The Problem with Marrying Rich: Out of the Way, Ex - Chapter 1274
“He Xiyan, hurry up! It’s time to attend classes!”
In her sleep, He Xiyan was woken up by her classmate Yang Jing.
She rubbed her eyes. Since she hadn’t had a good rest for two consecutive nights, she was so tired that she couldn’t see Yang Jing’s face clearly.
“What time is it now?” She asked. She remembered that she had set the alarm. But she didn’t hear it.
Yang Jing clapped He Xiyan on the shoulder, trying to wake her up. “It’s 7:40. It’s Professor Chen’s class. If you miss it, you know the consequences.”
As soon as He Xiyan heard this, she hurriedly crawled out of the bed.
She then quickly put on the clothes and came down from the upper berth.
There were four berths in their dormitory. They all slept on the upper bunk, and under the bed was a desk.
It was too late to tie her hair or eat breakfast. He Xiyan simply washed her face. Then she came out of the bedroom with a book and a picture book.
The teaching building of the design institute was a little far away, but fortunately, she had a bike, so that she could cycle to class when she was about to be late.
She was a sophomore majoring in graphic design in the School of Art and Design of Z University. A year ago, she got admitted into this university with excellent grades in academic subjects and art. This university was also her ideal university.
Since she was kind of late, she could only sit in the last row with her classmate and roommate Yang Jing.
“What’s the matter with you? You look so haggard.” Yang Jing asked He Xiyan in a whisper.
She found that He Xiyan had been back very late these days, who seemed to come back at more than 10 o’clock last night.
He Xiyan whispered in Yang Jing’s ear. “I found a part-time job outside. I go to a training class to teach children to draw.”
Yang Jing was stunned, looking at He Xiyan with a frown.
“Why are you looking for a part-time job? We have quite full courses this semester. Your study will be affected by this.”
He Xiyan smiled bitterly.
“It’s OK. I can get used to it.”
He Xiyan didn’t say that it was because she didn’t have money. The School of Art and Design she was in required a more expensive tuition than other majors in other departments. Her last year’s tuition relied on a student loan. This year, the tuition was partly on a student loan loaned and partly borrowed. As for the living expenses, she needed to earn it by herself, otherwise she would not even afford to have meals.
There was only more than 500 yuan in her card now.
“You’re looking for trouble.” Yang Jing sighed silently.
He Xiyan cherished every chance of learning. In class, she listened quite carefully and her notebook was full of notes.
In the morning, he had four classes in succession. After class, He Xiyan, like other students, went to the cafeteria for lunch.
Her tableware was the kind of meal box at about ten yuan she bought. The box was not big, because she ate less as well.
He Xiyan went into the second cafeteria. There were so many cafeteria in the university that she couldn’t remember the number. Many students went to have lunch at small restaurants nearby rather than eat in the cafeteria. However, she hadn’t been there once, because it was expensive for her. Having potted rice would cost more than 20 yuan while eating in the cafeteria would only cost five to six yuan.
He Xiyan had some rice at about 0.7 yuan first and then came to the common vegetable area and had stir fried pork with bean curd, which cost 4.7 yuan. There was no more to be saved.
After having the rice and dish, she didn’t eat in the cafeteria, but brought the food to her dormitory. Most of the classmates ate in the dormitories, because it was too bustling and hustling in the cafeteria.
