Student Loan Sorrows

I have my BA and I'm pretty proud of it. I loved my school experience and I think I'm a better person for it. However, lately I've been wondering if it's worth it. I'm not working in my field and now it appears I took out student loans for nothing as I'm not using it in anyway.

At 18 years old, I knew nothing about finance. I didn't even fully realize what it meant to take out loans and to repay all of that money. Now I sit here and I'm pinching pennies and scrimping to make ends meet thanks to those stupid decisions almost ten years ago.

What about you? Did you take out student loans? Are you working in your field? Either way, was it worth it in your opinion? What would you have done differently?
