El Loani Studenten

Since it seems almost unanimous that interest rates are going to rise the next time the Feds get together I decided to re-consolidate my student loans at a fixed rate instead of the variable it is currently running on. Boring stuff.

The upside of this is that my payments will be half of what they are currently, and though I still plan on paying more than even my current payments, the smaller bill will give me a bit more flexibility in my spending. So I’ll get that credit card paid off finally and be able to fork out cash to take classes to get my teacher’s license. So I’m pretty sure this is a good move on my part. I seem to have figured out all the little quirks that might end up shafting me, and have prepared for them.

And now, since I’ve given a futon away I can continue my search for a dinner table. I feel somewhat lame in the fact that these things are exciting to me. Maturity is lame I suppose. If I’m mature. I dunno, I’m going to drink some wine with a friend tonight and we’re going to engage in drunken college-esque theorhetical explications. In theory. We might just end up eating spaghetti and watching PCU.

  1. Hey jmay, thanks, but transport and all that would probably make it cheaper to just pick one up around here. I kind of want to get a soda shop type table with high stools…

  2. Currently sitting in my garage is a diner table–the chrome-legged, formica-y top (muted turquoise) (though it doesn’t accomodate high stools). I rescued it even though I already have two tables similar to it. It needs a good home.

  3. she’s got legggggsssss, she knows how to use them. but, i have a pedestal table of the same sort with a gray/white top if that’s more your bag. i would swap and keep the turquoise table ‘cuz it’s cute.

  4. I am suspicious of your kindness. I suppose it can’t hurt to at least take a look though. Be warned that I will defend myself by screaming like a little girl and running away flapping my hands if you so much as think about killing me.

  5. you got me. I frequently lure unsuspecting people to my home by offers of free furniture. The last one (may he rest in peace) thought he was getting a nice armoire. (muhuhaaa.)

    but seriously, I’m just always happy to find homes for stuff. I don’t like to see useful stuff thrown away (even if I can’t use it). And, no, my house is not an abscess of unused crap. (but anyone need blond, retro-y tiered end tables? I got those to give away, too.)

    you can email me if you want to see the tables lest we waste precious thread space. 🙂

  6. Lauren might want those end tables. She recently purchased a blonde corner hutch thinger. If you want to direct me to pictures of the tables or send ’em to me in an email that would be most excellent.

  7. Loan consolidation can be a bitch. The best thing for me is pay about 1/3 of what I was but I doubled the payoff time. Which means that I’m only saving a small amount of money over the entire life of the loan, but the reduced payments make a big difference. I think I might have a table for you realy cheap (free). I have to talk with the mrs., but my parents table replace our old one and the small table that we used to have is sitting unused in our kitchen.
