So moving to Grand Forks, I am excited because I have finally a more focused view on why I am here. I am going to get a Bachelor's Degree at UND, save some money, pay off bills, focus on getting things good. I was thinking of once I start working (I am looking for a job like crazy!), to save up a ton of money, do extra jobs for and with my dad, get some bills paid off and quit my job in the fall when school starts. Then I would use my work study grant to work ON campus, go to school full time and use the rest of my loans and grants to help pay for other bills. I would also be eligible for some assistance and Lyric would be Kindergarten in the fall, so I wouldn't have to be paying as much for child care. I have a bunch of money saved up, I am still expecting my MN state tax and MN property tax over the next few months, which would go into savings ... so yah. I also think that this would help me focus on Lyric more, too because I would have more time during the day on campus to work on homework and after school, my time could be more on her.
While in Minneapolis, it was really hard and hectic for me to work a great paying job 30 hours a week, go to school full-time and be a mama. At least with this, I can focus on my kid more and focus on college. I talked to my sister about this and she thinks it's a great idea. My dad a while ago, also said he'd help out watching Lyric a night a week if I got a serving job or something. Although I need to talk about this plan with him (grrr ... haha)
I think it's a good idea. I would like some feedback, though :)
