How do you Work and Study?

So many of us, adults, want to get a higher education; albeit, you are finishing what was once started or started fresh. Often times, we wonder how in the world can we fit it in. As many of you know, I have been in school full-time for the past 3 years. I moved to Greensboro and got into ECPI for Medical Assistant, when a teacher gave me an F, I quit that school. It was a gateway for me anyway and just part of a bigger picture. Then I took a course to become EMT certified, but never took the test. I chickened out big time and the economy at the time scared me. I wouldn't have been making anymore money than what I was currently making so at that point, I gave up the idea of going to school just to change my job so that I can go to school to do what I really want to do. Confusing, I hope not. But that stint at ECPI helped me transfer some course into the local Community College; I had hopes of getting my Associates. Well, that didn't pan out ( a few variables; including the teachers and their work) and I then transferred into one of the many local universities; but with 54 credits to boost. Knowing that the work can be tedious, I opted to go from full-time to part-time while maintaining my full-time status at school. It is working better for me and there is less stress.

If you are planing on going back to school, note that it would be best to work full-time and school part-time or vice-versa. And that advice is from personal experience. I found this great article that gives good advice for the adult looking to go back to school and I hope you find some great tips. "What can I do to manage my work and study combination?"
