    My boyfriend went to school first and got his bachelor’s degree… in art (graphic design). His family paid for his tuition and I paid most of the bills at home. The plan was that when he was done he would get a better-paying job and I could focus on school while he paid the bills. But the better-paying job never materialized (not for his lack of trying either!). Neither one of us makes much money and the cost of living keeps going up. So I have to keep working full time. I was enrolled part time for a while but over the summer I just decided to go balls to the wall and get it over with. No one is paying for my tuition. I still have another year left before my bachelor’s degree, then I have to take a few pre-reqs, and THEN I can apply to grad school (which I need for the job that I want). What a long road! He wants to go to grad school but it’s more important for me to finish first because I’m working toward a more lucrative career. If everyone decides to go to therapy school in the next few years and the market becomes saturated I will scream!

    We are not trying to be rich or anything, just a little more stable than we are now. But it’s damn near impossible.
