living in America. Even though I'm not directly affected, the shutdown is the latest in a long list of horrible things about this country that make me want to strangle someone daily. If it were up to me, I'd be living in Canada or France (gotta put that French minor to use!), but I don't have enough money to leave the state, much less the country.

Also, if the government owns my student loans, do I need to send in my payment this week? I mean, who is going to be there to process it on the other end? If I weren't still rehabbing my loan post-default, I would strongly consider not paying it this month just as a big fuck you.
