In short, all I really want is to have my student loan debt paid in full. I don’t need a million dollars or anything else. I don’t have an incredibly sad, down-on-my-luck story, but I wanted to try here anyway. I reside in Seattle, and I’m a mom of two & I own a loving dog. I obtained a degree in Business Management & Administration back in August of 2017 from an online school program in San Diego. My husband and I are getting a divorce in a few months. A clean break; nothing ugly, thankfully.
I currently hold a well-enough paying job that keeps me above water, and we live in a small, two-bedroom apartment that I’m contented with for the time being. I don’t have a lot of debt (a couple of credit cards, an almost paid off car, and my student loans).
I figure in about five to seven years, if I budget everything accordingly, I’ll be able to pay off my student loans. However, I don’t want to spend those five to seven years as a ‘slave’ to this debt of roughly $56,000. I want to be able to have more liberty to do the things I enjoy, without the major financial restriction. I have plans for my family and myself. I knew what I was getting into, when I decided to go to school. This isn’t to knock educational institutions. There’s so much value in knowledge, but somewhere in the middle of my academics, it started to feel pointless, but I pushed myself to finish, because of some personal reasons.
So yeah; here I am. Any help or advice is welcome.
