I'm Tired of My Life

What motivated you to get your GED degree? Well, I’m tired of my life. I’m a father of three kids, and I think that I need to do something better for myself and my family and our future. I realized that I needed to take GED classes. By getting my GED, I hope I can motivate my kids.

How have your friends and family helped you? They give me courage and strength. Especially my fiance. She told me to grow up and be a father, to be responsible.

What problems have you faced? Financial Issues. I need to find my dream job. I was working in a factory for five years, but it seemed like a dead end. So, I decided to do something diffrent this year. I really dont know if I can afford to pay for classes. I’m a stay at home parent, and I’m willing to try everything I can to succeed.

What do you hope to gain from getting your GED degree? I’m hoping for a brighter future for my kids. I hope for the American dream that everyone wants. My goals are a dream home for my family, a dream job so nobody has to worry about money, and a dream wife. I’m hoping for this year to be the best year of my life.

Do you have more to your story? I’m 34 years old, I have three kids and no GED certificate, no high school diploma, and no high school equivalency. I quit school maybe 20 years ago. I’ve had problems with the law in the past because of drinking and driving. I decided to stop drinking and take care my responsibilities. I have served 40 days in jail and 90 days in the treatment. I’m also going to a substance abuse class once a week and also attempting A.A. meetings.
