A) there is another maybe cheaper site I could also look at - the camera ranges from $400 to $500 the packages I am looking at - but i found a beaut at $420 (camera, lens, cleaning kit, 4gb memory card, camera bag)
B) should I hope for future subbing opportunities based on past performance and get the camera in good faith that I can pay it off in May (or string it along... God help me.)
C) should I wait, save my money because I need/want spending money while I am in London so why spend it on a much drooled over camera, when i can take my mom's point and shoot.
welcome to my life. Oh yes, and do keep in mind, i break down once day because i can't afford the thing, plus not sure if i can also afford my bills... really. it's quite fun.
