My Debt Roundup - February 2010
I started my journey to pay off my debt more than eight months ago. I paid off merely $4, 313. Getting rid of debt is more difficult than I thought. I took on roommate, virtually stopped eating out, haven't bought anything new or old, sold unnecessary items, got a part time gig. Still I am - 23, 306 in debt. Often, I feel like giving up paying off my debt. How long can I hang on edge like this? Maybe I should accept that I need debt to survive. Yet, some part of me just can't give up. Not giving up on my grad school got me a doctoral degree, while not being able to give up also made me vulnerable during relationship breakup. I hope my "not giving up" nature will help me and let me prevail through these tough times.
