Time to complain....

So, Even though I thought I had everything settled last week with my school loan people, here they come calling again. Can you believe these people want me to pay $116 every MONTH!?!!!?!?! Surree, that's not a ton of money to some people, but that's a lot of money to me, when you make the kind of money I do.

Okay, here's the deal.
All your life you hear how education is sooooo important and blah blah blah. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I got a degree.....but what's it all worth now a days? You go to school, take out loans (b/c you're poor.......not poor poor, but the kind of poor where you can still go to college as long as you get loans), and pay to get a piece of paper saying your educated.
THEN, you graduate school, only to find out that people with masters degrees are going for the same entry level jobs as you. (Or Purple Heart war veterans with masters degrees are going after the entry level jobs....but whose bitter?) The economy is so bad, that they have to go for jobs that are technically speaking, well below them. On that note, don't even get me started on how I think masters degrees are scams, as well as most higher education programs....I digress.
So here I am, barely making minimum wage, and these ridiculous loan people are hounding me, telling me that they are reporting my delinquency (big word, i know...) to my credit score people!!!!
It's ridiculous. What kind of country is this? I'll tell you who can solve this....Oprah. Yes, I'm writing Oprah to pay my bills. Actually, I'll write 3 letters.
1 to Oprah
1 to Celine Dion
and 1 to Obama.
If they can't fix this, I don't know who can..
