By the end of the year, my student loan balance is going to be under $10K. For the debt-averse or paid-up this might not sound like a particularly exciting figure, but I think it is kind of magical to go from FIVE digits of indebtedness down to FOUR. I also think it's kind of magical to have paid off almost $5K just this year.
This shizz is going to be paid for, finally, two years from now--unless I get some oddball money lumps before then, in which case it'll be paid for sooner. Booya, I say. Booya.
