I'm going to be the grumpy old man and say that if you get everything you want while you are in college where is the incentive to do well make yourself a better life?

Speaking as Resident Curmudgeon Emeritus, I think the OP will do just fine in his life after college. He has shown initiative, organizational skills and evidence that he is goal-oriented, all characteristics that will serve him well in the future.

You seriously need to have a reality check if your going to rag on me for having TV... I dont always want to go out every single night just so I can catch the LLWS or my Braves play. It's nice to have a long day and just go home sit on the couch and watch a game or two, who knows mabe some mythbusters?

I mean If I was not wise with my money I would have aways had TV... I waited untill I got a much more reliable job before I even thought about getting a subscription, and even so I still tried to find help through other means thanks to everyone who has replied to my topic!

Thank you so much for everybody's help, im sorry to inform everyone but I ended up having to get Dish Network. Apparently my credit was not good enough for Direct TV... what a bummer..
