If you’re looking for a way to pay off your student loans, we may have the answer for you in this episode. Slow Dialog: 1:16 Explanation: 3:14 Fast Dialog: 15:35 Martin: One hundred eleven days and counting. Georgina: Are you counting down to something? Martin: I’m counting down to the day when my student loans will be discharged. I only took this job because it qualifies for the loan forgiveness program. Georgina: But you’ve worked here for over two years already. You mean you’ve been working to pay off your student loans all this time? Martin: That’s right. I took out loans to subsidize my college education. After I graduated, I had a choice to either start repaying the loans or work in a public service job for three years. Georgina: Three years is a long commitment. Martin: You’re telling me, but I had no choice. It was either that or be indebted for the next 10 to 15 years. I couldn’t take that. Georgina: Now I get it. Martin: Get what? Georgina: I’ve noticed you’ve been happier lately and I thought you were finally enjoying your work here, but now I know it’s because you’re getting closer to getting out from under your loans. Martin: That’s right. In less than four months I’ll be free at last, free at last! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
