Do you feel stuck?

Cheyenne Postell

I graduated with two degrees and got a full-time job right out of college, but I can barely pay my bills because my student loan payments are outrageous.

No matter how hard I work, I’ll never be able to get out from under student loan debt. I sure have tried.

    Preach, girl. I get paid twice a month, and the first check goes all to loans. That’s half my take home pay. My rent (sharing a studio and bed with someone, btw) is 60% of my second check. It’s awful out there.

    Nothing different from the housing collapse loans extended that can never be repaid.Greed rules the financial world at the demise of others Life dreams never fulfilled based on false promises of what an education can provide. Extremely unrealistic outcomes based on real life experiance not academic ponderings..Hang in there 10,000 boomers retire a day thankfully as they have done little other than for themselves
