As some of you know, I have been searching for a new job for a couple of months now. I have sent my resume to many places and have gone on one interview.
I recently requested my transcripts from the two colleges I went to before my BH and I got married. I have an associates degree in early childhood education and (I thought) a bachelors degree in psychology. Although it isnt the Masters degree I always thought I would get, I thought it was a decent educational background to help me get a new job.
So today as I was looking at my transcripts I realized that I had no graduation date or degree listed from the school where I received my bachelors degree. After looking at the website I discovered that I am missing 7 credits and dont really have a degree.
I am absolutelty panicking now for so many reasons....I have already emailed the college and will be speaking to them on Monday, but in the meantime I have so many thoughts running through my mind...all the hard work and time I spent in school means nothing now. I feel like I wasted all that time. One of the few things I was proud of for accomplishing has been a lie, and I had no clue!!! How does that even happen??
So, all that aside I am also panicking because what this means for my current job search. I am hoping the issue will be a few overlooked credits and will be easily fixed, but if not, I will have to finish the degree.
That means my job search has been destroyed....there is very little I am qualified to do without my degree...if I dont get a new job then how am I going to get away from AP and his happy little (now expecting) family?
I realize I could leave there and move on to another preschool, which would solve the issue with the AP, but that doesnt help me with my plan of making more money so I can get on my feet, out of my parents, and into a place of my own for my daughter and I, since my BH is living in limbo land.
I feel like I had finally been making some progress on fixing myself and fixing my life. I had a plan for what I was going to do for myself and my daughter if my BH decides not to R, and I felt like I was finally getting on track. And now all that has come crashing down because of one stupid little piece of paper!!!
