Debt

Sunday, 16 March 2003

i re­ceived a no­tice in the mail the oth­er day ex­plain­ing to me just how much mon­ey i owe the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment for my Stafford loans. now i feel like a true adult, be­cause i have some­thing re­sem­bling adult size debt. dis­cussing this with re­al adults has led me to con­clude that debt on­ly grows, and nev­er re­al­ly de­creas­es. i will not let this hap­pen to me. i’m the type of per­son who will live off of mac&cheese un­til i get it paid off. i do not like be­ing be­hold­en to any­one.

$17125 is a lot of debt for some­one who on­ly makes $80 bucks every two weeks.
