My student loans are paid in full!!! Yesterday, I made my last student loan payment so today, my birthday, I could have the gift of seeing a $0 balance. This was the best birthday gift I could’ve gotten myself and I couldn’t be happier.
I started repaying my student loans in April 2014 (didn’t officially go into repayment status until May) and I was so overwhelmed with just over $30,000 in debt. Two years later, here I am. Smile on my face. A year older. A little bit wiser. And feeling a lot more free.
This isn’t my usual informative post, but just something I want to share with everyone. If you are currently paying student loans, don’t let them get you down. There is an end to it and reaching that finish line is an amazing feeling that no one can take away from you.
I hope you all have a wonderful day. I will be thinking about what I want to do for my non-birthday-celebration-of-paying-off-my-student-loans because everyone deserves to celebrate being debt free.
