Back to School again….

So I will be starting School again in a few days.  I am doing the Ohio Dominican Universities LEAD program, it is a one night a week accelerated program designed for working adults, which is what I need.  I don’t have to select classes they are selected for me and I will go through my education with the same group of people like in elementary school.  There is a lot of group work and homework but I will have my Associates in two years and my BA in four which is faster than most students actually finish school.

Why does financial aid have to be so complicated?  I spent a few hours asking the government for my money so I can pay for school.  It is a little annoying if they just let me keep it I would be able to pay for school without asking for my money back.  Anyway, I don’t want to get off on that but I may not be able to post as often as I like but I will still try.  I would really like if people responded one way or another to the posts here so I know who is reading and what you think.  I am always open to constructive criticism and I believe that is the best way to improve.

Well just wanted to let everyone know what is going on in my life.

Congratulations and Good for You!!!

On the college tuition note:

I have a friend that has put $2000 a year in a saving account for his daughter. She is 10 now and he has 20k in the account. It now earns $75 a month in interest. He said he was putting it in an account so she could use it for school, but then said he expects her to still get school loans to pay for college and use then use the interest on this money to pay the monthly payments. She gets funds for college, then interest pays the payments, and when its all said and done, she’ll have $40k in an account to use as she wants. I find it amazing how money can work for you if you know how to work it. I’m not sure I can put that much away for Zander every year (I am about 6k behind already on that scale) but I am going to get started. Can you imagine doing that with 4 or 5 kids? That would be about 8-10k a year in savings…. 🙂
