Graduate School

Going for your masters degree online is one of the most annoying things in the entire world. Like, is it even worth it to have a decent job anymore?

Group projects? I’m a f*cking adult capable of doing my own work. Why do I have to engage in this preposterous activity and also rely on complete strangers to carry their own weight?


And then when they don’t because they’re useless, I have to pick up the slack and they still get credit even though I filled out a complaint form with supporting documents such as emails and text messages with them admitting to not doing any work!


I’m a little bitter, if you couldn’t tell. 

Moving on…

The discussions. Please, kill me. I can only respond to so many ridiculous posts. If the initial post is thoughtless or incoherent, how am I supposed to respond? I don’t even know what you’re saying, so I can’t possibly answer you… but I have to have a minimum of 8 responses done per week, on 4 or more different days. So it’s a struggle just to make 8, and just to be inconvenient, they can’t all be done on one day. Thanks. Thanks for making online classes more annoying by creating an ‘attendance’ tracker. 

Speaking of discussions, they’re discussions. They’re not ‘copy the entire chapter from the online book and post it as your discussion’. I get super irritated when a post is too long and it fills up more than the entire screen, causing the blue ‘unread’ dot to stay present on the thread. 

I might have a touch of OCD. 

Actually I have OCD. I DID A GROUP PROJECT ON IT LAST WEEK!

For the love of god, if you’re going for your masters, you should just be smarter. Period. 

Much love and good luck ladies and gents,

Student Debt…


Student Loans. 
The words actually make me vomit in my mouth. Why do jobs require degrees and then not pay a high enough salary to afford a student loan payment and also eat dinner regularly? 

I’m really happy for the kids about to get free college, mostly because I hope it continues until I have kids and they’re college age because I will STILL be paying off my own debt so they’ll be on their own. 

If you’re from New York and recently graduated (after December 2014) check out this link and thank me later: NYS Get on Your Feet Program. If you qualify, they pay 24 of your payments. That’s 2 years for you to try and get yourself together. And you don’t have to pay a penny back, which is awesome. 

Also, if you’re struggling to pay your loans and the amount you owe is growing g because the interest rate is out of control… REFINANCE! You can do that. Many banks will help you as long as your payments are on time and you’re trying to do the right thing. If you’re sitting on a loan that has a higher interest rate than 7%, you’re going to be paying forever, or until you hit mega millions and unfortunately, that’s not likely. 

And if you haven’t taken any loans out yet, say no to Navient, former Sallie Mae because they don’t even want the money back, they literally want your soul. That’s why they repeatedly try to crush it. 

Much love and good luck ladies and gents,
