Have a Messy Office? Enter to Win $1200

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Contest Factory for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Since the economic downturn started in 2008 I have heard lots of my friends saying that their job responsibilities have doubled and sometimes tripled because of lay offs and hiring freezes. As a result their office cubicles, desks are a mess, full of clutter, papers, objects, mail, etc.

I am sure lot of you will say that your office is not in any better shape. Well if your office space is really bad, dirty, or outright pathetic then here is an opportunity to win $1200 in prizes. All you have to do is to shoot a video of your cube/ office/ workspace and explain why you think it is horrible and why you deserve the prize and upload it on the Pimp My Cube Contest website.

That done now invite your friends, family, colleagues, and associates to log in vote for your video. You get points for everything you do, registering, voting, commenting, and inviting your friends etc. If your cube is selected by the Contest Factory judges based on the contest criteria including but not limited to the most votes, best/ worst video and the most compelling story etc, then you hit a jackpot.

The grand prize winner will receive a office update which will feature either a new high end computer system or new furniture (Desk, chair and decorations) or an snazzy entertainment package with high end stereo, espresso machine, etc.

Uploading your video is very simple you can use your phone to do that too. The more fun and witty the better the video will entertain and the higher the chance of winning.

Don't worry if you are afraid your video may not be the best. There is still an opportunity to win $200 gift card. One registered user will be chosen at random and awarded this prize at the end of contest period which runs from 12/5/11 to 1/31/12.

There is not much time enter the contest fast so you have lots of time to promote your video and get as many votes as possible.

Good Bye 2011 - Welcome 2012

2011 is almost over and it seems like only yesterday when it was Christmas 2010. Another year comes to a finish, 12 months of economic upheavel in Europe, 52 weeks of bickering between Republicans and Democrats in the United States, 365 days before the next Presidential elections in which Obama is mostly likely to succeed, not because he has been a gerat president but because there is no other suitable alternative.
Wow.... I simply can't believe it another year has come to a close... I am older by a year so is everybody in the world. Did I achieve anything great this past year, well apart from gaining about 10 lbs cumulative weight, and completing 2 more semesters and getting closer to graduation, I don't think I did anything significant this year. In terms of physical activity this past year was a mess, I hope to make next year more productive and lose some of the excess food stocks that have gotten stored in various areas of my body.
I know I have promised myself that I would compete in a Triathlon next year. It is not going to be easy, I need to work hard to get there, especially in the area of running. I have to hit the gym or the trail to start running, cycling and swimming on a regular basis. Discipline is the key to achieving all this and that is something very difficult to achieve for people like me.
