You start to fall behind on responsibilities and your grades go downhill. There’s the potentiality of this leading to chronic stress, and let’s not even talk about the consequences of that.

Yessssssssss! The long-awaited summer holiday is finally here! And that means no more having to set your alarm to wake up early in the early morning, or racking your brain at midnight because of school work or exams. Yes, it’s the time when you’re allowed to set your books aside, kick back, relax, and binge on Netflix. Or…maybe not? I for one plan on dedicating a lot of time binging on my favorite shows on Netflix, but at some point, this might get a bit boring and repetitive.

The cost of textbooks for college students has skyrocketed over the past decade. A new economics textbook could now cost you as much as $300, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. It’s a known fact that students spend an average of $600 to even $1000 on textbooks per year. However, this also depends on which university you attend, whether private or state. But despite the fact that the cost of textbooks has been increasing, the same can’t be said for the amount students spend on them. How could this be so? Well, when prices go up, people tend to find ways to avoid paying such high prices. And it appears that students have also found a way.
Sure, being a college student isn’t one of the easiest things in the world. It’s definitely not like what we see in the movies, and it’s definitely not like high school. Even though we’re given the opportunity to create our own schedule, i.e choose which classes we want to take and on what time of the day, it doesn’t mean we’re guaranteed enough free time. We are tasked with keeping up with college homework, engaging in extracurricular activities, upholding our social life, trying to have a balanced diet, and attempting to have a consistent sleep schedule. Having all of this in mind, it would seem highly impossible trying to fit in some kind of hobby or any creative activity into the list. But that’s not true.

However, not everyone can afford such a trip, and there are a few options that can help you make your Thanksgiving enjoyable.
If you attend a medical school, you should definitely know that textbooks tend to be really expensive, not to mention the fact that the tuition fee and the study duration exceed all expectations.
