Thanks for the positive comments everyone, I really appreciate it.
I got a new full time job that started on July 24th, and I have been working at my old full time job on Saturdays and Sundays. So I haven't had a day off in over 5 weeks and I won't have one until Labor Day, but with the extra $ coming in, I can pay things off quicker and put some money away for a rainy day.
Keep your heads up everyone, if I can do it, you can too!

that first large increase came when 5 of my student loans were rehabilitated (which made the 5 collection accounts from the guarantor disappear).
That second medium increase came from bringing my revolving utilization from 95% to 8%, (my FICOs went to 627 EQ and 622 TU then) and its now at <1% every month.
Since then I've only had small increases (627 to 638 EQ and 622 to 644 TU), but 4 years from today I will be celebrating a flawless report and I will be 100% debt free.
