Tired of the Embarrassment
I was motivated to get my GED to get a better job and to show my son never give up! Everyone in my family and at work all motivated me to finish strong.
I have been working at the same job for over 10 years that does not require a GED. I applied for a better job and had 2 interviews and felt I did very well, but when asked what education I had, I skipped the topic and talked about my experience. I didn’t get the job. I was hurt and embarrassed. Three days later I began to study online free videos and lessons for the GED. Then I also bought GED ACADEMY online.
Everyone who gets their GED should go to college to further their education. I would too but I am going to move out of country and run a business on a beach and enjoy life at a young age.
I dropped out of school in the beginning of 10th grade. I stopped doing school work in the 8th grade. I am ADD, and wouldn’t pay attention to anything I am not interested in. I work 2 full time jobs 72 to 80 hours a week, and have a 16 year old son and a wife. I was studying very hard for less than 3 months, I passed all my 4 test individually on each try without failing. I can finally get sleep and get 1 really good job now. I’m so happy and proud that I accomplished getting my GED. If I can pass the tests anyone can if they just put in the study time to prepare. My resources were test prep skills, mometrix and of course the GED ACADEMY Online.
