I Could be Working

...But then I wouldn't get financial aid.

The very fact that I earned enough money to pay my rent and part of school expenses deems me financially less eligible for loans in the '07-'08 year, which is great except for the fact that I won't be working at all next year.

Financial aid is a bureaucratic mess that benefits the few poor kids who made it to college, and for the others (like myself) who don't actually have $22,000 a year sitting around to throw toward college, we're stuck avoiding work and kicking ourselves for being nice enough to the boss to earn a Christmas bonus.

Can't a workaholic get a little help here?
