Martin: One hundred eleven days And counting.
Georgina: Are you Counting down To something?
Martin: I’m counting down to the day when my Student loans will be Discharged. I only took this job because it Qualifies for the Loan forgiveness program.
Georgina: But you’ve worked here for over two years already. You mean you’ve been working To pay off your student loans all this time?
Martin: That’s right. I took out loans to Subsidize my college education. After I graduated, I had a choice to either start Repaying the loans or work in a Public service job for three years.
Georgina: Three years is a long Commitment.
Martin: You’re telling me, but I had no choice. It was either that or Be indebted for the next 10 to 15 years. I couldn’t take that.
Georgina: Now I get it.
Martin: Get what?
Georgina: I’ve noticed you’ve been happier lately and I thought you were finally enjoying your work here, but now I know it’s because you’re getting closer to Getting out from under your loans.
Martin: That’s right. In less than four months I’ll be Free at last, free at last!
