Gah! Why is college so damn expensive?? I pay completely out of pocket (I f*** ed up and defaulted on a student loan in the past and now I don't qualify for financial aid). I can only work part time because I also have two kids, and I'm trying to squeeze in a couple classes this summer. According to my calculations, I have to save just about every penny I make so I can afford those three classes. And plus some to cover books and other supplies.
Maybe I'll just have to suck up my pride and go work at McDonald's at night or something for a little extra money. It's okay, the more challenges I face the more proud I'll be when I finally walk across that stage with my BSN.
