Student Loan Battle Begins...

New York Holidays

I make it a habit to wait until everyone is sleeping so I can read my mail in peace. I received a hefty envelope from school- telling me what I've already assessed- I will be a graduate at the end of this month. Since I hit hard times from having not been able to get financial aid for a few years, I took out loans. As I impatiently tore away at the envelope, I envisioned an al-pacino look-alike croney banging on my door shouting "I know you're in there.. you owe us 104.00 missy!!" Oh well.. serves me right to acquire the only debt that is unexcusable under ANY circumstances. It's okay though. A promise is a promise.

While I am technically on my way out of school, I haven't given thought to what i'll do workwise. ::SIGH:: This sucks. Each plan outlined in my paperwork seems outrageous because I'm looking at finishing the payoff sometime in 2045 or so, at which time I will probably be gumming through prunes and sippin' vegetable juice in hopes of keeping up with my budgeting practices. Hubby tells me not to worry and I can't help but laugh. Me?? Not worry? I'm like borderline "Monk" right about now. I worry about EVERYTHING.

This new bill on my horizon will cost me about 150/mth more. Oh well, at least I can claim it on my taxes?
