Duck, Duck, Student Loans, Get Gone ! – Section8
“First off congrats on all you dummies who took out so much money for bills, groceries, 2016 chargers, challengers, dates, drugs, & new clothes! You now owe all that plus more back in student loans.” – Section8Investor
Anyway, let’s talk about a solution that could possibly get you out of that nasty debt. I call it the student loan challenge. Yes, the Student Loan Challenge ! Let’s not act like America isn’t 1.2 Trillion Dollars in Debt. A whopping 44.2 Million Americans have student loan debt! That number is scary than ever. Also, the graduating class of 2017 owes roughly 35K a piece for their undergraduate degree, let’s not even talk graduate degrees (Masters). The crazy thing is these numbers are steady climbing! How the hell are you even thinking about buying a house or start investing…… different story, different blog. Anyway, that’s why a friendly game of Get it Gone, Student Loan is exactly for “YOU”.
Get it Gone, Student Loan
I remember after I received my undergraduate degree, I was thinking to myself how in the world am I going to pay these student loans? It was a disaster I tell you an complete nightmare. Unfortunately, in the Black Community we like to hide our money problems and act like we are a part of the 3 percent, so you could imagine how alone I felt while playing this game by myself. Which sucked a**! Well not literally, – but you catch my drift. 6 months after you graduate school, best believe Sally Mae and her corporate assiciates is coming for your soul and everything else you own; No call or heads up, just a piece of paper in the mail with your outstanding balance. Don’t let it get you down, it’s now time to take action and that’s why Get it Gone, Student Loan is the perfect game for you and your broke non-invested friends!
- Preferably 3 or more friends who all have high amounts of student loan debt
- Set a 1 year goal and a hundred dollar buy in to play
- Check in monthly too see who takes the lead (Motivational Purspose)
- Winner who paid the most take home the money (hopefully it goes to student debt)
- Play again until each of your students loans disappear forever
It will be a challenge but don’t give up. This game will teach you how to handle money as well throughout the course. Student loan debt is causing harmful damage to the economy, especially if you are from the Lower Class. There are other downfall factors you may face already while living in the Lower Economy (unemployment, minimum wage, single parent, & other debt). Don’t let it dry you up, take it by the horn and ring it out!
