Student loan stuff. Oy.
College Countdown: 51 days
I got an envelope of student loan stuff back today. I’m not going to say how much I got, but I will say that I got about $2,000 over the cost of my tuition and residence. I just hope $2,000 will last me. I’ll probably make around $800 during the rest of the summer and I have to try not to spend too much during my my road trip at the end of the month.
Of course, they took into consideration the amount of money I would be making over the summer… There was no place on the original assessment form that asked “Do you plan to buy a kick-ass laptop with a red cover, integrated webcam, 3 Gigs of RAM and a 17-inch glossy screen?” I would have checked yes, if they had asked. But they didn’t. That’s not unfortunate.
Of course, Mom said “Surely two thousand dollars would cover your food.”
Me: “And other stuff.”
Mom: “Movies, liquor, clothes.”
Me: “Don’t worry. I’ll just buy my vodka in bulk.”
