This site helped me alot, it's geared at AP History (I wish I knew about it in HS) but you can look through "notecards" of time periods and find out the major events/people during them.

Check out these links for help with subsidized child care, and if you have any resources to add for your state, feel free to share them! :D

So I told you guys that I was looking for a job. Well I found one, Dickeys bbq pit. and I took it because we have been desperate for money. well a few weeks later, yesterday, Walmart calls me and I get interviewed for a deli job. well I got it. I feel horrible about quitting the other job so soon, but I don't like it and Walmart is going to be paying me .75 cents more an hour. Its just been really getting to me and now I don't even want to walk into the restraunt. Did I mention that I have a problem with confrontation to the point that its almost crippling.
Public school? Charter or Alternative? Home schooling? Private school?
I've been thinking a lot about returning to school so I can finish my bachelor's degree and go for my MSW.
I'm hesitant about it, because:
I currently have no real counted income and am on HUD, so I have completely free housing. I am BARELY making it as things are right now.
I'm worried that if I start getting student loans etc to pay for school, HUD will want me to start paying rent, and I will be drowning the way I was when I was working full time and had to pay for everything. Does anyone have experience with this?
The class I am in is intro to Algebra. Math75. It's a pretty basic math class. I am doing excellent in it, with all 100's on all assignments. It is all online thru ALEKS.com
I've attempted many times to go to school since having children. I'm still kicking myself for not going straight to college after I got my GED right before Alexa was born. I come from a family who never went to college. My mom didn't, my dad didn't. They both went to trade schools, and my dad is a very successful person today, however my mom is now disabled and can't work. I still always have known I wanted to be a nurse. My aunt is a nurse. I decided to get my EMT when Alexa was a baby, and I've been doing that ever since, and I've always wanted more.
I've been in community college since lex was a year old, majoring in psychology. My plan was to transfer in two to three years to a calstate and get my bachelors. Alexa is now six years old, and I’m still in community college. AAAAH!!! My grades have been good (well until recently), all except for math. There is ONE math course holding me back, which I keep having to drop because I know I’m failing, or I have failed. I’ve taken the course three times, which is the limit. So I’ve petitioned to take it again. It was approved the first time, but way after my registration date.
