Motivation Monday

It is Monday and I am back it this blogging thing! It is the start of the week and sometimes we need some motivation. 

There are many times in which we do things and never think of how it is going to benefit us in the long run. When we are young, we usually do not think of the future. We tend to usually think in the present and go by that little saying Drake came up with YOLO.  Yes, You Only Live Once, but how is what we are doing getting us closer to where we want to be? Lately, I have been asking myself this question a lot. I think back to those four years of college and see how much I have grown and learned  and I continue to think about what I am doing now and how these experiences are shaping me and helping me for my future. Working with children is my life and I have to honestly say the actions of the past few years are helping me get to where I want to be tomorrow, next week and 3 hers from now. 
Sometimes it is important to take a step back and think about where it is you want to go and what exactly needs to be done to get there. Once you know that...everything will fall into place.

A big shout out to all the college students out there! Although I graduated undergrad in May, I will be going back to school this Fall. With that comes the woes of how in the world am I not only going to afford car insurance, gas and of course textbook prices! Over the past four years I have spent a ton of money of textbooks..until I found this little corner of the web! Campus Book Rentals

Renting textbooks saves a lot of money. When renting textbooks, there is no risk of your book becoming devalued and you can easily rent them online. So many people rent their textbooks, to be specific, over 1 million students rent textbooks. With Campus Book Rentals, there is no fee for signing up as well! Did I just say NO FEE? for signing up? Yes I did!! Sign up is FREE.

Now what makes Campus Book Rentals AWESOME!? 
-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices! WHAT?? YES!!
-free shipping both ways! WHAT??? YESS AGAIN!
-can highlight in the textbooks! 
-flexible renting periods!
-donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented!


What I love the most about Campus Book Rentals is that they donate to OPERATION SMILE!

"Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that heals children's smiles, forever changing their lives." With every textbook rented, a donation is made to this amazing charity that helps to make the lives of children who have cleft lip and cleft palate a chance to smile and not be embarrassed. 

So not only do you rent a book for class, but you also give back to a child in need. THAT IS AWESOME!! College students can get an education and make a difference in the lives of a children! 

WANT TO MAKE SOME EXTRA CASH OFF YOUR TEXTBOOKS?! I DO! You can rent your textbooks out! Yes YOU rent them out through Rent Back. I LOVE the idea of making money on textbooks that I have purchased in the past. I will be using this system this once this semester is over!!!

RentBack is new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own - to other students... which is awesome because it makes them 2-4x more money compared to what they'd make through buyback options! (selling their books back at the end of the semester) Isn't that awesome?! I think it is! Make money as a college student!! That extra cash can help you out! Trust me!

M.I.A Much?

Wow...I have been totally MIA for the past month! Work has got me going crazy!!! Getting up at 4am and getting home at 9am leaves me no time to blog! Oh and my weekend...I just want to sleep...or get drunk! haha

But really though my weekends are even booked! Thats the time where I catch up on errands, dirty laundry, food shopping and oh maybe a tv show or two..thats if I have time! 
I have the blogger app on my phone though...but it is not the same as using a computer...I may just have to get used to using it huh? & I can't even customize my posts like I can on the computer..ugh...I am just going to have to figure it out! 

I miss blogging and I really need to get back at it :/

I think it is time for a new car

So today I took my car to the mechanic. I was there yesterday because I needed to get my Honda Civic alternator belt tightened. Ohh and apparently I needed a new alternator because my battery light was on :/ Well long behold, after my alternator was changed, the battery light was still on.
are you kidding me? Yes that was my reaction! Like seriously?!? So it did not get fixed. So I have made a decision. I think it is time to say so long to 2001 Honda Civic. I need to get it fixed so I am able to go find a new car. But I have to say good bye to my very first baby! I love hondas so I might stay with the brand. I think I am looking at a civic between 2010-2013 that is in my price range. Ugh! so I guess I will be going car shopping soon :/
