What are your financial goals? Where do you want to be in 10 years? Just like these are important questions to ask yourself about your career, savings, insurance, and the like; they’re also key questions to sit down and talk with your kids about, as well. So many of us have ended up trapped under debt that we never really understood the gravity of when we were younger – student loan debt.
You may not know it, but I never finished college. I wish I would have, though. Of course, having the degree would be nice, but what would be nicer would be to have something to show for the student loans that I am STILL paying off. That’s right. I’m still paying off my student loans. I have a son at the end of his high school career, and I am still paying off student loans on an education that I never completed. Crazy, I know.
I can’t tell you how much of a burden it is to STILL by trying to get out from under that ridiculous debt that I racked up. And the worst part is, I know my son is staring down the barrel of a smoking student debt gun when he goes to college as well. He’s a good student, but he’s not so good that he’ll get a full ride. Which means he’ll be one of the massive number of kids across the country who will be drowning under a combined student loan debt totaling $1 trillion. One. Trillion. Let’s type that out so you get a good idea. $1,000,000,000,000. THAT is how much student debt my son and his fellow students across the country are going to be in. Unacceptable.
