I am still a student now, and I find it really hard to cope with the financial for now. I don't say that it is hard for me to get pencils or what, but I don't think it is enough for me to get facilities that I need. I have to buy books, get some copies, and other fees. I think my parents feel it hard to pay them all since I still have 3 siblings to be supported. Of course the financial problems affected my emotional as well, I got depressed and stressed while I am no longer thinking about studying, but making money as much as I can.

I am studying communication in Indonesia. LOL. I am in the last year of my study and I can have some spare times to be able to get some money in those spare time. But still, I cannot do that in the real world because the economic condition in my country was really bad. LOL.

Being a student can be very hard sometimes ! i mean sometimes you have to scarfice your social life and many other things to achieve your goals for a better and successful education but after you are done being a student it should all pay off in the end. But enjoy being a student in my opinion , School years are the best years of your life..or so i have been told!

Hi there Lisa. I enjoy the free time that i have as a student and the holidays - i think those 2 are the best rewards i get as a student. Another perk is the fact that i have a 50% reduction of the public transportation fees. It's true that i don't really have money, and what i get i try to save as best as i can, but you can have money without working, right ?

hi elitess ni well icant have money without working then it depends on were you get your sources from be they mum dad or savings i only have to have myslf so i have to work unfortanatley its good though you enjoy im happy for you i just feel i cant really enjoy it as im so stressed ou with everything work finace coll its an overload sometimes ive also been studying for 4 yrs now so it gets a bit mundane struggling for that amount of time on your own.
