Do you think that it's worth it to take out a loan in order to go to college? Should debt be a fear?
I took out a massive loan to go to university. My reason is because nursing is my dream and I will pursue that dream no matter what. I vowed to study and work hard, to graduate, pass my board exam, and become a damn good nurse.
My debt will eventually be paid off. It may not be 3-5 years, but it eventually will be. I’d rather live happily knowing I’m caring for people as a nurse, and happily with my family, while paying off my debt, than to not have gone to college and struggle with close to minimum wage jobs for the rest of my life. Sometimes, you gotta do with what you gotta do given the situation that you’re in.
Those are one of my personal reasons. Generally speaking, if you’re going to take out a massive loan just to go to college, get high, party and fuck around, don’t even do it cause you’re wasting the spot in that school for someone who could actually work hard and succeed. You’ll also be wasting your own time and money.
Debt should not be a fear as long as in the end, you know you will make something of it and pay it off. Remember to struggle a little now, and enjoy the rest of your life, than to enjoy a little now and struggle for the rest of your life.
