I desperately want a bongo. My workstudy this semester will be about 1000 dollars. A bongo is a little more than 1000 dollars. I am a poor college student. Debt is bad, but I have years to pay it off. How is my Hemingway Impersonation coming along? In all seriousness, I really am wanting a bongo, but my parents are wanting me to just reduce my student loans. I don't need a bongo, but I am not really all that worried about debt right now. The responsible thing would be to pay off those loans, but it is so damn hard to want to pay them off while I am still in school.
