So I finally did it. It's over. I have spent years of my life balancing work and school, fought off insane loneliness, surmounted all the doubts and weird looks and all-nighters and every last frakking credit. And it's DONE.

I can't believe it, but it's really over: I've completed my Bachelors degree as a thirty-something adult.

It's too new to say much about it. I'm still looking for work and anxious about day-to-day survival. But for all the insanity it took to get here, I just want to post this... maybe it will encourage another adult college student who is still in the trenches. If I can do it, believe me, YOU can do it!! (And please feel free to message me if you are still stuck there and want to vent!)

I want to go back but i just cant get motivated. I feel this is big thing for me to have not accomplished as i love school and was a good student but life happened n now im 33 n not getting any younger n the cost is so much even with financial aid
