Steve Stanzak had been sleeping in the basement at NYU for 8 months when school officials discovered his web log describing the experience. The student apparently had four jobs, a scholarship and was receiving no tuition help from his parents. The $15K scholarship would lower his tuition to around $16K a year but tack on the $7K to $17K a year for housing and he wasn’t able to make ends meet.
This story really proves how well our Universities are preparing our students for the real world. Steve’s major? Creative writing. Yep, prepare to work long hours, eat out of dumpsters and live in a cardboard box dude!

Wouldn’t it be cool if creative writing meant that we can write or draw in everthing we needed or wanted. Remember those old bugs bunny cartoons when at the end, it bugs himself writing and making things happen to Daffy, bad things yes, but you get the idea.
I want a house with a secret passage with a door that looks like it was drawn on the wall like the fake tunnels which inevitably contained a truck which runs over Willy E. Coyote. 🙂
hehehe Yeah, and then Wile E Coyote stammers to his feet and asks in a drunken manner "Did anyone get the name of that truck?" It wasn’t a Mack truck, it was an Acme truck. hehe
