The Cost of College is Making My Daughter Angry and I Get It

And I don’t want to become one of those “back in my day” people.

I do spite math. This is when something gets my dander up and I run numbers on it so that I can be pissed off about it and be able to logically support my pissiness.

I’m not one for pissiness for pissiness’s sake.

The cost of college has so far outpaced inflation that the end of our kids’ senior year in high school doesn’t bring joy, but rather anxiety.

The commentary about paying for college needs to stop. I had it easy. My parents were able to foot the bill for my college tuition because it wasn’t going to put them in the poor house. I can do the same for my daughter but it’s taken me 16 years to save the money to do that.
