I didn’t realize it, but apparently, spring break is just around the corner.
I blame my forgetfulness on a couple things: the chilly weather outside and the chilling realization that corporate life has made time off between January and June foreign to me. (No paid holidays between Martin Luther King Day and Memorial Day; this is the true “winter,” my friends.)
To get over my grief, I checked out how others plan to spend their breaks. And, of course, there’s no better place to do this research than Twitter.
Right now, students are battling finals and recent grads are taking on their first loan payments. If there were ever a time for a motivational speech, this would be it. (Sadly, you’ll have to settle for today’s tweet instead.)
For many students, December marks the end of college and the beginning of “the real world.” At least today’s tweet is preparing financially. Check it out.
It sounds like today’s tweet should have visited SALT’s Carnival Of #20SomethingProblems. If not for the loan advice, then at least for the sugary confections. Check it out.
Starbucks is trending on Twitter, but it’s not because people really love gingerbread lattes this time of year. (Well, they do, but that’s not the point.) Find out the real reason in today’s tweet!
Struggling to find the perfect holiday gift? Well, for many people on your list, today’s tweet knows just what they want. (And, no, it’s not Beats headphones.) Check it out!
Today’s tweet is starting down the road of repayment, but it may not be as long as he thinks (if he already made one loan payment, then he’ll have “only” 119 left). Yay?
Currently, outstanding student loan debt totals over $1 trillion. Still, $153 million could do a lot of good for a lot of borrowers (or, at least, for the author of today’s tweet). What do you think, Jacoby?
You have #20SomethingProblems but, with SALT™, The Red doesn’t have to be one. We’ve teamed up with some great sponsors (like Lenovo) to offer information and prizes that can help you tackle your financial issues and live well on a tight budget.
For instance, we all know how expensive an education can be—especially buying new textbooks and electronics. Well, by visiting FaceTheRed.com, you could save yourself on those costs by winning a tablet from Lenovo! Plus, Lenovo knows additional ways to help you learn, like TED-Ed lectures. They wrote the excerpt below when this series was just an idea—but now, you can check it out for yourself to see how successful you think it is.
