Free Amazon Prime for students
Amazon is currently giving free 1 year memberships to Amazon Prime (free 2 day shipping, $3.99 overnight shipping) to current students with a .edu email address: http://www.amazon.com/gp/student/signup/info I'm not sure how long they're offering this (it doesn't say on the site).

Just thought i'd give fellow students the heads up on this in case you haven't heard about it yet. This is going to save me a ton on shipping textbooks this year!

Blood Transfusion For 3 Year Old Cancer Patient
Ian Musgrove is at South Central Regional Medical Center, and he has been waiting for a blood transfusion. The bad part is, they are totally out of O- and B-, so he can't get one. The number for SCRMC in Laurel is 601-649-4000, if you have this blood type and can donate. My Mom is O-, but she can't donate due to some of the medication she has to take. If any of you can, or know someone who can, please help them out. I am a cancer survivor, so this hits really close to home for me. A lot of people stepped up to the plate for me, when there was a blood drive for me. You'd be amazed how much of a difference a transfusion makes in how you feel overall and your body's ability to heal. If you have a different blood type and can donate, that's still blood that Ian's family won't have to pay for. They give it to them as a credit. So please help out in any way you can, whether it be donating or spreading the word.

This is the little boy who needs the transfusion:

If you live in the area and don't have transportation, I will drive you myself.

Otakon: Baltimore Anime Convention
From Hattiesburg to Baltimore! Let's GO!!!

Every year when Otakon is only a month away, I open up invitations for local folk to come with my friends and I.
This year, we're flying instead of driving, so the price is highly determined by your plane ticket.

You can still pre-register for Otakon at the at-door rate of $65.

If you've never been to an anime convention, before, Otakon is a great con to start with! It is huuuuuuge and every minute of your days and nights can be spent enjoying yourself. We take over downtown Baltimore so you'll see video game characters and anime characters at every cafe and restuarant for miles around. If you want to sight-see; the Baltimore Aquarium and other attractions are within walking distance of the convention center and hotels.

My group got a hotel across the street from the convention center instead of blocks away. I'm also giving a small post-con rebate to the people traveling with me because I'll be getting a percentage of my costs refunded for hosting a panel. We'll be there Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night at a rate of $180 a night. We'll have a minimum of four people and a maximum of six in our room. The most each person will pay is $135 for the whole weekend.

If you're 18+ years old and into Anime, Jrock, or any other part of Japanese culture, traveling with us to Otakon should be lots of fun for you!

If you're a fan of Hyde from L'arc en Ciel, there's a VAMPS concert going on in Baltimore the night before Otakon starts. Also, at Otakon you can meet VAMPS and get signed merchandise!
We'll be there in time for you to enjoy

There's also a performance by Kanon Wakeshima (a new artist produced by Mana of Malice Mizer) that's included with your Otakon registration!

Check out the OTAKON WEBSITE for more guest and activity listings!

If you want to go with us to Otakon, you can comment on this entry or email me at bsq4u@yahoo.com (Make sure the subject line starts with "OTAKON" so I know what it's about!)

Looking for a roomate - need to find someone by May 1
I really need to find a roommate by May 1, if anyone is interested, or knows someone who is.

The rent is $292/month, and the deposit is $292.

The house is right next to USM - 2 houses down from Elam Arms, on South 31st Avenue. The current residents are 2 guys and 1 girl. The room that is up for rent has its own bathroom.

The lease is monthly, so if someone decides to move in, they won't have to sign a 6- or 12-month lease, and can leave whenever they want, as long as they give a 30-day notice.

If anyone is interested, or knows someone who is, call Chris at (601) 466-8259 or Joel at (601) 754-1226.

Looking for Artist/Designer
I need a sketch (or preferably a computer design) made for a custom ring so that I make take it to jewelers to get estimates. I can draw about as good as a 2 year old (I can draw in autocad, but I don't think I can wear a house on my finger, lol). I have many many specifics for the ring, and I can make some really really shitty sketches. So this might mean some face to face consults are needed to get this done.
I'm willing to pay.. and because I really don't know how much your time is worth, name your price and I'll take whoever is reasonable.
If you know anyone that's not on lj that can do it, please pass the message along.
please comment and/or email me.. tara.atwell@gmail.com.

Thanks! :)

Current Mood: hopeful

Earn money answering questions at your computer!

Hey, I recently joined a company that pays out for answering questions from users, its totally free to join, and if you answer quickly You can average about 12ish dollars an Hour.  I've already been paid twice from doing it.  People that sign up seem to have less of a chance of being accepted unless they have a referral from a member that's in good standing with the company.  I'm willing to help people get on board with the company. 

Its super easy and if you spend lots of time on your computer anyway, its pretty much easy money, and you can learn something. 

Message me or post if you would like more info.

Hey guys,

Hudsons got a Best Buy shipment in, and it went on sale today at 30% off. They're completely swarmed with shoppers this morning!

I priced some things on the BB website before I went in and it was ALL marked way up. Most items were still original price after the discount. A harddrive I wanted was $80 more than actual price. The videocards were marked up. The tvs didn't look like actual price to me either, but I didn't fully price those.

I imagine it's the same with just about everything. Just a word of warning... wait until they mark it to 50% :P

VOTE tomorrow!
An Obama volunteer here, just reminding folks to go vote tomorrow. Tell everyone you know.

Click here to find your polling place.

Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 11th. If you are in line by 7:00 p.m., you must be allowed to vote.

In Mississippi, any registered voter can vote on Tuesday by requesting a Democratic ballot at the polls. (In other words, you can be registered as a Democrat, Independent, or Republican and still vote for Obama.)

If you believe you were left off the voter list or otherwise prevented from regular voting by error, you must be allowed to cast a provisional ballot.

No identification is required at the polling place unless you are a first-time voter. If you are a first-time voter in Mississippi who registered by mail and did not provide identification at that time, you should bring a valid photo ID, current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check, or other government document that shows your name and address.

If you have problems or questions, call our voter hotline at 1-866-675-2008 and press 4.
