Leighton assists her in the application for a loan. The loan is approved however she isn’t able to take it as she needs her parents to co-sign.
The sole solution Kimberly could find to solve her financial issues is to take on another job as a transcriber for the script of an Australian reality television show.
While at the same time, Whitney worries she hasn’t filled her schedule with enough activities when she finds out what the soccer players are up to during their off-season.

The Episode Review
The Sex Lives of College Girls returns for a second season, as are many of the actions from season one.
In the majority of cases, the comedy-drama seems to be moving its characters in a new direction. I’m especially excited about Bela’s storyline, which will draw on two themes from the first season which were the theme of gender discrimination and Bela’s intense relationship with Eric.
If there’s a storyline that I’m concerned about, it’s Leighton’s. For a person who is committed to not making her sexuality her sole identity, I’m hoping she doesn’t get stuck by writers who create her arcs solely about sexuality. However, I’m also excited. Her sexuality has been made all the way through this season. I’m hoping, therefore, for a fresh season where she will be able to explore the person she is, inside and outside of her sexuality.
