A modern take on “I Dreamed a Dream. ‘ Hanna Knuuttnen sings about dreaming to be free of student debt.
FIELD NOTES FROM THE FUNNY OR DIE STAFF
Debt sucks, but student debt in particular sucks even more. There ‘s just something inherently evil about institutions marketing themselves as the answer to giving your life the most promising start it can have WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY weighing you down with crippling debt payments that will last years and years.
Like if your doctor was like, “Here ‘s the surgery that will help you run, and by the way, we ‘re going to have to remove your feet. ‘
Over 44 million people owe more than $1.5 trillion in student debt in the United States. That ‘s $1,500,000,000,000. That is INSANE.
And incredibly sad. So thank you to Hannah Knuuttnen for capturing this sad state of affairs, and dreaming of a time when debilitating financial problems weren ‘t features of a new college degree.
This rendition on debt comes to you from Let That Marinate Productions.
