I tried and it didn't work out

A few of my close friends on here know the story. I was trying to go to school and doing good the first two months..Then I started going downhill. I took on two jobs. I had no choice. My grades began to suffer. I didn't have time to get my assignments done. Much less study for tests. I enjoyed going to school and just wish I could of finished. And I am going too. It will take me longer but I will get it done. I am waiting now until hopefully spring quarter. I am going to try the local college vs vo-tech. I would not have to take so many classes. When I was trying to go to school and work both jobs I was getting stressed out, I was not sleeping at all. I was up until 2 or 3 am trying to do assignments and having to be up at 7:00am to go to work

I want to THANK my friends for supporting me while I was in school. Making sure I got my assignments done and not playing on here.

But I also feel like I failed. A good friend from here said to me when I told her what was going on and I felt like I failed that the only one's who fail are the one's who don't try..Thanks Dayna.

Now I don't feel as stressed out. Yeah I am still working both jobs and I have a few extra hours to sleep now. Or get online. I am still tired a lot. That is to be expected. I spend more time with my daughter now that I don't have assignments to do. I still have all my books and I am kind of doing it on my own but I no longer go to school to take my tests. So I am still learning. Plus in that short time I was in school I did learn a lot.

So for the time being I took a quarter off until I can get back on my feet and get caught up on the bills.

Thanks to my great friends on here for their support. I lub you guys..

Aw. Don't beat yourself up for not being able to do it all. You need a good wife to take care of home so you can get it done. Big hugs! And, you did NOT fail.

Hugs Tammy and Dayna's right, you gave it your best and that makes you a winner. Given that this is your first quarter it is expected that some adjustments would have to be made before you settle into a comfortable workload. I believe your next try a quarter later would be much better. You know I think the world of you for being such a go-getter so I won't go into it again.

Much love and support, Ben.

Tammy, you didn't fail. Sometimes we need to step back and reevaluate things in our lives and then start over from another direction.
Best wishes and enjoy your hoildays......

Hun you made a good decision. Failing at motherhood and life would be far more devastating than deferring going to school right now.
Girl you have your priorities in the right order and I am very proud of you. Hugs and love Kimmie.

Oh Sweetie...........I am proud of you no matter what happened and you know it.....it takes a lot of courage to not only want to change your life.....but to actually make an attempt to do it...........fail? No you didnt fail sweetie.........you are learning your limitations..........and we all need to do that at some point.....being a mom and taking care of her and yourself.....is the biggest hurdle you will ever face......the rest.....is easy compared to that..........you just rest up and then decide what you want to do as far as which school or whether this is something you still want to do........(tho of course you know higher education is always the best bet) but either way I luv ya for trying and i luv ya and will support you with whatever decision you make..................

you dont fail unless you don't go back to school. Try college and try taking only ONE class at a time. Even with 2 jobs you can do one class and study. So what if it takes 5 yrs to get what you want...or 7 or 10...keep plugging and you win!
