a quick and huge thank you for all the votes, support, laughts, thoughts, and for the wonderful time you all help me have here. You are all amazing and help make this environment so great to be a part of. Truly, thank you thank you!

I want to do something different. *Evil laughing* If you don't gather from this that I'm rather creative, love to be goofy and dorky, and just love making people smile, then well..at least I tried right? But really now, I really hope this makes you smile. It's my Cnet Theme Song! Hope you like it!

Here's the lyrics! Follow or sing along if you'd like!!

"Im on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

Yeah I, I know it’s hard to imagine,
The minutes and hours we spend,
And even harder to think of,
Ideas that no one has thought of,

You say it's too hard to rank 10th
But I say give it a try,
And with all that drive you take in,
You'll be cruisin to the top,

I've had restless nights,
With thoughts of sign ins
And seeing no votes,
My heart sinks to the floor
That's when we gather strength
And our sleepy minds get overly creative.

I’m on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

If Cnet happened to never exist,
I would have no chance to write like this,
All my college bills would stack up so high
And I'd be forced to make McDonald's fries.

Oh yeah, you woke up early this morning,
With thoughts of writing a post,
But someone an hour before you,
Signed on and thought of it first,
Oh and there's two votes to be given,
Better think of them now,
Because if given last minute,
They might just move right past you.

We've had arguments,
With trolls and demands,
Now we're all best friends,
Yeah we'd like to believe but,
When we compete we're still
On our feet ready to climb up the ranks.

I’m on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

If Cnet happened to never exist,
I would have no chance to sing this song,
My days and nights would be boring and long,
And I'd be forced to sing another song.....like

"Call Me Maybe"
I love you Cnet!! "

I'm grateful to CNet and the people who have voted for me. I'm thrilled to have won CNet scholarships. CNet is the best kept secret. I've learned new things, made friends and earned scholarships the fun way on here.

I have been on cnet since the Summer before my junior year in high school. I am now a senior at Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I have a 3.9 GPA but I'm working for that 4.0. I'm majoring in Communication Sciences and Speech Disorders on the education track I'm doing my best to graduate on time, intern and go straight to grad school (an entry level position in my field requires a Master's), grad school is extremely competitive in my field-wish me luck.

My family has definitely gone through some rough times. My hero, my mother, died after fighting cancer on April 5th, 2013. She is my inspiration and you will definitely hear a lot about her on cnet.

Welcome welcome to my profile page! I'm sure you're the first in ages to visit, so don't mind the cobwebs or the fort made of ramen noodle cups.

I'm at the 6 year mark in my Architectural Doctoral program, working on some very real upper level work that will doubtless consume my life with studio projects and internships where I have to wear a tie (turns out I don't!). I've been living/sleeping on the floor of various rooms for years now, and don't really mind it, though the building does have this one rat (only one...) and he ate a muffin I'd hidden in my desk once. Bastard. Still, when you get enough sleep the classes are fun, and I'm super tight with a bunch of other huge nerds in the program too. Seriously, I'm amazed we don't wear suspenders.

After I graduate from Hogwarts, I plan on zipping about the world in a really snazzy way working for various architecture firms and getting myself a whole ton of experience. I know many good people in a few countries now that are professionals, and who knows, maybe I'll get to work for them and be all worldly while I make buildings...in the world. It would be neat, anyways. But after all that I'm going to open my own firm! Oh yes, I even have a name picked out, but it's secret. I shall bask in design work as my own boss from then on, doing architecture, music, art, graphic design, world design in games, even collaborating with my favorite game companies to help them work on new titles. Oh the joy. Sometimes I just sit and glow to myself.

Also, I like ferrets and redheads, and if you have something against either well....this town ain't big enough for the two of us and all my redheads and ferrets! I can also legitimately say that because I'm from Montana.

Oh, my "video" is me holding my thumb over the camera while an awesome quote plays from a movie. I like my anonymity just as much as V.

UPDATE

Attending practicum at CSCEC and completing my masters of architecture from Tongji in Shanghai. Working on a residential/commercial development that will redefine Qi He and a school that will be in a neighboring province and teach k-12. and this stuff will probably be built! While this is a fantastic opportunity for me and I'll be able to do a lot with this degree for the rest of my life, it's gonna run a cool 55 grand to finish the China portion of my education. In short, you can expect to see me on here for a LONG time!

I'll see y'all around soon!

I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education inDec. 2004 and started working with children with developmental delays as an intensive behavioral intervention (IBI) therapist in 2007. I loved my job, but because of State budgets cuts and changes to the program, I felt that it was a good time to look for new challenges before my job disappeared completely. I continued to work as an IBI therapist while working on my master's in social work at Eastern Washington University. I graduated in March, 2014 and am currently looking for work after finishing my maternity leave.

Hello Cnetters,

To start off, I am grateful to all of you for your support, inspiration, votes, information, and replies. There were some days where life stresses got the best of me and I didn’t want to post anymore, then I saw the people who voted for me and thought to myself if these candidates are supporting me to win, then I should keep going and support them back. Additionally, the friends I made on here were amazing people. They were there for me all the time, giving me advices, cheering me up, and posting to my forums. I think some of them know who they are, so thank you so much for that:)

I am a senior majoring in biology, I dream to purse a medical career. I think health is the most precious thing a human has and I will be more than happy helping people maintain or regain their health back. I immigrated with my family to the US about 6 years ago. I used every opportunity I had to enhance my English and learn more about the culture and I am thankful to god for where I am today. Many things have shaped my life, most importantly, my Christian-Orthodox beliefs, family, and culture.

This semester, I am enrolled in 15 credit hours of advanced classes. I also have 2 research projects that I am working on, on campus-work, and church. I am a Sunday school teacher for kindergarten and 1st grade kids, though they are adorable and I love the service, it takes some time to prepare for them something fun, creative and beneficial. I am in charge of the house chores that require English such as the bills, the mail, the applications...etc. I do like to be constantly busy though because I get more done; I feel more productive and learn to better manage my time.

For my financial need, I am not going to say that I need the money more than any of you. I understand we all need the money desperately so I would be much happier and more appreciative if you voted for me based on my contributions. I have always tried my best to go for my five posts a day. I worked with every minute I have in between my busy schedule. I posted on breaks and in between my classes. Even during my classes sometimes (especially my physical survey of chemistry class:)), I was checking Cnet to think about what I will write when I get home. To summarize, I worked with everything I have to contribute and give back to the Cnet community.

I don’t want to talk too much and bore you with my writing, I hope it is not too late for that:), but thank you and I wish you all the best,
Peace

Hey There, I'm Marteen :]

Thanks for stopping by here on my Profile page. I think I will start off with the fact that I am studying Electronic Media and Film here at Northern Arizona University, in Flagstaff, Arizona. I hope to one day be either on air on your local news station or radio show, or to be filming, editing, or producing movies or television shows! I love being up here with the beautiful pines, the mountains and the lovely college town we have going for us.

There are so many things that I love to do! I love to meet and talk to people, I love to dance; modern, jazz, swing, lindy hop, and I guess I'll throw hip hop in there even though I am not that good at it. I love to make crafts especially for my friends, snowboarding, eating and trying delicious food, and last but not least my favorite animal is a stingray! I spent majority of my life on the ice. I skated competitively in synchronized skating, and in singles. If there are any ice skaters out there, let me know!! I Love to talk about figure skating! :]

I am so happy that I am apart of the amazing community here on College Net and I am so blessed with the opportunity. I love all the people that are on here, and love that I am starting to make connections with them outside of cnet! Don't be shy to add me on Facebook or anything of the sort! :]

Oh I am Canadian, and trust me I have heard all the Canadian jokes that are running through your head right now! Canada is amazing and I will never be embarrassed to say that I am or to call it my hometown!

I am grateful for those of you who have voted for me and for those just getting to know me. So thank you for visiting my profile.This has been a fascinating experience.

About me: Starting a new phase of my life: kids are grown, happily remarried, just accepted to a doctoral program. I will be coming up with some creative ideas to pay for it. I have received a small amount of scholarship $. But I am helping my kids pay for their first degrees before I can justify paying for my third. So, CNETers I need you. We need each other.

Love to dance, throw parties, eat out, work hard, hang with friends, and be with my dog!!

I will figure out how to fix my video so you can see me and then I can say hi personally!

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for stopping in to read my profile. The quick description of me is that I'm easy-going and light-hearted. I love to be outdoors, to hike and snowshoe, to write and play with words, and, nearly always, to joke around.

The not-so-quick description of me is: I am an adjunct English instructor at a local community college. My husband and I moved to this town in 2007, and since that time, we've gotten married (to each other, I mean), had two kids, adopted two dogs, bought a house, and met great friends. We live in an area with beautiful mountains, lots of apple and cherry orchards, and some really good microbrews (:

In my "past life" (before family), I got my B.A. in English, Cultural Anthropology and French. I studied abroad in France during my last semester in college which got the ball rolling for nearly a decade of overseas and domestic travel. I served in the Peace Corps twice and just loved living a sort of nomadic life.

Now that I'm settled and my children are getting a little older (not exactly out of diapers yet, but still a little older), I'm planning to get my Master's in Global and International Education via an online program which starts this fall. I'm so excited! I've wanted to do this for a very long time, and I'm beyond happy that I'm taking this huge step to make a dream come true.

I joined CollegeNET in late March 2014, and it's been a godsend. As a writer, one of the most important things I feel I can do is to simply just sit down and write every day...even if it's only for five minutes. Just get words out and on paper (or screen). With a hectic lifestyle, however, writing every day can get lost in the mix. I love CNET because it's giving me a fantastic reason and opportunity to read and write every day, and it holds me accountable for meeting my daily writing goals.

I appreciate all of your reads and votes and comments, and I'm thoroughly enjoying engaging in the topics that you create. What can I say? This is all just pretty cool!

I have left this blank for so long, but I hate empty space!

Hello! I go by Shlappi all over the internet to conceal my true identity O.o
I enjoy having fun and joking around, but what i love more is heated debates and philosophical talk. Nothing interests me more then the cosmos. I can spend hours staring at the stars and questioning everything that ever was or will be.

I am currently am Architecture Design Major in Buffalo NY and it really is my true calling. Every year and project is a new challenge with thousands of possible outcomes and you control what you learn every semester. My favorite interest in Architecture is the relation of people to space, and the application of science to design.

If you want to know any more about my, look through my forums. I am very open about myself (sense very few people actually know me) and am willing to share a lot on cnet.

Stay humble!

Hi! My name is Amelie Hinson.

( Aw-Mah-Lee)

I figured since all of my teachers have a hard time reading it, you might too! and if you're anything like me, reading a name that you just don't quite get is unbearable.

I'm still in high school, but not for long! Next fall I'll be attending Northern Arizona University. Go Lumberjacks!

Currently I'm looking for a job, but I am a nationally registered and state certified EMT (emergency medical technician)!! I absolutely love it and I plan to get a bachelors in nursing at NAU once I figure out a good way to get it paid for... which is why I love college net!!

Read my forums:) sometimes I think I'm pretty funny. Oh! and vote!

Vote For Amelie! She likes scholarships!

Hi there friends! I just want to say a quick and huge thank you for all the votes, support, laughts, thoughts, and for the wonderful time you all help me have here. You are all amazing and help make this environment so great to be a part of. Truly, thank you thank you!

I want to do something different. *Evil laughing* If you don't gather from this that I'm rather creative, love to be goofy and dorky, and just love making people smile, then well..at least I tried right? But really now, I really hope this makes you smile. It's my Cnet Theme Song! Hope you like it!

Here's the lyrics! Follow or sing along if you'd like!!

"Im on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

Yeah I, I know it’s hard to imagine,
The minutes and hours we spend,
And even harder to think of,
Ideas that no one has thought of,

You say it's too hard to rank 10th
But I say give it a try,
And with all that drive you take in,
You'll be cruisin to the top,

I've had restless nights,
With thoughts of sign ins
And seeing no votes,
My heart sinks to the floor
That's when we gather strength
And our sleepy minds get overly creative.

I’m on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

If Cnet happened to never exist,
I would have no chance to write like this,
All my college bills would stack up so high
And I'd be forced to make McDonald's fries.

Oh yeah, you woke up early this morning,
With thoughts of writing a post,
But someone an hour before you,
Signed on and thought of it first,
Oh and there's two votes to be given,
Better think of them now,
Because if given last minute,
They might just move right past you.

We've had arguments,
With trolls and demands,
Now we're all best friends,
Yeah we'd like to believe but,
When we compete we're still
On our feet ready to climb up the ranks.

I’m on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

If Cnet happened to never exist,
I would have no chance to sing this song,
My days and nights would be boring and long,
And I'd be forced to sing another song.....like

"Call Me Maybe"
I love you Cnet!! "

I'm Teresa, and I have been participating on CollegeNet since May of 2013. I'm so glad that I found this site through a good friend of mine. CollegeNet has truly changed my life! If you are just perusing through the site trying to figure out if CollegeNet is something you want to do, I encourage you to give it a try! It takes a lot of dedication and work, but in the end it will pay off and you will learn so much from a very diverse group of wonderful people! I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer System Technologies in December of 2012. CollegeNet has helped me pay off 25% of my total student loan debt so far! Whoohoo!

Some things I like to do outside of work and Collegenet is chillin with my puppy Russle and spittin rhymes. He is aspiring to be a psychologist someday but will probably never achieve it since he refuses to get a job, or learn how to read. He’s such a free loader! I reside in Bloomington, Illinois, which is the 17th geekiest place to live according to Yahoo! News. It’s probably a good thing that I’m surrounded by my fellow geeks, because as you can imagine from my major, I am a total geek! ;) I also like to do at home arts and crafts projects, work out at the gym, and try out new recipes! I hope my profile was exciting as you hoped it to be, cause that’s all I got for ya!

My name is Sarah. I live in Baton Rouge, LA.

I attended LSU in Baton Rouge for 5 years before transferring to LSUHSC (Health Science Center) in New Orleans to complete my undergraduate BS degree in Medical Technology in 2008. I work as a Medical Technologist at LSU-SVM (School of Veterinary Medicine), where I take care of the wonderful creatures, big and small, that show up at the doors of the SVM Clinics.

So why am I on CollegeNET?

I graduated with $30,000 in student loan debt. The scholarships I win will go towards helping me pay off the debt. I would like to go to graduate school to earn an MS, but I need to pay down the debt before I do go back to school.

I appreciate all your posts to my forums, for reading my forums, and for voting for me.

Greetings, and thank you for visiting my profile!

For you to know a bit about me, I'll start by admitting that
1) Feminism is my religion, and
2) Psychology is my life study.

I am so grateful for CollegeNet and so happy to have met all of the community members on here!

As for college, I am a second semester sophomore paying my own way through Goucher College to pursue my dream of becoming a licensed psychologist.

My background: I am half Syrian, with 10 beloved family members still residing in Syria. As I pray for them everyday, I also study hard towards my education so that one day I can help them recover from the emotional and psychological distress and also to get out of their situation.

I thank you dearly for taking the time to learn more about me. Hope to hear from you in my forums!

Please vote for me so that I can have a chance at the upcoming election! :)

Hi Peeps!

My name is Paige, I have many nick names, Miss Paige, Paigey, Piggy... keeps going ;)

I am studying at Arizona State University, my major is Public Services and Public Policy with a focus in Social Services Delivery. I start this major in August 2014.

I am hoping that I can start a non-profit of some sort, I want to help children obtain more rights all around the world. It seems like it is something that is extremely lacking in society! I hope that I can obtain a law degree to do so :)

I am here on collegenet to get some writing experience and get some scholarship money to do my passion. I am so thankful for my friend who told me about this site, it has really helped take some stress off my shoulders!

THANK YOU supporters!

Hey there everyone!

I'm new to collegenet, but I'm enjoying the experience a lot. I've never been a part of something like this and it's pretty interesting.

For my education, I'm working on my undergrad degree in architecture. I love the creative, conceptual parts of it, and the reason I got into it was my interest in art and oil painting with a classical and landscape focus.

I have a few dreams I'd like to accomplish.
First, I'd like to buy an apartment building and rent it out, slowly making renovations to it, giving people a gorgeous place to live.
Second, I'd like to design and build schools in developing countries in order to give the gift of education that my parents gave to me. Even with all this homework and these loans to deal with, we are all blessed with the opportunity of education.

Besides learning about architecture, I love to go running; I like painting, reading, writing, and dancing. I like learning pretty much anything from people who are passionate about the topic. I'm increasingly interested in women's issues and awareness, but it's all new to me, so I'm learning what part I can play.

I appreciate your votes, and I look forward to posting with you!

Hi my name is Susan.

I currently work as a job recruiter for a small IT company. Born in 1990, I still consider myself a fledgling to the world. I graduated from college in May 2013 as a Philosophy major. Originally I was a Biological Sciences Major with a concentration is Pre-Pharmacy, but after a long struggle, I decided to switch majors when I realized that there is more to life than doing as you are told. Especially when it comes to what is right for you.

Having had to extend a year due to the switch in majors, I ended up with more student loans than I should have. So being on CNET I hope to make friends, post my thoughts, and hopefully be able to pay off my student loans with less worrying.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for stopping in to read my profile. The quick description of me is that I'm easy-going and light-hearted. I love to be outdoors, to hike and snowshoe, to write and play with words, and, nearly always, to joke around.

The not-so-quick description of me is: I am an adjunct English instructor at a local community college. My husband and I moved to this town in 2007, and since that time, we've gotten married (to each other, I mean), had two kids, adopted two dogs, bought a house, and met great friends. We live in an area with beautiful mountains, lots of apple and cherry orchards, and some really good microbrews (:

In my "past life" (before family), I got my B.A. in English, Cultural Anthropology and French. I studied abroad in France during my last semester in college which got the ball rolling for nearly a decade of overseas and domestic travel. I served in the Peace Corps twice and just loved living a sort of nomadic life.

Now that I'm settled and my children are getting a little older (not exactly out of diapers yet, but still a little older), I'm planning to get my Master's in Global and International Education via an online program which starts this fall. I'm so excited! I've wanted to do this for a very long time, and I'm beyond happy that I'm taking this huge step to make a dream come true.

I joined CollegeNET in late March 2014, and it's been a godsend. As a writer, one of the most important things I feel I can do is to simply just sit down and write every day...even if it's only for five minutes. Just get words out and on paper (or screen). With a hectic lifestyle, however, writing every day can get lost in the mix. I love CNET because it's giving me a fantastic reason and opportunity to read and write every day, and it holds me accountable for meeting my daily writing goals.

I appreciate all of your reads and votes and comments, and I'm thoroughly enjoying engaging in the topics that you create. What can I say? This is all just pretty cool!

Hi there friends! I just want to say a quick and huge thank you for all the votes, support, laughts, thoughts, and for the wonderful time you all help me have here. You are all amazing and help make this environment so great to be a part of. Truly, thank you thank you!

I want to do something different. *Evil laughing* If you don't gather from this that I'm rather creative, love to be goofy and dorky, and just love making people smile, then well..at least I tried right? But really now, I really hope this makes you smile. It's my Cnet Theme Song! Hope you like it!

Here's the lyrics! Follow or sing along if you'd like!!

"Im on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

Yeah I, I know it’s hard to imagine,
The minutes and hours we spend,
And even harder to think of,
Ideas that no one has thought of,

You say it's too hard to rank 10th
But I say give it a try,
And with all that drive you take in,
You'll be cruisin to the top,

I've had restless nights,
With thoughts of sign ins
And seeing no votes,
My heart sinks to the floor
That's when we gather strength
And our sleepy minds get overly creative.

I’m on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

If Cnet happened to never exist,
I would have no chance to write like this,
All my college bills would stack up so high
And I'd be forced to make McDonald's fries.

Oh yeah, you woke up early this morning,
With thoughts of writing a post,
But someone an hour before you,
Signed on and thought of it first,
Oh and there's two votes to be given,
Better think of them now,
Because if given last minute,
They might just move right past you.

We've had arguments,
With trolls and demands,
Now we're all best friends,
Yeah we'd like to believe but,
When we compete we're still
On our feet ready to climb up the ranks.

I’m on this website,
Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

If Cnet happened to never exist,
I would have no chance to sing this song,
My days and nights would be boring and long,
And I'd be forced to sing another song.....like

"Call Me Maybe"
I love you Cnet!! "

I'm grateful to CNet and the people who have voted for me. I'm thrilled to have won CNet scholarships. CNet is the best kept secret. I've learned new things, made friends and earned scholarships the fun way on here.

I have been on cnet since the Summer before my junior year in high school. I am now a senior at Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I have a 3.9 GPA but I'm working for that 4.0. I'm majoring in Communication Sciences and Speech Disorders on the education track I'm doing my best to graduate on time, intern and go straight to grad school (an entry level position in my field requires a Master's), grad school is extremely competitive in my field-wish me luck.

My family has definitely gone through some rough times. My hero, my mother, died after fighting cancer on April 5th, 2013. She is my inspiration and you will definitely hear a lot about her on cnet.

Here is a link to my fundraising page with the American Cancer Society http://main.acsevents.org/goto/Loren_Alexander

and my fundraising page with Support Connection http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/loren-alexander/walk2013

My mini resume:
-This Summer I am interning in my field
-Last Summer I volunteered in my field at a hospital
-I volunteered helping the emotionally and physically disabled ride horses as a means of therapy
-I volunteer for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
-I am a member of National Students of Speech Language and Hearing Association on campus
-I ballroom dance


If you'd like to be friends, add me on facebook www.facebook.com/loren.alexander or email me at la49013p@pace.edu It would be nice to chat without a 5 post maximum limit. Or if you like sending and receiving mail, message me for my address!

I hope to get to know all of you better through your posts (let your personality come through!). Thank you for your time and this amazing opportunity to fund my education and ward off debt from student loans!

Welcome welcome to my profile page! I'm sure you're the first in ages to visit, so don't mind the cobwebs or the fort made of ramen noodle cups.

I'm at the 6 year mark in my Architectural Doctoral program, working on some very real upper level work that will doubtless consume my life with studio projects and internships where I have to wear a tie (turns out I don't!). I've been living/sleeping on the floor of various rooms for years now, and don't really mind it, though the building does have this one rat (only one...) and he ate a muffin I'd hidden in my desk once. Bastard. Still, when you get enough sleep the classes are fun, and I'm super tight with a bunch of other huge nerds in the program too. Seriously, I'm amazed we don't wear suspenders.

After I graduate from Hogwarts, I plan on zipping about the world in a really snazzy way working for various architecture firms and getting myself a whole ton of experience. I know many good people in a few countries now that are professionals, and who knows, maybe I'll get to work for them and be all worldly while I make buildings...in the world. It would be neat, anyways. But after all that I'm going to open my own firm! Oh yes, I even have a name picked out, but it's secret. I shall bask in design work as my own boss from then on, doing architecture, music, art, graphic design, world design in games, even collaborating with my favorite game companies to help them work on new titles. Oh the joy. Sometimes I just sit and glow to myself.

Also, I like ferrets and redheads, and if you have something against either well....this town ain't big enough for the two of us and all my redheads and ferrets! I can also legitimately say that because I'm from Montana.

Oh, my "video" is me holding my thumb over the camera while an awesome quote plays from a movie. I like my anonymity just as much as V.

UPDATE

Attending practicum at CSCEC and completing my masters of architecture from Tongji in Shanghai. Working on a residential/commercial development that will redefine Qi He and a school that will be in a neighboring province and teach k-12. and this stuff will probably be built! While this is a fantastic opportunity for me and I'll be able to do a lot with this degree for the rest of my life, it's gonna run a cool 55 grand to finish the China portion of my education. In short, you can expect to see me on here for a LONG time!

I'll see y'all around soon!

I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education inDec. 2004 and started working with children with developmental delays as an intensive behavioral intervention (IBI) therapist in 2007. I loved my job, but because of State budgets cuts and changes to the program, I felt that it was a good time to look for new challenges before my job disappeared completely. I continued to work as an IBI therapist while working on my master's in social work at Eastern Washington University. I graduated in March, 2014 and am currently looking for work after finishing my maternity leave.

I live in northern Idaho with my husband of 16 years and our three children: a girl who is 7, a boy who is 5, and our baby girl who was born in May, 2014.

¡Hola! Soy Michelle, y me gustaría ser vuestra amiga. Pero, hasta entonces, podéis llegar a conocerme por mis mensajes.

Translation: Hello! My name is Michelle, and I would like to be your friend. But, until then, you can get to know me through my posts.

Here´s a few secrets I´ll let you in on:
1) I absolutely love learning - any subject will do, as long as it provides me with continuous opportunities to absorb wisdom and/or knowledge.
2) Me encanta español, como ya podéis ver. If you can understand what I have just written, I already like you. :-)
3) I love thinking, and often spend hours pondering any one topic.
4) I have a strange attraction to the pipe organ and baroque-period classical music in general.
5) I compose music as a hobby. Nothing modern, just pieces for organ, flute, string ensembles, orchestras, etc.

I figured I'd leave the intro, because none of that changed, but it's about time I update y'all on what I'm *really* doing with school!

Well, after this semestre, I'll have an Associate's Degree, and will then transfer to UW-Whitewater, College of Business and Economics to finish my Bachelor's in Accounting. Then, I plan to take the CPA Exam, and work for a small business, if at all possible.

However, that's just my career. What I really want to do is help people. My goal as of now is to take one or two people into my home (once I have a humble one of my own, of course), and feed and clothe them. Then, I'd like to take it a step further and partner with them for either their education or their job applications - whichever would best benefit them. As they eventually start earning enough to be financially independent, I'll help them in the final step of securing a place of their own. I may only be able to do this with a handful of people throughout my lifetime, and I'm okay with that. I'd rather be involved in helping those I know would benefit from my money more than I would, and developing life-long relationships with them, than just throwing a few dollars at someone on the street.

If the above description didn't clue you into this one, I'm a super compassionate person who just loves God and wants to bless others out of the blessings I've received from Him. I follow Christ wholeheartedly, and His love is an amazing gift - one that I love to share with others.

There's my life in a nutshell. :-) Thanks for stopping by my profile, and see ya around CNet!

Hello everyone! My name is Erica. I'm entering my senior year at the University of Maine at Farmington. I originally attended Sarah Lawrence College in New York for Creative Writing, but now I am pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Special Education after realizing that I want to teach! I am passionate about women's rights, manga and anime, and Game of Thrones!

I began CNET during my first year of college. I chose to go to a private college which put me in debt right off the bat. I ended up transferring to a public university and am incredibly happy with my decision since it is better for me financially and for my future job prospects. I am back on CNET because I am already in a lot of student debt and still need to pay for my final year of college. I work hard over the summers to save for school and always try to get on-campus jobs, but some semesters go better than others. I hope that CNET can help me become more financially stable by digging me out of debt and helping me pay for school.

In the future I hope to work with children with disabilities and their families. I want to help them achieve the best lives that they can, and I want to advocate for the lives of children and adults with special needs because of my love for children and what I've experienced by growing up with a brother with autism.

My life feels incomplete without a stack of books in my room, Green Day on my iPod, and my stuffed T-Rex named Emmett.

I love hearing the diverse perspectives of the people on this site. I am excited to be back in the CNET game and wish you all the best of luck!

Hello Cnetters,

To start off, I am grateful to all of you for your support, inspiration, votes, information, and replies. There were some days where life stresses got the best of me and I didn’t want to post anymore, then I saw the people who voted for me and thought to myself if these candidates are supporting me to win, then I should keep going and support them back. Additionally, the friends I made on here were amazing people. They were there for me all the time, giving me advices, cheering me up, and posting to my forums. I think some of them know who they are, so thank you so much for that:)

I am a senior majoring in biology, I dream to purse a medical career. I think health is the most precious thing a human has and I will be more than happy helping people maintain or regain their health back. I immigrated with my family to the US about 6 years ago. I used every opportunity I had to enhance my English and learn more about the culture and I am thankful to god for where I am today. Many things have shaped my life, most importantly, my Christian-Orthodox beliefs, family, and culture.

This semester, I am enrolled in 15 credit hours of advanced classes. I also have 2 research projects that I am working on, on campus-work, and church. I am a Sunday school teacher for kindergarten and 1st grade kids, though they are adorable and I love the service, it takes some time to prepare for them something fun, creative and beneficial. I am in charge of the house chores that require English such as the bills, the mail, the applications...etc. I do like to be constantly busy though because I get more done; I feel more productive and learn to better manage my time.

For my financial need, I am not going to say that I need the money more than any of you. I understand we all need the money desperately so I would be much happier and more appreciative if you voted for me based on my contributions. I have always tried my best to go for my five posts a day. I worked with every minute I have in between my busy schedule. I posted on breaks and in between my classes. Even during my classes sometimes (especially my physical survey of chemistry class:)), I was checking Cnet to think about what I will write when I get home. To summarize, I worked with everything I have to contribute and give back to the Cnet community.

I don’t want to talk too much and bore you with my writing, I hope it is not too late for that:), but thank you and I wish you all the best,
Peace

To all my fellow Collegnetters and to Collegenet, first I would like to thank you for taking the time to view my profile and investing time to read this as well!

-If you haven't guessed yet, my name Is Maryam. I am an 18 year old, and attending Temple University for architecture. I love art, animals (Lots of posts involving animal rights and vegetarianism!), and travel.
- I am bilingual and enjoy teaching English as a second language, especially if I'm working with kids (Although I don't plan on making education my career).
- I've studied overseas, in Syria, for about 5 years, but moved back towards the end of my junior year in high school because of a breakout of civil war.(Which hopefully, some of you have heard of at least!) (If not go research it! It's all over the news!)(I pray that madness ends soon, it has been too long....)

So why do I need you votes??
- Simple enough, I am in need of financial aid, and not just loans I'll be paying back for the next 20 plus years! Who wants to be paying back student loans when their own kids are about to enter college!?

What makes me deserve your vote? (Trust me, I'm doing my best not to sound cocky... That can be a difficult task when it comes to writing these things!):
- I have a plan for my future. I know what I want to do with my life, and not only 'Hey, I want to go to college!'
- I really really want to go into architecture (as I have, and I believe in a way, it is my calling), although I'm not entirely positive what branch of architecture I want to do yet, but I have Architectural design in mind. Why architecture? It is a job that is demanded now-a-days, I love sketching and designing, and is a competitive careers, which by previous experience, I know is an environment that'll keep be motivated. I also plan to search for an internship in a firm during my junior year.
- I am grateful. I don't take things for granted, and I appreciate what I am given, no matter how small or big it may be! I know I am great need of financial help for school, and every penny is MUCH appreciated! I have worked very hard for where I am today, and I will continue to work just as hard for many many years to come.
- I want to make my mark on the world, I don't want to come and go as if I never existed. Yes, it's a fairly generic wish in the new and young generation, but why wouldn't it be?

Thank you! And may the votes be with you!

Hey There, I'm Marteen :]

Thanks for stopping by here on my Profile page. I think I will start off with the fact that I am studying Electronic Media and Film here at Northern Arizona University, in Flagstaff, Arizona. I hope to one day be either on air on your local news station or radio show, or to be filming, editing, or producing movies or television shows! I love being up here with the beautiful pines, the mountains and the lovely college town we have going for us.

There are so many things that I love to do! I love to meet and talk to people, I love to dance; modern, jazz, swing, lindy hop, and I guess I'll throw hip hop in there even though I am not that good at it. I love to make crafts especially for my friends, snowboarding, eating and trying delicious food, and last but not least my favorite animal is a stingray! I spent majority of my life on the ice. I skated competitively in synchronized skating, and in singles. If there are any ice skaters out there, let me know!! I Love to talk about figure skating! :]

I am so happy that I am apart of the amazing community here on College Net and I am so blessed with the opportunity. I love all the people that are on here, and love that I am starting to make connections with them outside of cnet! Don't be shy to add me on Facebook or anything of the sort! :]

Oh I am Canadian, and trust me I have heard all the Canadian jokes that are running through your head right now! Canada is amazing and I will never be embarrassed to say that I am or to call it my hometown!

I am a man of deep emotive feelings..often filled with sorrow.

please accept me for who I am...please

..I have grown tired of being an honest beggar..

...we cannot change culture. culture must change itself..

one cannot take from another that in which one does not have

~~bearlish~~spoken here

i do not wear a tutu, a funny hat (well sometimes), an umbrella..or ride a bike in a circle...


~~~driven by desire~~~ its my bearism. dont even think of using it as a screen name..understood!?!?!? dabear is a hungry sort..besides the usual nuts and berries...gotta have a little salmon..
ok...now about dabear....

"follow the evidence" (grissom) interpreted from a quote from ep220.

so call me "mr greycloud bear" if you please...or felt like the wind..or for those who know me from ages ago greatvoice (gv for short)

contrary to the gruff rough exterior and hard pounding opinions, i am a very kind, loving, eclectic person. I write as a hobby that evokes deep feelings, and have been published.i enjoy art and it's expressionism..from paintings and graphics to music and film. most people love me or hate me..isn't that life? **note** this is all to be a bit tongue in cheek. and with a bit of dry humour.

i am called a native english teacher because i teach english as a second language and my first language is english. i teach esl outside of the states.

i am also a doctoral (PhD) candidate in Adult Education. Who knows I may be your teacher one day in some other subject than English, perhaps cultural studies or something. I was a trainer before and I made people think. I used many tools in training as i do in teaching. It pays to think here too!

If you would like to vote for me here, that would be appreciated kindly! yes, you can vote for me! see the vote button!:)~

uggh research!and it won;t end!

for those who know me as "felt like the wind"...
i am who i am and that's all i can be
i am the water and the wind..my voice speaks with the crashing waves of life, and the wind is how my thoughts touch you. i am often quiet and never heard, but you know i have been there or here...

I also have motor skills issues, and though that is my issue, it also has to do with who i am and my words.

I am not one to believe in god, though I have my spirits that guide me. (there is a diff yes.)

"as we walk through this world..we will slowly see a path. it is destiny calling. follow it, and good will follow you"

Its name is Cnet,
All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

If Cnet happened to never exist,
I would have no chance to write like this,
All my college bills would stack up so high
And I'd be forced to make McDonald's fries.

Oh yeah, you woke up early this morning,
With thoughts of writing a post,
But someone an hour before you,
Signed on and thought of it first,
Oh and there's two votes to be given,
Better think of them now,
Because if given last minute,
They might just move right past you.

We've had arguments,
With trolls and demands,
Now we're all best friends,
Yeah we'd like to believe but,
When we compete we're still
On our feet ready to climb up the ranks.

I'm grateful to CNet and the people who have voted for me. I'm thrilled to have won CNet scholarships. CNet is the best kept secret. I've learned new things, made friends and earned scholarships the fun way on here.

I have been on cnet since the Summer before my junior year in high school. I am now a senior at Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I have a 3.9 GPA but I'm working for that 4.0. I'm majoring in Communication Sciences and Speech Disorders on the education track I'm doing my best to graduate on time, intern and go straight to grad school (an entry level position in my field requires a Master's), grad school is extremely competitive in my field-wish me luck.

My family has definitely gone through some rough times. My hero, my mother, died after fighting cancer on April 5th, 2013. She is my inspiration and you will definitely hear a lot about her on cnet.

Welcome welcome to my profile page! I'm sure you're the first in ages to visit, so don't mind the cobwebs or the fort made of ramen noodle cups.

I'm at the 6 year mark in my Architectural Doctoral program, working on some very real upper level work that will doubtless consume my life with studio projects and internships where I have to wear a tie (turns out I don't!). I've been living/sleeping on the floor of various rooms for years now, and don't really mind it, though the building does have this one rat (only one...) and he ate a muffin I'd hidden in my desk once. Bastard. Still, when you get enough sleep the classes are fun, and I'm super tight with a bunch of other huge nerds in the program too. Seriously, I'm amazed we don't wear suspenders.

After I graduate from Hogwarts, I plan on zipping about the world in a really snazzy way working for various architecture firms and getting myself a whole ton of experience. I know many good people in a few countries now that are professionals, and who knows, maybe I'll get to work for them and be all worldly while I make buildings...in the world. It would be neat, anyways. But after all that I'm going to open my own firm! Oh yes, I even have a name picked out, but it's secret. I shall bask in design work as my own boss from then on, doing architecture, music, art, graphic design, world design in games, even collaborating with my favorite game companies to help them work on new titles. Oh the joy. Sometimes I just sit and glow to myself.

Also, I like ferrets and redheads, and if you have something against either well....this town ain't big enough for the two of us and all my redheads and ferrets! I can also legitimately say that because I'm from Montana.

Oh, my "video" is me holding my thumb over the camera while an awesome quote plays from a movie. I like my anonymity just as much as V.

UPDATE

Attending practicum at CSCEC and completing my masters of architecture from Tongji in Shanghai. Working on a residential/commercial development that will redefine Qi He and a school that will be in a neighboring province and teach k-12. and this stuff will probably be built! While this is a fantastic opportunity for me and I'll be able to do a lot with this degree for the rest of my life, it's gonna run a cool 55 grand to finish the China portion of my education. In short, you can expect to see me on here for a LONG time!

I'll see y'all around soon!

Hello to all!

My name is Demitrios and I am a graduate of the University of Notre Dame. I am hoping to earn scholarship money to help pay off my student debt but additionally I am interested in hearing what everyone has to say and to get my thoughts out there. I appreciate any votes or comments if you like what I have written.

My name is Nichole, I am 23 years old. I currently am in college aiming for a Bachelor's degree in Technical Management with a concentration in Criminal Justice & psychology. I am also a CEO/Founder of an aspiring non-profit organization, that raise's awareness & provides support for those affected by any type of facial condition or illness.

I am a mother before anything & everything else.I have two boys that are my world. My oldest will be 3 in November & my youngest is almost a year old. I am a full time mom, & plan on being out of school before my oldest starts school.

By obtaining more scholarships along my college journey, I can use this to complete school faster & with less financial burdens. In my mind - me bettering myself &opening up more opportunities for myself in the future, is me trying to do, or be "better" for my kids to be able to do as well as possible, or have more opportunities opened up to them, as a result of my choices and hard work. It's my ultimate goal to be the best person I can be so my kids can want better for them self.

After I am awarded my Bachelor's degree I plan on going back to school to earn a bachelor's in psychology. I currently am working on Bachelors degree in Technical Management with Criminal Justice as my major & Psychology as a minor.

Forensic Psychologist, that is the ultimate career I am aiming to obtain. I recently have became very interesting in becoming an online college professor later in life. I think this is the career I will enter into after I retire from being a forensic psychologist.

I am currently in college part-time due to my financial assistance, I would love nothing more than to be able to afford to be a full-time student, even if it's only for a semester or two. I have no outside help, & have reach my aggregated loan limits - meaning I no longer can take out any more student loans toward this undergrad degree.

I am in hope of obtaining scholarships, and switching my status from part-time to full-time. This will allow me to finish school a lot faster, as a result of that, I will be able to get a better paying job faster, and can start on my next degree and next goal.

I want to wish you all the best of luck in obtaining the scholarships offered weekly here at CollegeNet, and also wanted to say Thank You ahead of time - to those who vote for me for both taking the time to vote for me and for helping me achieve my goals.

¡Hola! Soy Michelle, y me gustaría ser vuestra amiga. Pero, hasta entonces, podéis llegar a conocerme por mis mensajes.

Translation: Hello! My name is Michelle, and I would like to be your friend. But, until then, you can get to know me through my posts.

Here´s a few secrets I´ll let you in on:
1) I absolutely love learning - any subject will do, as long as it provides me with continuous opportunities to absorb wisdom and/or knowledge.
2) Me encanta español, como ya podéis ver. If you can understand what I have just written, I already like you. :-)
3) I love thinking, and often spend hours pondering any one topic.
4) I have a strange attraction to the pipe organ and baroque-period classical music in general.
5) I compose music as a hobby. Nothing modern, just pieces for organ, flute, string ensembles, orchestras, etc.

I figured I'd leave the intro, because none of that changed, but it's about time I update y'all on what I'm *really* doing with school!

Well, after this semestre, I'll have an Associate's Degree, and will then transfer to UW-Whitewater, College of Business and Economics to finish my Bachelor's in Accounting. Then, I plan to take the CPA Exam, and work for a small business, if at all possible.

However, that's just my career. What I really want to do is help people. My goal as of now is to take one or two people into my home (once I have a humble one of my own, of course), and feed and clothe them. Then, I'd like to take it a step further and partner with them for either their education or their job applications - whichever would best benefit them. As they eventually start earning enough to be financially independent, I'll help them in the final step of securing a place of their own. I may only be able to do this with a handful of people throughout my lifetime, and I'm okay with that. I'd rather be involved in helping those I know would benefit from my money more than I would, and developing life-long relationships with them, than just throwing a few dollars at someone on the street.

If the above description didn't clue you into this one, I'm a super compassionate person who just loves God and wants to bless others out of the blessings I've received from Him. I follow Christ wholeheartedly, and His love is an amazing gift - one that I love to share with others.

There's my life in a nutshell. :-) Thanks for stopping by my profile, and see ya around CNet!

Hello everyone! My name is Erica. I'm entering my senior year at the University of Maine at Farmington. I originally attended Sarah Lawrence College in New York for Creative Writing, but now I am pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Special Education after realizing that I want to teach! I am passionate about women's rights, manga and anime, and Game of Thrones!

I began CNET during my first year of college. I chose to go to a private college which put me in debt right off the bat. I ended up transferring to a public university and am incredibly happy with my decision since it is better for me financially and for my future job prospects. I am back on CNET because I am already in a lot of student debt and still need to pay for my final year of college. I work hard over the summers to save for school and always try to get on-campus jobs, but some semesters go better than others. I hope that CNET can help me become more financially stable by digging me out of debt and helping me pay for school.

In the future I hope to work with children with disabilities and their families. I want to help them achieve the best lives that they can, and I want to advocate for the lives of children and adults with special needs because of my love for children and what I've experienced by growing up with a brother with autism.

My life feels incomplete without a stack of books in my room, Green Day on my iPod, and my stuffed T-Rex named Emmett.

I love hearing the diverse perspectives of the people on this site. I am excited to be back in the CNET game and wish you all the best of luck!

I'm Teresa, and I have been participating on CollegeNet since May of 2013. I'm so glad that I found this site through a good friend of mine. CollegeNet has truly changed my life! If you are just perusing through the site trying to figure out if CollegeNet is something you want to do, I encourage you to give it a try! It takes a lot of dedication and work, but in the end it will pay off and you will learn so much from a very diverse group of wonderful people! I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer System Technologies in December of 2012. CollegeNet has helped me pay off 25% of my total student loan debt so far! Whoohoo!

Some things I like to do outside of work and Collegenet is chillin with my puppy Russle and spittin rhymes. He is aspiring to be a psychologist someday but will probably never achieve it since he refuses to get a job, or learn how to read. He’s such a free loader! I reside in Bloomington, Illinois, which is the 17th geekiest place to live according to Yahoo! News. It’s probably a good thing that I’m surrounded by my fellow geeks, because as you can imagine from my major, I am a total geek! ;) I also like to do at home arts and crafts projects, work out at the gym, and try out new recipes! I hope my profile was exciting as you hoped it to be, cause that’s all I got for ya!

Thanks for taking the time to read :D

My Name is Erin. I am a mother, wife and a nurse. I love life. My posts are typically either from work related topics, my toddler/parenting and most everyday life.

I joined CollegeNet to help pay back my tons and tons of student loans. I've completed about 7 years of college but I'm not a doctor, just a nurse. I never really knew what I was doing in life or where I wanted to go, so during my journey, I racked up the student loans. Lesson learned.

Good luck to everyone. I look forward to reading everyone's forums and comments.

I am a man of deep emotive feelings..often filled with sorrow.

please accept me for who I am...please

..I have grown tired of being an honest beggar..

...we cannot change culture. culture must change itself..

one cannot take from another that in which one does not have

~~bearlish~~spoken here

i do not wear a tutu, a funny hat (well sometimes), an umbrella..or ride a bike in a circle...


~~~driven by desire~~~ its my bearism. dont even think of using it as a screen name..understood!?!?!? dabear is a hungry sort..besides the usual nuts and berries...gotta have a little salmon..
ok...now about dabear....

"follow the evidence" (grissom) interpreted from a quote from ep220.

so call me "mr greycloud bear" if you please...or felt like the wind..or for those who know me from ages ago greatvoice (gv for short)

contrary to the gruff rough exterior and hard pounding opinions, i am a very kind, loving, eclectic person. I write as a hobby that evokes deep feelings, and have been published.i enjoy art and it's expressionism..from paintings and graphics to music and film. most people love me or hate me..isn't that life? **note** this is all to be a bit tongue in cheek. and with a bit of dry humour.

i am called a native english teacher because i teach english as a second language and my first language is english. i teach esl outside of the states.

i am also a doctoral (PhD) candidate in Adult Education. Who knows I may be your teacher one day in some other subject than English, perhaps cultural studies or something. I was a trainer before and I made people think. I used many tools in training as i do in teaching. It pays to think here too!

If you would like to vote for me here, that would be appreciated kindly! yes, you can vote for me! see the vote button!:)~

uggh research!and it won;t end!

for those who know me as "felt like the wind"...
i am who i am and that's all i can be
i am the water and the wind..my voice speaks with the crashing waves of life, and the wind is how my thoughts touch you. i am often quiet and never heard, but you know i have been there or here...

I also have motor skills issues, and though that is my issue, it also has to do with who i am and my words.

I am not one to believe in god, though I have my spirits that guide me. (there is a diff yes.)

"as we walk through this world..we will slowly see a path. it is destiny calling. follow it, and good will follow you"

I look forward to some great discussions and I appreciate insights

What a Great Site and Great People I have met. It really means a lot to me and changed my life for the better. If you are new here please stick around and give it a chance.

I consider Cnet to be a place I can talk with friends.

I wish I could say I return votes but the new system doesn’t permit that…

What I can guarantee is if you take the time to converse with me and write thoughtfully, I will most assuredly vote for you…

My Name is Eric and I am an aspiring social worker…

I have my associates in business administration
Exactly one year away from my bachelor’s in psychology
One year and a few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I have a 4.0 in all the courses I have taken over the last two years or so…

I am very happy go lucky when I can be and want to emphasize my humorous side…

If you have any questions feel free to ask me here or my email ericvictorvelez@gmail.com...

I cannot claim to have all the answers; in fact I am probably more confused and lost about life...

Once you think you are happy then it has a habit of changing… never content

“Life” the biggest four letter word I have ever said

My goal is to look, listen, and learn… so feel free to teach me, I am an apt pupil

Hi there friends! I just want to say a quick and huge thank you for all the votes, support, laughts, thoughts, and for the wonderful time you all help me have here. You are all amazing and help make this environment so great to be a part of. Truly, thank you thank you!

I want to do something different. *Evil laughing* If you don't gather from this that I'm rather creative, love to be goofy and dorky, and just love making people smile, then well..at least I tried right? But really now, I really hope this makes you smile. It's my Cnet Theme Song! Hope you like it!

Here's the lyrics! Follow or sing along if you'd like!!

"Im on this website,

All of my time is spent on it,
Trying to brainstorm,
Writing up forums,
That sometimes don't even get noticed,

Yeah I, I know it’s hard to imagine,
The minutes and hours we spend,
And even harder to think of,
Ideas that no one has thought of,

You say it's too hard to rank 10th
But I say give it a try,
And with all that drive you take in,
You'll be cruisin to the top,

I've had restless nights,
With thoughts of sign ins
And seeing no votes,
My heart sinks to the floor
That's when we gather strength
And our sleepy minds get overly creative.
