10/26/10 - Halloween costumes: What's going to be popular this year?
Halloween costumes for 2010 will be across the board from Lady Gaga and Kanye West, to the more traditional ideas such as vampires and bloody victims of horrid deaths. Hollywood has given us quite a few routes to go with this year, from hit movies and TV shows like Avatar, True Blood and Glee.
Painting yourself blue and adding a tail can be the perfect way to be a creature from Pandora (from Avatar) or wearing a letterman’s jacket (or cheer-leading uniform), and singing all night to the Glee hits can be an easy and practical way to go this year. And we can’t forget about the TV shows we love to mock, such as Jersey Shore and Jackass. Fake tans and spray on abs can be a funny way your group of friends can dress up as the cast of Jersey Shore.
Another popular trend this year is “blow up ” costumes. According to gossipjackal.com, “There are also ‘blow up’ costumes that allow the user to stand in the costume and it will literally blow up around them. These costumes include sumo wrestlers and even a genie in a bottle. ”
There are also some new films coming out, like Scream 4, making the “ghost-face killer ” costume a comeback, or the final Harry Potter films, where you can paint on a lightning bolt scar and wear a pair of cheap glasses as Harry Potter himself.
Not only can you go the Hollywood route, but you can also take some time and be creative this year. Dress up all in white and let everyone know you’re a “piece of paper; ” but get ready to be drawn on all night (including your face which is clearly not part of your costume). Or attach tissues all over yourself and carry a spray bottle letting everyone know you’re a “sneeze. ” You can always go as a sexy witch but that’s not too creative. Whatever you are, have fun with it and go all out. Halloween only comes around once a year!
10/19/10 - 18 Tips for Getting Through College Debt Free
by Joeplemon on September 8, 2010 in Career,Debt,Guest Post
Following these tips will help:
When in high school:
- Work hard at securing good grades so you’re accepted to college on a scholarship.
- Look around for scholarship options and work on qualifying for them.
- Get a job and save money towards your tuition fees.
- Talk to your parents, grandparents and other relatives and ask them to put aside money towards your education instead of buying presents on your birthday and other occasions.
- Take college level or advanced placement classes – you would have to give up your free time and work harder, but it’s worth it if you’re able to afford college tuition without having to take out a loan.
- CLEP (College Level Examination Program) tests help you skip general requirement courses in college – they’re cost effective and they help you finish college faster.
When in college:
- Choose to study at a community college for the general part of your education. You could transfer to another school to complete the rest of your degree, thus making the whole exercise cheaper.
- Choose a college near home so you can live at home and save tons of money.
- If you are moving away, find campus accommodation early enough so you don’t have to shell out extra to find digs outside – when you live off campus, you have to spend more on commuting to and fro as well.
- Cram more courses into a year so you can graduate early – every extra year you stay in college adds to your expenses.
- Work at a part-time job, on or off campus.
- Make a budget and live on it. This habit will not only help you during your college years but will serve you for the rest of your life.
- Don’t use your credit card for frivolous expenses.
- Pay off your credit card and other bills in full every month. Never make only the minimum payments.
- Don’t spend more money than you have – it’s simple financial sense but most students never follow it.
- Avoid partying if you cannot afford it – just because your friends are doing it doesn’t mean you have to. Incurring debt just to enjoy a few hours drinking and whiling away your time does not make sense.
- Booze and cigarettes are not just bad for your health; they deplete your finances as well. Leave them alone.
- When you go out with friends, go Dutch – pay for your share. You might want to pay for your friends as well, but it’s not worth going deeper in debt for.
If you feel you must absolutely take out a loan, keep the sum to the minimum amount possible at the minimum interest, and pay it off at the earliest before the interest starts to accrue. Living frugally in college is difficult, especially when everyone around you seems to be living it up, but staying within your means is the only way to graduate debt free. You can do it.
9/10/10 - Congratulations to our Netbook Winners!
