Confused

Following your blind rage comes a sort of calming confusion. How could this be? Are the numbers for real? What can be done?

Trapped

Suddenly, and without warning, your confusion may send you into a tizzy, and the walls may feel like they're closing in. DON'T PANIC.

Apathetic

See? You're fine! Just breathe! By now you may just say "haha, screw it all!! I'll just change my name and move to Nicaragua!!" Tempting though this may be, it's not recommended.

Lost

Awww, you poor thing. Reality has once again struck, and you're probably feeling like a hedgehog with an empty toilet paper roll stuck on its head.

Helpless

Right about now, it's completely normal to feel a bit helpless -- nowhere to go, no answers in sight. But you mustn't lose hope!

Contemplative

Ahhh yes, that's right. Take a deep breath. Remember your training.

Reassured

You remember that nobody but YOU controls your destiny. You made an investment in yourself, and you're the captain of your own financial ship.

Determined

THAT'S THE TICKET! GET MOTIVATED! THESE LOANS DON'T STAND A CHANCE! GET SOME!!

Relaxed

It's hilarious, right? What were you even worried about? Haha, who knows!

Proud

You know what? You should be proud. You went to COLLEGE, and you FINISHED. That's a major achievement.
