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

SMH

It’s been 12 days……12 DAYS since I’ve posted anything. I decided to give an update on what’s been going on, cause it’s been crazy. So crazy that I haven’t even been reading (I do have two book reviews ready though).

I’ll try to go in order of what’s happened since.  Want to read more?

December Wrap-Up

December was pretty hectic.

From college finals, to re-adjusting myself at home, to Christmas – it was all over the place (not to mention my sleeping habits were terrible most of the time).

I didn’t read nearly as much as I’d hope to, but here’s to January being better. Here’s all the novels with links to their synopsis and reviews.

Natural Hair Struggles – Wash Day

The Dreaded Day Has Come

#Random Post

Yesterday was wash day. 

First of all, if you even call the day you wash your hair wash day, you must already be a veteran. 

Yesterday was also the day I moved off campus to go back home for winter break. Can you see where this is going? I HAD TO PACK AND DO ALL THIS!!!

It sucked.
