A $300 Trip to the Bookstore, and Almost A New Year

Oh how I love going to the bookstore. Only there can I drop 300 dollars and not think anything of it, and in fact, be thankfull, knowing that I saverd money by already having three of my textbooks. Command Line Essentials is what did me in. Over $100 for a tome of Windows XP Commands…. Ugh. Thank god I managed to snag an econ book from a friend, and already had all but one of my books for networking. As much as I hate to say it, I’m not looking forward to the new quarter at Clark nearly as much as I was a few weeks ago. The last couple weeks of being a senior in highschool have been lovely. Only having one class, with some awesome people, is great, and spending the rest of the day soley working on making the student store as badass as possible is just as great. Come Monday though, those days will start being filled with classes and college homework 😦


Damn You State Budget Cuts

Ugh. Even as a Running Start student, college is expensive. Yesterday I went to pay Clark College their $160 dollars. And next week I’ll be off to give them more money for my textbooks. All I can say, is that as soon as I’m in real college (off of the safety net of running start), I’m gonna be screwed. Even though I’m only paying fee’s (6.75 per credit + any misc. class specific fee’s) and for my textbooks, the out of pocket cost is pretty high. I guess all I can do is max myself out on credits I get for free as long as possible.  I just have to try and ignore the fact that in three short quarters I’ll be paying tuition :/
