6 Bad Decisions You’ll Make When Your Student Loan Comes In
One of the best feelings you’ll ever encounter whilst at University is that moment when you check your bank account to find a load of free(ish) money. But do you save it all for books, rent and food? Of course not.
1. Impulsively buying everything just because you can.
Because who doesn’t want something they’re probably never going to use again?
2. Buying takeaways every night for a month.
Because cooking means effort and pizza tastes so good.
3. “I’ll get this round.”
Thinking you’re Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) in the Wolf Of Wall Street on a night out and before you know you’re dancing on tables and buying drinks for everyone. Oops.
4. Actually buying your own Netflix.
Signing up to a months free Netflix trial (again) and not having the will power or emotional stability to cancel it. Then you’re half way through Orange Is The New Black and the question lurking in the back of your mind is what’s going to happen to Piper?!
5. Joining a gym. A Bad decision all round.
Student loan day is upon you and you feel optimistic about the future so you join a gym, before you know it that gym account becomes a monthly burden and you can count how many times you’ve been on one hand.
6. Paying for everything by card.
Clothes, food, drinks; what easier way to pay then by card? This soon becomes a habit and you whip your card out for even the tiniest of payments and you spiral out of control. Then that moment of dread arrives when you finally check your bank account…
And now to perfect the skill of making £50 last 3 months.
