I decided to look at my loan accounts today...I realized that I will have $75,000 to pay back once I graduate this Spring. It's not like I'm freaking out, but it certainly twists a knot in the pit of my stomach. Even though I have all these plans to consolidate them under a more reputable, easy to communicate with credit union, apply for income-based payment plans, and starting out with a less-than-decent-but-still-okay salary right out of school, I still think about how this is going to affect me for the next 20 or so years. Sometimes I wonder if it's this kinda stuff that makes me wanna forget about everything and diaper up.
I was wondering, those of you who took out loans for college, how do you with the stress? Is it really all that bad once you graduate and start having to pay back those loans? I guess I just need reassurance that life will go on and everything will be okay. Thanks for reading! :)
