You know what I was planning on posting about today? A fun fashion spread all about going on "photographic style safaris" --stalking your prey in high end department stores with photo lens at the ready and then using your pictorial trophies to help you bag those looks at lower prices. But I can't do that tonight, for I am just too flummoxed as to how I will ever pay off my student loan debt. I will soon enter repayment after an all-too-brief respite and the clock is ticking down.
It's the middle of the night, Shoestringers and just plain Strungouters, and I'm up. A "nuit blanche" the French call it --a white night. Too many of my nuits are blanche these days. So, here it is, a little piece of artwork I've thrown together to tell my Student Loan Story. Growing up, we are taught to not discuss money, and especially not to disclose our money problems. But I'm doing just that because I know I'm not the only one who is up right now and I just don't care anymore who knows:
As of tonight, my debt is $55,509.92 and counting...but not counting accrued interest!
