Thanks everyone for all your input. I'm surprised this thread is still kicking! I'm glad though. I've actually just decided to student teach. I managed to get more hours at my current job to save up enough money to pay all my bills for all those months I will be student teaching. But it does help living with my parents because that gets rid of paying rent and the bills that come with that! My fiance also got a HUGE promotion, which couldn't come at a better time...so not only will we be financially stable...we will even be able to do some saving which I hadn't planned on...so yay!!
