How These 10 College Students Would Spend $10,000

I asked, they answered

How These 10 College Students Would Spend $10,000

This week I decided to ask college students how they would spend $10,000 without any sort of catch or surprise. Here are the answers they gave me.

1. Erica

Erica is a student at Western Carolina here in North Carolina. When I asked Erica this question she answered almost immediately, she had no hesitation.

She simply said, "pay off my car, money for my nephew, some college, and rent."

2. Ben

On the other side of the mountains we have Ben, a student at Appalachian State (Go 'Neers!).

He decided to give me a simple but extended answer, "I'd probably save it and try to use it on student loans and rent. What I had left over I'd either keep saving for myself or donate to a cause I believe in depending on the circumstance."

3. Taylor

Another student from Western Carolina is Taylor. Similar to Erica, Taylor gave me a short response but knows exactly what she would use it for.

She says, "Save it or give it to charity, or pay for the rest of my college."

4. Charles

Charles attends Western Carolina University, and at first asked me if I was asking him this question because I was going to give him the money... he's funny.

But, his actual response was, "Probably a new car. AR-15 maybe."

5. Carlyn

My friend Carlyn is a recent graduate of Appalachian State University, so I reached out and decided to ask what she would do with 10,000 dollars.

Her response: "I would donate 2500 to St. Jude's. And then probably use the rest for debt."

6. Tyler

Tyler just finished his undergrad studies at Radford University, his response to this question was a lot like I expected from students.

"I would pay off my student debt."

7. Xana

One of my closest friends at Appalachian State University took a different approach when asked this question about butt loads of money.

However, she did state that it was easy for her to figure out, "Easy, pay my bills, pay off my car, and keep the rest for if my parents need it. That way what I'm working can go to groceries and like paying my loan off.”

8. Ryan

He's another student at Appalachian State.

Ryan's answer was, "If I was dating someone I would travel the world with them; if not I would try to find a way to give back."

9. Joe

Joe is one of my best friends here at Appalachian State. He knew exactly what to do with some of the money but had to think about what to do with the rest of it.

At first saying, " $8000 on tuition," then when I asked about the rest he responded with, "I’d spend it on a trip."

10. Dylan

When I asked Dylan, another Appalachian State student, this question he broke down the costs and decided how much he would put into each thing.

He said, "Probably spend 1.5k on my computer, 2k towards apartment rent, and invest the rest."

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
