No more Student Loan!

Yesterday I had $20,000 remaining to pay on my student loan.

Today I have no student loan.

It's like giving myself a $500/month raise!

I don't know whether to thank ATVI for laying me off or Multiverse for contracting me... either way I would not have been able to pay my loan off this soon if recent events had not gone as they did. I'm glad I could use the pain and frustration of losing my job and searching for a new one to my advantage somehow.

I feel better knowing Uncle Sam isn't breathing down my neck any more.

Yay yay yay!!!!

So are you saying you paid $20K off in one day???? Wow!!

Isn't it amazing how sometimes layoffs are a blessing in disguise? We paid off the rest of our credit card debt when EA gave Brian the slip. Fabulous!

Yeah - it was a little sad to watch our savings account go down by such a large number... but I DO like not being under pressure now.
