I have just graduated high school and I plan on attending college next year. So here are my two options I have: go on an expensive vacation with the scarce amount of cash I have saved up, or WORK and save up money for college. Now the logical answer would be to save up money for college, but some people may think different.
Even if my family was going on a vacation for a week and told me they would cover all of my expenses, I would still have to say no. Simply because when you are 18 years old and trying to save money for college, every hour you work will matter. I don’t want to be starving come mid-December because I didn’t save up anything and I wasted all my money on dumb things.
Anyways, there are plenty of fun things you can do instead of going on a vacation. Like going swimming, going on a bike ride, or even going down to the YMCA to play some sports with your friends. So there is the perspective of an 18 year old, and why we usually can’t take vacations in the summer.
