I’m completely new to blogging (I started debtstoriches.com last month) and to Rockstar Finance. I’ve been connecting with the #debtfreecommunity on Instagram for the last few months for motivation and mutual support while I pay off $130,000 of student loan debt! That’s been a great resource for me, and I figured I’d step it up a bit!
Looking forward to meeting you.
Welcome Veronika! You’ve landed in a good place here. That’s quite a bit of SL debt. I’ve no experience with that but many here do so I’m sure you’ll find some motivation and help here when you need it.
Thanks Amy! I’m at $103,000 right now so I’m getting there… a few more years to go! Being surrounded by so many awesome people working towards the same goal really helps. Thanks for the warm welcome!
Welcome! Like @AmyB said, you are in good company here. It is all about improving that net worth # year after year and it sounds like you’ve done well chipping away at that SL debt already!
Hey, I just tweeted your post! You should get on Twitter!
Thanks for the tweet (and the nudge)! I definitely should… I’m a bit of a late adopter when it comes to Twitter.
I am now your 3rd twitter follower!
Nice! I’m your 651st!
Welcome! I look forward to following your journey. I’m currently racking up student loans and am doing my best to minimize them. Paying them off must be exciting.
Hi Veronika - welcome to the community! You will learn a lot here.
Thanks for following along! Minimizing them while in school is key, I wish I would have been better about that myself! It is very exciting making progress, can’t wait to pay them off!
Thanks! Glad to be here.
I’m your 20th Twitter follower! Look at that amazing growth, all since you’ve joined this fun little Forum! Welcome to the nuthouse.
Welcome, welcome! I love meeting new folks. This forum is fantastic.
Welcome! We can do ANYTHING we set our minds to! Crush that debt!
Welcome to the addiction, @debtstoriches.
Welcome to the forum, @debtstoriches! $130k is crazy - have you heard of Liz at LessDebtMoreWine.com? She blogs about paying off crazy student loan debt too! I blog about it, but mine’s only ~80k, which is crazy, but at least not over 100k
No, I haven’t! I’ll check it out, and yours too!
It will only be over $100K for a few more weeks!!! I’ve almost paid $30K in less than 2 years, $20K this year so far.
Wow that will be some feat, and something to be proud of!
