My Two Major Dilemmas

The two major dilemmas in my life are rather substantial right now. The problem is I don’t know what to do about either one. Maybe that’s why I’m so emotional at the moment.

Let’s start with the job situation. I am probably going to be without one soon. And it’s because I can’t sell to people who are trying to lower their bill. I can’t lie to people in order to get them to buy something. It just isn’t me. The problem is I’ll be unemployed and that will cause other issues with my home life. I’m looking for something but there aren’t many options out there right now.

My school issues are huge. I will not be able to finish because of our income. Because my husband’s income is figured into what I’m eligible for, I cannot get the additional $5000 to finish. That is only two months from completion. TWO MONTHS!!!

If I can’t finish school, I will have all the loans to pay back with no chance to make enough to pay them. Or I will be able to pay them. I just won’t be able to make a living. I can’t make enough now.

In today’s job market an Associate’s is just not enough. Even a Bachelor’s is sketchy. I’ll be trying to pay loans that are ALMOST a Bachelor’s but with an Associate’s. How ridiculous is that? At least with a Bachelor’s I would stand a chance on being able to survive.

I’m working on more scholarships and I’m hoping those will come through so I can pay for school. I don’t know. I also have a lead on a job that might make enough to finish. The only problem with it is that it is not here. In fact, it would take me a loooooooong way from here. We’ll see and I’ll keep you informed. Until then, keep your fingers crossed that I can figure something out.


  1. Ah ha, I just found "My History," so I could see what was up.

    Cheers to you for going back to school. I was 33 when I got my undergrad and 40something when I got my master's.

    Your school seems pricey, but I don't know much about on-line schools, so I'll shush.

    Money issues are hard, my husband and I married in April 07, and in September, he lost his job. It's taken more than 3.5 years for him to get back on his feet, and he's not fully up yet.

    But there are worse things to go through.

    My fingers will cramp up if I cross 'em too long, so instead, I'll pray for you, "Mad Mind." :)

  2. Sending you positive vibes on these 'issues'! Will definitely come back for more updates and just reading more from you!
