Title: Win in essay contest = cash!


Golden arm42 - February 9, 2009 12:38 AM (GMT)
Well, despite how much I miss everyone in this clan and being a part of it (glad to hear how well the combat contest went, many thanks to its organizers! :P), I have, fortunately, been using my new-found time to good effect. Yesterday, I received notice that a civics essay I wrote took first place in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, and as a result, I've won either $1,250, $2,500, or $5,000! I won't know which of the three yet until March, but even if it's the lowest amount, that's a lot of $$$, especially with the economy so bad! bannana

P2p is way better. Plus, you can die instantly, get really frustrated, and stop playing for a week :)

Golden its up to you what to do with the money, but you won't get it now, and you won't get it for a few weeks. Think about what to do with this money you have earned. Will you spend it to help the economy? Will you get P2p (I hope you do, but your choice ;) ) Will you save it in a banking account to spend when you think is neccessary? Find out when Golden gets his BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG check!

Congrats, spend your hard earnt money well (AKA not Members). :P

His parents are probably going to take the check and save it for Golden when he goes to college :P

Or he could do what some ppl do. Half the money goes to him, and half goes to the bank.

I think the folks are going to put it in savings...bad for me now but good for me later. I really don't buy many things in real life so it's not a huge loss.

Lamb is trying to brainwash convince me on the merits of P2P. :P
