In my opinion, you need to do what you want to in life. If you don’t want to continue to go to school, and instead you get a job to save money, then do it. If you want to travel across the country to be with the one you love, then do it. If you want to stay in school and put that as your first priority, then do it. Nobody should tell you how to live your life or judge you with the way you’re living it.
I’m not going to be going to school in the Fall, and possibly not in the Spring, either. No, I don’t get financial aid and school is super expensive. Not going to take out a loan, yet. I want to get a somewhat secured job before that. I am going to finish, on my own time. But for now, I am going to live at home and get a job and save up money for our wedding and a place for us to live once we are able to live together.
Honestly, I don’t care what anybody says about the choices I make in my life and neither should you. You are the one living it, so don’t listen to the negativity of others trying to bring you down and make you live your life the way they think you should.
