My savings account is now less $2552.57 due to the fact that I paid for tuition. That’s only for the first term (September to December). My tuition for January to April is slightly less, and I’ll be paying that sometime in December. My school is nice enough to inform me how much I will have paid at the end of April 2009, how much I have paid and how I owe them. Luckily, I work so I can afford to go to school. And speaking of ‘being able to afford’, I found out that three of my five courses require brand new textbooks this year. That means I cannot purchased used books. That means I’m not going to be able to sell them for the same amount that I bought them at. Thank you, university, for screwing me over. However, since I am going to need new textbooks, I’m waiting until my courses actually start to buy them. That way, I can hear from the professors if they’re actually required/if older editions are suitable and then I can just hop on over to the bookstore and buy the new books if I must.
And more talk about money… I just went onto a website to ‘build’ myself a Mini Cooper. It’s yellow and black, has automatic transmission (since I cannot drive a standard/stick/manual) and comes out to $28,750. My, I have expensive tastes. And I cannot afford that. Yay for going to school for 4-5 years in order to afford pretty transportation options? I am just so excited. You have no idea.
