So did you guess? Those are pretty obvious clues!  I graduated from SFASU {Go Jacks!} with a double major in Criminal Justice & Political Science.  Are you shocked?  Most people are!  What’s a nice, sweet, quiet gal like me doing studying about bad guys & politicians??!!  Buuuut I love it!  Court cases & politics…it just doesn’t get any better!  My hubby thinks it’s just because I like to get in other people’s business! ha!  I don’t use my degree too much right now but boy do we do have fun on election night!  I always let my kiddos stay up late & watch the results come in…we always have a big party!

Here’s a picture from Election Day 2008!  Smile

When I was in college just a few years ago Winking smile  I also remember paying a HUGE amount for text books.  I did like that we could sell them back at the end of the semester but most of the time I’d only get a little bit of money back or even worse they wouldn’t buy my book back because a new edition was coming out next semester.  Ugh!  Annnd it was always for a class I didn’t like…so then I was stuck with a book that I had paid a HUGE amount of money for!  I think I have a few textbooks in the attic!!! Really need to get rid of them even though I paid lots of money for them!  I just need to let it go. Winking smile

Now fast forward to now!  You can avoid all that textbook hassle!  Yay!  Have you heard about Campus Book Rentals? began renting textbooks in August of 2007. Since then, they've served thousands and thousands of students on more than 5,000 different college campuses around the country.

  1. I'm right in the middle of my bachelor for accounting.. I've never heard of this but I will def be checking it out.. Tanks so much the great tip!

  2. Thanks so much! My daughter is starting back to school next month. With two degrees, she has decided to pursue nursing. This should help a lot!

  3. It won't be long before my daughter starts college so thanks for the tips!

  4. I think you are wonderful to let your children stay up on election night and teach them at an early age to take an interest in how the Government works.I wish when my kids were young and at home I had done that. They are interested now,but civics might not have been so hard on them if I had let them get involved at a young age. I love your blog and want to thank you for sharing with us. God Bless .

  5. Thanks so much for posting this. My daughter will be starting college in the fall. Her school offers rentals, but this might be cheaper. Thanks again!
