I try not to be such a negative person and when it comes to finance, you have to think beyond what happened in the past. The financial mistakes I have made in the past are sunk costs so I can…

A Money Finance Blog – Beginnings of a Money Moron

Apparently I decided during my junior/senior years that I was going to get into MASSIVE student loan debt by attending an out of state 4 year Big 10 university. Apply for scholarships?
