Hi there, friend. Oh, we're not friends yet? Bummer. We should be!

I'll start. Im Ashley. Nice to meet ya! We can be pals on Facebook too if you like! Go here: https://www.facebook.com/ashley.zirkle

If I'm honest, you'd learn a lot more about me here than on any other social media account I own.

I've come to appreciate the CNet community for so much, including it's ability to allow people to speak their thoughts freely, deeply, and express them in a way that doesn't always become some dramatic affair that usually happens on various other social sites. I appreciate that posters are passionate individuals who are focused on their goals. I appreciate that the people here academics who can hold intelligent conversations. I appreciate how each person offers new perspectives and experiences allowing myself and other readers to expand their minds and learn to become accepting, open creatures. I appreciate how this is a site that allows me to get some of my thoughts out that I wouldn't express in everyday conversation with some of the people I'm closest to. I certainly appreciate that I get to engage in all of this AND am given the satisfaction of lessening the burden that is higher education debt.

The basics that make me tick:

- I believe in aiming to be a giver of strength, love, and good vibes.
- I believe in giving back.
- I believe in the calming effects that is music.
- I believe in encouraging children how to dream and how to be sympathetic.
- I believe in crazy living room dance parties.
- I believe in seeing where your passions take you.
- I believe in dreaming big.
- I believe in working hard for one's goals.
- I believe in taking chances.
- I believe in the power of travel.
- I believe in the strength of connecting with others.

May your day be as awesome as you make it.
See you around the forums.

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'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 (five years now). I graduated magna cum laude in May from Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I majored 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." I wrote that years ago and can I just tell you that I have accomplished all of that! I have just started graduate school in my program at NYU!

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/Lidia63

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

My mini resume:
-I have interned and volunteered in my field at a hospital, school, clinic and private practice
-I have 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 and I am big into dancing lindyhop

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! My family is forever grateful!

DIY... Building a better me.

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.

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 and a bachelor’s in psychology

A few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I graduated with honors and intend to hold myself to a high standard for the rest of my classes.

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.

“Life” is 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 .^_^.

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!

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 26.25% 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 Everybody! I'm Lauren.

I would like a completely different career path--which means that I need to go back to school. (Working for attorneys has been...frustrating....difficult....feel free to add your own adjectives.)

That's okay! I'll go back for my MBA and RULE THE WORLD! (Actually, I'll start out being a Management Consultant, which is a better fit for my temperament, drive, and frugality.)

And here we are: I have found CollegeNet--something that might help me get back to school, reduce my school debt, and provide a much-needed creative outlet? Sold!


**By the way; a great big thank you to CollegeNet for providing this opportunity. This is completely unbelievable. I never thought I would be able to go back to school without drowning in debt. So far, I have won 1/2 of my Spring semester's scholarship money! Thank you again, CollegeNet, for giving me hope. Sometimes, that is all that we need. :)

About Me:
-I love people and would like to think I am a genuinely nice person.
-I worked my tail off during my Bachelors' to take out the minimal amount of loans as possible. Don't envy me--I worked 2 full-time jobs at one point. FAFSA assumed that my parents "would contribute", even though they did not, and my parents "made too much" for me to get much in the way of assistance. Trying CollegeNet this time!
-My first experience with college was not the best, and I am looking to avenge it. (You read right.)
-I believe that learning is a life-long concept that does not stop after school.
-I am ambitious and want to do good things; including continuing to design and sell t-shirts to benefit animal rescues, have our own old dog animal rescue, foster rescue animals again, found a non-profit to benefit debt-strapped students, write a sitcom, (laughing helps people) etc.

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 scholarships 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!

Hi! A huge thank you to any who voted for me! I just started here, but I'm going to stick with it. There are quite a lot of interesting discussions going on. I tend to be outspoken and opinionated, but i like to think I have an open mind and love hearing different points of view. Oh, and wow, I kinda love to argue.

About me: I think that like many of you, I am attempting to get through college as an older student without being in debt forever:) I am attempting a teaching degree with a French major. I feel like I have a lot to offer as I have spent the past ten years as a tour guide and traveling all over the world. I have ridden a camel past the pyramids in Egypt, done a 10k on the Great Wall of China and thrown my fully clothed body into the Arctic Ocean (this was slightly less enjoyable than the camel and the wall).

I do not regret any choices I made, only the choices I chose not to make.

I love to be engaged and engage others in deep thoughtful and meaningful discussions that aim at discovering the truth and to meet new people and forge many friendships in mine and other cultures.

Hi everyone!

I'm really excited to be here. I am a returning adult, so I already have a bachelors in something else, but I am getting my second bachelors in Computer Technology. The reason is because I wanted a "second chance" at life I guess you could say. The first time around wasn't cut out to be what I expected. :)

This month, I found out that my Financial Aid is running out because of my previous degree. Which means I will have to pay for school out of pocket.

I am now doing my best to find scholarships to complete school. I left everything to start over into a new career.. so please cross your fingers for me so that I can have my second chance!

Thank you SO SO SO much to everyone who has voted for me and I wish you all the very best! ^_^

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!! "

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.

Hi. My name's Megan, and I like math. And CollegeNET.

I was going to Seattle University, but I just decided it's too expensive. I'm going to be applying to a public school this fall so I can hopefully start taking classes again in January.

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 I love my job so much, my goal is to eventually teach math at a community college.

The plan is to finish up a second bachelor's degree, 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.


Anyway, I'm excited to start some conversations with you all.

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.

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 a 19 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 was born in 1973-- you figure out my age

I decided to put my email address on here. ctahro@msn.com (I have it connected to my phone too, so I will get messages)

I am majored in accounting

Mentoring advice--- I would say be true to yourself, the falseness will catch up to you in some of the best karma ways.

I am honest in all of my dealings, basically I think it is easier than lying.

I try to keep things simple. I am kind, I have compassion. I am me.(although life is not always simple)

THANK YOU for all of the help and support everyone has given me.
The help on writing, advice and understanding has been priceless. I am so thankful to have found CNET!

I think everyone on CNET is brilliant, I believe everyone is amazing. I think that everyone has a big bag of awesomeness.

You are awesome!

Hi! My name is Kate - I live in New England and I absolutely love it here. I have two young male cats (Bear and Jack) - they are still figuring out how to get along. I have a wonderful fiancee and a beautiful Jeep (2005 LJ Wrangler) that I spend any of my free time and money on. Nothing is more important to me in life than friends and family as well as being challenged doing what I love.

I have my undergraduate degree in Chemical and Biological Engineering with a minor in Business Management. I am currently pursuing a dual master's degree in Engineering and Operations Management - and I think I may continue to study Materials Science when I am done with this program.

Since high school I have always wanted to work with polymers. In my professional career I have worked as an R&D chemist for a tape company and now I work as a process engineer in an adhesives company. Maybe one day when I grow up I will move on to coatings!

Hi there, friend. Oh, we're not friends yet? Bummer. We should be!

I'll start. Im Ashley. Nice to meet ya! We can be pals on Facebook too if you like! Go here: https://www.facebook.com/ashley.zirkle

If I'm honest, you'd learn a lot more about me here than on any other social media account I own.

I've come to appreciate the CNet community for so much, including it's ability to allow people to speak their thoughts freely, deeply, and express them in a way that doesn't always become some dramatic affair that usually happens on various other social sites. I appreciate that posters are passionate individuals who are focused on their goals. I appreciate that the people here academics who can hold intelligent conversations. I appreciate how each person offers new perspectives and experiences allowing myself and other readers to expand their minds and learn to become accepting, open creatures. I appreciate how this is a site that allows me to get some of my thoughts out that I wouldn't express in everyday conversation with some of the people I'm closest to. I certainly appreciate that I get to engage in all of this AND am given the satisfaction of lessening the burden that is higher education debt.

The basics that make me tick:

- I believe in aiming to be a giver of strength, love, and good vibes.
- I believe in giving back.
- I believe in the calming effects that is music.
- I believe in encouraging children how to dream and how to be sympathetic.
- I believe in crazy living room dance parties.
- I believe in seeing where your passions take you.
- I believe in dreaming big.
- I believe in working hard for one's goals.
- I believe in taking chances.
- I believe in the power of travel.
- I believe in the strength of connecting with others.

May your day be as awesome as you make it.
See you around the forums.

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. :)

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

please accept me for who I am...please

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!

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.)

DIY... Building a better me.

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.

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 and a bachelor’s in psychology

A few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I graduated with honors and intend to hold myself to a high standard for the rest of my classes.

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.

“Life” is 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 (five years now). I graduated magna cum laude in May from Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I majored 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." I wrote that years ago and can I just tell you that I have accomplished all of that! I have just started graduate school in my program at NYU!

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/Lidia63

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

My mini resume:
-I have interned and volunteered in my field at a hospital, school, clinic and private practice
-I have 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 and I am big into dancing lindyhop


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! My family is forever grateful!

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!! "

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 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: Empty nest-er and working on my doctorate in education. I'm happily remarried. 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. My name's Megan, and I like math. And CollegeNET.

I was going to Seattle University, but I just decided it's too expensive. I'm going to be applying to a public school this fall so I can hopefully start taking classes again in January.

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 I love my job so much, my goal is to eventually teach math at a community college.

The plan is to finish up a second bachelor's degree, 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.


Anyway, I'm excited to start some conversations with you all.

Hi. My name's Megan, and I like math. And CollegeNET.

I was going to Seattle University, but I just decided it's too expensive. I'm going to be applying to a public school this fall so I can hopefully start taking classes again in January.

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 I love my job so much, my goal is to eventually teach math at a community college.

The plan is to finish up a second bachelor's degree, 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.


Anyway, I'm excited to start some conversations with you all.

If you want, you can find me on facebook at facebook.com/megrins

Hello, my name is Michelle. I am a wife and mother to a 11 year old girl and 12 year old boy. I have worked in the healthcare field for 14 years now. I love my job, and I am passionate about leadership and learning. I started my masters degree 2 year ago and I will be done in 2015. I am looking forward to being done, but the loan is ugly!

When I’m not working, studying or running kids to their sports; I enjoy camping, hiking, and reading. I am also a huge wine enthusiast! I look forward to posting, commenting and debating with all of you, and in the process pay back my college loans!

Hi! A huge thank you to any who voted for me! I just started here, but I'm going to stick with it. There are quite a lot of interesting discussions going on. I tend to be outspoken and opinionated, but i like to think I have an open mind and love hearing different points of view. Oh, and wow, I kinda love to argue.

About me: I think that like many of you, I am attempting to get through college as an older student without being in debt forever:) I am attempting a teaching degree with a French major. I feel like I have a lot to offer as I have spent the past ten years as a tour guide and traveling all over the world. I have ridden a camel past the pyramids in Egypt, done a 10k on the Great Wall of China and thrown my fully clothed body into the Arctic Ocean (this was slightly less enjoyable than the camel and the wall).

I do not regret any choices I made, only the choices I chose not to make.

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 26.25% 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.

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 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'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'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." I wrote that years ago and can I just tell you that I have accomplished all of that! I have just started graduate school in my program at NYU!

Hi everyone!

I'm really excited to be here. I am a returning adult, so I already have a bachelors in something else, but I am getting my second bachelors in Computer Technology. The reason is because I wanted a "second chance" at life I guess you could say. The first time around wasn't cut out to be what I expected. :)

This month, I found out that my Financial Aid is running out because of my previous degree. Which means I will have to pay for school out of pocket.

I am now doing my best to find scholarships to complete school. I left everything to start over into a new career.. so please cross your fingers for me so that I can have my second chance!

Thank you SO SO SO much to everyone who has voted for me and I wish you all the very best! ^_^

Mentoring advice--- I would say be true to yourself, the falseness will catch up to you in some of the best karma ways.

I am honest in all of my dealings, basically I think it is easier than lying.

I try to keep things simple. I am kind, I have compassion. I am me.(although life is not always simple)

THANK YOU for all of the help and support everyone has given me.
The help on writing, advice and understanding has been priceless. I am so thankful to have found CNET!

I think everyone on CNET is brilliant, I believe everyone is amazing. I think that everyone has a big bag of awesomeness.

My name is Courtney and I'll tell you a little bit about me. I am 20 years old and recently became a Certified Medical Assistant. I also just started a new job and I love it because it gives me the opportunity to help those who need it. I'm originally from Kellogg Idaho, which is a very small town, but I'll always love it, even when I hate it.

I live with my best friend from high school and our two puppies, who are spoiled rotten, but they are very loved. I am dating an awesome guy and have been for almost two years now, and I love my family more than anything. I'm very family oriented.

I plan to continue my education at some point down the road, and it would be really helpful to have a little bit of assistance with that, which is why I think this site will be a great experience.

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.)

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 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.

Hi everyone!

I'm really excited to be here. I am a returning adult, so I already have a bachelors in something else, but I am getting my second bachelors in Computer Technology. The reason is because I wanted a "second chance" at life I guess you could say. The first time around wasn't cut out to be what I expected. :)

This month, I found out that my Financial Aid is running out because of my previous degree. Which means I will have to pay for school out of pocket.

I am now doing my best to find scholarships to complete school. I left everything to start over into a new career.. so please cross your fingers for me so that I can have my second chance!

Thank you SO SO SO much to everyone who has voted for me and I wish you all the very best! ^_^

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 26.25% 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 Everybody! I'm Lauren.

I would like a completely different career path--which means that I need to go back to school. (Working for attorneys has been...frustrating....difficult....feel free to add your own adjectives.)

That's okay! I'll go back for my MBA and RULE THE WORLD! (Actually, I'll start out being a Management Consultant, which is a better fit for my temperament, drive, and frugality.)

And here we are: I have found CollegeNet--something that might help me get back to school, reduce my school debt, and provide a much-needed creative outlet? Sold!


**By the way; a great big thank you to CollegeNet for providing this opportunity. This is completely unbelievable. I never thought I would be able to go back to school without drowning in debt. So far, I have won 1/2 of my Spring semester's scholarship money! Thank you again, CollegeNet, for giving me hope. Sometimes, that is all that we need. :)

About Me:
-I love people and would like to think I am a genuinely nice person.
-I worked my tail off during my Bachelors' to take out the minimal amount of loans as possible. Don't envy me--I worked 2 full-time jobs at one point. FAFSA assumed that my parents "would contribute", even though they did not, and my parents "made too much" for me to get much in the way of assistance. Trying CollegeNet this time!
-My first experience with college was not the best, and I am looking to avenge it. (You read right.)
-I believe that learning is a life-long concept that does not stop after school.
-I am ambitious and want to do good things; including continuing to design and sell t-shirts to benefit animal rescues, have our own old dog animal rescue, foster rescue animals again, found a non-profit to benefit debt-strapped students, write a sitcom, (laughing helps people) etc.

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.

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 Abrielle. I'm 23.

I am finishing (hopefully) my last year of college. I will have a BA in sociology. I cannot begin to express how excited I am to finish this degree up.

I have considered getting an associates in Sonography once I finish my bachelors but I would have to move away and of course the money aspect is daunting considering the loans that I have already racked up.

Help me win scholarships on here! Yeah, that'd be swell :)

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!

DIY... Building a better me.

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.

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 and a bachelor’s in psychology

A few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I graduated with honors and intend to hold myself to a high standard for the rest of my classes.

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.

“Life” is 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 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.)

Hi. My name's Megan, and I like math. And CollegeNET.

I was going to Seattle University, but I just decided it's too expensive. I'm going to be applying to a public school this fall so I can hopefully start taking classes again in January.

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 I love my job so much, my goal is to eventually teach math at a community college.

The plan is to finish up a second bachelor's degree, 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.


Anyway, I'm excited to start some conversations with you all.

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 a 19 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 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 (five years now). I graduated magna cum laude in May from Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I majored 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." I wrote that years ago and can I just tell you that I have accomplished all of that! I have just started graduate school in my program at NYU!

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/Lidia63

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

My mini resume:
-I have interned and volunteered in my field at a hospital, school, clinic and private practice
-I have 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 and I am big into dancing lindyhop


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! My family is forever grateful!

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.

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 moved from Florida to New York about three years ago to fulfill my dream at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. My major is forensic psychology and I plan to go to graduate school right after I get the bachelor's. I volunteer as a mentor for the Big Brother Big Sister organization, and I work as an office assistant for work study. Although I am still adapting to the weather (native Floridian), I am happy that I am here and I feel truly blessed to live out my dream here in The Big Apple.

About me: You'll probably see me live promoting Jazzercise someday! You never know. Watch for that! It should be interesting. I love to laugh, and love to make people feel welcome.

I am seeking a career in healthcare, and need lots of financial help to achieve my career goal. However, I think I really just need more luck with getting my foot in the door in my career, and that would make me really happy!

I really like religion forums because it seems people are afraid to post on them.

I love dogs and wish I could have like a hundred of them. My profile picture is of my Uncle's dog. I think his dog is so adorable! He's a huge dog and as sweet as ever.

As always, thank you for your votes and support!

Good luck to all of you on Cnet, and with your education!

(In case you're wondering, I changed my high school because I don't want it on here. It wouldn't let me, and I contacted Cnet about it. So, I just plugged one in and it happens to be 4 Academy).

UPDATE: 7/5/14: Reasons I need your vote:
1. I can pat my head and rub my stomach at the same time. (ha, ha!) They do have a scholarship for this, right?
2. I have had some health problems lately with lots of medical bills because of these problems, and the scholarship money would really help with school.
3. Just because I didn't post on one of your forums one week, doesn't mean I didn't vote for you.
4. I was the first in my family of 6 kids to obtain a college degree, and I am also the first in my family to be continuing my education after obtaining my college degree.
5. Education is very important to me!
6. I would like to achieve one of the goals I set for myself when I joined Cnet.
7. I'm meticulous to a "T," if that really means anything to you. Just threw this one in there.

Thank you for reading my profile, and best of luck to you!

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 a 19 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!

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 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.

“Life” is 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 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.

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!

Hi Everybody! I'm Lauren.

I would like a completely different career path--which means that I need to go back to school. (Working for attorneys has been...frustrating....difficult....feel free to add your own adjectives.)

That's okay! I'll go back for my MBA and RULE THE WORLD! (Actually, I'll start out being a Management Consultant, which is a better fit for my temperament, drive, and frugality.)

And here we are: I have found CollegeNet--something that might help me get back to school, reduce my school debt, and provide a much-needed creative outlet? Sold!


**By the way; a great big thank you to CollegeNet for providing this opportunity. This is completely unbelievable. I never thought I would be able to go back to school without drowning in debt. So far, I have won 1/2 of my Spring semester's scholarship money! Thank you again, CollegeNet, for giving me hope. Sometimes, that is all that we need. :)

About Me:
-I love people and would like to think I am a genuinely nice person.
-I worked my tail off during my Bachelors' to take out the minimal amount of loans as possible. Don't envy me--I worked 2 full-time jobs at one point. FAFSA assumed that my parents "would contribute", even though they did not, and my parents "made too much" for me to get much in the way of assistance. Trying CollegeNet this time!
-My first experience with college was not the best, and I am looking to avenge it. (You read right.)
-I believe that learning is a life-long concept that does not stop after school.
-I am ambitious and want to do good things; including continuing to design and sell t-shirts to benefit animal rescues, have our own old dog animal rescue, foster rescue animals again, found a non-profit to benefit debt-strapped students, write a sitcom, (laughing helps people) etc.

I am honest in all of my dealings, basically I think it is easier than lying.

I try to keep things simple. I am kind, I have compassion. I am me.(although life is not always simple)

THANK YOU for all of the help and support everyone has given me.
The help on writing, advice and understanding has been priceless. I am so thankful to have found CNET!

I think everyone on CNET is brilliant, I believe everyone is amazing. I think that everyone has a big bag of awesomeness.

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'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!

ahhh, I see in my crystal ball many blessings for all of you posting on CNet!!

I came on here because I decided I was finally ready to share my thoughts outside of papers and presentations, and frankly, the somewhat empty Facebook statuses.

I am struggling financially, and I do not have parents or family to help me through these hard times and graduate school. However, this is not the only reason why I am here.

I see this as a place for healing, and for meeting people from all around whom have passion to express themselves, push past resistance, and have some fun along the way.

I look forward to getting to know all of you.

Blessings!

Sincerely yours,

Esther

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.

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.

Hi. My name's Megan, and I like math. And CollegeNET.

I was going to Seattle University, but I just decided it's too expensive. I'm going to be applying to a public school this fall so I can hopefully start taking classes again in January.

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 I love my job so much, my goal is to eventually teach math at a community college.

The plan is to finish up a second bachelor's degree, 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.


Anyway, I'm excited to start some conversations with you all.

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.

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!

Hey Everyone! I'm new to this site. I reside in Virginia. I graduated from Bridgewater College in 2008 with my Bachelors degree in Nutrition and Wellness and I have worked as Public Health Nutritionist for the past 5 years. I was recently accepted into the Public Health Graduate program at Liberty University, however, at the moment I am not able to enroll in classes for the second semester of grad school because my undergrad college will not release my transcript (financial hold).

I also need some help with paying for Grad school of course! :-) I'm definitely willing to work hard to get as many scholarships as I can to pay for grad school. I love helping people, so joining CollegeNET has been perfect for me. I get to meet new people plus help them get scholarships for they're education and they can help me do the same for me :-) I'm excited to get back into college and earn my Masters in Public Health. Earning scholarships through CollegeNet would be a HUGE blessing!



P.S. THANK YOU SO MUCH all for the VOTES SO FAR and I'm looking foward to continue voting for you all too!! You can also add me on Instagram @queenthemrs to see my college journey. Thanks again you guys!

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"

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.

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 and a bachelor’s in psychology

A few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I graduated with honors and intend to hold myself to a high standard for the rest of my classes.

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.

“Life” is 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 (five years now). I graduated magna cum laude in May from Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I majored 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." I wrote that years ago and can I just tell you that I have accomplished all of that! I have just started graduate school in my program at NYU!

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.

Mentoring advice--- I would say be true to yourself, the falseness will catch up to you in some of the best karma ways.

I am honest in all of my dealings, basically I think it is easier than lying.

I try to keep things simple. I am kind, I have compassion. I am me.(although life is not always simple)

THANK YOU for all of the help and support everyone has given me.
The help on writing, advice and understanding has been priceless. I am so thankful to have found CNET!

I think everyone on CNET is brilliant, I believe everyone is amazing. I think that everyone has a big bag of awesomeness.

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 want to first thank everyone for voting for me for a scholarship! I can't tell you how grateful I am and how I enjoy reading all of the posts. I only wish I could post more then 5 times a day and vote for all you lovely CNetters! :)

I'm adding an update since I've been here for about a month and love you all! My name is Steph and I live in Sunnyside California. However, I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri.

I currently go to school at Southern New Hampshire University and am in my last year of school. I graduated with my associates in Business in October 2011. I resumed school in 2012 to get my Bachelor's in Information Technology. I have this dream to work with our IT department here at work and so I started out on my journey and am almost done. Unfortunately, finances brought me here as I need to pay for my last year of school and my school actually directed me here! Funny how things work out!

I have two little girls, they are seven and nine. I'm a big ol' Disney fan at heart, if I could meet one person ever I would love to meet Walt Disney.

To all those starting out, don't give up. Keep your chin up and head held high. Like the movie from Hope Floats says, "She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will, too..."

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"

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.

Hi. My name's Megan, and I like math. And CollegeNET.

I was going to Seattle University, but I just decided it's too expensive. I'm going to be applying to a public school this fall so I can hopefully start taking classes again in January.

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 I love my job so much, my goal is to eventually teach math at a community college.

The plan is to finish up a second bachelor's degree, 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.


Anyway, I'm excited to start some conversations with you all.

I want to first thank everyone for voting for me for a scholarship! I can't tell you how grateful I am and how I enjoy reading all of the posts. I only wish I could post more then 5 times a day and vote for all you lovely CNetters! :)

I'm adding an update since I've been here for about a month and love you all! My name is Steph and I live in Sunnyside California. However, I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri.

I currently go to school at Southern New Hampshire University and am in my last year of school. I graduated with my associates in Business in October 2011. I resumed school in 2012 to get my Bachelor's in Information Technology. I have this dream to work with our IT department here at work and so I started out on my journey and am almost done. Unfortunately, finances brought me here as I need to pay for my last year of school and my school actually directed me here! Funny how things work out!

I have two little girls, they are seven and nine. I'm a big ol' Disney fan at heart, if I could meet one person ever I would love to meet Walt Disney.

To all those starting out, don't give up. Keep your chin up and head held high. Like the movie from Hope Floats says, "She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will, too..."

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!

I am honest in all of my dealings, basically I think it is easier than lying.

I try to keep things simple. I am kind, I have compassion. I am me.(although life is not always simple)

THANK YOU for all of the help and support everyone has given me.

Hello everyone!
My name is Denise Johnson-Mason. My major is Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. I live in Norfolk Virginia. I along with my mother, brother, and sister have relocated here. We all go to the same church every Sunday. I was born raised on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. I’m happily married to my husband, Tyrone Mason of nine years. I have two daughter, two sons, and nineteen grandkids. My children ages are thirty three, thirty one, and twenty one.
I started with CTU online on May 16, 2010. I was very nervous coming back after thirty years of not being in school, but I did a great job on my eight classes. Now I have transfer to DeVry University and nervous ones again. I think that it will be ok once I organized myself with the assignments. I passed my first class at DeVry with no problem. So now I will maintain the rest of the classes to get my degree with DeVry University. I think it was about the end of 2010 when I completed the last math class. It was five and half weeks long at CTU (Colorado Technical University). Math is important in my life because the career I have chosen very much so will involve using math and life overall you will need to be able to compreheceny math basic on day to day life styles. I have finish Algebra that was request for them courses and pass all of them. I love fishing with my husband and love work with resident that need help or can’t help their self. Working as a shift leader you have to thing fast to get think done in a timely fashioning. Algebra was hard at first but once I got into the homework assignment it was basely using the (pemdas) correctly it was find. The statistic course was very hard but I pass it by the skin of my teeth. The health, wellness and nutrition course help me to get back on track with the better part in life. Maintaining your health will help you live a lot longer.

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.

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 and a bachelor’s in psychology

A few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I graduated with honors and intend to hold myself to a high standard for the rest of my classes.

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.

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 (five years now). I graduated magna cum laude in May from Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I majored 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." I wrote that years ago and can I just tell you that I have accomplished all of that! I have just started graduate school in my program at NYU!

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/Lidia63

My mini resume:
-I have interned and volunteered in my field at a hospital, school, clinic and private practice
-I have 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'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.

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 ($50,000+ 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 8 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. In fact, I would like to start a family but before I can I need to get rid of the debt. I am running out of time to have children, and that scares me.

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 married to 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 and an adjunct professor of geology in CT (both pay me less than I made as a student).

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.

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!

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 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.

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.

My name is Hannah Ruth.

I'm Seattle-grown, Seattle-residing, Seattle-coffee-drinking young lady of 24 years.

I'm married to my handsome Honduran husband, and I'm the mother of a beautiful 11-month -old daughter named Sofie.

I'm a lover of language, arts, coffee, and traveling (when I can). I taught myself Spanish and took French in high school, though I wish I could remember more of it, and enjoy traveling to places I've never been and meeting new people and new customs.

Though I'm currently a stay-at-home mom, I'm also a graduate from Seattle Pacific University with a BA in Communications that came with a lot of college loans.

Thank you to CollegeNET and all of you for helping me pay them off in a fun, diverse community where I get to indulge my loves for writing and meeting new people! You are all wonderful!

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 (five years now). I graduated magna cum laude in May from Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I majored 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." I wrote that years ago and can I just tell you that I have accomplished all of that! I have just started graduate school in my program at NYU!

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.

DIY... Building a better me.

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.

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 and a bachelor’s in psychology

A few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I graduated with honors and intend to hold myself to a high standard for the rest of my classes.

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.

“Life” is 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 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.)

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.

Hi. My name's Megan, and I like math. And CollegeNET.

I was going to Seattle University, but I just decided it's too expensive. I'm going to be applying to a public school this fall so I can hopefully start taking classes again in January.

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 I love my job so much, my goal is to eventually teach math at a community college.

The plan is to finish up a second bachelor's degree, 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.


Anyway, I'm excited to start some conversations with you all.

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.

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!

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.

My name is Shaylin. I am 23 and headed back to college after a 2 year hiatus. Changed my major to Behavioral Science with an emphasis in Psychology and am excited to give it another go!

I am an outdoorsy person, and luckily I married one as well. My husband and I go on way too many adventures and spend way too much time outside... (did you get the sarcasm??). We have two dogs, a Brittany spaniel named Indy and an Aussie named Maeby. We love camping, hiking, fishing, kayaking, repelling, canyoneering, skiing, and just spending time in nature with our friends and family.

What I would LOVE to do with my degree would be to research schizophrenia in children. There are not enough resources for families of children with this mental illness because it is not super common, I just want to improve the lives of children and their families by providing them with answers :)

While I wish I was closer to the end than the beginning of school, I am ready for this next step in my life!

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 ($50,000+ 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 8 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. In fact, I would like to start a family but before I can I need to get rid of the debt. I am running out of time to have children, and that scares me.

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 married to 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 and an adjunct professor of geology in CT (both pay me less than I made as a student).

Getting to be with these three people everyday make my life complete and keep me striving to do better. I really am blessed!

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!

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.

Hello everyone!

If you are reading this, then hopefully I have made a major impact in a forum post. This is one of my many goals on CNet, to help make an impact no matter how small.

At the time that I am writing this, I am a student starting my senior year in high school, bracing for the challenge that is college. Chemistry is the subject I would like to study later in life via a career as a chemical engineer.

Though my dream career may not happen and is a long ways off, I nevertheless am taking every step possible to follow through with it.

I'll leave you with a quote that I live by, helping me find purpose and inspiration wherever I look.

"Never stop questioning the world around you. If you do, then you're wasting the biggest experience ever: your life."

Hello, my name is Michelle. I am a wife and mother to a 11 year old girl and 12 year old boy. I have worked in the healthcare field for 14 years now. I love my job, and I am passionate about leadership and learning. I started my masters degree 2 year ago and I will be done in 2015. I am looking forward to being done, but the loan is ugly!

When I’m not working, studying or running kids to their sports; I enjoy camping, hiking, and reading. I am also a huge wine enthusiast! I look forward to posting, commenting and debating with all of you, and in the process pay back my college loans!

Hi. My name's Megan, and I like math. And CollegeNET.

I was going to Seattle University, but I just decided it's too expensive. I'm going to be applying to a public school this fall so I can hopefully start taking classes again in January.

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 I love my job so much, my goal is to eventually teach math at a community college.

The plan is to finish up a second bachelor's degree, 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.


Anyway, I'm excited to start some conversations with you all.

My name is Shaylin. I am 23 and headed back to college after a 2 year hiatus. Changed my major to Behavioral Science with an emphasis in Psychology and am excited to give it another go!

I am an outdoorsy person, and luckily I married one as well. My husband and I go on way too many adventures and spend way too much time outside... (did you get the sarcasm??). We have two dogs, a Brittany spaniel named Indy and an Aussie named Maeby. We love camping, hiking, fishing, kayaking, repelling, canyoneering, skiing, and just spending time in nature with our friends and family.

What I would LOVE to do with my degree would be to research schizophrenia in children. There are not enough resources for families of children with this mental illness because it is not super common, I just want to improve the lives of children and their families by providing them with answers :)

While I wish I was closer to the end than the beginning of school, I am ready for this next step in my life!

Thank you for taking the time to vote for me! Every little bit helps and I feel so blessed!

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 (five years now). I graduated magna cum laude in May from Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I majored 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." I wrote that years ago and can I just tell you that I have accomplished all of that! I have just started graduate school in my program at NYU!

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/Lidia63

My mini resume:
-I have interned and volunteered in my field at a hospital, school, clinic and private practice
-I have 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 and I am big into dancing lindyhop

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

Once you think you are happy then it has a habit of changing.

“Life” is 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 .^_^.

Hello,

My name is Jess.

Double major in Christian Studies and Communications. In the last twenty seven years of my life I have understood one thing, if you care about something, learn about it! You will never know enough about anything in this life, and if it's something you truly care about, you'll never go wrong in studying about it in college.

I'm currently a "Free-lance" writer for several different clients, but want to eventually get into the business of blogging and writing professionally. I hope to use this site as a platform to educate myself on the opportunities out there, help others, help myself, and to connect. Feel free to contact me, I would love to make as many connections as possible, new friends, academic and the like.

E-mail: Jaxxman7@yahoo.com
Skype: Glitchedd

By the way,

Thank you to every single one of you who are voting for me and my future! I profoundly and genuinely appreciate you taking the time to read my posts. I'm also very grateful for the chance to get to know and vote for you too along the way.

Even though not all of us may agree on everything, or see life through the same viewfinder on certain subjects, it's awesome to have so many people come together on here to learn and understand in many different ways. Thank you for that all you colorful, crazy, and awesome C-Netters!

With nothing but love,

Jess

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 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.

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)

Hi! My name is Kristina.

I’ve put a lot of thought into my “About Me” section and, despite the fact I still haven’t come up with anything witty and fun to say, I figure I need to put something.

I’m a rather introverted person, so getting to know me is difficult. I’m the quiet, observant type. I’m quite understanding, loyal, caring, friendly, responsible, and dependable. If given what I consider a good reason, I can be very cold and judgmental. I’m also a tad on the spoiled side, competitive, insecure, naïve, and can be indecisive. I also have a rather dry sense of humor.

I would eventually like to get my Bachelors in Marine Biology and Wildlife Biology with minors in Conservation and Ecology. I know it would probably be easier to go for a general Biology degree, but I want the in-depth look that getting two separate degrees can offer me. Due to the rising costs of the education system, I’ve been struggling with transferring to a place I can get these degrees. However, I refuse to give up.

I’d like to wish all of you luck, both here on CNET and in your daily lives!

Mentoring advice--- I would say be true to yourself, the falseness will catch up to you in some of the best karma ways.

I am honest in all of my dealings, basically I think it is easier than lying.

I try to keep things simple. I am kind, I have compassion. I am me.(although life is not always simple)

THANK YOU for all of the help and support everyone has given me.
The help on writing, advice and understanding has been priceless. I am so thankful to have found CNET!

Hi!

**I want to thank everyone who voted for me! I was thrilled when I received the email! XOXO**

I'm Nejin, (pronounced Nesheen), I'm a newbie to this site and already got the hang of it!

I came across this website through my college's list of scholarship sites, and I'm quite glad I did. :)

I recently graduated from high school back in June, so I'm 18, and am starting my first year in college this fall! (ahhh!) Emotions have been running wild this summer as I'm beginning a new journey, and I'm looking forward to it. :) I'll be majoring in Child Development!

Fun Facts!

- I'm Kurdish and proud of who I am
- I was raised here in beautiful San Diego
- I love answering questions and being a part of discussions
- I am a very fast learner
- I have a fear of elevators (long story...)
- Cooking/baking is my passion
- I'm a bookworm (could even say book addict)

Need to or want to get in contact of me? My e-mail is: nejin_d@yahoo.com

Hi. My name's Megan, and I like math. And CollegeNET.

I was going to Seattle University, but I just decided it's too expensive. I'm going to be applying to a public school this fall so I can hopefully start taking classes again in January.

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 I love my job so much, my goal is to eventually teach math at a community college.

The plan is to finish up a second bachelor's degree, 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.


Anyway, I'm excited to start some conversations with you all.

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 scholarships 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'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 (five years now). I graduated magna cum laude in May from Pace University in Manhattan (let me know if you want to visit). I majored 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." I wrote that years ago and can I just tell you that I have accomplished all of that! I have just started graduate school in my program at NYU!

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/Lidia63

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

My mini resume:
-I have interned and volunteered in my field at a hospital, school, clinic and private practice
-I have 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 and I am big into dancing lindyhop

DIY... Building a better me.

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.

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 and a bachelor’s in psychology

A few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I graduated with honors and intend to hold myself to a high standard for the rest of my classes.

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.

“Life” is 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!

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!

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 a 19 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 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

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 like math. And CollegeNET.

I was going to Seattle University, but I just decided it's too expensive. I'm going to be applying to a public school this fall so I can hopefully start taking classes again in January.

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 I love my job so much, my goal is to eventually teach math at a community college.

The plan is to finish up a second bachelor's degree, 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.


Anyway, I'm excited to start some conversations with you all.

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.

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!! "

DIY... Building a better me.

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.

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 and a bachelor’s in psychology

A few months till I start my two year master’s program in Social work

I graduated with honors and intend to hold myself to a high standard for the rest of my classes.

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.

“Life” is 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 .^_^.

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. :)

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.

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.

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!

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!

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 a 19 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 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 ($50,000+ 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 8 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. In fact, I would like to start a family but before I can I need to get rid of the debt. I am running out of time to have children, and that scares me.

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 married to 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 and an adjunct professor of geology in CT (both pay me less than I made as a student).

Picture note: My matron of honor (and cousin) and myself the day of my wedding.

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.)
