I got hit in the face with this thing called "Life" this month. Never knew it existed when I was in high school, but apparently once you graduate people expect you to actually be responsible for yourself. I was notified that I will not be allowed to return to the university I've been attending. So I busted my ass applying places and received four job offers and I was accepted to the local CC. Working at this new job of mine I've figured out that I can easily save back $200 a week living at home, but I want to go back and finish my degree at a university so I don't have to work for $8 an hour the rest of my life. I'll need $60,000 to finish out my degree and $200 a week isn't going to cover that. My family doesn't have money, and I've pretty much paid for everything since I was 16. It just seems like there is a system put in place for people like me to fail at life. I'm not the smartest person, but I work hard and I want a degree. I know a lot of rich kids who don't give a shit about going to college, but I busted my ass just to get accepted. How do I overcome? How do I make sure I achieve these goals? It just really feels like you have to have money to go anywhere in life.
