I feel rich

Every semester the bookstore has a “Textbook Loyalty Party.” I’ve gone in the past, but nothing very exciting has ever happened.

Matt and I went to the party today, hoping to be selected for a shopping competition, where each participant would be given $100 to spend at the bookstore. We were really bummed when neither of us were selected to participate.

We each made sure to put a ticket in the pot for drawings throughout the day. We were bummed when we weren’t drawn for the iPod Touch or for the first round of cash. They were having a drawing for textbook cash, if your ticket was drawn they would reimburse you for all the money you spent on textbooks at the bookstore. I, of course, badly wanted to win because of all the books I bought at the bookstore this semester.

We stood there staring at our tickets, waiting to hear our numbers called. Number after number was called but not ours. During a little break, I asked Matt if I could have his ticket if  it was called (he only bought one book, compared to my 32). He handed me his ticket: 549525. The next number called: 549525. I screamed I was so happy!

I walked away with $340: 8 $20s and 18 $10s. What a day.

It's all real!
