Yeah between that and school I was out of the house literally every day of the week (including saturday and sunday). My debt started at like 48k and the last I checked I got it down to about 15k.
Haha yeah I actually found a offer for a fulltime job doing that. They were paying like 50k a year too. The company I'm working with now is a marketing place so I'll probably be doing so print work for them (they're office is actually located inside of a print company lol).
Yeah I worked 35 hours a week for my first year and a half and I only took out half of my loans (which is still pretty good I guess).
Since I'm only graduating with my associates my plan is to work freelance jobs and study on my own on the side. Once I've built up a decent portfolio then I'll go for a full time so I can be paid more ;D
