OP definitely isn't alone. That's the same situation I'm in, except I work fewer hours. I can't imagine 60 a week AND school. That's more than I can manage, so OP is obviously quite capable in that aspect.

I'm there right now. Juggling full time work and school. Racking up the debt along the way. I'd better fucking get a good paying job cuz I'm going INSANE right now

64 - I'm going to assume that OP isn't capable because he/she is failing school. I would agree that OP is a beast for taking on that much responsibility, though!

I've been there and done that too. I managed to graduate, but my grades, social life and sleep clearly suffered for it. It really is worth it in the long run, however.

Expensive school? Hell my 2 year degree is costing me 28K at a Community College. If you come from a family where you have to pay for everything on your own, everything is expensive.

Most definitely not out of state. I will admit the Culinary Program does carry an extra $400 a term in fees, but quite a few of the programs out here do as well.

That makes no sense to me. If you have 60 hours of work you musn't have THAT much class right? SO why is it so damned expensive!
I pay like 400 euros a year and I do 30 hours of class a week; you are paying A LOT since 60 hours of work a week won't cover it, and you can't have more than like 20 hours a week of class.
THis is absolutely abysmal, I'm sorry OP, that is really, really unfair.


Maybe OP has rent and other bills to pay besides tuition or other school fees. And it also depends on what kinda job it is. I would work around 12 hours a day, 6 days a week, and I barely had enough to even survive let alone go to school. It's really unfortunate. OP, I hope things work out and that in the end it would have been worth it.

In America tuition for a 30 hour a week class in a decent School would be at least $25 grand a year probly closer to $40 grand there gouvernment pays for nothing

Yeah I wish college was that cheap, as I mentioned above it's costing me $28,000 for just 2 years at a community college. That's not counting my rent and other bills.


I work full time and go to school full time. It can be pretty rough on the sleep and social life for sure. My school is a little over 30,000 dollars a year. That's just tuition.

I feel you. Similar thing, trying to find a job in my specific field I need experience performing that work, but how do I get that experience other than by having that job...?
