Go to the café, hit the bars and rock the parties! Is that not the dream of most of us? But what’s the main problem? Money? Yea most people include shortage of funds as a major reason to sit at home and watch something boring over the television than hit the most rocking place in town. You do not necessarily need to be at the most expensive place in the surroundings but yea some quick beers with a couple of friends is enough to get you going through the week of extreme work and tiredness. Specially, if you are a college student or someone doing their majors, money is the most essential factor in deciding what you will be doing through the week as you are always shorts of funds and on a constant cutting on expenses routine. But what can you really do? You are doing your majors,you have loads of friends to hang out with and probably a girlfriend too, who is pestering you every now and then to spend time with her.
