And by friends I mean my lover. And by benefits I mean his new iPad.
(Or I could say by friends I mean my brother. And by benefits I mean his family discount on all things Apple.)
There are very few benefits of being married to a perpetual student. (Sorry babe. I'm very supportive of your career goals. I'm just sayin' it's a tough road.) But a new iPad is one of those benefits.
Spencer got a scholarship this year (yes, he's that awesome). He also works for the university which pays full tuition. But the scholarship had to go directly to something that would benefit his education...meaning not for living expenses (though I say a full stomach and a roof over your head benefit your education). So he used the scholarship to pay for student fees and for books. That left him with just enough money for a new iPad using Jeff's discount. Totally justifiable for many of his assignments.
It's even more fun than it looks.
