Sooo I’ve decided to go back to school after like almost 8 years and ugh I’m dreading it now but I can’t live from paycheck to paycheck forever.
Anyone else done the same before?
Or college kids what are your tips? I feel like everything’s changed lmao 😭

I know a bunch of people who have. They all seem to feel like its the right decision so I think it's def something to consider if you can. What are you thinking of going back for?

Communications and or English although I started school for photography when I first went and then went into cosmetology because why not lol

Communications has a lot of transferable skills between types of work post-grad! That's a good one imo

Telling myself I can get used to it is literally my mantra all the time!
Yeah I mean I’m only 27 but lol I know exactly what you mean about being around younger people in their 20s. I work in a restaurant so I work w a lotta ppl younger than me and I’m always silently judging them thinking ‘was I like that when I was 21????’
I’m really hoping all things go well and it pays off!

My brother went back to school after almost 20 years. He works for one of the government agencies here in our country and had to complete Public Admin course in order to be eligible for higher posts. He did not have any problems going back or being around people a lot younger but it may also be because he's very outgoing. I did ask him how he survived, he just said he stays silent usually and let the younger ones lead the discussion so that they won't feel like he's being authoritative over them.

Ooh that’s good advice! I do that a lot when I’m training older ppl at work I don’t want them to think I’m being bossy or acting like I know more than them. I’m outing but pretty quiet when it’s people I don’t know.
I think I’m more worried about getting back into juggling school and work and ugh lowering my budget because of school 😑

I did it!
I went back (and graduated!) and don't regret the choice to do it at all, even though it was hard sometimes. I kept my car that I was ready to get rid of for five more years than I had planned to so that I didn't have to make car payments, and worked a LOT, but it was totally worth it in the end.

I would go to class and come home and do homework until it was time to work. Then I'd do more homework. My only break was Omona. I cancelled Netflix and Hulu to save both time and money. I got the cheapest phone plan I could find and then didn't get a new phone for years.

My work ethic (I know the value of a degree in my bones) meant that I graduated cum laude and with all kinds of swag with my robes. I'm in a job in my degree field now and love it. I would do almost all of it again, with no hesitation.

I was the same age as the parents of some of my classmates. This did not make me smarter, or dumber than them. I pass for someone in their twenties, so that part was easy, but it was sometimes challenging to take advice or direction from someone so young -but that was my ego, not a reflection on them. I had to grow and learn that almost everyone has something that they can teach me at some point. Learning that the teenager has more knowledge than me in some ways was one of the most valuable parts of my education.

Hey thanks for this!
This is seriously so motivating!
I'm definitely in a different place in my life then I was ten years ago and it's for sure going to be hard but it's nice to know it;s doable and worth it.
Anyways thank you for the motivation, keeping this bookmarked for when I'm not feeling it. [:
