Hey everyone! I know I don’t post much anymore, but I wanted to do a quick update today for anyone who still might be following along.
I paid off my student loans in full this week! This is immensely exciting as you will remember the total debt was once in 6 digits after a couple years of unemployment and deferring payments. There were many years when I was terrified about the amount of my debt and was worried about the effect it would have on my life going forward.
I am also pleased that I was able to pay off the rest of it on the eve of my 30th birthday. Now I am technically not a “thrifty 20-something” anymore, but I also have zero debt, so I am willing to make the trade.
For all of my readers out there that are still struggling with debt elimination and paying off their student loans, keep at it! Eventually, one day, you too will be debt free. And it feels wonderful once you’re finally there.
