This isn’t a particularly fun or entertaining topic today…. but I’m desperate and feeling hopeless and there’s literally no one out there that I can call and say “HELP ME!!!?!?!?!” regarding the matter.
So here’s the deal — I was an idiot and I will own up to that and freely admit it – I decided to go to a college that was outside my price range and therefore depended on loans to pay for it.
$85,000 later I’m still not graduated because I’m out of financial aid, and the big kick in the pants about that is I only have 6 classes to take before I get my two degrees (AA in Screenwriting, BFA in Film Editing)
Well when I was young and dumb none of this mattered to me – the great and mighty “Someday” wasn’t affecting me then…but it is affecting me now. So here I am now, I’m 28 years old, I still haven’t finished college and I can’t finish unless I come up with the money on my own – I have no savings to speak of what-so-ever.
This isn’t a plea for pity, it’s a plea for ideas! I have thought about it until I’m sick, I can’t afford school on my own so finishing doesn’t seem to be an option, I don’t have any extra money to make the payments they want me to make on my student loans, my credit is beyond shot, and when I think of the big picture, of paying of that much money over my lifetimes it’s heart breaking. I’ll never have extra money to buy a home with, or anything like that.
So there you have it….does anyone out there in cyber land know of any ways I can either find some crazy way to make or get money to pay off my student loans, or save more of my own money (trust me I’m a crazy penny pincher as it is – I go as far as to make my own laundry detergent and fabric softener as of late, and it works well!!) I just hear of all these people walking tight ropes around town instead of driving to raise money for themselves, or tap dancing through ice rinks… I dunno…
There’s got to be a way that Laura can fix this pickle she’s in. She’s in such a pickle she’s reverted to the 3rd person. That’s the first sign of insanity…if Laura doesn’t fix this pickle soon the insanity will just get worse!
