    same time I think about my parents They depend on me for so much right now How will I ever be able to attend classes work full time and be at home to help out Then the friendly radio voice mentions earning college credits at home Did they just say that they offer online flexible classes Now that is something that could work for me and I make a mental note to call CCBC s admissions office on my lunch break to schedule an appointment That was six weeks ago Up until then I felt that I was constantly running but never getting anywhere stuck in place with no hope for a change in sight Look at me now I just completed my first two classes earned six credits and have already registered for two more classes for next semester I am working on earning specific credits that apply to my chosen career path social work My supervisor has already given me a promotion and a brighter future is clearer and closer than it has ever been before It hasn t been easy but it has been rewarding I get frustrated at times doing classes online because my computer freezes up or my mother needs help with my father during a timed test My father is bed ridden and while my mom does her best to avoid interrupting me there are times it cannot be avoided My professors have been understanding about my situation however it has still cost me a few points here and there My family is proud of me I am proud of me My boss is proud of me Who knows I may even decide to keep going and earn my associate s degree I think I finally found the right road to my future Chris A Day in the Life CHRIS I have such a feeling of accomplishment as I submit my application for graduation I can t help thinking how this journey began almost three years ago I was living on my own working a seasonal construction job I hated that job it was boring and back breaking work for low pay That day I didn t even have enough money for the bus ride home and had to beg a co worker for a ride I remembered my dream of being an engineer and decided that since CCBC was so close to home I would take the bus after my next pay day and visit the campus When I arrived on campus that day I was directed to the information desk and after that it all happened like clockwork I enrolled in classes kept working to supplement my financial aid and cover the costs of tuition and books completed the requirements for an associate s degree in Pre Engineering and am now ready to graduate To be honest thought I m not even sure anyone knew I was there Looking back on my experience at CCBC it would have been nice to make more friends get some extra help with my writing skills find a faculty mentor or even participate in an internship program Regardless I accomplished my goals and am ready to move on But still I have ask myself What s next I ve come to the bend in the road to my future Clarence A Day in the Life CLARENCE It takes me forever to get ready to go anywhere I am 25 years old and in a wheelchair so even everyday tasks like getting dressed and brushing my teeth are slow going for me and usually require extra assistance When you re in a chair it s hard to feel like you ve ever grown up Everyone s always doing stuff for you They get freaked out by saying the wrong things so they coddle you Sometimes it s hard to ever picture a life of being totally self sufficient Deciding to go to college was a big step for me but it s the first time in my life have ever felt like a grown man and that has been the greatest gift I want to be a writer and I ve found that for the most part my professors at CCBC and the staff in the Supportive Services Office are very helpful Sometimes instructors don t understand at first that classroom work has to be adjusted for me and sometimes students ignore me but I understand and am more or less used to that It s been that way my whole life I have the intelligence to succeed but often little things deter me Sometimes the building doors are just too heavy for me to manage on my own and sometimes the elevators are super slow or too busy for me to get to class on time I ve joined the writer s club and I ve found that the student advisor is very friendly She has urged me to get involved in student government and I think that would help for other students to see me as just another student I want to be treated like everyone else There are certainly days when I feel like giving up but overall I am glad that I m at CCBC Still as graduation day approaches I worry that when I transfer to a larger campus I may not fit in as well or be as successful In fact I often find myself slowing my academic progress down because I m not sure I want to leave Maybe the road to my future stops right here David A Day in the Life DAVID Looking back I can still see the festive red white and blue banner proclaiming Welcome Home David blowing in the breeze as my family ran to greet me at the airport four months ago Since then things have not exactly gone according to plan What I thought were flexible employable skills acquired during my time in the military I am coming to find out are not transferable to current job openings Not that there are that many out there to begin with it After spending the past four years of my life defending our country in Afghanistan I am finding it harder than I imagined to get back into the routine of normal life My world view has changed I have changed In high school I was an average student but excelled once I joined the Marines after graduation While there I learned how to drive tanks and acquired skills for sharp shooting and handheld radar usage in the field I was exposed to some of the most cutting edge technology available to man today I even worked in the office helping with bookkeeping and accounting But who cares Look where it s gotten me now that I am back home on American soil exactly nowhere Talk about going from hero to zero huh To add to the pressure I am constantly putting on myself to find something to do I am going to be a father soon My wife Stephanie is pregnant with our first child While in the Marines I had steady pay and benefits Now I need to be at home with my growing family I am glad to be home don t get me wrong But I need to be able to work and to earn family sustaining wages too Sitting on the fold out couch my wife and I are currently occupying in my mother s basement I realize I need to find a job sooner rather than later I have nine months give or take before the baby arrives My wife can hold down her job as a beautician for a little while longer but then it will all be up to me Fast track training with guaranteed job opportunities waiting for me when I finish is exactly what I need Unfortunately I just don t know where to start looking I hear a lot of talk about the new types of jobs coming to our region and I know that there are Veteran s Benefits out there for guys like me to go back to school but I am at loose ends as to where to go from here The next evening over Chinese take out Stephanie suggests I stop by the local CareerLink office for information on job openings and training opportunities With nothing better to do to fill my days the next morning I head off to CareerLink where a sign in the window announces information sessions for an upcoming welding training program at Community College of Beaver County I open the door step inside and ask the lady behind the desk Where do I sign up I think I just found my road to my future Emily A Day in the Life EMILY My alarm goes off and the radio immediately starts blaring out the latest Taylor Swift song Grumbling to myself I roll over slam the snooze button and pull the covers back up over my head Not long after that I hear my mom s voice shouting up at me from the bottom of the stairs It s time to get up Good thing I have mom around or I would probably never make it to my early morning classes at CCBC or to my shifts at Starbucks She keeps me on schedule that s for sure Slowly I tumble out of bed dressing in leggings an over sized GAP sweater and my favorite pair of UGG boots As I make my way downstairs I mentally scroll through my to do list for the day Classes from 9 a m noon Tanning appointment at 1 p m Work shift at Starbucks from 3 9 p m Finish and submit research paper I quickly send off a text message to my best friend Katie asking her if she wants to meet up for lunch on campus later Then I grab a muffin and a banana from the kitchen counter and I m out the door and ready to start my day While this isn t exactly how I pictured spending my college days I can t complain Yes there are no dorms no sororities to join and no roommate to cram with before finals but my parents have promised me that if I used the first two years at CCBC to figure out what I wanted to do work to save money and make good grades then they would pay for the remaining two years of my education at the four year college or university of my choice And though at first I gave them a hard time and felt embarrassed to admit to my fellow seniors that I was going to Cuck A Buck A after graduation it was a deal I just couldn t pass up With one year down and one to go I am getting ready to move on Earning my bachelor s degree is important to me especially now that I have decided I want to be a lawyer I have exceled in the classroom here at CCBC and have an impressive list of extracurricular activities on my transcript including Student Government President Transfer should be a breeze Looking back I have to admit that my parents were right on this one CCBC was the smart place for me to start both academically and financially Now I am well on my way and the road to my future is headed straight for success Heather A Day in the Life HEATHER I have always enjoyed my job at the Penny Saver but with the changes in the field people really aren t reading newspapers anymore I got into this job when I finished my associate s degree but since then I haven t had time to take additional classes in order to brush up on my skills and I think it s hurting my chances for advancement I am torn about what to do next though At this point in my life I want to be able to raise my children and only work part time This job has been perfect for that Some weeks I can get almost 30 hours without it being steady full time work The job is manageable with my duties as wife and mother and I like the people I work with Still the next morning as I pack lunches get the kids on the school bus and run through the day s always hectic schedule I can t help think that I am missing the boat here With the rise of social media and the constantly changing technology used in the advertising and communications fields my employer has asked me to go back to school so that I can help their rapidly expanding digital advertising department reach more clients To do that successfully I will certainly need to update my skills in a short amount of time Not to mention that a better paying job would finally allow my husband and I to start saving money for our kids college educations in the not too distant future Maybe the right time to go back to school is finally here The kids are old enough to do homework on their own and I can even join them while we all study together I know that my husband would be very supportive of me attending classes again The trouble is I just don t know where to start I d love to finally earn my Bachelor s degree but I think I need to ease back into the classroom and take some brush up classes first Plus I have PTO book club and other family related activities that I want to make sure I can still do Wherever I decide to go I will need help along the way with time management technology study skills and job hunting Later that evening as I sit in the crowd at my son s junior high basketball game I hear two other parents discussing the scholarship their eldest child received to attend Community College of Beaver County Maybe there s place for me there too A place where I can get started and supported all at the same time that just might be where the road to my family s future starts Jessica A Day in the Life JESSICA I can hear her muffled cries over the baby monitor and know that my one year old daughter Chloe has just woken up from her afternoon nap I hastily toss the Child Psychology textbook I was highlighting aside and rush down the steps to her crib Trying to fit study time into each day certainly is proving challenging I get up at 6 a m every morning unless my daughter wakes up earlier I try to find time to sit and have a cup of coffee but usually I chug a lukewarm cup while getting myself and my daughter bathed fed and dressed for the day ahead I either work or have school every day In fact today I have an 8 a m class After getting ready I load up the diaper bag and head to my daughter s daycare After dropping her off I go straight to campus since I usually have lots of last minute tasks to accomplish before class even starts Today for example I have a paper to print out since we don t have a computer at home right now Between classes I try to find time to do a little studying since it is really hard to concentrate and focus once I get home Looking after a toddler saps all my attention and energy Right now I live with my boyfriend in a small apartment in a less than desirable part of town At the age of 19 this is just not how I pictured my life I wish I could get more involved in activities at CCBC but right now I don t have time as I try to balance work school and childcare My boyfriend currently works two part time jobs while I work one part time job and attend CCBC in hopes of becoming a teacher one day With our crazy schedules we don t get to spend much time together as a couple but we know that we have responsibilities that have to be taken care of now No more weekend parties or late night dates Thankfully public assistance helps us make ends meet Today was the day I was finally going to get some quiet study time by spending a few hours in the library before picking Chloe up But all that changed when my boss called to say that one of the other waitresses was sick and he needed me to come in for the dinner rush That means making arrangements to have someone get Chloe at daycare for me and of course sacrificing my already limited study time With a deep sigh of regret and frustration I toss my books in the back of my car and head off to work Today is a busy day and waitressing is tiring stuff I can t imagine doing this for the rest of my life After work I drive home cook dinner toss laundry in the washing machine and spend a few precious hours with my beautiful daughter After I put her to bed I finally cram in some study time before dropping into bed exhausted As I said this isn t exactly how I thought my life would turn out after high school graduation but I know it is going to get better I am determined to do well at CCBC now that I am here My daughter is the most important thing in my life and I want to make sure she gets everything that she deserves A college degree and a career in teaching will give me that opportunity If I can just keep it all together I will find that the road to my future
