Trying to balance family, school and work
I have been raising my family for 28 years, so my decision to go back to school was a difficult one. It came with a lot of thought and anxiety. I was scared of being one of the oldest people in school. I graduated from high school in 1987 so I have been out of school for a long time. I knew I wanted a better life for my family so I decided going back to school was what I had to do. I am tired of struggling financially.
I started my college career this past September. My family has been very supportive, but I am having a hard time balancing everything. I feel as if I am not able to give my all to my family as I should. I babysit during the day. I take 4 classes a week which is 12 credits this semester. I am trying to take care of my husband and my kids the best I can, but I am struggling. I hope that as time goes by I learn better time management. I want to make my family proud of me; I want to succeed in my college career.
