College isn't for every one. If it's not for you, find some other source of education and stick with it. I.e. trade school or apprenticeship. Even if it takes a very, very long time, get an education. You're going to need it.
Here are a few things that make it a little easier. These are things I wish I'd known at your age.
- Do it while you're young. (It's easier to process and learn new ideas.)
- Do it while you're single. (Supporting a family makes it difficult to go to school.)
- Do it consistently. (You're more likely to finish if you keep going. Don't quit with hopes to return.)
I've already talked about the importance of doing it on someone else's nickel (if possible.) But I want to make sure that you understand that NONE OF THESE things disqualifies you from eligibility. If you're already old, broke, married with 8 kids and you quit school a long time ago, it's NEVER TOO LATE to return. It's just a little more difficult, but not impossible. It's never too late to start over, go back or begin. Never. Ever.
Just do it.
