The last portion of my final student loan was disbursed last week. That means that my debt level has increased again (although I have more funds in the tuition fund at my school to offset that debt). As reimbursements come in from my company, the debt should decreasing again — as long as I can afford to apply those reimbursements to the student loans.
Speaking of education, don’t forget the deadline for consolidating student loans is at the end of this month.
The good news is that my level of debt now is likely the highest I’ll ever have (except for a hypothetical mortgage for a house at some point).
Some bad news now that I’ll throw in at the bottom of this unrelated post. My girlfriend and I will not be sharing an apartment. Now I’ll have to decide if it is worth it to move closer to my job (less of a commute but higher rent) or stay where I am (loud neighbors, overpriced apartment).
