    Yes sometimes the smart thing to do is just to move on from financial mistakes. We all make them.

    You never know. It might help. Or the PSLF program just might get Republicaned. We'll see.

    But to be honest, I am not worth much in the labor market. So even if the program ceased to exist I would probably still do something like I am doing now. I feel in some ways like I am on a welfare-to-work program or on one of those programs they had during the great depression where the gubmint made a bunch of "make-work" so that people could afford a can of beans and a loaf of bread. lol

    Well, some beautiful art came out of those programs in the Depression, including the supercool murals in post offices, and beautiful stone lodges at national parks.
    So sometimes, beauty emerges out of difficult circumstances that look very unpromising.

    These people left the country to avoid their student loans.

    India is not somewhere I would want to live. Japan on the other hand would be fine.

    Not the reply I was expecting. I was expecting you to say, bagS? A minimalist only needs one.
