Welcome Back!

Greetings, all! I hope the blog finds you energized and ready for the spring semester. Entertain me. Tell me the most ridiculous piece of advice you got during the break. If you prefer, take a moment to question something that previous generations seem to take for granted. I hope to make use of your anecdotes when the film class covers The Graduate in a couple of weeks, so respond quickly!

    On my quest for finding and figuring out how to pay for college, I got many pieces of advice from adults, some who didn’t even go to college. Something that some adults seem to not think about when I discuss my quest for a college is the funding required in order to do so. The problem for me hasn’t been whether or not I have been accepted to a college, but rather how I am going to pay for a college even with financial aid. Currently, my plan is to attend Mississippi State University. Their quote for what they will charge me is around $25,000 with a $5,000. I agree that some money is better than no money, but that still leaves me with $20,000 in debt. My estimated debt will be around $100,000 by the time I earn my bachelor’s degree. This is without graduate school. I guess I will just have to pay student loans for the rest of my life and never be able to truly live a stress-free life.
