debt

I’m on my way to the airport to go visit Girl Ninja in San Diego, which means I’ve got a guest post for ya today. I’ll be back and in action next week. Enjoy your weekend suckers. I know I will Hi, I’m Ed and I’d like to punch TWO people in the face with […]

I’m pretty impatient, this was especially true when it came time for me to work my way out from a $28,000 student loan bill. The only thing I wanted more than being debt free, was to be debt free NOW! My intense desire to get out of debt was the best and worst thing that […]
