I’m pretty much ready to register for classes next week, right down to which sections I want, which of course means panicking about other people snapping them up before I can get them. One is already gone, I’ve got enough options to cover for it but if my whole system breaks down I might completely lose it.
For any of my fellow/future college students who might be reading this, I’ve included some links below. Anyone who signs up with my links gets themselves and me entries for prize money.
Scholarships.com – $1000
Noet – $500
Fastweb – $500
PowerWallet – $2500 sweepstakes that doesn’t really have anything to do with college.
Since I haven’t written anything interesting lately, I’ll leave you with these two photos from when the American Spirit got stuck on a sandbar in the channel between Mackinac & Round Islands while there was a storm going on off to the south.
