Almost a year ago exactly, we paid off me boat. Tonight, we eliminated another payment from our budget: me student loan. It’s been six years since I made th' decision t' leave Gardner-Webb without finishin' me undergraduate studies, so that’s quite a while t' be makin' payments fer a degree I don’t have, and if Sallie Mae had that comely wench way, I’d still be payin' fer many more years t' come.
Do I regret th' decision? Nah. Not havin' th' piece o' paper really hasn’t held me back from workin' me dream job. I may not have gotten a degree from GWU, but I do have an amazin' lady t' show fer it. Come t' think o' it, it were bein' a small price t' pay.
