Finally! Goodbye to the 90’s, which became as worn out as a pair of (MC) Hammer pants. Woohoo! Welcome 80’s, although I don’t want to stay here as long as I stayed in the 90’s.
Current stats from my lender:
Term Remaining on Debtor’s Prison Sentence: 3 years and 5 months
Current (variable) Interest rate: 3.59% (up from original rate of 3.42%)
Pull out the cassette tapes! Here’s a random pic of the Doobie Brothers to take you back in time.
How can the Doobie Brothers do anything but put you in a good mood!
“What a Fool Believes…” I think that song was playing in the background while I was signing my
life away student loan documents…
Yes, interest rates are rising everywhere, including on the loan. I’m still in a very good place compared to my rates before I refinanced, so I’m not too concerned…yet. In any event, it’s good to reach a new milestone.
So yeah, hey, another one bites the dust! I may have to make this one of my anthem songs. Credit to Queen for creating one of the sickest bass lines of the 80’s. RIP Freddie.
Shout ‘back’ to a few new blogger friends. Stop by and say hello.

Alright peeps. Thanks for all the good comments. Keep ’em comin’. How are your debt and/or savings battles going?
