25 and Deep in Debt

[Ed. Note: It's hard to believe that a "value system that promotes progressive thought" ended so badly for her. Wait... No, it isn't. Nevermind. Maybe next time, she'll read DollarVigilante.com]

I am honored to be a daughter of Cincinnati and am humbled to have grown up in such a wonderful community. I attended St. Margaret of York grade school and then matriculated from the reputable Ursuline Academy. After high school, I earned degrees from Miami and Xavier universities. Because of my local education, Cincinnati is more than my hometown – she is the mother who raised me into the woman I am now. I am Cincinnati.

My pursuit in excellent education is rooted in a value system that promotes progressive thought for the betterment of the individual as well as society. Education is a core tenet and vested interest of the functioning democratic society. Upon that basic assumption and principle, I am overwhelmingly incensed by the silent epidemic of crippling student debt.

    Who forced her to spend that kind of money getting a degree with little prospect of getting a job in the field? The age of getting a generic or none useable liberal arts degree before obtaining a good paying job in a totally unrelated field are long gone. The first two years are basic subjects. At the end of that you better know what you can get a job in before you go on.

    Perhaps I missed it, but did she ever mention WHAT her degree(s) actually was(were)?

    Obviously she learned how to write, and considering the higher-than-necessary level of her writing which seems crafted to convince the world of how superior she is intellectually, I’m guessing it was one of those ivory tower degrees in worthlessness. Maybe Philosophy and/or Women/Diversity Studies? She’s got to have at least one of the latter, based on her emphasis of daughter-, woman- and motherhood and taking upon herself the powerful mantle of Cincinnati.

    I love how Katie and her ilk blame society rather than themselves. No one forced them to take the money and go into massive debt to pursue a degree that had a low probability of landing a job. Stupid is as stupid does. Step one for any degree search: research the potential return of any degree you wish to pursue.

    Let’s give the Readers Digest version, shall we?

    “I am an irresponsible, short-sighted ignoramus. I know that. But because of my parents inability and/or unwillingness to instill common sense in me and because of my liberal education, I can in no way lay the blame for this upon myself. I refuse to be held culpable in my own downfall. Society is to blame.”
