If someone would have told me that I would be paying $1,200.00 per month in student loan debt 15 years after graduating from a top tier law school, I would have told them, "Go suck a lemon and leave the crack alone." Well, here I am 15 years later paying $1,200.00 per month in student loan payments.
In fact, I paid over $11,000.00 in student loan interest last year and could not write the interest off on my taxes. Why??? Because I made too much money according to the tax code.
So at the suggestion of a close friend, I have started this blog as a forum to vent my frustration about being a slave to student loan debt. It depresses me each time I make an online payment to one creditor and write a check to the attorney representing my other creditor.
I know. I know. I should be grateful that I have the money to pay my monthly payments. I am grateful. Really I am. But if I had one wish (beside being healthy for the rest of my life with greater discernment skills) it would be to payoff all my debts by December 31, 2008.
