I did something quite brave this evening: I visited the National Student Loan Data System website and painstakingly entered my information to determine the total sum of my student loans. The findings? I owe $158,603. Ahem.
Even though the Steve Martin character in Shopgirl ended up being a real ass, I now have fantasies of working at the glove counter at Saks and having a wealthy older man objectify me and pay off my student loans while I twirl around in cute dresses (and glasses!) and drive a beat-up mini pickup truck (or, actually, I’d prefer a 1983 Volvo station wagon).
