So I went to school for my Master's degree with visions of opportunity and doors opening. I graduate in a comfortable position, I can be somewhat choosey and really try to find the job I want to have.
Fast forward 6 months and cold hard reality has hit me in the face. My student loans are coming due, and seeing that amount of debt put a weight on my chest like I've never felt before. I have not made a single cent since graduating, yet here they come a calling wanting their money. I realize that because I'm unemployed I qualify for a deferment, but at this point it feels inevitable. I'm going to have to find a job, ANY job that will start income coming in.
I had a dream of working online, allowing me to stay home and not have to use daycare as much. It means so much to me to raise my own child, but it means more to provide a comfortable life for the family. My income is vital to that, and since the family is proving costly to obtain as well, it's time to tuck tail and settle.
