Hi all, I am 23 and currently working as a customer service rep. I have a two year old daughter who I have two days a week. I have been considering going to school to study engineering. The largest thing I am worrying about is whether I have time to persue a degree which is so demanding. My current work schedule is 12 hour shifts on Saturday, Sunday and Monday and then a 4 hour shift on tuesday. I then keep my daughter on Thursdays and Fridays. If I decide to go back to school I could probably switch my work schedule to working twelves on Sat and Sun and then 8 hour evening shifts Monday and Tuesday. This would leave me with 8am - 3pm free on Monday and Tuesday and then Wednesdays completely free. I would have time for studying while I keep my daughter as she goes to bed fairly early and could also study for a few hours after I get off work. Is it even reasonable to believe I have time to get a degree in engineering? Is the idea of working my course schedule around just 3 days even be possible? I plan on starting at a local community college and then hopefully transfering to University of Alabama Huntsville. After 5 years of living in the "real" world I am starting to understand the need for education and also how nice it would be to work in a job where I could realize some of my potential. Not to mention that living off 11 dollars an hour is not exactly easy somtimes :P I definitely have the drive to accomplish this, I'm just hoping I have the time.
