*Sighhhh* What I would give to go to college again.
I paid out of pocket for a few quarters at a local community college. It cost me over $1200 for two classes, one of which I failed 3 times. So I paid $900 to fail that class. I aced the English class with a B+ so it only set me back $250 for that class. After failing themath 3 times, I gave up until I either A) Got a grant or B) won the lottery. Neither of which will happen without a GED. I had a daughter in my mid twenties, built my business in my late twenties and then had 3 more kids in my 30’s and have been too busy with them to get my education. I am now seeing that it is pertinent to have not only a HSD but also a college degree to get the job I want.
In all honesty, even with a college degree, I won’t get a good job because of my background.
It used to be perfect,but that’s what I got for the fruits of my labor in Ohio for 10 years.
If I lived in Nevada, I wouldn’t be suffering.
While searching for a way to pay for classes, I stumbled upon Human capital contracts which are the newest resource in paying for higher education. Basically, investors (companies) would agree to pay for your education in return for a percentage of your future income over a fixed period of time which is scaled to your wages.
Who would want to sponsor a “30 something” mother of 4 (with a felony on her record) that they know nothing about?
Sponsors are usually family members. That’s laughable because half of my family have died off and my mom doesn’t have a job, she is disabled and lives on SS. My dad, who was “Helpy Helperton”, passed away unexpectedly 4 years ago. So…my chances of actually going to college are slim to none until I get the time to get my GED so I can get as many grants as possible.
Luckily I wasn’t stupid enough to mess around with drugs because once you have a drug conviction, you’re screwed. They won’t give you any kind of grant of financial aid or loans. There is still a glimmer of hope for me. I just need to find some Company Sponsors who will benefit off of my witty talent and get my GED and then maybe I can get my shit together…not just for me, but for my wonderful kids who deserve a better life.
And that’s that.
Feel free to become a sponsor 🙂 LOL
