I did something exciting this weekend.
My super-senior year at college, I received an odd scholarship. This scholarship gave me some free money (awesome!), but only so long as I also took a loan for the equivalent amount (huh?). Since free money is one of my favorite things, I accepted the scholarship with all of the loan inducing caveats.
This weekend, I paid off my first and only student loan.
Signing the check and putting it into the mailbox felt good. All of a sudden, I am a Productive Adult who Pays Her Debts to Society.
The high lasted until I looked at the principal left on my computer, car, photographer, and wedding ring loans.
At least I can look forward to many such exciting moments in my future.
