I'm going anon, bc I'm embarrassed that I don't have more to say for myself (Although one day I will)
I'm 22 and pregnant with my first baby. I am a high school graduate, but have not attended college yet. I come from a crazy home life, I know that's not an excuse but life has been rough for me these last few years since graduation.
Now, I have my own apt in my name, living with my long time boyfriend, my own car, and a full time job. I keep thinking about the future a lot. How am I gonna work, go to school, and handle a newborn?
I KNOW it will be hard, but I'm not giving up on getting my schooling done.
So my question is, what are some good career choices? I was thinking about going to become an LVN. That's 1.5 years of school. I would do that at Galen, which is a school that only does nursing programs. Then after that, I could become an RN.... However, it's a trade school. So I wouldn't feel like that's sufficent. Going to a regular college would make this process SO much longer, as I'd have to get my basics done and that'll take a couple years alone.
I want to provide my future child with the best possible life I can. Not having a degree and a career is not an option for me. I'd feel like a failure.
What would you suggest? What would you do? WHAT ADVICE CAN YOU OFFER A FIRST TIME MOTHER?
WHAT ARE SOME LEGITAMATE QUICK CAREER CHOICES?
My head is spinning here, I'm sorry this post is all over the place.
