    A Changeup (of the non-baseball variety)

    Well, I quit my job about a month ago.

    I worked for a non-profit organization that depends largely on donations and in the past few years...there haven't been very many. I believe in the work they do but that doesn't mean I can afford to work for free. I was close with my coworkers and it was certainly a tough decision that took a lot of time to make.

    Anyway, I now have an opportunity to change things up a little bit. I found this contest for what seems to be a great internship in NYC this summer and I submitted an entry yesterday. If any of you have a second to take a look at my entry page and give me your vote, it would be a huge help and I would really appreciate it! Just think of it as practice for the All Star Game

    I tried to vote for you but it didn't like the fact that I'm not a Facebook guy

    If I'm not mistaken, it has an option to create a 'contest account' which is the non-Facebook option.

    Same thing here. Rare common ground.

    I used the non-Facebook option. I shun anything that says "sign in with Facebook". Guess I'm not the only one.

    Ok, I got off my lazy cyber-but and voted without facebook. Let us know how it turns out.

    An update for those interested - I didn't win. Seeing as how I found out about the contest 3/4 of the way through, my only shot was the wild card, which I didn't get.

    A sincere thank you to those who took the time to vote
