Paying your way through college is very educational. Period!

Many students do it!

I and every single one of my siblings paid for college ourselves.

It's tough, but doable. Working minimum wage is horrible while going to school. But you don't need a new car, iPhone, expensive luxuries, or any unneeded desires.
You don't have to start off at a University--go to a junior college like Snow like I did. You take the same classes which are smaller and half the price of many bigger schools in the state. It can be done. You just have to want it badly enough.
You always have money for the things you want. You can't afford school but you can afford $70 a month for your phone. You can afford to eat out a few times a week. You can even afford to make payments on that nice car or truck. It's where your heart is.

I wish people would get angry!

Does anyone get tired of being told, you can't do anything without government help?

Are we a nation of wimps?
