This is so inspiring. I have about 23K in undergrad loans (4 separate loans), and luckily none of them have bonkers interest rates. I am saving aggressively, but I can't wait to fill the pit in and actually have my savings accumulate instead of disappear down a deep hole. This article helped me feel less alone, and that I'm on the right track--the sacrifice will be worth it one day! Thank you for sharing, Marnie!
