    Tips for living on your Own

    I have been on my own for about two years now. I mean I live with my boyfriend, but we do split costs down the middle equally or as equal as we can when situations arise. I also consider being on my own with roommates alone because I was the only one paying for my own stuff and taking care of my well being. I was working part time and going to school and paying for all of my necessities that wasn’t covered. Here’s a list of things I wish we knew before living on my own.

    First Day of My Last Day of School

    It’s so crazy to think I started my last first day of school for my undergraduate degree this past Monday. I can’t believe I’m 3 months away from earning my Bachelor’s degree. I can’t believe I’m so close to earning my second degree. My main goal for my last semester is to do my very best and earn the highest GPA I can.

My stepfather has always been tough on me so earning my degree at the end of the year will be the most accomplishing thing in my life to date that…

I was working during the summer and thankfully, with that job I was able to afford everything I needed to attend orientation. I bought my round trip train ticket, and paid for my orientation. Thankfully, I didn’t have to stay in a hotel for orientation. Normally people go with their families, but mine didn’t…

    My community college experience

    Community college was one of the best decisions I made in my life! In high school, I always told myself I wasn’t going to go to community college. I thought community college was for those who couldn’t get into an actual university. I thought it was beneath me, the truth is I didn’t want to stay in my hometown. After realizing I couldn’t afford to attend a university because of costs, I decided community college is better than no college. Sure my mom and step father stressed to me how important an education is, but they never really supported me with my education. They didn’t help me pay for it,…
