How College Screwed Me..

You don't have to look far to find a post about how college is a scam or not worth the money.  The nations college loan is a 1.5+Trillion dollar bubble which could burst soon and impact all of our lives.

So many articles encouraging young people to forego college and avoid the debt.  In some ways I don't disagree.  I believe EVERYONE should get an education, but at what cost?


My journey through college was a bit different.  Coming from a divorced family, I grew up in a tougher atmosphere and help in any way from my parents wasn't going to happen.

So I left for the military when I was 17.  No help from my parents except a ride to boot camp.  Don't get me wrong, I love my parents but they just didn't have the ability to pay for college.  I wasn't going to get buried in loan and I wasn't going to rot in a shit job.

So off I went...

Five years later I returned from the west coast with one year of college completed and all of my education paid for.  I worked my ball sack off and completed my Engineering degree and my MBA.  Although my education was completely paid for from the military, I still worked part time all through college and came out with no debts.


So what's the fucking problem?
