One More Year

Just one more year and by next spring I should have my degree in hand. Honestly, the only way that that is possible is due to the fact that I can take online college courses. Having accredited online schools is probably the deciding factor for more people than we realize. Due to the hours I keep there is no way I have time to physically show up for classes much less be able to get all of my classes in the evening to begin with. I’d never have a life, not that I don’t have much of one now, but it will pay off in the long run once I get a better job and have a more stress free life. Plus with a lot of people being laid off from work this is the best opportunity to get back in school and obtain a degree because once you start applying for jobs they might pick people who have a degree instead of you.

The best thing about these online courses is that you can be accepted to essentially any college around the country and still obtain the same education for whatever degree you are pursuing. I happened to be lucky enough this and last semester to obtain a pell grant. The first couple years I was paying out of my pocket when I could because I refuse to get a student loan. I have already been approved for a pell grant this coming fall and spring too so that is a load off of my mind. Now I just have to buckle down and get things finished. I’ve been missing deadlines this semester for whatever reason. I’m so used to all assignments being turned in on Sundays and this one class requires assignments to be turned in on Fridays. I only have a month left so hopefully I can get my act together fast lol I did turn in all the assignments and just have left the second part to a project I think but that’s not due until the end of April I know for sure.
