All Growed Up

I feel as though I\’ve cut my last tie to immaturity.

That\’s right, this week marks the close of another chapter of my life. I finally paid off the last of my student loans. Obviously, this is of overall benefit to me. It\’s quite a bit like getting a significant pay raise, for one, since that money is now mine on a monthly basis instead of being earmarked for payment to a lending company. I suppose it will also help my credit score, not that I really had much of a problem in that arena.

It also means other things. I was on a ten year repayment plan, which means… wow, it\’s been ten years already. That\’s kind of a punch in the gut. It almost makes me feel old.

Still, I plan to celebrate tonight. Who wants to join me? 🙂

    Does this mean it’s time for grad school?

    Well I’d prefer to go to grad school *after* I figure out what I’d like to do… but hell, we’ll see.
