College Life

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.

To combat high textbook prices I always use They are a textbook search engine that searches all the online textbook retailers (including amazon, half, ebay etc) and rental sites (including chegg, bookrenter etc) to find you the best prices. You can even use them at the end of the semester to search for resellers to sell your books to.
