http://www.animeondvd.com/images/contests/toyplay2.jpg Similar to previous figure contests, the generosity of folks and AAA Distribution has allowed us to give away another figure! As you can see from the picture above, we've got a new Toypla figure in our hands that would look great on any shelf. We're changing things up a bit this time however by focusing on our college aged readers. Most of you are now settled into your new dorms and getting into the college routine. We want to help decorate by putting this figure on your shelf! What we're looking for is for you to tell us how your life is going now that you're either back in school for a new year or starting off your first year. Use as many words as you want and the entry that hits us just the right way in that intangible sense will win the prize! Post your entries to us here and share with everyone how it's going!
Contest begins at 00:01 EST on 09/24/2007.

You know how sometimes things go weirdly for you? Like, you can't explain it. No matter what happens, you never understand what the heck is going on around you.
This is my second semester in the technical management program at Devry. What do you need to know? If you see a Devry building, run the other way. You will never get what you want out of going there.
I really have no clue what the heck I'm doing there. I wrote two papers for these two classes, and I didn't know what to write. I just copied and pasted from Wikipedia and other websites and changed the words a little bit. I don't know what sort of grades I got on the papers (they were big important papers), but I did get either an A or a B as my final grade in those classes. I swear I could've gone to the Postmodern Essay Generator http://www.elsewhere.org/cgi-bin/postmodern and gotten the same grade.
Socially, it's a rut for me. Everybody else has business experience, and me, I'm only a few years out of high school, and I don't even have a real job. I don't even think I've been inside an office building in my life. I feel so out of place there. I just keep to myself and read books, comic books, and manga. And right now everybody's talking about Halo 3, and I don't even have it because I couldn't stand the flood in the first two, so I don't want to spend 60 bucks on a game that I know is just going to be the same old garbage and only runs at 640p even though I only run at 480i. So, this is the most talked about game since Pokemon, and the only things it's doing for me is making me feel even more uncomfortable and locking up everything else on XBOX Live because everybody and their three legged dog is eating server resources. So it's like, I can't even relax in my dorm room, er, my parents' basement. If I try to talk to anybody in real life in response to Halo 3, I just tick them off because I'm looking forward to F.E.A.R. Files and SEGA Rally Revo.
And I've got this art class that is the epitome of everything I hate about school. The professor literally talks about grades every two minutes. "If you don't use the technical art vocabulary and relate your selected work to all the other schools of modernism, you will not get a good grade in this class." It's all about the grade. The grade. It isn't even about appreciating art anymore. I don't even pay attention in class anymore, and he's still ticking me off. I almost fell asleep in class last Thursday, and I've never fallen asleep in class in my life. I have a hard enough time falling asleep at night.
Now I've got this psychology course that isn't even taught by a psychology professor. On one hand, it rules because we got to watch Hoosiers. On the other hand, it sucks because the professor's a complete moron, and my fellow students are also complete morons. I took the online midterm exam last Friday (I was procrastinating), and when I went to class yesterday (yeah, Saturday class), there was only one other person who took it. The deadline is today. I was looking forward to getting the input of the entire class yesterday, but only one other person took the midterm, so I couldn't get the whole class involved. Anyway, the exam was retarded. The questions were the most subjective questions ever for multiple choice and matching questions. And the matching questions were beyond FUBAR'd. You know how with matching, you get ABCD and match those options with 1234? Well, he gave us AAAA and 1234. I know. I don't get it either. It was truly as ridiculous as it sounds. I asked him about it, and all he said was that he'd go back and look at it. I still have no idea what's going on because he's a freaking moron. Luckily I saved the whole thing because I'm not a bloody moron and intend to take a copy to the higher ups if this issue doesn't resolve itself.
So, I don't fit in, the place sucks, and everybody else is a bigger procrastinator than I am. I actually found out last semester that Devry employees get commission for recruiting students, and that answered a lot because I couldn't quite put my finger on it, but I somehow already knew that I was sweettalked into going there in 2004 for electronics engineering technology and then earlier this year when I switched to technical management. Don't go there! It's like that episode of Family Guy when Lois got talked into having sex with Bill Clinton and then Peter got talked into having sex with Bill Clinton. I was Peter in that episode. I could've been out of there last year with my associate's in EET, gotten a technology job doing something that is less sucky on the sucky spectrum than my current course of studies, and maybe not have continued being a miserable fool for another year.
