    I had both parents till I was 18. The day after I told them what college I decided to go to they told me they were getting a divorce once I left.

    1 month into my first semester in Amherst one parent moved several states away and the other sold the house and moved in with their new romantic partner. I was left homeless (i guess i could have lived in their 1 bedroom appartment on the floor for the summers) and paying for school by myself.

    But I did it, I worked 30 hours a week and took 5 college classes a semester, graduated in 4 years with a few grand in debt, and now i work all the time. Im out of debt 100% too :D.


    YOU CAN DO IT!!!! :)
