This week has been the best week ever.
Remember that fabulous show from VH1? I do.
I met the host, Chuck Nice, when I was a freshman in college.
Seriously, this week has been fantabulous.
I began my student teaching, and it wasn’t a complete disaster. In fact, I’d even venture to say it went pretty well. (I’ll probably post a separate post about that.)
My new job has been going pretty well, and I got my first paycheck today. That led to me grocery shopping like an adult and splurging on 20 yogurts, some sushi, and chicken. Yummmm.
There was a yogurt sale…can you tell???
Finally, what I’ve been waiting to share… why this has been the Best. Week. EVER.
I’m cutting to the chase… I’m one of nine NATIONAL FINALISTS to become Verizon’s next Ultimate Insider.
This whole blogging thing/ having my own website thing is really working out for me, and I found out last night that I’m one of nine (!!) national finalists to be the next Verizon Insider. If I won, I’d get a gig with Verizon through my blog where they’d give me a smart phone and pay me to attend movie premieres, interview celebrities, go to other cool events, and blog about it. I’d really love to win so if you want to vote for me (and share the link) I’d reeeeeeally appreciate it. You can vote as many times as you want by clicking here.
You know what’s even cooler than finding out you’re a finalist in a national contest to be Verizon’s Ultimate Insider?
Showing up in AfterEllen’s Morning Brew by Trish Bendix.
I’ve blogged about AfterEllen before so you know they’re pretty awesome… but this really was the cherry on top of my week.
Want to make me even happier? Seriously, go vote for me to be the next Verizon Ultimate Insider. There’s a snarky essay I wrote you can read, and a hilarious video of me acting like a fool in front of a camera. Plus, ya know, it’s good for the gays if I win. This is sort of like if Rachel Maddow were running for President… if Rachel Maddow were a femme, and a blogger, and instead of President she was running to be an interviewer on E!…
This is what the next Verizon Ultimate Insider could like. Just sayin’.
