    Video game scholarships

    This may be old news, but I thought I'd share any way.

    Penny Arcade is offering a $10,000 scholarship for students who plan to work in the video game industry. You need to send in 2 recommendations, a 2 page essay, and stuff that can be easily done by filling out forms (current transcript, enrollment verification, etc.).

    The ESA is also offering a few scholarships for women and minorities.

    I found out about both of these from gamingangel over at the girl_gamers community on LJ.

    I've been working on my essay for Penny Arcade since Saturday and I should have finished it by now, but I keep getting distracted (this post is a distraction). My games need attention! :(

    Not my Turning Point gaming rig

    This is my gaming setup in my college dorm.

    Yes, my computer monitor is bigger than my TV.

    PS2, Xbox 360, TV, and girl stuff. I also have a DS, but I forgot to take it out of my bag for the picture.

    My sexy Shuttle! System specs are AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+ (2.8 GHz), 2 GB RAM, and NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS.

    Snorlax is the king of my games (his crown was made by elpoopacabra). My collection used to be bigger, but my older brother went to college and stole half of them.
