I'm just here to update what's going on in my life and maybe have a small rant.
So this fall I'll be starting my senior year of high school. I feel so old. Senior year is usually the year you start applying for colleges/visiting colleges. For me, this would be all fine and dandy except for one thing: My mom is currently not in a financial position to pay for college. My sister is still in college and she's even having trouble paying for her due to losing some financial aid due to recently getting remarried. The dad paying? He has his own kids to pay for. So I don't even know if I'll be able to go to college in time. I might be able to do community college for two years until we've saved up enough to send me to a university. Problem is, I can barely drive. I probably won't have my license by then and even if I do, we still can't afford a car.
My question is, why is college so expensive? It's probably put many people in debt. I feel they should either make it cheaper or just let the government fund it. Though, we would get taxed for it.
Also small update, I've been back in Illinois for a few days now. Yay!
