5 Reasons to Love Five

5 Reasons the Number Five is Fabulous!

The number five is everywhere – in music, literature, sports and more! Without it, some things just wouldn’t be the same. For example, could you imagine how weird it would be if there were only four Olympic rings instead of five (sorry Australia!) or the Pentagon had only four sides? Don’t forget about your feet. Flip-flops would never look right with just four toes. In England, children can start drinking alcohol at the age of five (at home), which may explain why the U.K. is number six on the list of ‘Smartest Countries in the World’ and the U.S. is number two. Even nature is hooked on the number five. Cut open an apple and you’ll find five seeds. Many species of starfish have five arms (Patrick!) and wild roses have five petals. It’s easy to fall in love with the number five when you see how much influence it has in our lives. Here are five other reasons why I think five is fabulous!

Funny Scholarships That Are No Joke

Tomorrow is April Fools’ Day, which kicks off National Humor Month. We have no idea why April is so comical, but hey…who are we to complain? We all could use a little more laughter in our lives. One thing that is no laughing matter, however, is the cost of a college degree. It can get downright expensive to pay for tuition, books, housing, and all those college fees. That’s why it’s so important to take time each month to apply for scholarships. Sometimes it may seem a bit boring when you have to answer those dry and dull essay prompts over and over again.  But thankfully, not all scholarship programs are so bland. In fact, we’ve come across a few funny scholarships that will keep even the most overworked and sleep-deprived students engaged and laughing. Take a look.

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.

Celebrate April Fools’ Day With These Funny Scholarships

The first day of April is always interesting in my house. I have four kids, so they find it amusing to ‘punk’ mom throughout the day. Even waking up can be fraught with peril; I never know if I will be covered in some sticky mess or step into something disgusting. I’m not sure how April Fools’ Day started, but my children have embraced it as a day where even their most outrageous pranks will receive amnesty. They don’t know it yet, but one day (many years from now) I will be helping my grandchildren exact some serious payback. I could start by telling my daughter I lost her college fund while playing poker, but that seems a bit too cruel. Besides, saving (and finding) money for college is no laughing matter, unless you apply for these funny, and a bit weird, scholarships.
