Dear GYA, Graduating college was a pretty big achievement in my life, sure. But nothing fills my soul with a sense of real purpose and accomplishment more than my monthly arguments with my student-loan officer. I look forward to these chats because whenever she reminds me that my student loans will haunt me for as long as I live, I laugh and remind her that I will happily perish in a horrible helicopter explosion before paying her single cent. Anything happening extravagantly this weekend, since I stopped paying my student loans? - Miranda Stegals, University of Utah, Class of 2006
