A college student in California costs the state $8,667 per year; a prisoner costs it $45,006 a year.
I was brainstorming ways in which I could put my other degree to use. Ya know, the one I HAD to obtain while working on my primary major? I still regret going for elementary education and english. Like, what was I thinking with that last part? What to do with an English degree:
-work in a library?
-find a job as an editor somewhere?
-start writing a novel?
-keep up with a blog?
It was as we were tossing different ideas around that something was brought to my attention; I am really good at focusing on what is between the lines. For example, when all that noise in Boston was taking place, I was more intrigued by the story of the man in a cowboy hat pinching Jeff Bauman’s arteries shut than I was anything else. I enjoy finding out the scoop to things, and I’m good at it. So here we go. How oh how to turn this into something fruitful and perhaps even profitable? to me. Hmmm.
When you think you’re getting your scene tight. Stacking paper. Doing well and BOOM! You get sick for two weeks and cant work and SURPRISE! Heres a student loan you had LITERALLY NO IDEA ABOUT coming in to blind side you ALL AT ONCE.
Always all at once.
