It’s Time.

It’s Time..

It’s time.  Time to stop procrastinating.  Time to stop feeling sorry for myself.  Time to stop the excuses.  Time to finish what I started.

When my family and I relocated over a year and a half ago, I was only two semesters away from obtaining my Bachelors degree in Secondary English Education.  Aside from moving my son away from his educational program and uprooting him from his friends, that was the toughest thing for me to handle.  I was 38 years old and already going into the field late in life; this setback could really take a lot more time with transferring credits and different degree obligations.

As I suspected, it did not go well when I tried to pick up where I left off in my home state.  I did get accepted into a college in my new state, and most of my credits transferred, but financing was the road block that made me wait an additional year.  Because I was not in my new state for an entire year, I had to pay out-of-state tuition costs, which were monstrous.  As a result, I ended up having to wait out the year until I was considered a resident.

In that year, I decided to get a full-time job.  My job is fantastic!  I work in a charter school that teachers children with low-incidence disabilities, albeit in the school office, but still close to the action.  I can participate in some activities and learn a lot from the teachers and my co-workers here.  This job and its paycheck has afforded my family the opportunity to purchase a new home, and for that I am happy.  So, do I go back to school AND work my full-time job simultaneously?  Could I do it?  For a while, I thought no.

  1. Although I think school is a great option, but why would you go back to school if you are loving your job and getting paid enough to buy a house? Just a question though! Cause I might have missed something.

    1. My income helped my household bottom line afford to buy a home. It is my passion to be a teacher. It has been for as long as I can remember, and my bottom line will grow from this decision as well. I have never felt complete without finishing my degree and doing what I love. It is something that has to be done.

  2. Congratulations! I really hope that you can finish that degree and that job brings further prosperity. Thank you for your post, it has given me drive to work on my blog. I’ll work my hardest to make it the best popular science magazine out there. Thank you.
    Again I hope the best for you

    Thank you for your time
    With best wishes
