Has it been that long?

August 9th, 2006 at 12:44 pm

Ok.. I know I haven't posted here since May, but I really have been busy. :-) School is out for two weeks, so I have a little break before I begin my last semester... YEAH! Lately I've been so excited about finally graduating, getting that little expensive piece of paper called a degree.
But then I feel upset, because I've realized that that small piece of paper now comes with a very big bill. Oh I know its nothing compared to those bills from Harvard, but none the less its huge to me.
See, over the past couple of years we've been able to pay off all the credit cards, save six months salary for a emergency fund, paid off the vehicles (even the 2005), and leaving us only with our mortgage. Now once I finish school I'll be hit with an new payment... so it's only $289 a month, but it's for 300 months! Yeah yeah... I know we'll be paying it off ahead of time..saving a boat load of interest, but the thought of it is scary! It's like a mini mortgage on its own! Ok...I regress. I've very proud of my degree, and I've already been hit with a couple of job prospects. Right now I'm very confident we'll be able to "knock this baby out" in no time, even if I have to take most of my first years salary to do it. Who knows...maybe I'll land that dream job! As of now any job is better than no job...right? :-)
