  • Sooo …Ummm… What are You Wearing?

    We are not sure why but dressing yourself before class is the most daunting task. What’s clean? What matches? Is that a BBQ stain or blood on your shirt?  Ugh.. I am already exhausted.  In your freshmen year you probably looked like a walking GAP catalog. In your 2nd year you are probably resembling a tree sloth (neither is a good thing). Like you, we spend  A

  • OMG It’s HOT!!

    This post is inspired by a broken air conditioner and insane heat permeating my apartment walls.

  • Textbook Cost Increase Higher Than Cost Of Living

    One thing I don’t need to tell you is that life ain’t cheap. Rent, insurance, gas prices and the cost of college may be overwhelming. You may even know that the cost of living has remained on a slight but steady increase for the last several decades. For example, textbooks have risen by 82% since 2002. That’s more than the

  • Boundless.com eTextbooks added to BIGWORDS.com Comparison

    Boundless.com has been added to the BIGWORDS.com price comparison.  It is a totally different type of eBook, so I thought I’d take a second to let you know what you can expect if you buy from Boundless.
