Hey /adv/, Im in my last 6 months of college (history major) and Im excited to graduate.

Im currently in a class/seminar meant to teach us how to write 20 page research papers, and I feel like I could come out of this class with a good writting example for whenever I decide to apply to gradschool.

However, my part time job takes time away from it, and I really want to get As on this and my other history class. Its in a dining hall kitchen and this week I was suppossed to work 21 hours but I fucked up my ankle so I might not go until next week. On avg. I work 17.

I have the job cause I've been saving money to take a trip to japan as a self reward and to finally build a PC which I've been wanting to do since HS. If I quit I can only do one or the other

Should I:

A. Quit and forgo going to Japan but buy the PC

B. Same as above but go to Japan and not get PC.

C. Stay in my job till graduatio

D. Quit, try to find a better job or an intership that still allows me to devote myself more to studying and look for a job after college.

If I had $2000 more in my account I would have quit immediately

Quit, put a raincheck on the trip, get a good paying job after you finish the class, build the computer, THEN take the trip after you have a good rig and job.

How much do you make at the dining hall?
>>
>>17980676
10.50/hr for 2017

Since its at state school taxes are weird and range feom 3-8% depending on how big my check is.

I got almost $3000 of which atm only half of that I would consider disposable, but my folks want to give me $1000 out their pocket once I graduate on top of a weekly $40 allowence they give me which I usually spend half on the weekends

I don't really have to quit now, its week 3 of 10 starting monday, I could consider quitting by week 6, thats about time the quarter gets hard.

I just need As in my 2 histotory classes this quarter and in 2 more next, which I know I can do but extra study time would help

>21 hours a week
>10.50 an hour

Are you me? I know this is your thread but how do you save money so well?
>>
>>17980667
I vote for

E. Master basic spelling and grammar before you start thinking about 20 page papers.
>>
>>17980775
Just don't spend it.

What I do spend tends to come from the allowance
>>
>>17980667

priority 1 is getting good grade in that class

pri 2 is saving $$

so yes on the computer and postpone the japanese trip
>>
>>17980667
Don't waste your money on a PC if you're doing it for video games. They're a colossal waste of time, especially for a prospective graduate student.

Also, furthermore, travel before going to graduate school because you won't have time once you're there (except for conferences if you do research)
