A good surprise came in the weekend mail.
It was a letter informing me that my student loans are now paid in full. Money has been automatically, but not imperceptibly, deducted from my account for more than a decade to pay for the B.S. in Journalism I went back to school and worked up to four jobs at a time to earn. (It was worth it, by the way.)
Wow! We should squeeze in a celebration somehow. I feel like I’ve finally graduated into adulthood. (Maybe just in time for a midlife crisis.)
Any recommendations for how to celebrate on the quick and cheap?
