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.
