IMHO you are NOT a "typical" college student.... hell I work 45-50 hours a week and wish I could have the 1200 sq ft. 2 bed/bath apartment you "slummed" in ... due to unfortunate ....oops baby on the way I had to put my career on hold... damn if it wasn't hard knowing you are under paid for what you do but having to put food and shelter on the table for a new life seems in itself a handicap but I look at it as a reward. Had I been selfish and tried to better myself I would be labeled as a "bad parent" I decided that sacrificing my future for the betterment of my child was the correct way to go. If that meant digging ditches (thanks dad.. I am not a ditch digger) so be it I did it... did I get paid 25K? HELL NO! I got paid less than 20K and I had to work my ass off for every dollar all the while worrying whether I had enough cash to grab more diapers, have enough for unexpected emergencies... (which in all the Doctor Phil episodes where I am a dead-beat parent because I didn't have enough money to handle such)
I did the best I could... could I have made more money by sacrificing my family life... yes without a doubt.... but was that the "politically-correct" thing to do ... I still have reservations... I am nearing my seventh decade of life on this planet and wish I would have pressed the EASY button. Am I complaining Yes... but complaining that I didn't have the breaks someone else had... is sorry for bringing up Aesop but is just Sour grapes... I made my bed and I slept in it... and for all the other delusional people out there... my daughter will graduate HS next month the rewards I have received more than make up for the sacrifices I made.
Now more to on topic... Rescind laws preventing the discharging of student loans let a person decide not the law!
