As of August 6th (when I get my final paycheck from the stadium), my school loan will be officially under $2,000. This is so exciting to me! I'll be getting $1,000 stipend when my teaching paychecks begin, and that's going straight to my school loan as well. So, I should have my loan paid off in no-time! It's so exciting! Gosh, it's only taken me nine years!
