I hope you all had a fantastic week; welcome back to more of me talking.
As we’ve come to the end of the semester, this is my last and final goodbye to you all.
This blog was so much fun to write and it was truly a joy to share my wisdom each and every week. I know I taught you guys just so much because I’m so smart, but I actually DID learn some things myself.
It’s been a journey. As an RA, I already know a lot about this school, but most of what I know has to do with resources to help my residents. Through this experience, I discovered some hidden gems like The Rutgers Club and the Gardens.
I also found out so many amazing things related to student discounts on food and different deals…
AKA UNiDays and the fact that Starbucks offers free refills!!!!!!!!!
Honestly, I may have saved you guys, but I really saved myself too. FREE. REFILLS. I’m still shook.
When we first figured out our blog ideas all the way back three months ago, I remember being so confused and scared and concerned and indecisive and also mainly confused.
forced helped me to decide on this topic of “ballin’ on a budget” that I came up with and told me that this could turn into a really successful blog as long as I was able to focus my ideas into interesting content. My first real post was a bit of a mess and really did not work as helpful ballin’ tips. I felt like I really let myself down because, yeah it was fun to read, but it didn’t actually have anything to do with anything.
I think ever since that first post about my birthday, my blog has stayed true to form and really developed into some read-worthy content.
Plus, I’m like so funny.
Anyway, I’m proud of how much work I put into this thing and really flattered by how much everyone seemed to like it.
I did a lot of research for every post and had to venture outside of my room sometimes which was a lot of effort.
I’m going to be sad that I’m not going to be reading everyone else’s post every week anymore, but I am kind of happy that I can delete the 9,000 gifs I downloaded onto my laptop every week. It’s the end of our blog era. It’s the end of Ballin’ on a Budget. I think we all killed it.
I’m going to take a lot of what I learned about saving and try to continue to implement it into my life moving forward. I won’t have the blog anymore, but I can use these little tricks to save money while still enjoying myself. It’s amazing to see it all come full circle, because I’m pretty sure I said something like that in my “Mission Statement.”
I hope you guys have a great rest of the semester and do great on your finals!
xoxo sad, nostalgic, a little less broke b*tch
