Well....from the other side of the equation, I love when school starts. There's a truth behind that old Staple commercial where the family is going down the aisles, children miserable, father dancing to "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year".

LOL, I loved that one. My mother was a schoolteacher for close to 40 years so in my house, we got a third POV as well.

Can I ask what (ahem) grade you're in now?

We could borrow a similar graphic calculator from our school for around $10 or $20 until we graduated from school.
I never needed it anymore after school, because graphic calculators are forbitten for the exams I write in my study (so that you can't program the formulas into the calculator). So borrowing instead of buying was the best choice.
