    I've been seriously considering exotic dancing for about a year now, mainly because I want to get a leg up on my finances and be able to go to college. I'm stuck in a financial rut right now and I feel that I just simply can't make enough money to live on my own and attend school...

    By Choice

    I danced for 3 years and it was the first time I did one job consistently (at the time).  I loved the freedom to work on the days I wanted to or not work at all.  And I wasn't the girl who was paying her way through college or suffering some sort of hardship.  I...
