HORRAY FOR STUDENT LOANS!
On December 31, 1999, I wrote a check to pay off the last of my Stafford Loan. (I imagined my great great grandchildren asking how I celebrated the millenium, and me telling them how I paid off part of my brain, bought a blender, made a celebratory orange julis, and went to bed early!
Today (July 10, 2006) is equally historic because I just wrote a check to pay off the last of my William D. Ford Direct Loan! I celebrated with a piece of carmel coffee cake while watching Little House on the Prairie with my grandmother.
And, if all goes according to plan, the Perkins Loan will be paid by mid-2007, and I will be the proud owner of my undergraduate education (worth every penny!)
