I'm just not used to this.

I've been in college for about a year now and it is kicking my butt. I'm used to high school and in high school we get breaks and summers and random days off. In college its term, few days off, next term- and it's kicking my butt. I've decided to take a leave of absence from Kaplan, mainly so I can attempt to find work so Kyle and I don't begin to stress about money at such a young age, but also so I don't start to falter even more with my school work. The beginning of my first term I was excited and so motivated, but now I'm starting to struggle with focusing and I know that isn't who I am. I've never had problems getting my work done, and I sure as heck am not used to turning in work late. So I have definitely decided I need a break even though it will take longer for me to get my degree, I would rather take more time than lose more of my sanity.

  1. Hi Shanell,
    So sorry to hear that you are struggling with school. Don't beat yourself up over taking time off. Only YOU know what is best for you. I,myself, have had a hard time keeping up, too. Juggling school, work, family, relationships is hard for anyone. Take time for yourself and come back when the time is right!
    Best of luck to you..:)
