Holly @ Club Thrifty recently interviewed me about my student loans for an article she was writing over at Get Rich Slowly. Check it out! Student loans: Lessons learned, choosing a major, and overcoming regrets.
The comments are a mixed bag. There will always be people who assume that just because I have student loans (and someone wrote about my story in an article) that I don’t take responsibility for my loans. I may have been ignorant while I was a student but I now have a full grasp on my debt and accept my mistakes daily. I’ll be paying my debts for many many years, several times over. I try to help people make financially smart decisions to avoid a similar fate. If that’s not taking responsibility, then I don’t know what is! Unless someone wants to build me a time machine, this is my reality. It may be a financial nightmare, but I’m doing whatever I can to turn it into my dream.
