Back in March I took on a part-time job on top of the 9-5 I already have which pushed me to working 53 hours a week. With juggling mommy duties for a 5 year old while working until 8 and living 35 minutes away from both towns, I was given the option to move in with my ex mother/father-in-law to put me 10 minutes from one job and 15 from the other. I took it!
So far this has worked out wonderfully, because they are able to help me with my son, cooking and etc. Being a very independent woman and almost 27 years old, not having my own place with my own routine is killing me!
I have a rare opportunity right now though, I can go back to school online and become a CPA to brighten my son and my future tremendously! Being a woman Financial Advisor and a CPA is very rare and will be profitable! I am lucky that where I work at has put me in their business plan for a few years down the road! We have a an online college here in Texas that you can take as many classes as you want in 6 months for one flat fee. If I do the minimum 12 hours a week then it estimates me to have my bachelor's degree in 3-3 1/2 years.
Our mother/son time has been cut dramatically, we get an hour in the morning and about 30 minutes at night. He completely understands why "Mama is doing what she is doing" though. He is starting kindergarten in two weeks and his grandparents have said they will help with picking him up from school, homework, and etc. I luckily get to take him! My normal week goes like this;
Sunday-Family Day/Church/pool etc.
Monday- Work 9-5 & 5:15-8
Tuesday- Work 9-5 & 5:15-8
Wednesday- Work 9-5 & 5:15-8
Thursday- Work 9-5 & 5:15-8
Friday- Work 9-3 & 3:15-8
Saturday- Work 12-8
If I quit my part-time job, there is no way I would be able to have my own place in 6 months like I planned already. So that means I would either have to work both jobs, go to school, and get my own place. Keep working both jobs, go to school, and stay where I am Or work my 9-5 job, go to school, and stay living where I am until I earn my degree. Or ??? I am open for any and all advise y'all have!
