I was doubting that school was the right move ...

I'm poor and frustrated and poor. Did I mention poor? Last night I had a bit of a meltdown with Dh. I didn't want to go to school today but it has cost so much that I decided that I needed to get my moneys worth and attend.

Today I got back two assignments - both A+ Click here to enlarge
Apparently my math equity assignment was "brilliant!" Click here to enlarge

I feel better. Click here to enlarge

Please tell me that I'm not alone in my occassional feelings of doubt.

Click here to enlarge Yes, I also doubt going to college. Especially since I have ms and never know when I will become disabled, it scares the shit out of me.

:wave I had a really great fall semester. Top of my class and I have been having a hard time pulling my ass out of bed and getting it done. I am just in a low spot right now. It also doesn't help that we have had the flu in our house for the last month.

Oh, I think about this everytime some financial emergency comes along such as my dead car and I need new pants. The only thing that really keeps me from quitting to go back to a full-time job is the fact that I did that for seven years and was only marginally better off than I am now. Without a degree, I have no formal training that will ever garner me anything more than a clerical job that would leave me just enough to subsist. Pretty much like we are now.

My whole view on it is, once you've reached a certain point of desperation, the worst you can do is shoot for a goal and hope for better than spend the rest of your life struggling to tread water and never try to exceed at all.

Lemme see...I have wanted to go back to school for so long, so badly, but couldn't because dh had a rotating shift schedule (one week mids, one week swings, one week days, and one weekend off a month, and so on).

This month he finally got a fixed shift.Click here to enlarge So now I'm going, but everytime I'm trying to do my chemistry homework, I think I'm too dumb for this shit.Click here to enlarge I got all As and Bs in all my general ed (all done), but this shit sucks so much ass I can hardly stand it.

My van is at the dealership, getting a new engine (under warrenty, thank doG), so we were getting by with dh's piece of shit, old Explorer. Then last night, it died just as I was parking at school. I mean DIED. Had to get towed. Dh had to call one of our friends to pick me up and now that friend is taking him to get a rental right now as we are down to ZERO transpertation.Click here to enlarge

I have an exam tomorrow in chem and last night, I did horribly on the surprise quiz in that class.

Yeah, I sometimes doubt that I should be going to school.Click here to enlarge

I start school again next week. Click here to enlarge It's been 8 years since I got my degree. I have the same feelings! I often hear my inner voice yelling at me, and begging to know why I've decided on a change of career at the age of 33. I must be nuts is all I can figure. Oh yeah, and poor! Poor and nuts!
