Selling Books

     Shane and I are both in school. He is going to school for Marketing and I am going for History then my Masters in teaching. I received my Associates in May. I ended up taking the fall semester off deciding on going to a university online full time or go to school locally part time (due to work). I made my decision to late for this semester. So in January I will be doing online classes with the University of Maryland University College.
     Shane is at Tech(just like a community college in other places) working towards his Associates then onto Coastal Carolina University. He has another year of classes before he moves. We started at Tech because it is a cheaper way to get your core classes out of the way. About a thousand dollars a semester cheaper!
     He finished his last exam yesterday and sold his books back today. We were expecting $100 and was pleasantly surprised with $197. Yeah! A nice little surprise around Christmas time. A friend of mine also had a nice surprise. Her husband wanted something that was above her spending budget. So she wasn't planning on getting it. She then was looking for paper work and found a gift card to the store his wish item was at. The gift card was just enough to put the gift at their spending budget! How awesome is that?

That's called serendipity. Finding a gift card and selling your book for more than expected -- how awesome!

Congrats on getting your Associates. Good luck with the online classes. My elder daughter minored in history. Her major was math, and she is now a math teacher at a local high school, even becoming chairman of the math department! David and I are so proud of her.
