I just got great news! My student loans were finally forgiven! After 8 years of working on it, and 5 years of jumping through hoops, my loans are no longer a problem. I AM SO EXCITED! It was quite the process to go through the loan forgiveness program (teaching for 5 years in certain types of schools, paperwork, waiting, nail biting...etc.)
There, I feel better having shared that with all of you!
