Student Loans

Clearing out my paperwork this morning, I discovered that I finished paying off my student loans this month! Yey!
I finished my first degree in 1996, and elected to begin paying off these loans sometime after coming back to the UK and starting work as a post-doc. I remember not earning enough to *have to* pay them off, but started anyway. I guess that was 5 years ago. Coo, I’ve done a hell of a lot in 5 years. It doesn’t feel that long ago, and yet it seems a world away from where I am today.
I should finish paying off the debts from my PhD this year too.
