    Anyone else starting school and classes this week too?

    I need more summer vacation :( . The summer goes by way too fast and the semesters go by too slow.

    At least my stack of books for this year is half as tall as last year.

    I start classes tomorrow at my college, and I'm totally not prepared. Like you, I felt that the summer went by too fast. It didn't help matters much that I spent the majority of my summer taking summer classes, and it was only in August alone I managed to go away on two weekend trips.

    Luckily, I only signed up for two classes that are held on Tuesdays, so it shouldn't be too bad.

    Hey where do you guys live that you started classes 2 weeks ago?


    :lol  My mom tells me that. She always says I'll be sad when I have to work everyday instead of going to classes.

    I'm in college too, but I don't have time for parties. I am too big a nerd studying all the time. I have a 3.8 GPA though, it will look better on a resume then a list of parties I went to and got wasted XP. (That's what i tell myself) I should have gone to more parties as an undergrad.

    No there's 6 years in High School so we graduate when we're 18

    Though people can leave if they want after 4th Year

    Well I get my taste of "real world" as I like to call it, through my residence/internship.

    Last year it cost me about $800 in textbooks. Thank the allspark my parents pay for it.

    I pay for my tuition and textbooks straight out of the money from a trust fund that was set up when I was in the fifth grade after my paternal grandmother died. I typically pay between $400 and $700 for tuition, and textbooks generally cost me within the $100 range.

    I don't live on campus, but I eventually will when I go to transfer to Eastern Michigan University to finish my education in web design.
