Well as most people know, I didn't graduate High School. I had all my credits but they wouldn't let me graduate because my Mother owed the bookstore $500. I offered the bookstore, to pay it myself and they wouldn't take my money. They said my mother had to come in and deal with them, she didn't have the time. So, I never graduated.
I realize this now that it's illegal but I do not have the money to take the situation to court at this time. I'm also not the only student they did this to.
My Husband and I ended up moving in together and I was going to get my GED but for the past 3 years my focus has been all over. Having my daughter, husband was in college and working two jobs. I have been a stay at home mom because it's what is best at the moment for our daughter.
I do have ADHD which makes it really hard for me to focus. I understand everything very well and love learning but I can't focus. I don't get treatment for it because I was never supported by family for it. I have been currently looking into treatment for it but I can't start anything until after I have our new baby.
I am not giving up on my dream...
I am still going to finish school and go for my BA in Business for Fashion Management and Merchandising. I'm only 22 and have a few years before everything becomes super cryptic and rushed. I really do want to open up a medium sized Boutique. (I'll blog about my dream Boutique a little later.)
I also wanted to go for My BFA for Interior Design.
Not really, It makes more sense for me to deal with my BA before hand, I can always go back and for my BFA. Do Interior Design later.. I put the horse ahead of the cart to often and need to take my time. I still have to pop this baby out, wait 2 months and take my GED. Hopefully by Winter I will start school.
Life happens and it's wonderful but I know I can't put my dreams aside. Especially because I don't think my dreams are selfish ones. I actually believe it's something I was meant to do. Know what I mean?
I guess I am fishing for some encouragement. Any Mom's, regardless if you are in my position or not, have any words of encouragement for me?
I wouldn't mind a little, even if I know I can do it. I still have my moments of doubt...
