My mom used to tell me that taking out student loans was a bad idea…that I should work to pay my way through college. My answer? Summoning the infinite wisdom of my 18 year old self… “Mom, I could work now for $7 an hour…or I could wait until I graduate and make $70k per year. Mom, working to pay for school just doesn’t make sense.”
This is me 3 colleges and $100k in debt later, climbing my way out. Mama knows best.
