this is a pretty shitty cheer up thread.  though 1600 in 2 months is pretty impressive.  ive been going out 2-3 times a week every week since school started and im at maybe $4-500 spent.

well, keep in mind about $700 of that went to textbooks... so it's really around $900 (which was my work money + loan money)

lol, you only had $1600 to last you for the entire semester? And you went out for food? cool planning bro.

I'm through quite a bit more than $1600 so far, but then again my loan is a lot bigger as well so it's k.

I might not have had extreme financial skill when I first came here, but I know damn well not to take out a credit card without a job. Once I get one here (or in Albany), I'll open one up.

Err, I spent that much on textbooks too.  I dont think you can really make broad sweeping criticisms of peoples ability to buy textbooks without going to that school or taking that program.  Some of my courses have a different textbook every couple years so it forces people to buy the new ones with the different material... and as a freshman you pretty much have to buy all the textbooks since you dont have any from previous years (my chem book lasts me 3 years).  Insulting him for spending money on textbooks is just dumb, its a far better investment than going out.

Or buying them used, online for a fraction of the cost. I payed 20 bucks for a book that would have cost me 90.

HaiBai is 14 and UnkleRukus is an internet troll. They clearly know more. For shame.

And I'm not buying paper every month so I can print out the pages from books I need to bring to class. It's a ridiculous notion. You want to buy e-books/rent, go right ahead. I highlight in my Spanish/Macro textbooks constantly and I'd rather be able to bring the book to class if need be.

i don't have a credit card... what's the point when you can just afford shit?

run out of money? savings/family.

easier to pay back... no interest... no fucking credit companies chasing you... no shitty credit ratings

there's really just no need to have a credit card before you work full-time
