College.

College.

A definite poor skill would be to get my butt up and go to college so I can have a better chance at making an actual life for myself... like I've been saying I'm going to do since delaying college "for a year" (that was in 2003/2004). I've since had a child and struggle paycheck-to-paycheck. My pay is a joke, and my job is basically dead end. I need something more stable for my child. The thing is... where do I start?!

It's so overwhelming. There are a few things I'm sure of: I know I would like to do an online program, as I will have to work while doing the courses, and simply don't see how I will have time to go to a campus, work, and have time for my son. I also am sure I cannot afford to pay for college.

That's what my main question is here... what kinds of places can I look to find financial aid? Can I take out a school loan with bad credit? Are there any programs or scholarships specifically aimed at single parents looking to go to or finish college?

I am so going to cry…
