I thought my taxes from 2007 were crazy complicated, having worked for several non-profits, but those were nothing compared to this year! Damn complicated.
There is my student loans; in preparation for grad. school, I consolidated my loans and in return, the federal government sent me a lovely pay schedule, with an estimated pay-off date, if I continue to pay the payment I'm making (which, granted, is tiny): April 31st, 2031!
Then there is grad. school: GRE minimum scores, actual GRE scores, application deadlines, application fees, projected tuition rates, cost of living, fellowship awards, fellowship application deadlines.
Numbers stress me out. If I were from the Kingdom of Wisdom, I would live in Dictionopolis and very rarely travel.
