Okay, okay, that description may be pushing it a bit. But seriously, I feel so lucky to have a job where I get to sew for money. I love seam-ripping open fancy prom dresses and figuring out how to change them and put them back together so they look like nothing ever happened. It's challenging but fascinating. The only downside (and this is a small one) is that I have to stop and work with real people occasionally; I guess that's just my secret introverted nature coming through, though.

Besides gushing about my new job, though, I had another topic to bring up. Do any of you guys have student loans taken out, or have you had to pay off student loans in the past? How long did it take you to pay them off? Any feelings/tips/tricks about making financial ends meet in college? It hadn't occurred to me until fairly recently how serious loans really are. I guess I never really thought too much about finances, or how to earn more money, because until going to college I didn't have a reason to. I've been reading up on a ton of financial blogs lately to try and get inspiration about saving, budgeting, and paying off loans, and I guess at the end of the day it just comes down to discipline. College is expensive.
