I learned the hard way

Something no one tells you when you're young or just in general is how incredibly expensive hotel stays are.  As I've mentioned before, I'm going to NYC this summer with my sister, but one thing we just can't find is a hotel. All of the hotels are so expensive. The worst part about it is that they're so far away from the tourism sites that it would put me in debt if I chose to ride a cab everywhere. As a college student (no matter if I'm taking the semester off) it's real expensive for me, mostly since I'm paying for everything myself. I've looked into some bed and breakfasts but they all share a bathroom. I mean, I'm okay with that once in a while, but... Not all the time. Ugh. I guess I have to keep searching. I have to find someplace real quick too. The closer the date gets, the more they charge! 

Another thing they don't tell you (or I simply just either didn't listen or tuned them out) are how much they take out of your taxes. It's kinda ridiculous. I just hope I don't have to pay this year, like last year. Anyways, I still have to check out places to stay and make sure they aren't too far away from all of the tourism sites. Wish me luck!
