You life will be difficult. You will get married to an alcoholic drug addicted wife beating man who is abusive to you and your children. Unless you go to school, you will have no way to support yourself and your four children. Although, it seems that being a CNA is enough to make ends meet, the reality is that it won't be for long. Children will be born that need food, shelter, clothing, and medical attention. Your husband will steal what little you have to buy drugs. When you finally make the decision to go back to school, become an LPN, he will hinder you in every possible way. When you graduate, he will continue to make life difficult financially, emotionally, and physically. You will be drained but just don't stop. Finish until you get your bachellors.

Put your time in now so that you won't have to pay with blood, sweat, and tears later.
I have gotten independence out of my college experience. College is so much more independent than high school, and at first gets a lot of getting used to. I have also learned about different professors and their way of teaching. I have also been introduced to online classes, in some cases it is better, other it is worse. It all depends on the course. It has been valuable to attend Edison State College because it is a stepping stone in my way of becoming an independent adult.
