Good for you. When I took one year at BCIT, I didn’t apply for a student loan. I took odd jobs such as pizza driver dude for one of the pizza stores on Commercial, driver for Madame Cleo’s..umm, forget I said that.
Not really anything to do with me - my mom wanted to do something for my father. So, we decided he would love a memorial scholarship.
Hehe, I did the same when I worked. Treeplanting was the best though! I made 150 dollars a day, for about 2.5 months planting. We had 70 days of work, so I actually made money in first year.
Pizza delivery was ok. Much easier, but I only made about 100 bucks a day. Working the entire summer got me about 8500 bucks, so I was bleeding about 1.5k a year for school :(
Made enough to pay for 3 years in 3 years, but after that I was out of money. Took me a long time to save up enough to finish off the degree. Took 3 years of saving to finish up that last year. :(
