Sometimes I love being a grad student and sometimes not so much. This post is for one of those things that I hate. I get a monthly stipend to attend grad school. Great right? No. Not so much. I only get like 1700/month. Which sounds great until you realize that you live the life of a regular job working adult. Rent, food, utilities, car note, car insurance, phone, etc. 1700 goes by very quickly considering these factors. On top of that we are not allowed to work. Shit sucks. Anyway i’m done complaining about my financial situation because I realize that it could be a lot worse.
