Groupies-- The New In Thing

As each new day approaches I'm being reminded that it is still a recession and jobs are still hard to come by. I'm continuing to apply to as many jobs as I can while thinking of other options. The other options that are being presented to me all involve giving up my dream for the moment. There are people telling me to go to grad school (which I'm tired of school), people telling me to teach, and people telling me to go into a totally different field (such as banking). Then there's that phrase that keeps popping up over and over again.

It's becoming a groupie (also known as a gold digger). 

While being a groupie has been around since the beginning of time, it became popularized this year with the show "Basketball Wives." The majority of these "wives" were never even married to the basketball players that they had relationships with at one point in time, but they were still rich. None of them were hurting for money. However, although they were living their lives lavishly off of basketball players they once claimed they loved, they were always quick to call other women groupies. They despised groupies because the groupies were the ones their men were cheating on them with. 

However, unlike women with college degrees who are having to settle for low paying jobs, such as a McDonalds employee or a starbucks employee, groupies aren't worrying about money. Groupies are getting the same treatment as wives, sometimes even better treatment. They are getting a roof over their heads, food to eat, money to buy only the latest styles out, and lots of publicity. In fact, the public is making them even richer. If you don't believe me ask Katstacks how much richer she has gotten in the last few months. 

Groupies are living the best lives and they are not even worrying about what a college degree is going to do for them. In fact groupies are the new "in" thing. I think I'm about to jump on the bandwagon and become one before being a groupie goes out of style.
