back to school

It’s that time of year. Time to start saying “I don’t know where the summer has gone” and “I can’t believe its September already”. That means it is back to school time, and for many post-secondary students that means buying lots of really expensive textbooks. I recently found an Ebates partner, BookMob that sells new and used discounted books. Being an Ebates partnere means that you get cash back for all of your books, which will be a nice bonus during the next payout time. You also have the option of renting books. Plus, once you’re done, you can sell the textbooks back to them. I received my books quickly and when I bought the wrong one for one class they had no problem taking the return. Another bonus, they’re Canadian so you don’t have to worry about crazy shipping or duty charges. Also, some American buyback places won’t except Canadian books. I would highly recommend them for the upcoming year. Happy studying!


Side note: I’ve also had good results selling my textbooks back to TextbookRental but they are not an Ebates partner. 

continuing education

I’m currently taking Marketing Communications from a university online. I took two classes this semester. I took 4 college courses last semester, I forgot that university is harder. I have a lot of assignments due this week. What is really crazy is I will be taking three classes next semester, if they are anything like this it will be a lot of work. I figured it would be easier in the fall because it won’t be as crazy as the summer. Is this something that everyone does? Over-commit themselves to many things? Am I the crazy one? I hate feeling as if I’m not doing enough. I need to constantly feel as if I’m doing something to enjoy myself, better myself or better the world. Other  people are like this too, right? I’d love to blog more today but I’ve got to get outside and enjoy this beautiful toronto sunshine!
next week, I’ll be blogging from Boston! Should be wicked awesome.
