With the start of every semester comes the ordering of textbooks. So, like I’ve been doing for the past 2.5 years in college, I did the economical thing and went on chegg.com to rent my $200 dollars worth of learning materials. Inside the box, I also found a little gift from Hulu Plus. A free month’s worth of Hulu-Plus. I didn’t need it though, so I gave it to my friend.
I didn’t need it because I decided to read my textbooks instead of watch every episode of Modern Family Hulu-Plus has to offer. Yeah, right. I didn’t need it because they did the same thing last semester. And when I gave them my credit card information to activate it and vowed to cancel it when the month was up, I didn’t. I couldn’t go back to the limited, regular Hulu once I had experienced this. Not to mention every time I go on the site the season covers of all my most-watched shows are right there at the top of the home-screen. So I now pay for Hulu-plus. And the irony is how it all began- when I ordered my textbooks. The most counter-intuitive combination.
