Stay in school and just get it done or you will be doing it forever, that has been my problem. I'm 32 and just starting to try to earn a degree. I've been struggling through pre-reqs for yeeeears! I can't wait to get to a point to where I never have to sit in another class ever again. Don't let anybody hold you back no matter who she is, if she does'nt understand she's not worth it. Infflation is going to keep getting higher and wages are just going to stay the same. Without some sort of college degree... your screwed!
