I have my quiet time to devote several hours of uninterrupted time . My family understands that earning this degree is very important to me and respects the time that I ask for. Of course, you cannot anticipate the unexpected like a sick child during the night. Being prepared helps for those little unexpected interruptions.

I would suggest keeping reading assignment with you. We waste time waiting at doctors' appointments. This is a perfect opportunity to get in a little reading. We can read many places . we wait. Keeping a copy of the syllabus with you and a calendar with notes when assignments are due will help check your class assignments daily. Something may change so prepared for it.
No one can earn your college degree for you. Once accomplished it is an achievement that you can be proud of. Earning my Associate's Degree in Respiratory Therapy was exciting and a huge accomplish. I quit school when I was in the eleventh grade to have my first child. I remember leaving the counselors office they day I quit she said good luck.

I was not a quitter I was just starting my family early. I had two more children before I started college full time. Determination and drive is how I earned my first degree and I did it with three small children a home. Join Now
