I am amazing: a look back

I found the notebook that I used for last year’s Financial Planning Days. Almost exactly a year ago, I had $28,000 in student loans. Now? It’s about $12,060. In one year, I have paid off almost $16,000 worth of student loans.

I Am Amazing: A look back at the past year!

That is amazing. Not to toot my own horn, but that is amazing. When I told my friend Ellie, she asked how I did it. Part of me is unsure. Maybe I robbed someone.

But I also know that I didn’t go out to lunch every day, I didn’t drop $50 at the bar and I didn’t shop retail for most of my clothes. But I also lived alone in a nice neighborhood, went to Israel and New York and mostly ate healthy food.

I hope to pay off the other $12,000 by next November. But even if I don’t, I know I’m pretty amazing.
