So not a lot of people know this about me but I’ve been a student studying part time on and off for the past 5 years. I probably should have been done with my B.com degree by now, but I’m not? By that bit of information people would have probably assumed that I’ve very lazy, wasting time and money.
Well the actual reason is that I’m actually doing very well at varsity but the fees are super expensive, and I had to take it upon myself to make the decision after doing my 1st year at varsity full time, that I would actually have to work and do my studies part time. So the cycle of working in the day and studying at night had begun. But that didn’t solve all my problems simply because as soon as I had enough money to pay my varsity fees, I end up having to buy textbooks priced at exorbitant amounts... So I know how tough it is, and I feel your pain.... I’m currently in my last year and boi oh boi it is tough....
So when I saw that Gumtree committed to you take your studies , I was super excited to let everyone know about it.... Do not let this opportunity pass you by... Wish I had this opportunity when I started out!
