Non-Traditional Students / My last real day off for a while
« on: August 14, 2006, 11:51:06 PM »
It's hard to believe school is about to start.  I still am kicking myself for booking work up to the day before orientation starts.  Since I will still have to work my hours on weekends, I think most of my down time really will only be during school days. 

Since I have no work obligation today, I slept in, fed my newborn, went to the mall with wife and the baby, and napped some more.  Just got back from a walk in the neighborhood and about to have dinner.  Tomorrow is another work day. 

Non-Traditional Students / Home equity loans
« on: August 05, 2006, 12:33:01 AM »
For people who know more on this than me, I wonder if anyone can give me an educated guess on where the interest rates will go in the next 1-2 years.

I keep debating on whether to finance my expenses with an equity loan which I can take out at 6.75% fixed over 20 years, 5.95% if I keep the loan for 5 years.  My wife thinks I should first deplete our savings. 

I guess my thinking is if the rate is headed higher, then I might as well take out a loan now as opposed to waiting till I really need it and get stuck with a higher rate.  The decision to take out a loan will not  however affect whether I work or not, since I still would need money for rest of my expenses.

Thoughts on this?
