Debt Sucks

I started Debt Sucks back in August of 2007 for the purpose of holding myself publicly accountable for my spending and debt, while struggling to make progress in paying down my debt. However, rather than make any progress, I slid backwards, taking on more and more debt, while holding low paying jobs, living in an apartment I could hardly afford, and periods of unemployment. The real story started in 2009, when after hitting rock bottom and ending up feeding myself with my change jar, I moved in with my grandfather, enabling me to focus almost all of my income on paying off my debt. Upon regaining employment and seeing that I was able to finally make real progress, I was finally able to set a goal for myself. I started 2009 with $64,576 of debt to my name, and I promised myself: I WILL BE DEBT FREE BY MAY 2014.
