It's every college students favorite time of year....textbook buying!
What. a. rip. off.
Those dumb companies are making bank!
Since when was 200 pieces of paper worth 180 bucks?!?!
And despite all the complaining and ranting about the price of is a necessary but painful part of the college experience.
I cannot even count how many comments I hear from people buying their books about how "painful" it is, while I am the cashier ringing people up for $400+ just for books.
Thats enough for a LOT of taco tuesdays. Or slurpies. Or byu mint brownies.
But instead, it pays for books to make us smarter. Dumb.

becoming better

"We frequently may press forward hoping and praying—but without absolute assurance—that we are acting in accordance with God’s will. But as we honor our covenants and keep the commandments, as we strive ever more consistently to do good and to become better, we can walk with the confidence that God will guide our steps."
-David A. Bednar

I am now $40 richer. And what did I have to do?..... Sit for 3 hours. Well, and fill out a bunch of papework. And pee in a cup. And have a physical exam. And be asked a million questions about my whole life history. And then get a needle poked in me. THEN I got my $40:) Yep, I donated plasma. Most of the people there had many more piercings, tattoos, facial hair, etc. than me. The first impression of the type of people who go to donate plamsa isn't very positive....but oh well! I was a normal looking girl in there! And when I go back again I don't have to wait in line. And it's only the first time they ask you a million questions:) But I think I will stick to going to college so I don't have to be one of the people who donates plasma as their source of income. Ha.
