i've changed my mind
I don't want to be a school teacher anymore

NO ONE understands
my sister-in-law says that i'll just change my mind again...

i personally dont think I will
it'll take me 10months to get this certificate
and then
after i get it
i can work from home and decide what i want to do with my life

ugh
why wont they let you? they cant expect you to do something that you wont be happy doing? plus 10 months is shorter than 5 yrs and probably less expansive in the long run too

I'm not against you, I understand that you want to be happy, but I can understand where your parents are coming from. I'd personally be tired of paying for college and then letting my child change their mind and paying for it again, I wouldn't do that, no way. I'd tell them to get a loan and do it themselves, just me being honest.

Good luck and I hope you can get things figured out. I do understand where you're coming from, but I'm trying to make you understand where your parents are coming from, too.

well if they're going ot do it for one..
then they should do it for the other...
IMO
if they are/were tired of paying for college
they shouldn't have paid for 3 of them..
they shouldn't have just forked over $9,000 for his credit card bill
i think things are a little uneven

Maybe that is why. I mean, maybe they learned their lesson?

They are paying for your college now, right? If it is one of the kinds of courses I'm thinking of, medical transcription classes for the certificate will not transfer to another college.

How expensive is the course? Maybe you could get a job on the side.

I dunno, like I said, I understand you wanting to be happy and changing your mind, but this is coming from a person who has to pay 35 thousand dollars for her own college education, so I guess I don't see where you're coming from a whole lot lol

Things aren't always fair. But, the good news is, since you don't make very much and are just starting this new job, you'll qualify for fanancial aid. I'd talk to a financial aid consultant at the school you want to go to and see if they can help you.

no i wont qualify for financial aid
actually i talked to the guy today
and since i still live with my parents
i have to go from their income...

and Ingi: no it's over in May so it wouldn't have to transfer to another college.
and about the job
if i keep my job.. i can't go for the medical transcription certificate
if i don't keep my job i'll be going to PSU from 11-3 and then for my
certificate from 4-9:30 everyday...
but my parents will be on my butt constantly..

idk i'll just give up what i want to do...
so my brother can have what he wants...
ya know his flight school lessons, his real estate job, whatever else he wants to do
considering he's 25 and delivers pizzas 2 nights and makes $200/month

but my parent's "owe" him something
from what my mother says
b/c she let my grandma raise him and feels guilty about it now

ETA: sorry guys i just needed to rant...
and all your posts are right...
thanks for letting me complain
