"After going so far off the path of my educational goals I finally feel like I am on track."
I work hard daily to provide for myself, which kept school at a distance for me. I was trying to work full-time while going to school full-time to provide a future for myself. After trial and error, and a few sleepless nights, I realized that I was not fitting into the typical status quo. Attending a university was not only unbearable with my schedule but also impossible. There weren’t enough hours in a day to work a nine-hour shift plus attend class, study and find time to sleep. I was always a good student up until this point. I was beginning to fail my classes and furthering my education was becoming nothing more than a dream. I realized I did not have to find my success the same way other people did. Going to an on-campus university didn't work for me; however, that didn't mean it was too late for me to find some other option. I am now part of the online program and am in pursuit of my bachelor’s. After going so far off the path of my educational goals I finally feel like I am on track. I can now pursue the education I almost thought I couldn't have.
