Student Loan UpdatesPosted: April 24, 2012
I have a love for checking out shows and cartoons from when I was younger and absolutely in love with them. Just recently I was watching Darkwing Duck and managed to come across the episode where Morgana McCawber is robbing the city of all their wealth in order to pay for student loans. I never caught the reference when I was younger and I know that I watched that show so many times-whether it was a rerun or not.
I just thought I would share that tidbit with you—fascinating, huh? Even back then student loans were high.
Speaking of student loans, I’ve not made my “first” payment towards that one student loan. Technically it was my second, but I split the first payment up into two different times. From now on, I have to have the money on the card by the 25th. After 8 months (and 8 more payments) this loan will then be in good standing again and I can try to negotiate a lower payment on it. Ugh, that seems like 8 very long months away. But I’m thinking it will fly by or at least I’m hoping for it.
The first student loan, that I’ve been making faithful payments every month to bring into good status, should be coming into good status relatively soon. Hopefully, I will then be making some progress on it. As it stands right now, I’m not really—I pay the money but it doesn’t seem to be doing any good.
And as for the guy’s student loans—that number over to the right feels like it isn’t moving at all. Oh wait, I know that I forgot to update it after that first time. Okay, now it’s updated….and it still hasn’t moved. Seriously, going to take a long time to get that number to feel like it’s moving. I know that it’s because we aren’t able to put as much towards it as I would like but I’m hoping to change that soon. What’s changing? Well, we won’t have to save for a baby shower much longer so that money will be being split between Christmas (yup going to start saving now) and debt. And probably e-fund because I would really like that to be higher as we just recently had a car scare.
So there you have it—my updated status on our student loan’s and my new plans for the “extra” money we will soon be having. Have you started to save for Christmas?
