This post is meant to be for fun only. No elements of seriousness were intended. Don’t get all worked up alright?
Here are five reasons why I think you need to buy a car when you’re studying overseas
1. Submit Assignment
Instead of submitting your assignment well in advance, to factor in the amount of time you need to take public transportation and as such, you can now submit your assignment 10 minutes before the time it is due. This is very true in the case of a friend of mine. Her assignment is due at 4PM and I had to drive her to uni at 3.50PM for her to hand in the assignment 😛
2. A tool to make friends (and be used)
Would you agree that if you own a car, it’s easier to make friends? And sometimes, being used by your friends as well? Hehehe.
3. In case it’s that ‘time’ of the month
For ladies, and men perhaps (I don’t know how this would apply to men), if it’s that ‘time’ of the month again, and you forgot to bring your supplies, you can quickly drive home to ‘recompose’ yourself.
4. Pleasant shitting experience
For folks from the east who are used to using water as means of istinja’ a.k.a basuh berak, then western toilets may be an inconvenience at times. You know the ‘unwashed’ feelings that goes on throughout the day. Euurrgghh. With a car, you can quickly drive home, do your business, and drive back to uni again.
5. Lunch time!
Often in uni, food and drinks are very expensive. It is especially true in my university. So, by owning a car, you can drive home for a quick lunch break (thus saving you heaps of money), and return to uni for your next class.
Have your say as well down in the comments section. Why do you think a uni student needs a car?
