So I got my letter in the post threatening me to update the student loans company on my job and financial situation now. The letter has made it really hit home that the money I was spending at uni, and funded my uni education wasn’t free. Oh the pain! I bet you I wouldn’t have complained so much about my 9 o’clock lectures and handing in the assignments had I placed more value on the money being spent on the education I was receiving. Sad for me. Things are so much clearer in retrospect.
Any way what’s been done has been done and I now owe thousands and am more keen than ever to ensure that I have not wasted 3 years of my life, and more money than I have ever had in my bank account at any one time – probably in my life actually. So as I draw up my plans for my pay cheques in order to clear this debt as quickly as possible, I am happy that I didn’t max out credit cards and indulge in too many ridiculous purchases. At the moment I am in manageable debt but it is also clear to me that I need to watch every penny I spend and make it count. Every pound I spend is a seed and I am carefully watching where I am planting.
