    I told you guys I was thinking about going to college but now have something else to worry about. I was told I might not get any help since I don't have any kids. What difference does that make? Just because I'm single and have no kids doesn't mean I have money to go to school. Don't they just go by your income?

    This just reminds me of when it comes to filing taxes for single and no kids. We get no breaks like the others who have kids or are married. Just thought I'd throw that in. LOL..

    Thanks,Keke. Just me stressing again.

    I know about the tax thing. I just had to say it though. I know how much it takes to raise kids. I raised my niece and have helped with most of the others.

    you need to first fill out the fafsa..go to college counselor or you can go online and do it...i did mine at college...

    then ask about any possible scholarships or grants that may be available...

    then there are always student loans....

    in california they have three different types of bogg fee waivers...i qualified based on my income of ssdi and child support/spousal...anyways...

    if there is a will there is a way...
