Experiencing the power of theatre as therapy
2:24 am

 I’m 100% considering an online degree in psychology, either with SNHU.edu or walden.edu….whichever takes more of my credits that I have, offers a better financial aid package, and has a better psychology program. My long-term goal is to go for a master’s degree in drama therapy, at either NYU or California Institute of Integral Studies….

The thing is, due to ECSU’s lack thereof in help with funding, less than helpful financial aid office and less than adequate theatre program, I’m drowning in student loan debt. The financial aid office at ECSU was 100% USELESS to me, thus the massive debt, due to lack of knowledge of how the system works.  When I tried to make an appointment with a counselor, only to get told that he “couldn’t meet with me” on a day I had selected, without giving me any other alternative dates he WAS available for, and when I did that, he never returned my emails-thus the $80K in debt (that and living on campus for three years! Huge mistake).   I know if I DO go back, these present loans will be deferred, right? I can’t handle more loans, I’m already 80K+ in debt. I know as a “adult student” being over 24 now there are options out there to go to school for pretty much nothing….where are these options? How do I get my hands on them? I’ve been looking at fastweb schloarships as well as other scholarship websites too.

I’ve had no luck whatsoever in the job market, so I may as well pursue my dreams and make something of myself: to become a drama therapist. What the hell, why not? I’m too smart for that, and have too much to offer. I seriously think I could make a difference in lives as a drama therapist, particularly focusing on children.

While I was in college, I never really had a go-to professor that was consistent that would guide me in this process. I had two I was close to (one at TRCC and another at ECSU), either of which I really speak with now.  Ovbiously, this time going around with school would be entirely different-before I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with my life, other than the one thing I loved: Theatre. The career options and opportunities are few and far between in the field. I also wanted to help people. This, Drama therapy, is a way to combine my two ideas.

I get annoyed when people call Grace Kelly a bad actress. Just because someone doesn’t chew the scenery, that doesn’t make her a bad actress.

The stars are ageless » Katharine Hepburn

“We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers - but never blame yourself. It’s never your fault. But it’s always your fault, because if you wanted to change you’re the one who has got to change.”
