There are times when we forget about student loans and the huge financial responsibility that comes with them. Needless to say, this is a burden that no other country in the world knows, and people who have no idea about how it feels would be baffled by these tweets that were posted in a viral Twitter thread.
1. The life
Some would say that having a life full of debt is a nightmare but many people in the U.S have no other choice. As you can see, this person will pay only the bare minimum for decades.
2. The grad school
It seems that this person really needs to find a great job in order to pay the debt that will surely begin to pile up even more and will pass the $100,000 mark.
3. The small debt
$20,000 is not a small amount of money but it is not that much compared to what others have to pay, too. This person hopes that they will be debt-free soon.
4 The payment
Here is how one person is forced to pay a hefty monthly amount of money only to cover a part of their student loans. It seems that this is not something people are capable of overcoming.
5. The debt
Now, this is one person who was fortunate enough to be able to pay off their debt each month but the problem is the amount is too big to be covered fully soon.
6. The huge sum
We sometimes wonder if students realize that having to pay off that much money is not something they should tolerate. They have no choice, though, and they reluctantly do it.
7. The direction
This person was surprised to see that their debt kept growing because of the pandemic which caused them to stop paying it off.
8. The huge numbers
People are often concerned about how they would be able to pay off their debt and nobody could blame them, as nobody would like to be in debt for a long time.
9. The doctor
Medics are part of the students with the biggest debt of all and that has a perfectly good explanation. Still, having to return a whopping amount of money is not a nice feeling.
10. The classes
It is true that studying is expensive but it should not be that expensive. This person made a good point – a few people would be lucky to find a job that covers the loans and pays the bills.
11. The degree
The problem is that some people never reach the point when they get to use the diploma they paid a six-figure price for. This person shared her opinion on the matter.
12. The interest
Imagine what this person’s total debt must be if the interest alone is nearly $30,000. This seems to be impossible to return and the person will probably have to pay it their whole life.
13. The balance
There are moments when people think that continuing with their life is more or less impossible. It appears that there is a possible explanation and this post suggests one.
14. The graduation
Here is a person who shows that you can be in huge debt before you even have a diploma. As you can see, this person will surely rack up an even bigger debt over time.
15. The list
Here is one example that we are sure will impress a lot of people. We felt bad for this person because it is obvious that they are right about retirement savings.
16. The whopping amount
It seems that this is one of the biggest student loan debts we have seen and we are not sure how this person hopes to pay it off in less than three years but we guess that we should wish them luck.
17. The long-term debt
There are moments when we believe we can return everything we owe but we are convinced that some people are not that certain about it
18. The current balance
It seems that people who owe this kind of money have two choices – they should either settle with the fact that they will pay it for the rest of their life or they would need to have a plan to return them fast.
19. The payment
Now, this is the kind of atttiude that many people with huge student loans have and it is perfectly understandable. After all, people are not happy about having to pay that much money.
20. The summary
It appears that people who are in a similar position are always kind of frustrated because having such huge debts means that their lives are basically tied to that fact.
21. The current balance
As much as this person would like to, no divine power would be able to create some kind of magic and make the debt go away in an instant. This is something the person needs to do.
22. The plan
Here is yet another person who decided to create a plan on how to pay off their loans. It seems the plan is not the best possible one but since the person cannot handle it, it was the only option.
23. The return
This is another plan that a person with a huge student loan came up with but it is just not the solution that will make the problem go away. Nobody would accept such a return.
24. The balance
Well, there you have it – more than $300,000 of debt is the kind of thought that would haunt is for the rest of our lives.
25. The half
Seeing how this person paid more than a hundred thousand dollars and only covered half of their loan is frustrating.
26. The amount
This is the tweet that started the thread and you can sense this person is not feeling all that good about it.
27. The rising debt
It seems that paying off the loan is not always happening according to the initial plan and this tweet confirms it.
