Paying Off My Federal Student Loans Feels Soooooo Good!

I just got my official “you no longer owe us money” letter in the mail from the Federal Government.

I’m so happy I think I’ll frame it 🙂

What was once a $15,000 loan? Gone. That’s huge.

Now that I’ve dumped my federal student loans, my goal of becoming debt-free by the end of 2013 doesn’t seem so unrealistic anymore. I only have $3,388 left to pay off in private loans by the end of the year. Considering I started with over $30,000 almost 4 years ago exactly? Paying down few extra grand will be a piece of cake.

So in celebration of this monumental occasion, I leave you with all of the greatest student loan repayment memes the internet has to offer:

P.S. In one month exactly, I’ll be biking 200 miles from Seattle to Portland. That’s a terrifying thought… but then I remind myself that I just paid off $15,000 in loans. I’m feeling pretty unstoppable right now 🙂

      Not sure what I’ll do when I’ve paid off my private student loans… Probably treat myself to something nice, and then hoard away all of the money I would’ve been using to pay off my debt 🙂

    Good job girl!! I know how it feels to be crushed by the loans but like you I started with 36K in May of this year, and will be debt-free by Oct. of next year. It can be done and heres a toast to you and your hard work!
