STUDENT LOANS ARE KICKING MY BUTT

Don’t you just love life after college its amazing and probably the best thing ever, I’m so happy to be done with college and start paying student loans 6months afterwards with such a lovely dead end job. I remember July 24, 2008 it was just like yesterday, I was filled with so many emotions I was happy then minutes later I was sad I realized how many great things I was going to miss and how many people I many never talk to anymore buy at the same time I was happy to get into the real world or what I thought was the real world at that point. July 24, 2008 was the day I graduated high school and also the day almost everything changed for me, because at that moment I made the decision that I was going to leave Nigeria and come to the U.S. to attend college and GOD knows words can’t describe how scary that was for me but months later I did it. I moved to NYC to study a degree that at that time I had no clue what it was going to be. To cut the long story I ended up studying creative writing and media management, now I don’t regret studying this but at the same time I wish I had studied something that could have brought me more job opportunities, but now i’m stuck working a dead end retail job and paying student loans. I’m beginning to think who put this idea of going to college in my head, personally speaking  i feel like college is a waste of time and system created to control the youth and also entrap us with some kind of slave mentality because some people end up paying students for about 10yrs or more after college. Now I ask this question is College a sham?, Is worth your while? My answers are it is a sham and it’s not your worth your while but i’m sure many will beg to differ and I totally understand why they will, but if you look at majority of the most successful in this current generation how many of them have a College Degree or how many of them have an associates degree to say the least. Now, I’m not saying we shouldn’t go to college but I just personally feel like as long as you know what you want to do you should go after : that is with or without a college degree.
