Let me start by saying I am 34 years old. I dropped out of HS at the age of 14 when I thought I knew better than everyone. Well guess what. I didn't. Todays age does not allow for you to be a drop out and still be able to eat very well. At least not in the fields I am good at. I tried to get my GED several times faily each and every time. It did not allow for my busy lifestyle. I then learned I could earn a diploma online. So I did it. I found a course of study that would allow me to go at my own pace. Well today I finished my courses and am officially done. At 34 years old I have graduated from HS. Maybe soon I will start college who knows.
