Why is my student loan the size of a house? (and other Midlife Mysteries)

I turned 50 several months ago, and I’m finding I have more questions than answers these days, like:

  1. How is my student loan still the size of the mortgage I’ll never be able to afford?
  2. When did I become the adult in the room?
  3. Why is my mother’s voice coming out of my mouth?
  4. How could so much of what I learned in school turn out to be so wrong?
  5. Where did my waistline go?
  6. Why does my retirement date keep moving?
  7. Why do I still believe things are going to get better!?  🙂
