Re: Your first boat

As a fellow Canadian student I feel ya when you say its expensive to live and be a student.

Average student is supposed to work 20 hours a week, and somehow pay over 10 grand in tuition, 2 grand in books, manage to feed ourselves (estimate 200$/month) and shelter (roughly 450 a month in Ottawa slumming it)

annually, this is ~$20 000, or $365 a week, or $19.00 an hour. Good thing minimum wage is only half of that.

I work two bartending jobs, make slightly more, but have a few added costs: Student bank loans of an additional 2000$ a year in interest, cellphone (roughly 1000$).

they wonder why there is an increase of students dropping out or defaulting on their loans these days.
