I’m going into debt — significant debt!
Why am I going into significant debt? For a Creative Writing degree.
I don’t need a degree to be a great writer. Look at Danielle Steel.
So why am I using financial aid to pay for an education I don’t need?
The answers are simple.
I’m already dreaming of what it will feel like to hold that diploma in my hands come June 2022. To know I earned it, they did not give it to me.
Then there is this part of me that will be able to go “neener neener” to all the naysayers of my life. Petty? Probably. Do I care? No.
