I am moving to Columbus, Ohio in a month. I'll write a sentimental post sometime in the future. In the meantime: ESSAY CONTEST.
Back in January, 2006, I took the reins of this blog from a Mr. James F. by writing a sweet essay about my hatred towards DC. I also included some links to some previous work from my old personal blog and my column at the American University newspaper.
(If you're interested, follow the link and click around to find a photo of me and some of my very early writing. My bi-weekly column started in September, 2004 and went weekly in 2005. It's not that great. Give me a break, I was in college. It was called The Rusty Nail. If you're so inclined, happy reading.)
So, if you want to take the reins of Why I Hate DC, send an essay and some writing samples (not required) to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 6 at noon. And, yes, I am going to be an asshole about the due date. If you can't get shit done on time, then you can't blog.
The original essay contest rules are here and they still apply (except for the due date of course).
Good luck, ya'll. In the meantime, you still get another month of Rusty. My condolences.
