There are so many bills. And it doesn’t help when a spouse won’t sit down and help figure it out.
So, I’ve decided to go ahead with it anyway. Even if it’s just $10 here or $5 there. It has to add up to something.
You just have to decide to do it, make a plan, and follow that plan and make adjustments, if needed.
I had to go to my state capital for the right kind of birth certificate, which meant several hours of driving. Filled out forms, got my picture taken, wrote a check, and sent off the packet of information.
It was great to get my first stamp in the book. Reaching even this “smaller” goal is so rewarding.
I did it by enlisting family support, filling out a lot of forms for financial aid every term, making a schedule to plan for enough study time and then worked the plan.
I wish I had done this earlier in life. But perhaps it took all that time to gain experience that would help me appreciate the value of a college degree.
One day, I’d like to get another degree, perhaps a masters or doctorate. But right now, I’m glad to have finally graduated! :) Good luck to everyone else on this path—it is worth the effort!
