It's all about MONEY

I miss the days where the only thing that mattered is that we ate and got to play outside with our friends! The days before the worries of the world hit. Before we understood the whole concept of money, and why we needed it. And how come before you get to college it doesn't seem like you'll really be getting yourself into too much debt, and then you start realizing just how much money you need? I'm sick of getting nagged on about not having enough money, I don't want to spend all of my teenage life working! Isn't this supposed to be the time where I have fun!? Aren't I supposed to be a little immature and go into debt, spend my money on gas and movies? How come I feel so much pressure NOT to go out and have fun? But I don't want to "waste" my summer away working, it's not fun. I want school to be magically paid for, I want money to fall into my hands! I want all interest to go away! I want a job to magically land in my lap. I don't want to have to search in every nook and cranny of this town just to find a 2nd job! I want scholarships, an internship for next summer, but most of all, I want to have nothing to worry about! Yes, college students are poor, I've always known that, but I never realized they were more than poor! They can't afford that candy bar as they check out the groceries they already can't afford. They are spending hundreds of dollars on books, that shouldn't cost that much! Tuition..that's another thing blown out of proportion! Yes, I understand the professors need money, the college wants a profit...but have you seen the cost of tuition for a state university!?!? I'm grateful to be attending BYU-I where tithing has helped lower the cost of tuition, but seriously I'm going crazy inside about how I'm going to pay for this, yet the outside of me wants to just stop, take a break and say hey, don't stress, enjoy this time you have cuz you'll never have anything like it again! I mean, seriously, once I'm done with school life will be about work! Work so you can pay for groceries, rent, occasional hang out with friends, plus social involvment in church (not saying work, but how busy you become), then you get married and you are taking care of two people, then you get pregnant..oh dear! I mean seriously I just want to be able to pay for my tuition...I'm jealous sometimes of those kids whose parents pay for everything, yet on the otherside I pity them, they don't understand what it means to have to work for a living! I don't know, pretty much I'm rambling and complaining about money and how it should grow on trees...Well, I'm still searching for another job...oh and if you know of any scholarships I could use those too! haha, I hope you are feeling brighter about your finances than I am mine...good luck :)

  1. Things will work out. Find a job that is fun, but I agree working is boring. I have always hated to work.
