Hi Thaleda,

I can tell you are to a point that you want to tear out your hair.  Relax...  It is so hard right now for everyone the way the economy is.  My daughter and son both looked at going to college.  My daughter ended up going for a short term and realized that financially she could not do it at this point and time.  We could not help her even though we really would like to.  So she ended up quiting around christmas and moving back home.  My son seeing his sister go through this felt he was not ready to deal with that kind of pressure either.  They opted to enter the millitary.  SO at this point and time they are both in the army.  They found that they could get their education paid for and have food, clothing, a roof over their heads, and medical insurance, a job, pay check...everything they need.  Now I don't know if you have looked into this option or not but it may be something that would be good for you.  Just an idea for you.  Check into all the services and then make a choice.  My daughter got a  $40,000 bonus for signing up.
