I went to pick up my books tonight. I already had a rough day, I had to have a few growths removed at a dermatologist, and then one of my fillings was coming out, so I had to get it fixed, and then I picked up my books for 175 smackers. How many books do you get for 175 dollars? You get two. Two books.
Yeah, I know. It's all worth it, blah blah. Whatever. That's a lot of money. And you're only eligible for student aid if you're full-time, so it all came out of my pocket, and thank God I can afford it. Still, it hurt.
Oh well. My niece's birthday is next week. How's that for a jarring change of subject? Anyway, point being that I would drop five times that amount on her if she needed it, so I should be happy to spend it on myself.
