On you.Nov 17, 2022 at 3:00pmYou did it wrong if after 10 years you had not adjusted at some point to change the debt load. Fear not....Nov 17, 2022 at 3:12pmtaxpayers will absolve you of YOUR debt...just play the victim somehow. You knowNov 18, 2022 at 12:50pmThere is such a thing as books smarts and having common sense !I hope that $125,000 dollars at least bought you some books and a bit of knowledge you can use for something.Apparently you are not the sharpest knife in the drawer huh ?Pick a career and get on with it. A permastudentNov 18, 2022 at 7:52pmHave you considered that the reason you’re doing this is because you’re afraid that you can’t cut it in the regular having-a-job kind of life? As long as you’re still going to school you don’t have to truly test your abilities, or be judged, or possibly fail. It’s a way of avoiding having to put yourself out there to see what you’re made of. Now thisNov 26, 2022 at 9:34pmIs a confession!Finish a degree. Save some of that student loans for a plane ticket (with a bit of a stash for living expenses) and move to Europe and never come back. declareNov 28, 2022 at 4:57pmbankruptcy. not such a bad thing and a new start. not worth the stress. @ A permastudentDec 1, 2022 at 11:01amUniversity is the first and best place I ever learned to test my abilities, be judged, and possibly fail. No previous job tested my limits like this. It's incredibly demanding in terms of time and effort. When I was ready, that school offered on campus jobs and work coop positions that set me up for a permanent, excellent career. I suspect the OP is simply floundering due to the lack of a focused career goal. You get what you make of it. @@a permastudentDec 1, 2022 at 6:50pmYes, I know. I was a student myself. But there’s a huge difference between the testing you get while being a student, and the expectations placed upon you when you’re working at whatever career it is that you’re studying for. That whole concept of “those who can, do, while those who can’t, teach” has some merit. I have massive respect for teachers btw, so I’m not suggesting that being one is easy or without merit. But there is definitely more pressure in the competitive marketplace of the workplace. @declareDec 1, 2022 at 6:52pmIn Canada student loans don’t qualify to be written off in a bankruptcy, as far as I know. That’s something that changed many years ago I think. LOAD MORE Join the Discussion Your name Comment * your name What's your name?
