Remember that ScholarPoint video contest I entered, the one about student loans? Well, I must express my sincere thanks to everybody who watched my video (thereby upping my view count), rated it (thereby increasing my star ranking), and, especially, left a comment (thereby propelling me into the final round)—because I just won the grand prize of $5,000!
When I found out, I cried tears of triumph and practically crapped my pants in excitement. I mean, all I had was a cheap still camera that happened to take video, a crew of one (me), and the editing program that came with Windows. And because of my mad genius (or, at the very least, brazen enthusiasm and streak of frightening opportunism), ScholarPoint is overnighting me a check today.
Regardless of your involvement with my video, I've found a way to reward my Bamboo Nation readers because you all give me a daily dose of encouragement in sundry ways—encouragement that has built to a point in which I feel can do things like pull down my pants, shoot that, and, with no hesitation, enter it into video contests. I'll make a special announcement about your reward in the coming days.
Anyway, show ScholarPoint some love by visiting their website, would you? I have to thank them for loving me so and choosing me!
And I have to scream once again: I won! I won! I won I won I won!
