Obligation satisfied, indeed!! Pretty pleased that I’ve officially paid off one loan in full, and in 1.5 years instead of 10. That’s a lot of interest I won’t have to pay. Slowly but surely, my scrimping and saving is working. Now it’s on to the hefty loans, but Navient is the servicer for those four, so I won’t ever have to log back into my ACS account — unless I need to look at that beautiful phrase again to feel motivated and reminded that this is completely do-able. 🙂 “This” being paying off my loans in less than 10 years, that is. The thought of committing to a specific accelerated time frame makes me a little nervous, but having an explicit goal in mind will also keep me on track. Time to crunch some numbers and renew my dedication to getting these loans off my back sooner rather than later!
