Happy Halloween

No Tricks, Just Treats With These Fun Scholarships

The one thing I miss from my childhood is dressing up and heading out with my friends to score candy on Halloween. I would spend weeks coming up with the perfect costume. Only something handmade and unique would do, so creativity was a must. Of course, being a natural redhead, I have donned Jessica Rabbit, Annie and the obligatory Pippi Longstocking outfit, but the majority of my repertoire leaned toward the macabre. Thankfully, The Walking Dead has provided me with an excuse to dress up once again, but it’s not as easy to get people to give me candy. I’m usually met with strange stares or told that I’m a bit too old to be trick-or-treating anymore. Maybe it would work better if I actually tagged along with my kids? Oh well, I guess I need to find something else to occupy my time tonight. If you’ll be staying home this evening, consider using this time to work on scholarships. I’ll even help you fill your goody bag by treating you to seven fun programs that require no special tricks to win.

November Scholarships

Scholarships That Are as Satisfying as Pumpkin Pie!

Can you believe that the fall semester is nearly over already? In a few weeks, you’ll be enjoying Thanksgiving and hopefully taking a much-needed break from your school assignments. Of course, if you’re a high school senior, this is a prime opportunity to get caught up with your college admissions applications and start working on scholarships. Any current college student is likely to tell you that there never seems to be enough money to cover all the expenses that pop up during the semester. For those who still have a few years left in high school, don’t waste the holiday break snoozing on the couch or filling up on pumpkin pie; instead, set aside a few hours to get a jump on your college scholarship search. The early bird may get the worm, but it’s the early student who wins the scholarship! Here are a few scholarships with upcoming deadlines to get you started.

Make Me Laugh

Laughter is the Best Medicine

Did you know that August 16 is National Tell a Joke Day? It seems like the perfect opportunity to share a good laugh with a friend or spread a smile to someone who may be having a rough day. My kids seem to come up with the corniest jokes, and although many are not that amusing, watching them deliver the punch line is always entertaining. Even when I am in a horrible mood, it is literally impossible not to laugh when something is truly hilarious.

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!
