William The Coroner’s Forensic Files

Finally!

Filed under: Life, the universe, & everything. — williamthecoroner @ 19:12

I just recently got confirmation that I had paid off a load of student debt. There is quite a feeling of relief. I’m not totally out of the woods yet, but I’m very, very glad–it was certainly a worthwhile investment, but it took YEARS–and professional school may take years more–but it was worth it.

I do find it amusing, that my school, whom I work for, hits me up for

  • alumni contributions,
  • my student loans, AND
  • An employee’s contribution to the annual fund.
  • United Way
  • A day of Service to the community

Yeah.  I keep thinking we should work out some sort of barter system here, but it never transpires.  I don’t mind paying the loans–that was part of the deal after all. The other funds, I give to my undergraduate alma mater, and pay for scholarships, so some other poor schlub can go to college. For the rest, I think keeping my work life and home life separate is a very good idea.

  1. Love me that GI Bill; I was the only American student in my class who graduated debt-free. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. American Taxpayer.
