I decided to enter the workforce after I graduated from high school instead of going to college immediately. I was eager reap the benefits that came along with independent living. While the ability to make enough money to live on my own was fun for a while, the joy soon wore off when I realized that I didn't want to spend my entire life living paycheck to paycheck. I thought I had "failed" at life, until I got some advice from a friend who hadn't started college until she was in her 30s. That made me realize that I still had time to earn a degree and start a more successful career. I now love my job and encourage others to finish college, no matter their ages! I plan to post education tips on my new blog, since everyone can succeed in life with a good education!
