really paid up

I've noticed that cell phone and Internet service providers tend to bill you by slapping up an amount that combines the current and the next billing cycle, making your bill look twice as large as it really is. As a psychological strategy, this strikes me as exceedingly stupid, but this month, I'm actually glad that that's how I've been billed. You see, when I paid off all my outstanding bills late last month, I was paying not only my March bills but also my April bills, well before their due dates; now, the only bills remaining to me are a student loan and a small fraction of an electric bill (I deliberately overpaid for the previous billing cycle). No other bills for the month. April is done. And that's a good feeling.
