Happy Friday?

I hate to say this, but I still have a little case of the Sad Bens...

and that's even more depressing because today is a big day.


I just PAID OFF one of my student loans!!


Now just to get through 8 more hours at work then I'm off home to partaaay!


  1. WOOOOOHOOOOOOO!!! Rock it girl!!!! Congrats!!! What an amazing feeling. You should feel proud!! :)

  2. Thanks ladies! I am totally starting to feel the high!!

  3. Congratulations and keep it up! It's all about the baby steps.

  4. Amazing!!! Congratulations to you! Keep on truckin'!

  5. I just read your debt blues post, and then this one.

    I assume you'll snowball the payments you used to make into another one of your loans. When you do that, I swear, you'll notice the payments drop really quickly.

    I, too, had a student loan with a variable interest rate, so I do know how stressful it can be. And mine wouldn't apply anything extra to principal, only to interest first. If only I had paid more attention to the fine print. I read it all, but didn't notice that. At least there was no prepayment penalty.


    1. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!

      @Amanda Yes, I'm hoping to do the same thing. I was really frustrated when I learned about the interest only payments. I still have about $400 in unpaid interest to get through and then I really hope to start seeing some better results. Also, did your payments change as your balance changed? Or did they stay the same and just the percentage that went to interest/principal change?

      Thanks for the encouragement! :)
