Going back a few years....the economy's gone down further than Captain Nemo. *insert flushing toilet noise* It's pretty safe to say that we are
in the midst deeply rooted in a recession
(Moment of Silence)
The entire time though, the whole thing has just been a news item for me. Something for those old people to talk about on TV, a pain for all the working people in the world, devastating for the ones who've lost jobs and their savings. But little did I know it would affect me too. Let's break it down:
Arizona State University just got told by the state that their pulling the plug on some $80 million. Wow. State funding is going back to 1998 levels. How is the biggest/fastest growing University doing to handle this? Layoffs, program mergers/eliminations, tuition raises, and many other things. Great!! I'm just glad that W.P. didn't get touched...at least not yet. Triple :(
Im relying on the stock market a little bit more to make make a couple extra dollars. And it just keeps going down.....Student loans are whats keeping me afloat. Thank you federal government for you're endless supply of funds at a very low interest rate.
I'm about to graduate too....and there are no jobs. NICE!!! Quadruple :(
That is all.
