Everyone loves a Boston girl. This is the story of one Boston girl's adventures in the city, in blogging, and in getting through those crazy 20-something years.

I'm a writer by trade. And by passion. I'm a lover of food, friends, and all things Boston. I listen to music pretty much 24/7 and idolize Martha Stewart. I love my job(s), my life, and this city. Follow me on Twitter! @Susie

tuition makes me poor.

So today I basically depleted my life savings. Well I’m not entirely broke, but I should probably get a real job soon, huh? Anyway, I decided since I had the money and I really don’t feel the need to rack up anymore student loans, I would just pay for my last semester of graduate school and get it over with, interest free. Whoo. I tried to pay with my credit card to get reward points (yay Amazon gift certificates!) but they told me I would have to pay a $68 surcharge. Yeahhh right. So, right out of my checking account the money went.

I am still in shock over how much one class (+ fees) costs. Seriously, I really had no idea bc I usually just let Sally Mae take care of it. It’s seriously disgusting how much one single credit costs. For the price of one credit, I would be just a bit short of buying one of these. Yeah, that’d be nice. So for one class, I could practically buy four. But instead, I’m spending my hard earned money on education and my future. Go me. Ugh.

I don’t regret it, because I love school, will be happy to have my degree, and feel like I’ve learned a tonnn about the industry and about myself as a person. As much as I’m excited to be done, I have noo idea how I’m going to survive not being in school. I am so lucky that my parents paid for all of my undergrad so that I was able to afford graduate school on my own. Sure I have some loans, but education is worth it, right? Please tell me it is. Ooh fitting that we just got our rent bill yesterday, too…there goes another Prada purse. That’s my life right now…

…Anxiously awaiting the new Ryan Adams CD (Easy Tiger) which will supposedly be mine in less than an hour. Yay!
