Should I feel bad? What should I do? Feeling a little hopeless....

I have been in school but I couldn't sign up this semester because of a balance on my account that I cannot pay off right away. Well, I was out of a job until November and can't afford the tuition and the books. I'm so close to being done but I feel like crap because of this. I feel hopeless. Im broke as hell and can't do it. Feeling like this is my fault. Just a rant I guess....

  • I understand how you feel. I'm finishing up school, about to take my test and hopefully certify in my field. I'm terrified I won't pass high enough to certify becuase that is a possibility. I can actually pass and still not pass high enough to certify. My subscription is almost up though so if i don't, I'll have to wait until I get my tax refund to but another subscription just to retake my final. I just want to pass high enough to certify and start working again. We can't make it on just my husband's paychecks anymore.

    Hang in there. You're not alone.

  • Loans, financial aid? Anything in the slightest can help. Even if you just need to take one or two classes at a time. You can do what you put your mind keep positive. G'luck!

  • Will you get taxes back to pay off what you owe and then go in fall?
