    Rexy, congrats on having gotten your foot in the door.

    Now that you have started don't stop. I didn't see you mention your Military benefits from your service in the Air Force. If you haven't used them yet look into that as a way to continue on to get your MA.

    For me they reduced my tuition to where I could afford school and then after I graduated with a BA, paid for more specialized training afterwards.

    Also consider teaching while you learn. Teachers don't make much, but they get some great educational opportunities.

    Personally I think the idea of getting an education is not just to certify you as employable, but also to provide you the skills to educate yourself about the things you are interested in.

    You might be surprised to learn how far you can go teaching yourself about things like medicine, cooking, history, law, science, boatbuilding, navigation, linguistics, mathematics, or even things like art and music, building trades, gardening and foraging for food.
