I am 27 year old single mother, I finally know what I really want to do with my life and that is be a writer. I got back into school after a 6 year absence and was just approved for fin. aid last Wendsday which was the same day as the last day to add/drop. The refund check will be 2200. I dont have to pay rent nor daycare because I would be out of school by the time my son is. I currently work in collections an it is not the field I ever wanted to be in, it is just a job. My dream is to go to school in the day and find a part time job at evening so I can focus on my studies and supplement for my car payment, elec and daycare i would have to pay to go to work and food. My question is should I quit my full time job or give up my dream?

Hi there.I am a 28 year old male, who is also in the collections industry. I am currently in the process of going back to school, and I am well aware of entrapment of collections(commissions..etc, but its not a long term solution. My advice would be to go back to school no matter what. I know its tough with a full time job, but it is possible. best wishes....
