Perfect example, this event was intended for the current year.
That's what planning is for. When you save up for something, you don't spend the money that you were saving for that something unless, say, you broke your leg and need money for a cast. That's not something you can help, but that's why I'm giving you a year to save up, so even if there is an emergency, you still have plenty of time to fill your piggy banks again.
On the other hand, spending that saved money on something else, say, a PS3 or something, isn't saving. You don't NEED to expend your money on that, you just want a fucking PS3. While that's fine and all, coming back here and posting "OH I CAN'T GO CUZ I DUN HAVE MONEY" is bullshit. If you think you're incapable of saving any sort of money for this sort of trip, then get the hell out of this thread right now. If you're knee deep in bills and don't see yourself going on a trip in the next year, or the next several years, too bad, I can't help you, and you probably shouldn't be thinking of spending a ton of money on a trip anyway.
This thread is for people who DO want to go, ARE saving money, and have every intention of showing up come rain or shine. All zero of you.>_>
