I am a freshman until the end of the semester and when you are a freshman they make you live in the dorm. I guess it could be worse, but I can not wait to get out of here. I just can not get used to sharing a room with another guy. I have to think about what I can afford and I understand that I have to get on this before the point when I need it. You have to think about the cost of cheap internet service providers and whether or not you can afford to pay for it. I think that the cable company here has a student discount package that they give out. I need to look at that and make sure it is not a lot worse than it looks at first glance.You have to look at stuff like that to be sure that there is not some fine print in it that will bite your in the back side at some point.
Of course the deal you see written in big bold letters says 15 dollars a month or 20 dollars a month. However a lot of the time after you look closely at it says that this is an introductory offer. That means that it is good for three months if you sign up for a year and a half. Of course after the first part of they start jacking up the price until you are paying two or three times as much. That is what my Dad says at least. He can go on about this sort of thing for hours and he wants to make sure that I learn to look before I leap. Of course signing up for an internet package is not going to be that big of a deal I hope.
