Have to brag on myself...sorry

Had some good fortune recently and paid down $45,000.00 of student loan debt.  My daily capitalized interest went from about eight dollars to $2.50.  I will now have my last student loan paid off at the end of this year (7.5 years after graduation).  I graduated with about 80k in 2006.  At that point, I will only have my mortgage left at age 33.  I can't wait.


Thanks for all the advice and support around here.  You guys are the best!

Whoa. You're officially one of my heroes. Congrats, and keep spreading the good news to everyone you know. Some of us don't know we need to hear this kind of positive info. It could really bring some possibilities to the forefront.
