See ya Sallie Mae!

I've decided that I am going to pay off my student loan this year. All $10,000ish of it.

It's a lofty goal but if Friendster Guy continues to accept sexual favors in lieu of rent* I should be all set.

I've already applied my tax return to the principle bringing me down closer to $9,000. Since I now get such amazing things as commissions and bonuses in addition to my base salary, I'm going to apply that "extra" money to my loan payments. It's not enough to cover the $900 plus per month I need to pay but I'm feeling ambitious. As long as my car doesn't crap out and FG doesn't mind eating Ramen noodles 2 meals a day, I think it's doable.

* Just kidding. That would be prostitution and that's illegal. Not that I wouldn't be up for it. In fact, I've offered FG just that deal but he's too law abiding to accept. Why couldn't I find a nice morally bankrupt boyfriend? Sigh...

SP, if more people did that, we'd be in much better shape as a nation. Pay back your loans, get debt-free. All kinds of freedom follows from that.

jt - I thought you were talking about the pay for sex model... not loan payback. LOLZ.

JT, we would be better off as a nation if we didn't HAVE to take out huge loans for education -- our own, and our children's -- in the first place. That's bullshit.
