July 25, 2013

With student loan debt averaging $27,000 and interest rates on the rise – even with the proposed legislation the Senate may vote on today – that’s a lot of cash out of your pocket over the next decade. Sometimes it’s good to indulge your imagination and think what you could do if you didn’t have those student loans to contend with. Here’s what we were thinking…

#1 Buy a Muscle Car and Tear Up the Roads $25,000

Watch out Vin Diesel – I’m faster and furiouser than you’ll ever be now that I ditched my student loans…

#2 Hire Donald Trump to Speak for One Minute $25,000

One minute was all I could take – this makes my student loans seem not too terrible…

#3 Indulge in One Bottle of Angostura Legacy Rum $25,000

Premium rum $25,000 – plastic cup and straw $2 – getting drunk and forgetting student loans: priceless!

#4 Amp It Up at Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp with Four Buddies $24,000 

Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars, live in hilltop homes, payin’ no student loans…

#5 Hang Out With Lindsay in Rehab at Betty Ford $27,000

 Whoa – she really is a mean girl. At least she never had to worry about student loans…

#6 Make a Low, Low, Low Budget Indie Horror Film $27,000

“Back when I was into indie filmmaking…” sounds much better than “back when I was eating Ramen to pay off my student loans…”

Ugghh. No wonder they call it the vomit comet – and I thought student loans made me queasy…
