What This Summer Is Really About

Typically for most students summer is a time to relax and enjoy life. For me summer is all about saving money, which means I need to stop spending money. Unfortunately my friends love to spend money it seems like. I really don’t have that option right now. Here’s why:

#1. Study Abroad (hopefully)
Next year I plan on studying abroad in Australia during the spring semester. While I hope that it all works out that means I really need to save money in order to do all the things I want. I also am trying to figure out how much flights are from Australia to Japan so that I can possibly visit family there.


Say whatever you want, but I must attend the Justin Timberlake concert. I am willing to forgo all other summer concerts just to see him in December. This probably seems extremely ridiculous, but I can’t help it. Buying Justin Timberlake tickets though isn’t cheap, which is just another reason among others why saving money is mandatory this summer.

#3. Gas
More importantly I pay for a lot of my own things. I pay for gas, my clothes (except for work, thanks dad) and going out with friends. On the top of those things gas is the most important, however, sometimes I forget that minor detail and spend gas money on other things. I am trying to work on that.

While this summer will still somewhat be fun, I definitely need to save as much as I can. This probably means that I will need to teach myself something so I can consume my time without shopping…
