This Porn Site Wants To Pay Your Tuition.
College guys have been supporting the porn industry for years, and now one such website wants to give them something back. Popular porn site (or so I've heard) PornHub is offering a $20,000 PornHub Cares scholarship for college students displaying leadership and community involvement. Eligible students must be 18 or older, have a 3.2 GPA or higher, and be enrolled in the Fall 2015 semester. Apparently, all applicants must send in a two- to five-minute video and an essay answering the question, "How do you strive to make others happy?" If you're thinking of making THAT kind of two- to five-minute video, then think again. According to Pornhub Vice President Corey Price: "You don't have to film a porn to be a winner. In fact, anyone who submits a sex video will not be seriously considered. If you're against pornography and an anti-pornography crusader, this is probably not the scholarship for you." For some pretty obvious reasons, there's been some backlash, particularly from national women's groups who feel the scholarship has its heart in the wrong place. A statement released Dawn Hawkins of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation comments that the scholarship is: "...an amazing and deceptive marketing tactic that aims to exploit financially struggling female students. It's really unfortunate we're forcing our kids to sell their bodies to get an education." How do you guys feel about the PornHub Cares scholarship? Would you apply for aid from such a controversial website? Or is tuition money simply tuition money at the end of the day? Personally, I don't know if I'd be comfortable seeking out a scholarship from a porn site, but I wouldn't judge anyone who did. Money is money, after all. And, realistically, it's nice to see a stigmatized billion dollar industry work to turn a new leaf.
"Don't Worry About Money While Traveling" Is Terrible Advice
Travelers and stuck at home Wanderlusters alike have all heard this phrase, "Don't worry about the money, its about the experience." Well, I am here to tell you that that advice is kind of bullshit. Don't get me wrong, traveling is worth dropping the money, and trust me you will drop money. But taking the spending cost out of the equation will not only leave you completely broke with no hopes for a future trip, but it will also ensure that you will not get the full experience of your travels! Traveling costs money. You have to pay for flights, hostels, food, transportation, tours, city passes, clubs, drinks and every other activity you feel the need to buy or experience aka hang gliding in the swiss alps. And while this is all 100% doable, (people do it all the time), smart travelers are aware of the minimum amount they need to spend, and then factor in more money on top of that for the issues that are bound to arise during the trip. This way they know exactly how much to save and ways to budget money before getting on that flight. Having a set amount of money that you plan on spending means you can figure out just how long your trip can be without having to struggle to pay for simple things like getting on a train or buying a round with your new friends that you met at the hostel. Because trust me you don't want to spend your whole trip worrying if you can spare the 4 euro to buy a drink for your roommate. Heres what will happen if you take this terrible advice: You will run out of money. I have heard of some peoples trips being cut short, or they had to move to crappy but cheaper hostels, or they couldn't even do stuff like the Heineken Experience because they couldn't pay to get in! Yes there are free walking tours and you can explore yourself for free, but seeing only the outside and not paying the money to explore further is a half hearted attempt at traveling. Actually, this means you are wasting all this money to experience only the first layer of the countries experience. The best thing you can do is be honest with the amount you believe you are going to spend and try to stick to it. Pay attention to the money, because you need to it fully experience traveling. But then again, don't let the money control your trip because you will figure out some creative ways to save what you have! So yes, you will be spending a decent chunk of change....but its worth it as long as you're smart about it

5 Ways To Control Your Spending
Hello, my name is Tess, and I am a shopaholic. ...This is the part where you say, "Hi Tess." Anyway, I've learned, over the past few months, that controlling your spending can be extremely simple. I've saved a few thousand dollars, and I will tell you how! 1. Budget by week. What I've been doing is taking out around 250 to 350 dollars per week. This way I have a finite amount of money to spend. Keeping track of your expenses by week will enable you to keep a tight hold on your 2. Use Cash Using cash will enable you to see the money leaving your hand. This will encourage you to spend less. It's just a fact of life. If I can see the money going...I won't want to spend it. 3. Leave your Debit card at home. This way you're not tempted to take out more money, or overpay for things. If you have unlimited funds on you at all times, you're not going to want to save, at least, that's what I always thought. Be hard on yourself, and hold yourself accountable for each penny. 4. Make lists NEVER go to the grocery store without a list, this will help you stick to your guns and not end up buying unnecessary stuff. It's liberating to make sure that you can help yourself accountable. It's all about responsibility here! 5. Tell yourself every day what saving can do, buy or set up for you. You are the master of your financial destiny, if you want to be able to say that you're responsible, you've got to take ownership of your money. I guess, me starting to save was a decision of necessity. When you start your life, all of the financial crippling starts to become real. Student loans, rent, car payments and more. You will save when you have to. Better to start now! So there you go! Get out there and make your fortune :)
