College education in the U.S. is expensive. I go to a government-run college but as an out-of-state student, I have to pay higher tuition, which is more than twice as much as that paid by a Florida resident. I also have to buy textbooks which costs a lot. Even the second-hand books do not come cheap. My friends in school usually buy their textbooks online and I have done the same a couple of times, too. The books are sometimes cheaper compared to those sold in the college bookstore.
I love going to school. In fact, most of my happy moments here in the U.S. are spent in school. I get to learn new things and at the same time, I am having fun.
The difference between school and life?
In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test.
In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson.
