$2,000.00 above the hole

So due to the raised cost of living as college student, I have found myself needing a little extra money this year. So I took out more loan money and I happen to be sitting on an extra $2,200 that I don't think I will need, and I am hardly using any of it, although it may wittle down over the next year, but keep in mind I save better than probably all my family and friends put together. So here is the challenge. I want to male more from what I have, as is the way of capitalism in the U.S., but I really don't know how. I tried gambling (blackjack) and made around $300 off that in 2 months but after losing once I decided no more blackjack for me. Feel free to comment, or suggest anything. Also, my bro has done a little bit of work with stocks but made probably only about $50 total in a few months doing that, so I told him to only do it if he can throw more in. Idk, what do people think? And yes, I am holding on to it cause I know there will probably come a time, granted work is hard to fin as well, that it will be used up. Learned that lesson the hard way before. Thanks!!

Wow! Sitting on an extra two grands left from student loan $$, you are a rich dude now.. May be slot machine/ roulette in Las Vegas' casino come in handy in doubling that amount of $$. Stock is way too slow in doing that, and is quite risky in today market condition. If you don't have to pay back the student loan, it may well going to the casino.

Yeah but no. The thing is no one ever makes anything off casinos do they? Millions of people do slot machines and plenty more spend plenty more than $2000 in a single day trying to win big. I'd rather sit on it. Might do blackjack one of these days but Idk.
