College has been the best time of my life thus far even though money is tight. Rent, internet and cable, utilities, Top Raman, and beer are just a few things in the average student budget. Textbook prices have gotten out of control in America. In 2004, the State Public Interest Research Groups did a survey that found the same college textbooks sold in America and in other countries, were indeed more expensive in America.
I recently went to Cabo San Lucas with nine other students of EWU. I had heard of all the danger down there, and, if anything, that made me more excited to go. While I was down in Mexico I was amazed at the culture and the Mexicans’ way of life. As we arrived we were on a shuttle to our resort and a Mexican Federally drove by us in an unmarked Toyota Tacoma with two shotguns on his cab rack.
