    I have no sympathy for people who choose to go to expensive private schools they need loans to attend. She got herself into the mess, she can deal with the consequences. Why should she get bailed out?

    I have an iPhone 13 and an older (2015) MacBook Air, as well as an Apple Watch. I like how they seamlessly work together. I hate Android. Had it in the past. Never again.
