Money’s important, right? Hah, oh right – it’s that thing you’re going to college to make more of.
Except you have to dump all the money you do have plus that amount times a thousand over the next X years to pay for it.
Anyway, I think you should know things about money. Like how to make more of it. And how to deal with things that typically suck lots of it away from people like a giant nuclear-powered vacuum on the back of a Gundam. Things like:
- Student Loans
- Credit Cards
- Super Expensive Booze
Why? Well, it’s not that money will make you happy per se, but:
“It’s definitely more comfy to cry in your Lamborghini than crying on your bicycle.” – dude on Reddit
It turns out that money is important. And, unfortunately, the average student is graduating with $30,000 in student loan debt. Couple that with a lack of personal finance knowledge, and you’ve got a recipe for disaster.
