I am sure my story isn’t abnormal from most people, secondary school is expensive and life happens.
I had the opportunity to continue my education at the age of 25, right around the same time I got married. While being married I had to post pone a semester or two due to be husband losing his job after the company he worked for shut down. Then postponing again when he decided to leave. I ended up moving back to my parents house in hopes to regroup and get some joint bills paid. When I say he left he disappeared and left me with a mountain of debt. After a semester had passed I tried to go back and finish but I wasn’t able to juggle the two jobs and living an hour away. I still owe the university I went to $850, which I have been making small monthly payments to chip down the balance until I am able to get it paid off completely. I am wanting to go back and finish what little I have left to do, I prefer to finish at that school, but even if I find a different place I would want to go to I have to get the $850 paid off so they will release my transcripts. I am also wanting to hopefully get more than the initial $850 so I don’t need to get anymore student loans to pay for the additional 20 hours needed to finish.
