Rant: Why Are College Textbooks So Expensive?!?!

I know I’ve been gone a  while, but hey, I have an excuse *I think it’s an excuse*

I’m back at school, dorming as usual, living this college life *not really* – I was god damn busy, alright. I’m taking a total of 17 credits this semester, 5 classes, 3 are online *cause I very much don’t like being in actual class*.

When I tell you my books are expensive, I am not exaggerating at all. I’m taking:

  1. General Chemistry 1 (Major)
  2. Calculus 1 (Major)
  3. General Psychology 1 (UCC)
  4. Basic Spanish 2 (UCC)
  5. Women and Political Leadership (UCC)

The total cost of all 7 books came up to $1368. 

Wtf is going on. Is this what we’re doing now college? Y’all just gonna take my money like I have tissue as $100 bills? Seriously, how can this even happen?

That cost is when they’re new though. If you buy new textbooks, there must not be any other options or you’re ballin. So ashamed at the price of these textbooks. I can’t even.

And with this post, I’m back on WP. I’ve been training for basketball and doing schoolwork on the side *yes, the side cause priorities*, but I’m back…………for now 😉 

I know some of y’all know the college struggle!

Boy laugh then cry
