Your finances in 140 characters

Alright y’all, this will hopefully be my last day being a lame blogger, but when Girl Ninja flies 4,000 miles to come see me the last thing she wants to hear about is Punch Debt In The Face. So in the name of brevity I’m keeping things simple. As in 140 characters simple.

If you don’t have a Twitter account then you can’t follow me on twitter. And if you aren’t following me on twitter, you’re either super lame or a pedophile.

The thing that makes Twitter so interesting is you have to communicate an entire thought using no more than 140 characters. Sometimes this is easy, for example, “My farts smell like burnt toast.” But other times it can be quite difficult. Let’s make things a little interesting and try and communicate our entire financial history via a 140 character (or less) sentence. Here’s mine….

$28,000 student loan debt. Punched Sallie Mae in the face. Now just trying to be Less stupid with money. Oh and I hate cats.

See that was easy wasn’t it!!! Alright I have to get off this iPad before Girl Ninja starts beating me (she’s been known to be abusive :)).



  1. New commenter!

    “$20,000 student loan debt. $13,000 car debt. $4,000 credit card debt. Punched it all in the face. Now I rule the world.”

  2. Making thousands in the stock market instead of saving hundreds by paying off student loans. #woot

    • $28,000 x 7% interest rate on loans = $1,960/yr in interest. I saved quite a bit more than “hundreds” by paying those suckers off, and GUARANTEED a rate of return of 7%, which in my opinion aint a bad investment.

  3. $65,000 in debt busted. $4,000 left to go. Uncle Sam, send me my check! Two adoption loans paid off. Saving for #3

  4. Went from $30,000 in debt to about $17500 in a year and a half, and now working to get rid of the rest!

  5. Paid off $29K student loan. Working FT, studying Masters PT while living at home to help parents pay off their mortgage & take care of them.

  6. $700 Student Loan from 16K, unemployed hoping to pay off 12K debt by 35th birthday in Dec. I believe it can be done!! once I get a job.

  7. $10k credit card debt. $1k medical debt. $6k federal school loan debt (brand new). May take Sallie Mae debt so I can take double course load. Working full-time, learning/trying to budget.

  8. Debt adverse so zero debt. DINKS. Modest incomes, spending less than we earn. Paid off small home quickly. Burned in the dot com boom, avoided housing bubble, sitting on a war chest now 🙂

  9. $62,000 in debt. Finally over it and paying it down. I can make better financial choices if I try – just have to stop spending stupidly.

  10. Made 60% ROI in precious metals since 2008, no car note, almost no cc debt and now focusing on mortgage!
