Don’t you just love chronicles like this? I was suppose to construct this piece as an inspirational “you-can-do-it-too” story but the more I wrote about it, the more depressed I became. I didn’t want to lie so I scratched off that “you-can-do-it-too” spin. This is just how I (oh so effectively) paid off $20,000 in student loans working part-time. Spoiler: it was no Disneyland.
