Student Loans


Hey everyone, it’s the last Friday in June in the year 2020… and I haven’t posted since Mother’s Day – May 10, 2020. First of all, please accept my sincere apology. Life during the COVID-19 pandemic has really changed my schedule and how I do things. Previously, I used to be able to get my blog posts written in the mornings before my work shifts. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic, I needed to try to […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. I haven’t really been posting much lately since there really isn’t too much that I think is more important than staying inside the house and social distancing as much as possible. However, I wanted to do a short post about “Emergency Fund 2020“. Emergency Fund 2020 In the last year or so, I’ve built up my emergency fund to what I think is a comfortable level. As such, I’ve […]

However, it just recently passed through both Congress and the Senate, and Trump signed it into law this week.

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. Today is going to be a fun post about “Predicting the Future”. Predicting the Future? Yea, let’s pretend it’s been 15 years. So it’s 2034. So what’s 2034 like? 2034 means my daughter Kylie is 21 years old and will be starting her senior year in college. Where that is I’m not really sure. My current guess is that she leaves Hawaii and goes to college on the mainland […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. I was going to write about “What have you done for yourself lately” but instead I decided to save that for another time.

Just to catch you […]
