I hate it when a facebook argument starts on almost every status I make. I say "Oh what a lovely day today." and then someone makes a stupid comment on some controversial topic that attracts 3/4 of my friends list, including my parents. I'm like "this is embarassing."
On the subject of textbooks, this semester I'm going to aim for ebooks rather than physical textbooks. I'm going to use my tablet as an ereader. E-Books are cheaper and easier that way imo.
