I really missed being a student :( Even though I really want to go back to school but I can't because no one will take care of my son. It's been 2 years since I stopped schooling because of my own fault. I admit it was my fault. I got pregnant when I am studying that is why I stopped. But I am happy of what I am now, my baby is a blessing to us. I am looking forward to study this coming school year if I can find a baby sitter. And I want my parents to be proud of me someday. I want to proved them that I can achieved my dream even if I disappoint them once. I know God has a good plan for me. And I know he will just around to guide me.

I admire you for realizing your mistakes and I am happy to hear to you didn't fear admitting to your parents that you were pregnant. I know a classmate of mine who decided to abort her baby just for her to continue her studies. I hope you'll continue your dreams of finishing your school.

Thank you for your nice response. What kind of person your classmate has? She sacrifice his baby just to finish her study. I don't think I can do that. Baby is a blessing.

That is right, friend. Try to reach your dream, because your knowledge from school will help you in the future, even not only for yourself but also for your child. I think he also proud with you if you can continue your study although you have a huge activities as a mom. Have a nice day, friend. I hope God bless you.

Keep up those positive thoughts and attitude. You're right, you may have made a mistake before but that doesn't mean that you wouldn't be able to get back on track. You really need to be able to finish your studies even more now that you already have a baby. It will be for the baby's future more than yours now.

Yeah, having a baby is truly a blessing. I also miss being a student, that's why I'll enroll this coming semester. I also want to make my parents happy since I have greatly disappointed them as well. I should have graduated by now from engineering school but due to my faults, I have just wasted my time, my parent's money, and other resources for the past 4 1/2 years. I am thankful that my parents are understanding (especially my mom), they allowed me to shift to another course and transfer to another school, even though I know this really has disappointed my father since I used to study in the University of the Philippines but I have decided that I would like to pursue a different course which is Accountancy (hopefully if I pass the entrance exam and interview), if not Business Administration Major in Marketing will do.

Like you, I quit law school when I found out I was pregnant. During that time, my baby is my top priority and I wanted to be with her that's why I quit. But I'm planning to go back once she's big enough :) And I want my parents to be proud of me too :) I do hope you'll be able to go back and finish your studies. Think of your son as your motivation to push harder in order to succeed in life :) For sure you can do it! :)

I have the same situation as yours before. I stopped studying though because my father can't afford it anymore so I work and study at the same time, but later on got tired and decided to just work then I got pregnant. I miss going to school too after 2 years of being a wife and an employee but I know I cant because I need to work to pay bills, I now have a 3 years old son and I finished my college course too, without needing a nanny...I have this feeling that they can't take care of my baby better that I want them to be and nanny in my country are not that useful, most of the time they are burden. spoiled and self-centered person (based on the 4 nannies that I have tried when I needed to go back to work). I took the distance education which I found online. :) I have my degree without needing to leave my son to people who doesn't treasure trust and life of my love ones.

Good day Kmz059, There are certain things in my life that I also misses. At some point, I do missed being a student but, what I misses most was the time that I have worked in a Consultant company. That, I am still looking forward that an another chance will be given to me. With regard to your post, I believed, you can go back the soonest possible time. As I gauge your will, you are a persistent person. As you will do your best just to get on to the top.

Well, I have finished my studies, taking my diploma in 1997. To be honest by saying that the certificate I have taken with difficulty, because I was not sure of the type of student model. However, but now after 16 years, and I miss them very regret those moments! My classmates, friends of the era, and especially my situation, while not great, it was certainly much better than the current one. Then I had multiple perspectives, for work and for my future. But now it seems like every door was closed to me, in all material respects.

You can and will make it back to school if that is your desire, even if it takes longer than most. I dropped out of high school and received my GED. Had my two children and now that the youngest is 9, I am returning to school in the fall for nursing. I have the advantage of having my mother to help get my children on and off the bus, but the nursing school I will be attending actually has an on-site daycare for those that need the help. Just so you know, it can be done when the time is right for you!

I'm still in college, but I think I really will miss school when I graduate. I like school a lot, even if it pressures me and stresses me out and there are always projects and homework.

When I was in college, I always say to myself, when I am going to graduate? I'm tired of studying my lessons every night specially during exams, tired of seeing my terror instructors, and tired of waking up early and doing all the projects. But now, after 3 years I graduated, it seems like life is never been boring. I miss my college days. And I feel like I don't know anything now. I am planning on studying again. Six months courses would be fine. Just to improve myself more.
