Everything You Know About the Abolishments
Paying off Debt
Revised Milestones, 10/30/15:
Ok, I just paid off my credit card, which was a huge deal to me. So now I'm getting my ear pierced again to celebrate (well, soon, not right now.) and I thought I should update the ol' debt page while I'm at it! I've paid off everything listed in the previous entries, but for some of that I had to take out some hefty loans. Also, I note that in the past I never even considered putting my Student Load debt up here, because I didn't think I'd ever pay it off. But now it's going on the list as well--this entry will be comprehensive, listing all of my monetary debt at this stage.

In July of 2014 I took a $2,500 loan to pay for three things: my then-current credit card debt ($1,822), Byron's medical expenses ($278), and the rest of the money for my teeth (I got a new crown in January 2013, $1,477 in total, but I'd already paid most of it--I just needed the last $400). I'll call it the Toothdebt.

I'm also still paying off the $5,500 loan I took in 2012, which I think I can call New York City, basically. So:
  • Toothdebt: $1,588.94
  • New York City: $1,844.77
  • Student Loans: $4,524.93

  • For a total of $7,958.64
And, because it's traditional to talk about savings here, as well:
  • Save $2,500 for (half of the cost of the) wedding with Catherine!!
