It's been a while since I made an update.

Loan May 2018 Jul. 2017
Student Loan (6.41%) $15,209 $16,879
Car Loan (4.45%) 0 6,642
$15,209 $23,521

I paid off my car loan recently by cashing in some investments that I had hoped would be able to compound for one or two more decades. I didn't want to do it, but my life situation had changed, and I felt I had little choice. I'm not at liberty to discuss that life situation.

Also, my mortgage has decreased $3,450 since my last update.

Still plugging away, I suppose, although sometimes I wonder if I'll ever make it. My income has fallen, so I'm not able to snowball the car payment into the school loan as I had planned.
