if she could use some advice about IR/National Security/etc related stuff from a recent graduate, please DM me. I’ll shoot you a DM with some starters for now.
Received and appreciated Rudolpho.
:bow: :fuckyeah:

I had to learn most of these first hand, so I assume there is a bit of redundancy. My parents never went to college and never went to school in the U.S. in general, so I had to learn a lot about how the "system" is as I went along.

As of today, exactly seven years, two months, and 12 days after graduation, I am officially finished paying off my student loans. I just submitted my final payment of $1,964. It's been a really big pain in my ass but I paid back about $40,000. Thank God my tuba scholarship paid for most of college because that was bad enough.

I am now (other than my monthly CC balance) 100% debt free. Paid off car, student loans, and all other debts.

Feels good man.

Given my driving situation as of right now, roughly 2.5 years. About 3 years and 10 months and almost clocked at 65k

We've still got $100k or so on the :haus: and probably will end up owing significantly more on the next :haus: - I kind of miss my old townhouse lyfe with no debt and no responsibilities.

Couldn’t agree more. It’s just a genuinely good car as a viable only car for an enthusiast, great for road trips, super easy to park in DC. When I move onto something else, i’ll definitely miss it. I can see why :plac: went back to a GTI.

Most likely thinking about moving onto a 5.0h or a wrx when the time comes

I actually remember viewing this back when I graduated... Sallie sold my loans a few years back :doe: , final payment was to Navient.

It's funny though, I still haven't yet matched my income right after graduation. I worked a 9-6 job at Miami Beach for $15/hour then would go work at night clubs/weddings in the evenings making $30-60/hour as a sound mixer. Working 14 hours/day most days sucked but I paid $10k off of my loans in the first six months. It was slow going ever since.

I paid back Nelnet 2 years ago. It took my ~4.5 year to pay back $11k borrowed. So :impressive: on your part man!

My wife's business has reached the sustainable benchmark today. She is averaging over 15 appointments per week now. That puts her making more money than the job she left to start private practice. And she has reached each goal for business relatively quickly as she continues to grow.

very :notbad: overall.

I probably wouldn’t complain working at clubs for sound mixing for a short gig. But that may get old fairly quickly. That was a great start
