Ok. I just finished my federal Stafford Loan Exit Interview. Their budget calculator estimates my annual discretionary income will be $-14,000.
I'll be paying either $178/mo for 30 years or $308/mo for 10 years. For a job that pays $30,000.
I also found out that those programs that help teachers repay student loans only apply to Perkins loans, and not Stafford Loans.
So, all that whining about feeing bad about not getting to make music. Forget that happened.
This is the worst feeling in the whole world.
I've got to leave teaching, because I can't afford to do it.
