Welcome to life on Earth. Ok,

Welcome to life on Earth.

Ok, so things started to go downhill at your job, did you try finding another job?
Financial aid is loans. Or maybe you mean you tried getting scholarships? College is expensive and unfortunatly there isnt much that can be done to immediately change anything about it.

What I would suggest is trade school if you want to learn something while getting skills and earning money to pay for it.
If I knew then what I know now, I very likely would have done trade school instead of college. However, now I have a degree in engineering which will only be worth something if I can find a job somewhere in my field where about only 19% of the jobs are available for new grads; seriously, I dont know where they are finding all these experienced people. Engineering fields are heading towards a diaster because they favor the experienced worker over the newcomer. Give it about 10-20 years and you will start seeing the companies rushing to try and fill slots once all these guys start to retire.

Yes, I took student loans to pay for it and I have debt. However, mine is only half the average which means once I have a permanent job, it will be paid off in under a year. The next bubble is often said to be the student loan bubble. With so many saddled with so much debt something is going to happen which will likely see alot of debt forgiven because its almost impossible that it will be paid off. Am I going to wait aound for this to happen, no I am not.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.
