One of the reasons I've been ambivalent about going to college is because of the cost.
I've been hearing all of the stories of students going into debt paying for college. Let me tell you just from the little amount of debt I have right now, it is not a position I want to live in for the rest of my life.
I mean being honest, I'm most likely not going to study one of the most beneficial areas. Since I was like 14, one of my main things has been going for a degree in English. I mean come on not very beneficial right?
But see my passions lie in the Humanities. I don't want to study something I'll be miserable in, you know?
So I've been looking into financial options and I didn't realize there were so many grants!
Of course I know about Pell Grant. That was one of the first ones I realized I qualified for. But there are so many you guys! I'm feeling really good about funding my way.
And then there's work study. I don't mind working at all and if keep me from having a lot of debt, I have no problem with that at all.
I look at loans as a last result. I just don't want to have that on my record. I usually have no problem paying back small ones, but college can be expensive you know? And there's no guarantee that I'll land a position.
So anyway I guess you could say I have a new home. Haha SW joke. But I really want to do this. I know I can do this.
