Have you ever had a perfectly planned day, and then all of sudden everything gets cancelled leaving you with a whole day to yourself? Well, that was me this past Saturday. Here's a little background story. I was set to work in downtown Toronto for the Pan-American games that are currently going on, but before that could happen, I had to pick up my ID pass in order (which was all the way in Northern Toronto). How my day was originally planned was like this:

7:30 8:00 am
 Wake Up

8:30 am
 Get to bus stop and commute to Northern Toronto (ETA: 1h20mins)

10:00 am
Pick Up ID pass

11:00 am
Pan Am Orientation

1:00 pm

3:00 pm 
Work Time

11:00 pm 
Go Home

This plan was perfect...until I got to the office to pick up my pass and was told: "Your pass is not ready." Now, my plan looked like this:
10 am - ?

Tips, tricks and advice on finances for university and college students
One thing that has caused me, and probably many other students, a lot of stress is  personal finance.

 When September comes rolling around, I start the school year with a very happy bank account. For those who have dealt with financial aids before, you could probably understand what it's like to wake up one morning and have a large sum of money sitting in your bank account. For me, the first thing I think of is how great a new pair of shoes would look in my wardrobe. Before you know it, it's time for finals and all you have left in your account is just enough to buy that Grande Skinny Vanilla Latte from Starbucks. Eventually, it's time to start searching through your pockets for spare change, or if you're lucky you have parents who will #bless your account with just enough money to survive the month. Congratulations, you've finally hit rock bottom.
