Last week was my birthday. My Grandma and parents were very generous and gave me $1050. There were so many fun things I wanted to buy-- a baby carrier, a nice gps/running/fitness watch, new clothes.. a plane ticket to Hawaii, etc etc. So you can imagine my sorrow when I deposited the money into my bank account to be applied to my student loans.
Feels good to have half of my undergrad loan paid off now though!
