In fact, it is very much the opposite.
I just took out a Stafford loan for more money than I’ve ever owned in my entire life.
And I’m getting a heart attack just looking at how many books I have to buy for the semester – for one semester, people; I’m not even talking about the entire year – and I’m having a small heart attack.
I mean, I knew college was expensive, but I think this list and that loan both picked up and hit my head with sledgehammers, just so I would really know college is expensive.
I think I’m going to go eat some deviled eggs and
practice some healthy denial pay for my books tomorrow so I can say I didn’t incur great debt and spend a lot of money on the same day.
