Great news! I will have paid off my student loans from graduate school in the year 2028. That may seem like a lifetime but really it is only 21+ years away. Just the prospect of having an end-date is thrilling. I think I began paying in 1998.
Some may think that I am being sarcastic but I’m not. It is something to look forward to, a reason to buy an expensive bottle of Champaign…and put it someplace special for 21 years and try not to forget where that special place is. Maybe I have to create some secret clues and maps for myself. Or, perhaps I can put a reminder on my yahoo calendar to be emailed fifteen minutes before the special event. Please do mark your calendars as well.
