Bledsoe, currently making just above minimum wage, says he has received financial help from his parents to help pay off student loans. He is now mulling whether to go to graduate school, seeing few other options to advance his career. "There is not much out there, it seems," he said.
Here's a thought, Mr. Bledsoe...rather than blow another $75,000 on a graduate degree, when you're "not even sure what you're looking for..." is throwing good money after bad. If you want to get out from under that undergrad debt, go to a community college and pick up a trade or license as a plumber or electrician. Then, you'll be able to use your creative writing degree to draft up proposals and bids for jobs.

"I don't even know what I'm looking for," says Michael Bledsoe, who described months of fruitless job searches as he served customers at a Seattle coffeehouse. The 23-year-old graduated in 2010 with a creative writing degree.
One can get a degree in creative writing? Wow, talk about money down the crapper. I'll have a non-fat latte please.

Excellent suggestion with zero chance of implementation.
Your plan would make sense to him if, instead of going to college, he had worked in any job for a couple of years.
College delays maturity.
