    I'm generally not one to gloat, but I'm sorry, this is very cool and I'm excited about it:

    I checked my mailbox today and found a check for $25 from USC-Aiken. Turns out there was a cash prize along with that fourth place award for the story they published in Broken Ink! So, I am now officially (sort of) a professional, paid writer! I know it sounds like nothing, but it's really exciting for me. Today was a good day.:D

    Since everyone's talking about beer, I got a question. Anyone ever had Rolling Rock? I'm thinking about splurging on some high-dollar beer tonight (yes, that's high-dollar for me), and I wanna know if it's good.

    Because 2 or 3 more bucks ='s 2 or 3 meals in my world, buddy! Truthfully, I'm just really cheap. In fact, while I talk big about getting some Rolling Rock, I'll probably just end up with Nat Light as usual. Also, the more money I spend on beer is the less money I can spend once I go out (though it's good to have friends who come from rich families, because once they get a few in them, they start throwing their cash around big-time:D ).

    Also, I think we may have already discussed this, but am I the only one who thinks Mexican beer sucks? Corona and Dos Equis not only suck bad, but they're expensive as hell. I'd drink Beast before a Corona probably. Well, maybe not Beast.;)
