V is for Victory: I'm DEBT FREE!!!

[I originally tired to POST this Monday 8/6/07 - but it wouldn't post correctly, here's a 2nd try]

I officially determined my debt is paid off yesterday. I'm in kind of a good mood. I thought I'd add some mood music:



If You've never seen V for Vendetta - don't hit play. If you have, in this scene I play 'Evie'-short hair and all - while the credit card companies/God play "V"





This scene, the 'God is in the rain' scene, I think makes a similar analogy of what I've gone through over the last several years. I've been trapped and lived a tortured life pretty much of my own making. At any time I could have given up all hope but a little over a year ago I made a decision that I needed to be free from this debt if it was the last thing I did. Now, as I've accomplished this goal I realize this experience, being in debt, was a necessary life lesson that I won't soon forget. This lesson from the school of hard knocks has also allowed me to appreciate the benefits of saving much more than I did beforehand and hopefully, with some willpower I'll be able to realize the benefits of budgeting as well.

Thanks! I have to admit I feel a little bit lazy on the posting lately. Hopefully, once I finally have only my 1st job to go to I'll have more time to devote to this and other ventures.

Thanks again!
