“You should go to college,” they said. “Just get a loan,” they said. “You’ll get a job as soon as you graduate… you’ll see.” But when there were no jobs to be found (at least not in your field or livable salary range), then what? Get married, work your ass off and maybe one day you’ll lift the impossible load of debt you now carry.
This is our reality. This is the current American nightmare, as many college graduates are discovering that their version of the American Dream is never going to happen. It seems like the only acceptable form of paying for school, is the one that keeps you in debt until you’re 35. But what other options are really there?
Good for you. You get a gold star for doing everything the hard way. You now get to stand on your soap box later in life. But, if you didn’t have to work those three jobs, you might have been able to secure a better job outside of school. What if you had the luxury of spending those twenty hours working a dead end job on networking or internships instead? Because sadly, that is what working an internship is now-a-days: a luxury.
A scholarship is great if you can get it. But your chances of actually securing a full ride are slim to none. In addition, total federal grant aid declined by 10 percent since 2011 making grant possibilities limited.
Congratulations, you were one of the lucky ones. Not every family has a nest egg large enough to send all their children to school. Even if they planned for it early on, a lot of things can happen in eighteen years. (Just ask the millions of Americans who lost their savings after the Recession hit). So unless you are one of the blessed few with money savvy parents, or trust funds the size of small countries, this route to a college degree may not be an option.
So what about everyone else? The ones without the scholarships that also don’t feel like graduating with a five figure note to their name. Are they just fated to have bad credit scores for the rest of their twenties and the word “someday” always lingering on their lips? We can’t really accept that as the only reality.
Obviously, I’m not the only one who feels that way. One million college students are currently registered on SeekingArrangement worldwide. Students across the world are searching for another solution, and they’ve found one in Sugar Daddies. Is it so hard to believe that sugar can add value to someone’s life?
Walk a mile in these shoes before you decide to judge a book by the cover you chose for it. Chances are, you’d probably stumble because these heels are so high. I will be the first to admit that sugar is not for everyone. It is not for the faint of heart, nor the old fashioned romantic. It’s also not for the desperate soul with nowhere else to go. But, this is a valid lifestyle choice. A secret society of men and women who are living their life in a way that you have only dreamed of.
If you could go back in time and spend your college years more focused on securing a better future, than securing the funds to get you through the next week… who are we kidding? Of course you would.
