My life sucks because I made a mistake of GOING TO COLLEGE!! Would've been better off working at a warehouse for a number of years and get paid more. Studied Media Arts and Animation and got my bachelor's. 2 years have passed since I gruadated and still can't get a job in the field or even get a job as a dishwasher. I'm always updating my demo reel and portfolio and it's just not good enough for "them"!! Sallie Mae is now calling me everyday even on the holidays demanding me to pay them back or else they will be garnishing my wages and take my tax refunds and social security in the future. People tell me to start paying my loans and I'm going "How the FUCK can I pay $1200 a month on a $9/hr job." Make a payment plan? Yeah right!! For what? For them to jack up the interest rate and STILL declare me as delinquent even though we agreed that I'd pay an "affordable" amount on my "budget"(Yeah right, WHAT BUDGET!!! I'm poor PERIOD!!) THEN put me on default and jack a penalty fee of $30,000? Employers will not hire me because of my credit and obviously think that I'm going to steal from them since I'm in debt AND the fact that I'm hispanic. Of course Arizona employers are going to think that way about hispanics. I've been turned down from 7 good paying jobs that could've helped me pay back the loans but no!! My life sucks!! Stuck here eating wheat bread and drinking water everyday. Just got fired from a warehouse job without a good explanation. They didn't even give me a chance to do the actual job that I was supposed to do. All they did was make me do clean up work while they were training other new hires then fired me. That's fantastic!! Getting tired of people telling me to take responsibility about my loans and it just makes me want to punch them!! Oh yeah easier said thatn done. How can I progress when there's absolutely NOTHING that i can do to fix this. Unless I become a homeless/hungry Sallie Mae slave and pay the debt with minimum wage jobs until I die and not be able to enjoy life AT ALL!!
DON'T GO TO COLLEGE PEOPLE!!!! Unless mommy and daddy are paying for it!!
