    How is that possible


    how


    is it from school?



    tell me it's from school.
    my $7000 loan for one 9-month semester of school is at 11.5% undeferred interest. If I make the 'recommended' payments, I would end up paying a total of $23,000.

    And that's just the half of the tuition the government won't pay. And just for one 9-month semester out of 24 total months.

    15$ CDN bulk bag of rice and 10 cans of tuna for 5.99 will last me 3-4 months. Vitamin C is extremely important as well. It's hard to eat healthy when you burn off everything at work.

    Also, buying the $1.49 fancy mac and cheese is better because you can make it into 3, maybe 4 meals.

    The cheap $.60 stuff is a meal itself.

    Better still buy macaroni, milk, butter, flour and cheese and have even more meals for less

    Yeah I'll be leaving uni with around $70 000 in debt. School makes it easy to rack up large amounts of debt.

    My tuition is 42k/year; rent is almost 2k/mo.

    As you can imagine, this means I need to take out loans. At least my interest rate is very reasonably (~6.8% iirc), and the government pays the interest I accrue while I'm in school on some of my loans.

    Yeah, since I have all sorts of crazy disposable income, I've been splurging on getting "Weis quality" hamburgers.


    Between Pasta and Burgers I pretty much cover everything I need.

    If it was a guess then yes, it was a good one. I had thought somehow you, in the darkest Lovecraftian depths of your subconscious, quasi-remembered reading a post of mine in the room/apartment thread (this was like 4 weeks ago).

    looks like chili on a bun with cottage cheese on top

    I may risk driving the quarter mile to taco bell after three beers, so cheap and so filling, but is it worth getting a possible bullshit dui?

    also I pay 200 a month for my house, everything paid, and a sheriff lives in the basement
