Hello all. So I need some advice from people who have gone through the college process and are where I want to be. I am 24, live in Chicago, and I just recently quit my apprenticeship to go back to school. The trades are huge here and pay extremely well. (two more years and I would have been making $45.00 an hour) Long story short, my heart wasn't in to it as I have always wanted to teach. Sooooo, I gave my notice and enrolled in a community college in the suburbs. Things are absolutley horrible now. I took a job at a warehouse working graveyard shift, 5 nights a week, 10 hours a day. We are not allowed to take a break and the pay is hardly worth it. (11.00 an hour) To top that, I have class MWF from 8:00 am - 2:00 pm. (taking 16 credit hours) I get no sleep, and have no time for school work. In fact, I have a paper due tomorrow and about 3 hours to write it before I have to go back to work. Sunday is my only day to concentrate on school work as I have to work side jobs on Saturday to make ends meet. I know your thinking, well, quit your job so you can concentrate on school. I made too much money for financial aid last year, which was not much, and I don't quilify for private student loans. I am completly lost as what to do. I can't keep this up much longer, let alone another 3 1/2 years. Any advice would be great!
