what do you mean? You don't like paying $3000 to live in a cupboard?

Yeahh I love New York but I couldn't justify living there, so I'm happy enough taking a trip there when I get the chance to see my friends and hit up my favorite spots

Well, everyone and their mother wants to live in NY and there's only so much space to go around so this is kind of just what happens

Probably, if money is an issue for you it's hard to justify living in NYC. it's not going to get any cheaper I can tell you that much

I owe around 130k in student loans, already paid 30k during covid. Currently I make between 77k to 100k with my side hustle and full time job combined. Interest rates for loans is 7% and they are federal so they're not accruing interest right now till august. I don't know where to go from here. 1) concerned that I keep paying and then we get it forgiven 2) thinking perhaps federal loans will change and the interest can become lower? I have cut most of expenses down especially housing.
