Furthering Your Education Through Academics

If you are interested in furthering your education, you likely understand that you will get much further in life and have a higher overall quality of life if you decide to get your degree. Even if you haven’t finished high school, or dropped out for one reason or another, finishing up or simply getting your GED will put you in a better position to be successful in life. That fact of the matter is that each level that you achieve in your education has a direct correlation, not only with how much money you will make throughout your career, but it has been shown that the more education a person receives the happier they generally are. This can be inferred strictly as a relationship between higher wages and overall happiness, but people also tend to feel much better about themselves when they have applied themselves and furthered their education.

The first step to developing a higher level of education is simply through making the decision that you want to get a degree. Pursuing a degree means that you are going to have to spend a great deal of time, as well as forking over a great deal of money, unless you have options such as grants or someone else is paying for your schooling. This can deter a lot of people from obtaining a degree, so actually making the decision to go forward with your degree is a major step.

Some people may have an easy time obtaining their degree, due to the fact that they don’t have major responsibilities like a family and a full time job that they must attend so they can pay their bills. Those with more responsibilities are without a doubt going to experience a much more difficult time, however, it is these people that understand how tough life can be without a degree. The reality is that life starts to stack up as time goes on it is much harder to allocate time to obtain a degree if you are in this situation. However, if you do decide to get your degree, once you are finished your workload is going to drastically go down and you will make a lot more money throughout the remainder of your life. You will be a much better provider for your family and you will be setting an amazing example for your kids, or future kids.

Don’t hesitate to start researching the different routes you can take to get a degree. There is no question that education through academics is one of the most important things in life and we are lucky enough to live in a time where there are so many online options and after hour’s schools available that nearly anyone can find the time to get a degree. Even if you only attend one or two classes at a time, which is very feasible with a full time job and kids, you can still complete your degree in a matter of a few years. There are also tons of online schools which typically feature a single class every four or six weeks and you can usually get a degree in less than two years. The options are vast and the rewards are huge, so start looking into furthering your education today!

It Wasn’t Too Late For Me

Everyone in my family has a degree, and there was never any doubt in my mind that I would get one for myself, as well. But getting through school is not an easy thing to do. As the years passed by I was finding myself falling further and further behind in school. I wasn’t taking my classes nearly as seriously as I should have been, and I wasted a lot of time. But, thankfully, my dad took me aside before it was too late. He told me that I had to get serious about my schoolwork or I might not be able to further my education. When I sat down and actually paid attention to the grades that I had been making the previous few years, I was shocked by how low they were. And, that gave me all of the motivation that I needed to make a change.

From that point on I focused on my studies. I did all that I could to get get good grades. I didn’t goof off. I put my full effort into my schoolwork, and it really paid off. I was able to graduate, and now I am going on to earn a degree for myself.

My family is all about getting a good education, and I am glad that it wasn’t too late for me to do the same. I have always wanted this, but I just didn’t realize that the way that I was goofing off could have harmed my chances of making it. I am so glad that everything ended up okay in the end. I am going to further my education, and I couldn’t be happier about that.

Obtaining a New Career

I am going to start a new career very soon. I already went to school and received my degree for criminal justice. I didn’t realize how important it was to actually get a degree until I finished mines and was able to find work right away with it. I am making way more money than I was making working at my last job, that did not require any type of schooling. I am now working as an entry level legal assistant, and I also plan on going back to school just to receive my paralegal certificate to have under my belt as well. This will also allow me to increase my income.

I can’t stress enough how important it is to get some time of degree because I will always be able to advance when the time is right for me. I would not be where I am at today had I not went to school and obtained my degree. I realized even just having one basic certificate under my belt, without an actual degree, is enough to increase income and get a better job in general. I am able to support my family without struggling or living pay check to pay check. It is such a good feeling, and it makes me extremely proud of myself.

I still have a lot more progression to make, but I am happy that I made it this far because I would still be where I was at with my last job, with no room for growth to improve my income within that company.

Time for Me, Time for My Degree!

I did it! I completed my registration. I am finally taking the time to better my future, my career, and myself. My first semester is scheduled, I purchased my textbooks, and now I begin the journey towards my nursing degree. It’s been a long road, but I have saved enough money, and I am ready!

Completing my registration may seem like a small feat, but it is a significant move forward for me. It makes everything feel real. I have always wanted to be a nurse. I wore scrubs and a stethoscope for Halloween five years in a row, scoffing at anyone who called it a doctor’s costume. Now, I have a scrub set with my name below a patch inscribed with “student nurse.” Making the choice to obtain a degree in nursing is going to change my life.

The textbooks, wow! I completely underestimated the cost of books. Thankfully, I budgeted for unforeseen expenses. My manager has been very understanding. She knew I was saving for college and scheduled extra shifts and overtime whenever possible. Last week when we discussed my registration, she was able to transfer my employee status to part -time so that I can focus on my degree. When I told her how expensive the textbooks were, she put a “textbook” tip jar by the cash register. She has been supportive and encouraging from day one.

I have spent this last year working, saving, and reading everything I can get my hands on to help prepare for the classes ahead. Earning a degree in nursing is going to be hard, but I am ready to give it my all. Nursing is an in-demand profession. This degree is the best gift I can give myself. I have been dreaming about this for years. It is finally time to get my degree!
