…You are so great, and I so small:
I am nothing, you are all:
Being nothing, I can take this way.
Oh I need neither rise nor fall,
For when I do not move at all
I shall be out of all your day…
– Edwin Muir.
This is pretty much how I feel about my student debt at the moment. It’s really no wonder that people in this country are so certain in two things: death and taxes; Death, and taxes, and student debt – in my case. These are the greatest certainties that America has revealed to me. And all three of them feel the same.
Or maybe I’m wrong.
I hope I’m wrong.
These is something that is a helluva lot nobler about death.
