Paying your own way through university used to be possible.
Today it is easily not possible.
In order to receive a degree a person has to go into a lot of debt. Back then I managed to scrimp plus save plus work a few sideline tasks to spend money for my tuition. It was not an easy life, although I managed to get my bachelor’s degree without incurring any student loan debt! Part of the reason I was able to do this was by doing cannabis deliveries for the local dispensary, then cars were not allowed on campus, so the fastest way to deliver cannabis to the students was on bicycle. I rode my bike everywhere already, so I was the perfect guy to wheel bags of cannabis to the dormitories plus lecture halls. I made weed deliveries everywhere, often riding for hours on end. I favorite taking cannabis to the adult housing section, a place for faculty plus staff members to live in townhousehold apartments. This was a longer ride, however the older people regularly tipped way better than the university students… On the other hand, periodically the students would offer me a gratuity of the cannabis I had just delivered to them. I regularly accept any tip offers to me, currency or cannabis, although I care about currency. Not only did the cannabis delivery task spend money well, it also kept me in amazing physical condition. BecauseI worked so much at night for the cannabis shop, I had no social life, plus was able to put all my wages plus tips towards my schooling.
