it took me almost 10yrs to pay off the student loans if you include extensions. i also worked while in undergrad. and my parents were divorced thanks for asking. but i did have shoes when i was in elementary school, unlike our Supreme Court Justice Thomas has noted about his own life.

Sergio opens his mail box and is surprised by the recent tax hike bill in the mail.

Sergio: “42% hike?!? WTF! And I have to pay this in 30 days?”

Tiffany: “Hey, if you don’t like it, then move out of Hobotown!”

Sergio: “You know Tiffany, this means we can’t go out for dinner, or the bar, and maybe even cancel the trip to your mom’s place in Clearwater, FL. I have to figure out how to raise this money this quickly.”

Tiffany: “You don’t love me! You still love Kelly. She got everything, and you treat me like last seasons fashion at Marshalls!”

Sergio: “Tiffany, please don’t cry.”

Tiffany: “Whaaaaaa. Uhhhh. Whaaaaa. Do something to fix it Sergio!”

Sergio: “What do you want me to do?”

Tiffany: “I don’t know, get another job or something.”

Sergio: “I can barely hold on to the full time job I already have. And I don’t want to be a part time receptionist at the UU.”

Tiffany: “I don’t care what you have to do. Just get your ass on the street and figure it out! Whaaaa.”

and i guess everyone has 200K to drop on school when they’re young. boy, you weren’t lucky or privileged at all![/quote]
School loans work for people who don’t have it in cash. Other things that helped me pay for school include working part time to full time from 2nd semester freshman year through law school graduation. Yea, I worked 35 or more hours per week while in school full time. One semester I averaged over 50 hours per week. So forgive me if I don’t share your sympathy for those who don’t get an education b/c of “monetary issues.”

Strand Tramp worked so hard, because we all know staying in school is sooooo much harder than trying to survive on the streets 24 hours a day with mental illness and disease all around you…

i’m sure stand tramp you also overcame poverty and disabilities too, and a one-parent household…

boy, you sure worked hard to get where you are, but you were given handouts early on too, aparently….

and i guess everyone has 200K to drop on school when they’re young. boy, you weren’t lucky or privileged at all!

i’m sure you could still work those 50 hours weeks (really, most of us only work 45!!) if you were in a wheelchair or blind. clearly you had it rough.

I wouldn’t mind being homeless as a part time gig to help pay the bills.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
