I've been accepted to do an undergraduate degree in banking and finance at The University Of The West Indies.
I've been half preparing for this(read: vague plan in mind) but now that it is official, it comes as a major shake up to my life, plans, and goals for the year, especially financially and time related.
There is lots to consider and lots to do, and now more than ever will I need to have a budget. Responsibilities are growing and they weren't fully integrated into my plans.
I have lots of stuff to blog about that's back up in half written post and ideas, also projects I had planned to work on have been delayed. Add this whole university thing and I'm swamped. Not to mention the 90+ post that backed up on me in my reader.
So much to do, so much to do, many plans to make, many plans to modify, all require time.
I almost forgot to mention why the post is titled as it is. It's because as I was reviewing the fees for university, it was made clear to me where a lot of the taxes go. My country's government covers the tuition and economic cost for all nationals which go from $10000+ per year. I could have never afforded this right now without a loan of some kind but because of this; the amount required of me is unbelievably manageable(more will come on this in the future). Of course, this might seem strange but we don't get credits when filing for tax returns like I have seen a lot of you get, our system is a bit different and our country has always promoted "free" education. I'll see if I can do a comparison at some time.
That's it for today. For some other spectacular news, head over to From Shopping To Saving. I'll leave you to be surprised.
