No matter what, finish. Get a degree in something. It’s very difficult to survive in today’s world without a college degree. Be committed, and get it done during the period of life when accomplishing it is the easiest. Set goals and re-set goals until you finally achieve. This is such an important skill to develop; it’s one you’ll use all throughout life.

Before moving on, let me reiterate tip No. 2. Get your degree! You never know what the future holds. You very well could end up a widow, divorced, or with a spouse who somehow winds up disabled. Get yourself in the best position possible to handle whatever life brings.
