Let me take a moment...

TO VENT. Seriously.

I'm just so sick of students (college), in Florida, to be exact, complaining about how much money they have to spend on college tuition because Bright Futures cut some money off.

Are you aware that VERY few states even have a college assistance program? Are you aware that you are an incredibly blessed student to have any sort of FREE aid to help you in the first place? Are you aware that until 1997 people had to pay for college WITH NO HELP from the state?

You need to take a step back from your high horse and be thankful that you live in a state that is willing to help you in any way. You need to be thankful that an assistance program still exists for you to even get to go to college in the first place.

You should be grateful for everything -- ANYTHING, that the state is willing to give you, they don't have to!

Ask someone out-of-state how much they were willing to pay to go to college and get an education and maybe it will put it in prospective..

  1. So true. I freaked out when I handed in my tuition check, but Michael is looking at colleges...and when the tuition is $15,000+ suddenly mine didn't seem so bad. :)
