I'm definetely staying local, but we'll make it through. If anything my family will help pitch in for college, because as I said, it's not my fault. We were completely fine for college before all this happened.
Besides, most of that I don't even have to take into consideration because I'm staying at home for college so my dad'll help. So as for phone, internet, electric, etc, that's not going to be on my paycheck.
Hopefully things will be easier. Either my mom will start helping or my dad will go to court for it, because all the child support and bills she agreed to pay my dad's been having to pay ALL by himself. =]
I have faith that it's possible, even if it's hard. It's something I'm willing to work for. I've always been very good at school and I probably will only need 3 years of college anyways because I'm taking like..mostly all APclasses anyways.
