Thanks everyone. D1, I paid off 55k worth of loans in 11 month. M1, haha, so true. I should have invested in Bitcoin. S1, just the standard 1 month. Here is my burner zhangkevin19@gmail.com (clearly an alias btw). Ping me if you would like. Best of luck to other fish in the same boat. No pun intended...

The official position at ATK is to say the firm is doing great and everything is just part of normal business cycle. Those laid off deserved it and there is nothing to see here. But ...

P3, since I have limited potential to increase my top line, so I reduced my bottom line. My wife and I still share our 8 plus years old compact car. We live in a 700 sq feet apartment in a secondary city. And we don't go out to eat if it is more than $30, including taxes and tips. :) My biggest expense is travel, but we don't go if I cannot redeem my points for flying. I am so luck to have my better half recognize the importance of deleveraging.
