Food and drink, beer and party stuff. I bought a laptop this year, but that’s about it.”

A new Playstation 3 and a reserve payment for Grand Theft Auto!!!!!

Or, at least, that's what I WISH I could spend it on. As it is, whatever is left over from class fees and books will likely be put towards back bills from this massively expensive but totally worth it summer program that (cheers and clapping) is almost over now.

Less that two weeks to go. I miss my house, my cats and my wife. In reverse order of importance, of course.

Gonna need the detox, too. 24oz beers are about a quarter, pack of cigarettes is around 64 cents. Zhonguo mei you yi yu wo shenti de jiankang. (China is not very good for my bodily health)

I like Marie's photo...even if she has a creepy stalker type and a headless person looking over her shoulder!

School budget: Seems I spent tons just on school supplies. Gotta run to the grocery store this morning and beg 5 paper bags which seem to be mandatory, as well. Maybe, if they won't give them to me, I can buy 5 packs of gum and tell them I want each put in a separtate paper bag. :)

i have no budget, period-well that is unless you count my Klondike Bar&beer allotment.

T, yes, I believe we must count the Klondike bar and beer allotment. They are two of the six major food groups.

I'm spending mine on a new pole! ;)

Since I am not a traditional college student, my back to school budget involves books and a few supplies for classes.

sunflower_sue 10 years, 5 months ago

Gootsie, I'd volunteer but in this weather, I'm afraid I'd get burned. Ouch!
