Can’t afford to go to school

Posted on 12/14/2011

I have three boys. I am struggling to find a job. It is so impossible out here if you’re not employed. For some reason they do not want you without a job. I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m struggling every day to find one. I’m on the internet, out at job fairs, applications…every day is finding a job for me.

I would love to be an RN, but right now I have to find ways to support my family and my boys before I could actually go out there and go to school.

I’m on public assistance at this time. I’ve never received welfare until a month before I had my baby…They’re [going to help] with daycare but they’re not helping yet and now I find out that the budget’s being cut so they might cut our daycare too.
