It took me 5 years to finish undergrad even with summer school every year and intersession twice.
With that said, it's fair to also include that I didn't live the traditional college life. I worked two jobs to put myself through and only had enough time to take 12 hrs a semester. I also lost aro...

As someone who used to work on the front lines in Baton Rouge in the business of catching burglars, I would recommend Custom Security or Sonitrol locally. They were easily the two most reliable alarm companies in my opinion.
Sonitrol is the probably the most reliable, but mainly for protecting bu...

Dated for the first 2 years.

We were engaged for another 6 months, both of us were 31 when we tied the knot.
Two key factors that led to pulling the trigger:

The only time I use my credit card is when I can't find/lose my debit card.
I've always been pretty budget conscious with money. I put myself through undergrad in cash and the only debt I currently have is a mortgage.
Can somebody in this thread who puts all of their expenses on a card ...

It's all about perspective.
