I want to pass the GED so I can get a better job, go to college, and get a degree. My friends and family have been helpful to me. They help me study, so I can pass the test.
Good luck! Keep it up, and you’ll be sure to pass!

I finally realized I cant live off my Fiance’s paycheck forever. She is furthering her education, and it would allow me to do the same. My Fiance is my everything. She inspires me to do things every day, but I am so broke that it tears up everything she works for, making me not want to do anything.
I lost my dad last year. Other than my fiance, he was my rock. I changed my rock to my fiance just recently. I’ve gone to off the books college, but I want to be able to get a job easier and prove to my fiance that I am trying. Getting my GED would help a lot. This way I can look for a job, maybe even get one, and go to school just as she does. It would make life easier—change the way I see my future with my soon to be wife. Continue reading
I’ve tried to motivate myself to get my GED, because I want to go back to school. No one has helped me. I try to motive myself, but I can’t. I don’t have the strength. When I try to study, I get so mad because I don’t understand it.
I have three kids. All of them have health problems, with my smallest one having the most. I hope that after I get my GED, I can go to college for nursing, criminal justice, or physical assistance.
I’ve taken GED classes before. I took the test in ’04 without studying, and got low scores. Then I took the test again in ’11, and I still have the same scores. I’m not giving up, but what can I do? Continue reading

I have two kids, and one on the way. I’m facing a tough divorce. I really need a future for my children. One I can depend on.
I have no friends or family to motivate me, but I try my best to encourage and motivate myself. I passed all the areas on the GED test, except for math. I’m having a difficult time getting the information that I need to stick. After I pass, I hope to gain better opportunities as far as work, and the ability to go to school and elevate myself.

What motivated me to get my GED are my 3 beautiful kids. And the strong will to become a nurse. Since I was a child I had always enjoyed helping others.
My husband and children are my motivation to continue on this fulfilling journey to accomplishing my dreams. I got my GED march 14th 2011/ And was top of my class.
Well for starters, I had never planned on ever getting my GED. I had high hopes of graduating high school. And walking down the aisle in front of a huge crowd earning my diploma, while my parents and family were there to cheer me on. Well, that all changed when I got pregnant at 16 years old. I honestly thought I had met my prince charming. But now I realize how far from the truth that really was. I come from a rather wealthy family that always expected perfection from me.

I dropped out of high school in the 10th grade. I want my GED so I can get a job. After I get my GED, I want to join the Army National Guard.
The army offers a lot of opportunities. That’s a great place to start once you’ve passed. Good luck!
