Loans suck. Don't they?
I keep getting the question - "when are you going back to school?"
I have a Bachelor's degree right now in Psychology. Am I using my degree? No. Am I upset about that? Yes. Especially because of all of the loans I have!
I had the bright idea to go to a private university for my college education...not sure why. I wish someone would have warned me about all of these loans...I really would have. At least if I went to a public university and wasn't drowning in loans - I wouldn't feel so bad for not using my degree.
I have tried to get jobs in my field...I've been on interviews, I've talked to many people, I've networked. Maybe the timing isn't right? I have noticed that most companies are hiring internally when a position is available.
Very often I receive the advice - "you should get your Master's." Yes, I should. I would be most likely to obtain a better job.
But it's a catch 22. If I go back to get my Master's - I'll have more loans. Do I really want that? No. I completely understand that I'll be more likely to get a higher-paying job so I can pay off my loans faster...but it's a lot!
I've often thought about going to school in another country. I know a handful of people who have done that and have been able to get great scholarships or some Pay Day Loans UK that didn't have a high interest rate.
So here I am...the middle of my catch 22.
No matter what I do - I know God's got this. He is in control - not me. That's what gives me my sanity. :)
AND - being happy helps a whole lot, too!
