My daughter is 6 years old, and now I am 24. I had her when I was 17. I am coping fine with mothering...except, I really feel like there's nowhere for me to go from here now.
At the time when I had Hailey, my daughter, I was a different person...a rebel. Sex, drugs, everything. School was the last and least important thing on my list. And now I'm older, and I've realized that I am meant to be an academic...but how? I haven't even finished high-school.
The most important thing to me now is teaching Hailey the importance of education, and the environment... but I am a waitress...and nothing for her to look up to. Ironically, it was having her that made me see how important education is, and her which caused me to drop out.
Where the hell do I go from here...
