I only plan to have one large yearly vacation that I will cover out of my own pocket. The vacation will be within my means and more about traveling than staying in fancy hotels. The fancier vacations I do with my family are covered by my parents, so my plans for vacation are more simplistic. My budgeting for my recreation activities are light as well. I am a runner, so the most expensive aspect is paying for quality running shoes every few months.
For example, in an article from Huffingtonpost.com, it said parents in the US, spend about six hundred seventy one dollars on average to cover uniforms, coaching, and registration fees (“High Cost of Youth Sports” 2). That shows that they are harmful, because parents are spending a lot of money just for their kid to play one sport. They could be saving their money for their children’s college or something else that will benefit their future. Another example is in the same article, it said, “More than 2 in 10 (21%) spend $1,000 or more every year for sports per child”(“High Cost of Youth Sports” 1).That shows that the cost of competitive sports is harmful because parents are spending a lot of money per year. So, if the kid keeps playing the sport every year until college, that can end up being a lot more money than just for them playing it once.

We would save up all the money we could get our hands on and on very special occasion we would head down to Walgreens and if we were lucky we could each afford about three packs each. I cannot remember how many summers we spent on those cards but there is one event that sticks out to me more than the rest. We had made our regular trip to the Walgreens and upon arriving at the counter I realized that I would not be able to get the cards that I wanted that day.
College sports collect millions of dollars each year:Approximately around 40 million dollars a year, states and universities make. You would think that the amount of money that is made would get split between the franchises ,students and schools but unfortunately the students that play receive none of it. Theres many discussions on if college athletes should or should not get paid and because they already receive scholarships then they shouldn 't get paid. Scholarships in itself is “around 25,000-30,000 per year for example a student who 's division 1 thats over 100,000 for 4 years of college(Hartnett 1)”. So if college athletes would start getting paid then they shouldn 't get any scholarships and they would just have to pay for it with the money they are receiving.
In “The Necklace” Madame Loisel and her husband work very hard to pay everyone they borrowed money from back, after doing so she runs into her friend and says, ‘“I brought you back another exactly like it.

In my younger and more tender years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since. He ingrained in me the saying, “What you do not ask for you do not get.” He has repeated this statement repeatedly but we’ve always been unusually distant in the sense that he and I understood that I would have to be captain of the ship that is my life. As a young boy I was naturally reserved and did not like taking risks. Throughout my childhood I tried to integrate my Dad’s aphorism into my life.
