i have to admit that i hadn't thought about how i needed to factor in what i was doing to pay off my debt. i had taken out a personal loan a while back to pay off some stuff and i realized that now i've payed more than the amount of the loan and the debt based on the additional interest that i was being charged. it's one of those life lessons. just learn to only spend w/in your means and you won't find yourself in such a hole down the road
