I don't actually believe that student loans should be forgive. I do believe they should be dischargeable in bankruptcy. However, this is close enough. What could stimulate the economy more than freeing up large amounts of former student's incomes to .... well, realistically, pay rent and buy food. But hypothetically, to spend on consumer bull shit.
I'm actually in this predicament right now. I have a 40 inch old fashioned TV. It's as wide as it big and takes up 1/3 of my small New York apartment. I decided that I should invest $99 bucks in an Apple TV so I can cancel cable. I didn't even realize, that to save money, I need to buy a fucking new TV. It's hopeless! I could buy a really nice TV with the $600 I fork over to Access monthly. You can't even save money without spending money I don't have.
Aside from that, for an update. My practice is busy, thank GOD. My hourly rate is shit though. But that's how you get the clients. But I'm doing lots of family where I'm constantly subjected to abuse by my clients, judges and opposing counsel. JOY! I'm trying really hard and I know I do a good job, but I may burn out soon. I am one of the lucky ones. I would do Real Estate closings except I lost lots of money on closings that didn't go through because the buyers failed to get funding. As we all know, you have to mold your practice to the work that's available. I count my blessings I have any work at all and pray that I can pay my bills from month to month.
