Gizmodo Lenovo Contest Entry

Hey guys... sorry about the lack of updates for a couple days. Believe it or not, I'm working on a cool little project that I want to write about. Honest. That's my excuse.

Anyway, a few days ago I saw a contest at gizmodo with a pretty sweet prize - a Lenovo (IBM) Thinkpad worth $1500. The task? Make a 60 second film noir movie.

I've never actually made a short or anything before. In fact, I'd never really edited video. But what's a better way of learning than jumping in head first? Besides, with the polyphasic thing going, I have time to enter every contest I see (by the way - no oversleeping or tiredness for the past 3 days!).

So today..

On The Tender Beetle

I have to go to my campus and submit an appeal for my financial aid.

I screwed up and slacked my first semester in college which caused me to get dismissed from the university. I was lucky enough to be given a second chance to go back but under academic probation. I took that chance.

The second semester, I repeated classes that I failed in the first (which thinking about was pointless, I could of quickly switch majors so I would of gotten higher grade). In the end, I didn't fail, but I didn't do so hot either.

So this past semester, which was my third -and final semester of probation- I did well, but it still wasn't good enough. Now with the financial aid that I lost because I screwed up the first semester, I received an email, stating that I won't be covered anymore.

Moral of the story: You're parents were always right for nagging you to study instead of staying up all night on Facebook or binge watching tv shows you probably watched 100 times. Actually put effort into study and getting good grades, cause in the end that will get you far in college and you are going to feel good about yourself.
