In which former Senator Alan Simpson, R-Wyo., dances Gangnam Style. The reason? He wants young people to become involved in a discussion about cutting the national debt. Does this video inspire you to become involved?

Guys. I want to talk to someone with student debt.

I’m working on a story about student debt and need to talk to someone who has a lot of it. Do you have nightmares about how much you owe in debt or have had to tell your significant other the amount owed in case it’s a deal breaker? Let’s chat. I want to tell your side of the story.

If you would like to share your story, please email me at bmcclane at nationaljournal dot com. 

Subject Search: Student Debt & Stress

Hello fellow Tumblrs!

I (your curator) am writing a story about student debt. I’m looking into the psychological effects of having student debt after graduation.

So if you are either recently graduated or graduated within the past two years, send me a message. Tell me how your student debt has affected your life, affected life decisions, made you move back in with your parents, etc. Whether you are employed or not, paying your loans or unable to, let’s chat! I know student debt is an important subject to most Tumblr’ers out there so what better place to ask?

Tell me your story so that I can share it with others. Either leave a reply or send a message.
