Austerity

Tonight we had a free cut instead of class (our prof hasn’t returned from abroad, I believe), and some classmates and I took advantage of the unexpected free time to troop to the bookstore to get the books we’ll be using this term. Usually I use more than one text for a class—reading two annotations is much better than just one, especially if the authors treat the same subject matter differently. But this term it seems that, in one subject at least, I’ll really need to use more than one book (more like six!) whether I prefer it or not. So many textbooks to buy, and they’re all so expensive! Looks like I’m in for some belt-tightening (figuratively speaking only, unfortunately ;) in the next few months. Poor me.

Ah, good thing you just got some moolah from the bank today. Maybe that will tide you over for a few days ;-)

hay, cayie. sounds like at least you got good news from jason's comment. as for my own austerity measures...well, let's just say austerity is not a word i understand well, but one which i should really have ingrained in my thick head! i'm sure you'll be able to work things over and survive. :-)

A very good thing indeed, Jason! Tamang-tama pang-gimik bukas ;P

Isa, pareho tayo. Except for spending it, I don't really know what else to do with money ;P Now it seems I have to start learning the hard way...

Hi Emer of Bangus Supremacy, right? Saw your blog on Mark's clickmomukhamo site. Luv the whole 'Bangus' thing--it reminds me of the Bruno & Boots books I used to read when I was a kid (you're probably not familiar with the series tho. I can explain another time :)
