Month: March 2012

Running the Race

As many of you know, I will hopefully be entering the convent in August 2013.  Before then, I need to pay off my student loans, which accumulate to about $25,000.  I figured out that I need to raise about $1,600 per month from now until then to be able to pay them off.  I’ll be…
