one thing i love about college is that everyone is so exhausted that nobody judges anyone for sleeping anywhere like
just rest your eyes
we’re all in this together
you are safe here

I got an email today from StudentDebtCrisis.org asking people with student debt to take a survey about their experience paying off their loans and dealing with lenders. They’re going to present their findings to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, so if you’re one of the millions of college grads suffering under a mountain of debt, you should definitely fill it out.
This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.
That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.
This is why we download.
college students, Bigwords.com is a conventient sort of search site that rifles through all sorts of online stores and ads looking for the text books you need, newest edition, you can look specifically for used books or ones with a buyback program, and stuff. and can be a lot cheaper, saved me $400 one semester
Can we amplify this a little please? I’m sure some of my followers could use this resource. Spread it around friends.
As though I actually wanted more than another hour of my day talking about a class I’m failing
sorry follower(s) who unfollowed; i’m all half-active now. s’what happens when you go to college — life comes out of nowhere and finds you.
for those who still go here, don’t expect too much activity. like i said, i’m a student now; have other obligations besides tumblr, so if you need to unfollow, that’s cool
my roommate just snapped on me…so that means i’m free to go off on her now for everything she’s done, right?
