I Caint Pay Ma Rent!


#1

Eff man. I need a job desperately this summer. My financial aid will probably carry me through the next month or so, but there’s no way I can make it through the summer without income or mooching off of my new house mates. Me: poor and brown. Parents: poorer and browner. Employer preferences where I go to school: blond, blue-eyed, friendly, self-motivated, confident, smiley, yadda yadda hogwash. Fast food places didn’t even call me for Christ’s sake. :frowning:
Anyone wanna buy a PSP? :rolleyes:

My life…

Welcome to the new economy. Where having a college degree means you’re slightly better off applying to McDonalds.


#4

Exactly


#5

Was just going to post that. I’m in the same boat though. Paying rent while trying to save money for life after college is a struggle. I joke with my landlords that I’m going to be eating rice and beans after I pay rent but I honestly do


#6

Referee, Umpire, official etc… I do adult league soccer games in the summer that pays out about $55 a game, so I have to ref 5 games a month to pay my rent.


#7

Dude where do you live, I “live on the cheap” and pay about 440 per month (including utilities not internet or cable). Most people I know pay around 800

Temp agencies.

Best summer job I’ve ever had. Made like $21.00 an hour delivering wine and other ridiculous odd jobs that I could never put on my resume, but it was great money for a 19 year old.

EDIT: I envy you guys. I pay $1485 a month in rent, though I do live by myself in one of the most expensive places in the country. Once my girlfriend moves in it won’t be so bad, I guess.

Land is pretty cheap in Middle Earth.


#10

I split mine with 4 other people, 3 bedrooms 2.5 bathrooms


#11

$260/month for rent, per person. But we live in the hood.

Also, re: money, I eat eggs for breakfast; turkey sandwiches for lunch; and spaghetti with pasta sauce, and a can of some vegetable for dinner. All day every day. You can’t eat much cheaper than that.

I’m poor.


#12

I’ll be paying about $1500/month in a year or two. Woot.

To help you out, I suggest getting a lot of resume help, then streamline sending out your resume to anywhere you can, and ask people you know that have internships or jobs if there are openings/if they can refer you to get the door open to the company or industry.


#13

I guess I’m pretty lucky I don’t have to pay rent right now, but I’m pretty swamped with student loans…already paid off two of them at about $3k each, but still have $25k to go with the rest. Bottom line: expensive schools aren’t worth it.

I’m currently paying 250 a month this summer while subletting a one bedroom apartment with one other guy. Starting August I’ll be paying 300 a month sharing with 6 guys in a 2400 square foot 3 bed two bath house in a nice neighborhood in St. Paul, but as long as you get a couple roomates it’s pretty ridiculous to be paying more then 300 around here.


#15

310 for rent. almost 400 when cable and utilities are factored in.

i eat out almost every day of the week.


#16
