Just kidding. I was being sarcastic.
Because that's what I do.
I'm trying to iron out this student loan business, but it sucks. So bad. Right now I'm currently scolding myself and my parents for not letting me get a real job. Throughout high school I had the desire to get one, but either there wasn't one available, or my parents told me to focus more on my grades.
So now, here I am, in need of a co-signer for my loans because I have no credit history. Awesome.
And I mean, I've gone down the avenues of asking most of my family members and everything, but everyone's credit is so shitty that they're automatically denied. This past year wasn't a good year for my parents. Their business was hit pretty hard with the recent economic downturn, so they aren't in the position to co-sign for me. My mom lives off of my step-dad's income, so she isn't eligible to co-sign for me.
I'm stuck. Right now I'm running through my options with my parents, and they consist of two things. 1)Find a co-signer, or don't go to college because most application deadlines for other schools have passed, or 2)Join ROTC, they'll pay for my schooling fully, during summer I'd have to train with them, and then after I graduate I'd have to serve 2 years of active duty.
Personally, I don't like option 2 because I'm not a military-type person, but according to my dad, it's either that or no college for me.
I just got off the phone with my mom trying to figure out if there's anyone on her side of the family that could help, but my options aren't looking to good.
The entire situation is silly. And I'm not angry at anyone, or anything, I just feel---- sad.
I wish my family was capable of paying for my education. I wish I knew someone who was eligible to co-sign on my loans. I wish everything was OK.
So. I'm going to put on my happy face, and try to work something out.
*edit: currently working something out.
