Flavor of the Month

I Scream. You Scream. We all Scream for Ice Cream!

There’s nothing I love more than heading over to my local ice cream shop for a huge scoop of my favorite frozen treat. On most occasions, it will be something in the chocolate family, such as mint chocolate chip or chocolate peanut butter, but sometimes I step outside my comfort zone and try something different. One of my favorite haunts, Bruster’s, serves up some of the most unusual flavors I have ever seen. My kids are partial to their Cotton Candy Explosion (Pop Rocks in a sweet, blue mixture), but my husband drools over the Monkey Madness (banana ice cream filled with chocolate peanut butter balls and marshmallows). Personally, I love their fall flavors, like Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake and Winter Wonder (white chocolate with peppermint flakes). With so many wonderful flavors, it could literally take years for me to sample every one of them, but I am certainly up for the challenge!

America's Weirdest Scholarship

The Weirdest Scholarship in America

Every year, there are tons of posts about weird scholarships. There’s the Stuck at Prom Scholarship where students make their outfits from Duck Tape®, and let’s not forget the duck calling scholarship, which has been mentioned so many times it’s just not weird anymore. Of course, no list is ever complete without adding the Kor Memorial Scholarship, simply because those who speak Klingon can use their talent to win it, although it’s not the only language eligible for the award. Last year, ScholarshipExperts.com jumped into the fray with the Zombie Apocalypse and Flavor of the Month scholarships. If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead, the zombie scholarship was made for you. Of course, I personally love the Flavor of Month because I have an excuse to sample ice cream. I haven’t found anything called ‘A Hot Mess’ yet, so my search continues. Now, ScholarshipExperts.com has done it again and launched a totally new scholarship that may just be the weirdest award I have ever seen.

College Scholarship

How Could $3,000 Change Your Life?

If you won $3,000, you could rent a 500 square foot apartment in New York City’s East Village for one month or purchase a Samsung Smart 3D television. There are also a ton of gastric wonders you could afford, such as the world’s biggest hamburger ($2,000) or a white truffle and 24-carat gold pizza ($2,400), which (by the time you add drinks, tax and tip) could easily consume your entire winnings. If pets are your pride and joy, you could spoil your pooch or kitty with a 22-carat gold thread mattress (crazy!). Personally, I would probably use the money to go see my favorite football team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, play against the San Francisco 49ers in London this fall, but that’s only because I no longer have a college tuition bill to pay.

Although $3,000 might buy some lavish gifts or trinkets, those items won’t last forever. Your college education, on the other hand, will provide you with skills and experience that you can use for the rest of your life.

Superpower Scholarship

To Be a Superhero or Villain? That is the Question.

If you could be a superhero or a villain for one day, which would you choose? I have often asked myself this question. I think most people would choose to be a hero; there’s something noble about risking your life for another. For some, a hero is one of those larger than life figures we find in comic books or on television. Others see the everyday heroes who live among us, such as the police officer who finds a lost child or the firefighter who risks his life to save your cat from a burning building. The actual definition of a superhero is ‘someone who possesses extraordinary or superhuman powers,’ but that can describe just about anyone given the right circumstances.

Introducing ‘Shark Tank’ for Scholarships!

Shark TankI am a huge fan of the ABC television show Shark Tank. Each week, I tune in to see what new invention will send Mark Cuban, Mr. Wonderful, and the rest of the millionaires into a feeding frenzy. It’s quite entertaining to see the presenters squirm and stammer, as they try to convince everyone to invest. Although many walk away empty-handed, the exposure alone can help save their product from being shelved, so the stress is definitely worth it. In the past, I have actually tinkered with a few ideas myself.  Two of my ideas include stackable cribs for daycare centers (my husband said they looked like mini-prison cells) and a game that uses professional athlete’s jersey numbers to help teach children simple math problems (What do you get if you add Joe Flacco and Peyton Manning?), but I never did anything with them. Still, I hold out hope that something will give me inspiration and earn me enough money to retire. Continue Reading…
