How much are they going to cost you this semester and how are you planing on paying for them?

I already figured out that I will sell cocain for a few weeks just to get the dough, not heroin because that’s only good for the long run because it gets people seriously addicted, but cocain is more expensive than heroin and good for a just few weeks.

If that fails I will be selling little girls dressed in that pokemon outfits of your choosing, e-mail me if you want one and tell me the pokemon you want them to dress up as. Just remember no butt secks... you know, because they are young.

Tuition: $885
Books: $280

I've payed both off in full already, with help from my dad. Of course I do go to a community college, so it's going to be cheaper than normal. =]

About $300 when all was said and done, which suprised me, as I'm taking mostly computer classes, and almost all of my books contain a CD that has coding samples and what-not. I'd have figured at least $60-$80 per book, but it was more like $40-$60.

I don't have to worry about tuition, being in the Band and all. [Smile]

About $100 a book for each of calc, social psych and physics. Sux. Humanities was mostly paperbacks therefore cheaper. Total of around $450 for 15 hours

Tuition was free though. [Wink]

The most I ever spent was around $300. Once, I had a teacher require 11 books for her course, but then we only used 2 of them. I was really pissed about that.

Books: $656
Tuition: $3791

Total paid: $0
Aww, yeah... [Big Grin]

BTW, why are my books so damn expensive?! O_O

I've heard complaints about the cost of books from friends who went to college this year. My cousin goes to college (or community college as you yanks call it), and her advice; buy used books. At worse, you will probably be missing a few pages and have writing all over it, but you save $$$.

books were about $330

I paid using money I got from my job

I also had about $6000 saved up since I was born, that kinda helped me out last year

mine were $485.84 (college comp., three macroeconomics boooks [wtf], computing concepts and applications [this bitch was $104], physical geology, college algebra 1&2)

on the plus side, I got them at a store called "Big Dog Used Textbooks" and they gave me a free t-shirt that says "I got used doggy-style at Big Dog CSU."

you're a shitass, I paid for them myself.

i'm getting really fucking tired of listening to your stupid faggot shit about money. i'm working my ass off, doing 20-25 hours a week on top of a full course load here at school. yes, my parents are helping me pay for it. i'm sorry they have enough money to do that, because clearly the only way to be respected by a stupid flamer fuck whose only redeeming quality is the ability to sling insults at pokemon-playing shitgeeks in puberty is to work 50 hours a week at a shitjob, drive a 13 year old mercedes, and barely finish high school let alone so much as step foot inside a university. christ, the only reason you would even a click a thread titled "college books" is to troll it.

sometimes you need to just keep your goddam mouth shut.

Oh dear, I appear to have touched a cord, gentlemen [Big Grin] . I get 10.65 an hour now (I haven't worked 40 hours in a LONG time), the car is cool and classy yet practical, and I'll go to a university in a few years after some community college work. Sorry I've chosen the path less beaten. We all can't be Grand Am winners like you champ.

I flame because I grow weary of hearing the angsty bullshit that comes out of ones mouth from one that has everything. Your life is pretty troublesome for someone with a silver spoon born in their mouth.

More like YouKnowYouWannaPunchMe.jpg, am I rite?

take a look around, fuckstick. going to one of the cheaper in-state colleges and working every weekend to pay for it and a car payment isn't exactly "a silver spoon born in your mouth" (way to butcher that cliche, lol...maybe that's how high school dropouts say it).

i'm sorry your parents pretty much skullfucked you over. i really am. but I'm tired of listening to your fucking pansy crap everytime someone spends money. we've been poor all our lives; if I got a Super NES game that year, it was a good Christmas. now that we're well off enough that I've got the opportunity to go get a degree if I help pay for it, I'm sure as fuck not gonna say "nah thx mom & dad, keep yer money. i'm gonna go suck fuck in the world of climbing the retail job ladder for six years so I can one day afford community college."

i really don't even see what desirable Peebs-quality you're trying to defend by hitting me with cheap shots on fuckin' Azure Heights here. you might have a leg to stand on if you were getting laid by new and exciting girls every single night, but it's probably a safe bet that you're not doing that either.

Yeah, right we all know you've roofied every college slut within a five mile radius. And it's a saying, not a cliche'. You don't have anything on me, and trying to attack the girl pillar of peebs dominion, that's not a very good start. If you're gonna flame me do it right, I don't need to hear you fucking life story of Mom and Pops rags to riches. I'm going to bet you're hardly paying anything of your college expenses, so 'help paying' is a little strong don't you think? More like 'Daddy's gonna pay the 20 g's but I'll buy the books! oh and this bottled water...

You have it ALOT better than alot of people, so trash the fucking sob story. Go ahead and attack the fact that I dropped out, highschool is a pile or horseshit and holds no value at all in daily life, community college is a far better option for me because the classes are more flexible and leniant. and imagine having to pay for ALL of your expenses, concerning EVERYTHING. You'd cry your fucking eyes out. Now why don't you attack my posts instead of ranting about other stupid shit, pretty boy. The point is, if you didn't have your parents, you'd be lying in a ditch somewhere.

(take notes, kids. the two most bitter fucks on the forum are throwing venom at each other.)

i'm paying every dollar i make, dude. i'm not gonna cut class to go work more, sorry. and 20 G's my ass, what part of lower-tier in-state do you fail to understand? CSU is under 10 grand a year for everything (tuition, fees, housing, meals, expenses).

if anyone here's pitching a sob story, it's you. i know i've got it good; i just don't have sympathy for your bitter motherfucking attitude because of the way you see your life. yeah sure, peebs. livin' it up hardcore on the streets. you live with your friend for chrissakes, just because you're not getting anything out of your parents doesn't mean the whole world's pissing on you. i never said i was managing on my own, without my parents i'd probably be in similar position to you. and since when the hell are you making 10.65 an hour? last time we talked, you were pulling 7.10.

if a 13 year old jalopy you're getting in December counts as "having a cooler car", sure thing

yeah, but you'll probably wanna go ahead and graduate from high school first. i hear universities eat that shit up.

I'm enjoying the Pornbot vs. SC stuff.

I'm not enjoying paying $650 for my books. The cheapest book cost I have for a course is $85.

And my tuition is $5000 for a full year.

I really hate living here sometimes.

Lawl, maybe you haven't heard that you can get a diploma outside of highschool? I'm just getting my GED for now, eventually I figure I'll go for the Oregon HS diploma, which are both available at PCC.

So all together that makes it 17 grand Pop pop is slapping down for you. Oh you poor dear.

Yes I got a raise because I am the glue that holds my store together, plus I do cashiering now.

Your petty attack on the car has pretty much nullified any other points you have might of had. Just admit it's better than the Rambler you put-put along in and we'll leave it at that. "LOL used cars r 4 fagz" Eat shit faggot. Like I said, not everybodys parents uses hundred dollar bills as toilet paper. If you can come up with a decent reason to attack my car other than 'lrofalm its old u FARG!!!' let me hear it.

My friends parents threaten to throw me out everyday. This is far from some cindarella story. The FUCK everyone ain't pissing on me.

What now then? I told you, you can't go toe to toe with me like I'm some novice. No one can. Every word I say is like another slug to your face, and your shield of feigned indifference can only hold so long. Matching me word for word is nothing if half your words are idiotic banter. I think you should go ahead and find out if they teaching Flaming 101 at CUS.

BOOM and I'm spent

"daddy slapped down 17 G's", my ass. goddam dude. i was 6K short on the car, so instead of making payments to the dealership at horrid interest rates, my parents wrote a check for the difference and i'm paying them back at 0% interest. once again, I apologize for having a perk like this, for it clearly makes me inferior in the eyes of internet fuckoff Peebs. and isn't that why we're really here, everyone? not to succeed in life, but to gain pornbot's respect through lack of having anything.

and no, we don't pay the entire amount for tuition, fees, room and board in one shot. it's split into five payments of a little under 2 grand each dispersed throughout the course of the year. i pay what I can, and make a note of how much my parents contributed. i've got every intention of paying them back the full amount once I'm out of school and working a job with a degree (hey cool maybe you'll be up to 12.50 an hour by then, that would be kawaii ^___^).

for the millionth time, the car. i didn't say or imply that used cars were for faggots. i'm just trying to figure out what stupid fucked-up world you live in where a '90 Mercedes is "cooler" than an '01 Grand Am with nice pickup, a great stereo, and room to haul my shit. further, why the fuck are you taking shots at me for driving a practical car through college? i'd like just as much as the next kid to be out rollin' the strip in a flashy turbocharged chinkmobile, but I could have either been in double the debt I am now driving a used Mitsu 3000GT (omg sechs [Cool] ) with triple the mileage against it, or I could be realistic and drive something that does the job for now, then get myself a brand new Impreza WRX STi or Mazda RX-8 or whatever the hell's out that I want after I'm working full time with a degree.

spare me your fucking "u dun go toe 2 toe w/ peebsbot pokeyporn he si badass" trip. i told you, pitch that to the pre-adolescent furries you label 'faggot' to build your eReputation. i don't play that fucking game.

Did I not say I'm going to college too? Don't take shots at me because I get good money where I work now. You need to get your mind out of that little fucking box and realize there are more than one way to succeed in life, asshole.

I'm saying The Benz is cooler due to looks, and mine is coming with a good stereo as well (If not I'll put in my own.) If you're so interested in hauling shit why didn't you just get a Toyota Tacoma or something. Honestly, you shouldn't even have to ask me this fucking question. Fuck, a 70's Benz is always cooler than some fucking Pontiac anyday of the week.

Anyway, like I told you fuckhead, you'll play the game how I want it to be played. Go ahead and feebily atempt to defend yourself, but you'll just end up getting owned harder and harder. So drop the ego trip shit and take your digital bitch-slapping.

Well, my point is, stop acting like you're the cock of the walk, you're in the position you are today because of The Sechrests good fortune. You'd be in my position now if it weren't for it.

yeah, all these "big college plans" and "roundabout success" coming from a kid who posted a kmouth-esque high school performance, culminating with dropping out "because public high school is bullshit." excuse me while I sit back, hold my breath, and wait for The Empire of Successful Peebsism to rise once and for all.

i'm not going to argue with you about car preferences. I told you what I'd like to be driving. i've never liked Pontiacs, but the Grand Am does what I need it to at the right price.

the fact is that you've dealt with shit in your life and you're trying to make yourself feel better about it for hating everyone who's got anything. i've got nothing to feel guilty about. yeah, I've got a lot, but I work my ass off for it. i know that i've had plenty of help to get here, but that doesn't mean I should just give it up. it's really goddam annoying to walk through a campus full of Abercrombie & Fitch-wearin' Oakley's-sportin' kids (some of which are driving 3000GT's [Frown] ) that are free to party their asses off all weekend while I work to help pay my way, then have to listen to your whiny ass tell me how spoiled I am.

just save it.

My GPA can be repaired in community college, dickhead. Why don't you listen to anything I say. Don't be bitter because I'll have to work alot less harder than you to get in.

That's fine if you concede to the fact that I'm correct about the car issue. I don't see what was so fucking wrong about your Mazda.

I have no trouble conceding that you're not as spoiled as I figured, granted you still are a bullheaded cumrag if I ever saw one.

Thread of the year.
 
Posted by starCaliber (Member # 268) on 09-04-2003, 06:43 PM:
 
the mazda was a 12 year old car with alignment problems, a weak engine (struggles at highway speed limits), three blown speakers, and a new and exciting problem every time i drove from home to CSU or vice versa (shit like blown hoses, etc.). for as much as i'm on the road, it was a liability, and considering my parents told me I could pay them back at 0% for a car that's 10 years newer, I was happy to do it.

you're gonna have to put up with a lot of the same shit on your '90 Mercedes, which is why I can't figure out why you're so excited to get into the bitch. just save a little more and get something newer and nicer. at $10.65 an hour, you could come up with the green pretty quickly.

if you want to go on being hateful because of shit that's happened to you, great. that's your perogative. i'm not obligated to listen to it, though. you can keep your resentment and lose an ePal (lol ePal lol).

AS I SAID, My stepdad is a BENZ/ACURA FUCKING MECHANIC, which is one of the MAIN FUCKING REASONS I made the decision to get the car. There is nothing wrong with used cars, if you know where to look, so age isn't a factor to me with my price range. The car is nice as fuck (my stepdad owns one, it has 200,000k miles and has some interior damage though which is why I don't want his) It's perfect for me. It's the car I nut in my dreams about.

I swear if you would fucking read my posts we wouldn't be having this argument.
