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.
