    Well, I've been slacking off the entire month of July, and there's just over a week left for me to memorize the music history textbook as well as getting very good at music harmony writing for the exams... music studies are almost worse than school at this point.

    Just ordered my textbooks for the coming semester. Why are they so expensive? I rented a book that I could've bought cheaper off Amazon. Only reason I rented it was because I don't think I'll have to use it again in the future.

    Still, you do have the obligation of not damaging it (too much) since it's still not completely yours.

    I think I actually like Fahrenheit 451 more, mainly because I only got really interested into Lord of the Flies when (spoiler alert!) Simon got killed, whereas Fahrenheit 451 always had me questioning what was going to happen to the characters. It's still a good book though, and I really like the symbolism in the book.

    Are you allowed to order different editions for your textbooks? I heard they're a lot cheaper.

    They are cheaper, but that's only because most of the professors that had been using them have moved on and there isn't a market for them. Online access codes also cost a ton and, at least from my experience, they aren't really used that much at all.

    Expensive books are the least of my problems right now. While they are expensive (especially since I'm supposed to be taking two science classes and a math class), I have almost no classes I need to take, and as a transfer student, I'm having an insanely hard time getting into some of them (just because transfer students can only register for classes months after the normal students can)
